2022 Toyota Sequoia Informative Car Review

Toyota Sequoia


The Toyota Sequoia is desperately hanging onto relevancy for 2022, yet it remains difficult to overlook the subpar quality of its interior materials and outdated infotainment system. Additionally, this vehicle's independent rear suspension fails to provide a smooth ride on bumpy roads; in fact, squeakiness easily infiltrates the cabin during such journeys. Though third-row seating comes standard along with an array of active safety features, these advantages might not be enough to make up for all of this SUV’s downsides.

Toyota pairs its powerful 381-hp V-8 with a six speed automatic transmission and either rear or four wheel drive, making it adept at towing up to 7000 pounds. Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of fuel economy. TRD fans can admire the off road readiness that this model provides; however, overall there is not much else enthralling about the 2022 Sequoia - though hopefully soon we will see an even better generation makeover!

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Sequoia is ready for the road with a powerful 381-hp V-8 engine and 6 speed automatic transmission, along with either rear or all wheel drive options. We tried out this vehicle and it was impressively fast in city driving conditions; its gas pedal was sensitive to touch while the gear shifts were silky smooth. When you need to merge on highways or overtake other vehicles, rest assured that there's an abundance of power available for precisely these situations! Despite being built off a truck chassis, the modern design of its rear suspension adds another layer of finesse which can only be appreciated when riding in it.

While the Toyota isolated us from the most severe bumps, too much shaking and rattling entered our cabin when driving over rough surfaces. None of its competitors provided a thrilling ride, yet they handled better and felt more composed. The light steering was simple to maneuver in small spaces as well as on highways; however, without feedback it further compromised its handling capabilities.

The Sequoia's brake pedal was straightforward to use and hardened after the initial input. The TRD Pro model features legitimate off-road capabilities including a lifted suspension, robust shock absorbers, and specialized wheels with thick tires. While it can manage up to 7400 pounds of weight in tow, several of its competitors can take on an additional 1000 pounds or more.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

If you're looking for a gas guzzler, the Toyota Sequoia is your car! It has some of the lowest EPA estimates and real-world fuel economy ratings in its class with just 13 mpg city and 17 mpg highway. In our testing, we even got 16mpg on our highway route - 1 short of its rating.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Toyota stuffs every Sequoia with a bunch of standard safety and driver-assistance technologies. While its competitors offer most of the same equipment, these features are largely optional on those rivals. This may help justify the Toyota's questionable sticker price, but only for those who want driver assists in the first place. For more information about the Sequoia's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.

Is the Toyota Sequoia reliable?
