At this moment, the Toyota Sequoia seems around as old as the trees it’s named after. However part of that was due to the fact that it was based on the previous-generation Expanse, which was also really darn old. But there’s a brand-new version of the truck, currently, so it’s not that shocking the company is teasing the brand-new SUV, as well.
Toyota really did not rather come out as well as claim that explicitly, however there are some clear hints. Journalism release had the heading “The Next Big Thing from Toyota,” emphasis ours. And most clear was the following sentence disclosed after having fun with the exposure of the teaser: “The woodland, and its trees, virtually in view.”
We anticipate the Sequoia will certainly remain to be based upon the Expanse, specifically as production is relocating to the Tundra’s San Antonio plant. That means it will still be body-on-frame building and construction, as well as under the hood will likely be the twin-turbo V6s from the truck, consisting of the hybrid. Unlike the vehicle, the Sequoia will probably remain to use independent back suspension, specifically considering that its closest rivals, the Ford Expedition, Chevy Tahoe as well as Jeep Wagoneer, have all mosted likely to independent rear suspension. Toyota really did not give an expose date, however we should see the Sequoia shown at some time this year.
