Peters' Garage: 2020 Toyota Sequoia
Sometimes, new and improved isn't. Improved, that is.
The 2020 Toyota Sequoia isn't new -- but that's because it doesn't need much improving. Toyota has been selling it the same way since 2008 because ... it sells.
And you don't risk improving on that.
What It Is
The Sequoia is Toyota's full-size SUV with three rows of seats, body-on-frame construction and the largest standard V-8 engine in the class.
Prices start at $49,980 for the base SR5 trim.
A top of the line Platinum four-wheel-drive trim -- which includes a load-leveling suspension and a power-folding third row -- stickers for $69,245.
The TRD Pro gets Fox heavy-duty off-road shocks, beefier front and rear sway bars, running boards, a tubular roof rack coated with the same no-slip material used for the bedliner in the Tundra pickup (which is the Sequoia's sheetrock-carrying fraternal twin), and a pair of Rigid LED fog lights built into the far corners of the front bumper.
