The Sequoia appeared back in 2008 for the first time with the Tundra pickup truck platform and it managed to remain as one of the oldest full-size SUVs on the market.
The last update was two years ago but many of the former fans were already asking for a new redesign. So, what can you expect from the 2018 Toyota Sequoia? Will it be worth the waiting?
Most probably, we will see an improvement in the engines as well as changes in the trims. The 2018 Toyota Sequoia will have the SR5, SR5FFV, Limited, Limited FFV, Platinum and Platinum FFV available.
Even though many people don’t like the old Sequoia, Toyota managed to keep this model in the top positions of its segment and this shouldn’t change with the 2018 Toyota Sequoia.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Release Date
Since the 2018 Toyota Sequoia will not have too many changes, it is expected that its release happens in late 2018.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Price
The prices of the 2018 Toyota Sequoia should remain practically the same, ranging between the $49,000 and the $69,000. After all, this is the range where their major competitors – Armada, Expedition, and Durango – are.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Redesign and Changes
So far, we have seen that the changes in the exterior design of the 2018 Toyota Sequoia will not be many. It is possible that it may look more like the Tundra, with a larger radiator grille and narrower headlights. Toyota is really trying and managing to keep the new design a secret.
One of the main changes that are expected in the 2018 Toyota Sequoia is the platform. The design should be more lightweight using aluminum. This decrease in the weight will help with the fuel economy.

2018 Toyota Sequoia Specs
There should be a change in the 2018 Toyota Sequoia engine. The new engine should be an iForce 5.7-liter V8, which produces 400 horsepower, replacing the old 4.6-liter V8, which produced 310 horsepower.
In what concerns the transmission, you should expect to get a 6-speed automatic. Despite this option may be worse in what regards with the fuel economy, it definitely gives you a better driving experience and a better gear shifting as well.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Interior
We should expect to get a completely new design of the interior of the 2018 Toyota Sequoia, according to the latest design trends of the brand.
The cabin will remain spacious and the seats comfortable. It should be able to accommodate 8 passengers with a lot of room for both legs and heads.
You can also expect to see a tri-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, and a telescopic/tilt-adjustable steering wheel. Included in all standard models, Toyota should put available the Siri Eyes, the Toyota’s Entune Audio System, a rearview camera, and the USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
The dashboard should include an infotainment system on a 6.1-inch touchscreen, an HD and satellite radio, among others.
