2023 Toyota Sequoia: Release Date, Price, and Specs

By automotive standards, the current-generation Toyota Sequoia full-size SUV is ancient. It was first introduced back in 2007. To keep up with the SUV competition, the Sequoia needed an overhaul — and it finally got one. The 2023 Toyota Sequoia just made its debut. It’s a welcome change, for the 2023 Sequoia incorporates many of the favorable elements of the redesigned 2022 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup truck. Find out the release date, price, and specs of the all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia.

The release date of the 2023 Toyota Sequoia will be in Summer 2022. It will be available for sale at dealerships throughout the United States and North America, as well as in select international markets. The 2023 Sequoia will be built at the Toyota manufacturing plant in San Antonio, Texas. It’s the same plant in which the Tundra is built. 

Buyers of the redesigned 2023 Sequoia have a choice of five trims: SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, and an all-new Capstone trim. The Capstone trim was first introduced for the Tundra, and offers the ultimate in luxury and premium features.

How much does the 2023 Toyota Sequoia cost?

Toyota didn’t yet release the price information for the 2023 Sequoia. However, the starting price will likely be around $50,000 for the base-level SR5 trim, while the range-topping Capstone trim will probably cost around $70,000.

All 2023 Sequoia models feature an iForce MAX hybrid system. Combining power from a twin-turbo V-6 engine and an electric motor, it generates 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid system is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Do you have towing needs? The maximum towing capacity of the 2023 Sequoia is 9,000 pounds. You’ll have to wait to find out the fuel economy estimates for the Sequoia, though, for Toyota didn’t yet release this information. 

The redesigned 2023 Sequoia will ride on the Toyota TNGA-F platform. It’s the same platform that underpins the Tundra, as well as the global Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX luxury SUVs. The Sequoia will also offer rear air springs and adaptive dampers. For the off-road capable TRD Pro trim, the Sequoia features 2.5-inch Fox dampers and 33-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires.
