Body-on-frame trucks have long been trusted by people who rely on their vehicles to get the job done. The reliable construction lays the groundwork for a powerful vehicle with outstanding capability. It's no wonder that Toyota chose this construction when it set out to create an SUV that combines modern safety, innovative technology, and impressive power. The result? An SUV that can tow the big toys, seat up to 8-passengers, and still feel like a luxurious experience.

The Perfect Ride for...

The whole family. With second-row climate control, plenty of outlets for keeping devices charged, space for up to 8 passengers, a 120V AC power outlet, and tons of cargo space, the 2020 Sequoia has enough space and amenities for the entire family. Count on the extensive standard safety features to keep your most precious cargo safe, whether it’s a trip to a game or a trip across the country.

Drive & Handling

The 2020 Toyota Sequoia features a 5.7-liter i-FORCE V8, which may sound like your typical SUV, but it also qualifies as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II, which means that you can have all the power and space of an SUV, while being environmentally conscious. Linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission, this powerhouse is available as the standard 2-wheel-drive or you can opt for the Multi-Mode 4-wheel-drive with Torsen® limited-slip center differential to tackle whatever the road (or off-road) throws at you.

If the possibility of 120 cubic feet of cargo space just isn’t enough, the 2020 Sequoia can tow up to 7,400 pounds,* so you never have to leave the necessities behind. Enjoy the ability to tow a boat, trailer, camper, or other heavy load with this powerful SUV. It even features a TOW/HAUL mode so that your transmission can take on the job with ease.

Key Features


The available Entune™ Premium Audio system with Integrated Navigation and Entune App Suite means you’re always connected. Get directions, listen to your favorite playlists, and even get updates on weather, stocks, and sports, all from the comfort of the Sequoia's cavernous cabin. If you want the premier audio experience, opt for the available JBL® audio system, which features 14 speakers, a subwoofer, and an amplifier. Bluetooth® connectivity, an auxiliary cable, and a USB port give you a variety of ways to stay connected.

Toyota Safety Sense™ P

Protecting your whole family shouldn’t be an available option, and that’s why several of the most advanced driver assistance features come standard on the 2020 Toyota Sequoia. Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection scans the road ahead for possible collisions and can even apply the brakes if you don’t have time to react. Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System monitors the road markings to make sure you’re always in the correct lane, and it can even apply gentle steering corrections if you deviate from your intended lane. Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control make trips a little easier by using semi-autonomous technology to control your headlights and maintain a set distance from the vehicle ahead of you.

Alternative Options

If you want the versatility of an SUV in a more compact and fuel-efficient body, then a crossover may be a better option for you. The Toyota RAV4 is one of the original leaders of the crossover revolution. However, if you want the most fuel-efficient option in the Toyota lineup, you should know that the Toyota Prius can achieve remarkable fuel economy with all the tech you need and even has available all-wheel-drive for more adventurous drivers.
