Unlike the compact and midsize crossover segments, the non-luxury, full-size SUV market is dominated by American brands. As such, the 2024 Toyota Sequoia is a bit of an outsider, but it’s one that still has plenty of appeal, plus Toyota’s solid reputation for quality and reliability. The 2024 Sequoia is available now with a base MSRP of $60,875, but is this the price most shoppers can expect for the Japanese brand’s large SUV, or should they expect to spend a lot more for desirable features locked away in upper-tier trims?

The 2024 Toyota Sequoia’s trim levels  

The 2024 Toyota Sequoia is available in five trims — the base SR5, Limited, Platinum, all-terrain focused TRD Pro, and the luxe Capstone. There is a significant price jump between the models, with the SR5 commanding just under $61,000 (excluding destination) and the Capstone topping the range at $77,965.

Making the choice a bit easier, all models are powered by Toyota’s iForce Max Hybrid powertrain, a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6 paired with an electric motor for a total output of 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard on most models, with four-wheel drive available on all but the TRD Pro, which is exclusively 4WD. Towing capacities depend on the trim selection and either RWD/4WD configurations, but no matter the model, the capable Sequoia can tow about 9,000 pounds.

How we’d spec the 2024 Sequoia

With a budget-conscious approach, we’d stick with the base SR5 model, which comes with a long list of standard features.

The SR5 is fitted with 18-inch wheels, LED front exterior lights, roof rails, heated and power-folding exterior mirrors, keyless entry, and a power moonroof. Inside, it sports tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, push-button start, a digital gauge cluster, and an eight-speaker sound system.

The Sequoia has a long list of standard safety features and driver aids. They include a surround-view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, automatic forward emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure mitigation with lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, and road sign recognition.

While we’d stick with the base model, we would spring for the SR5 Premium Package ($2,735), which includes a 14-inch touchscreen, synthetic leather upholstery, power-folding third-row seats, a hands-free liftgate, a heated leather steering wheel, and dual 120V AC power supplies. We’d also add four-wheel drive for an additional $2,575.

With these options selected, the 2024 Toyota Sequoia’s price jumps to $68,255, which includes the $1,595 destination fee. Though it’s a notable price hike from the model’s base MSRP, the features added for the price still present good value. Additionally, that is still about $600 less than buyers would pay for a standard Limited model, which is just one trim level higher. Our model has most of the same features — it only sacrifices driver’s seat memory settings, second- and third-row sunshades, 20-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel — but our version has 4WD.

Comparing other 2024 Toyota Sequoia trims

Buyers who regularly venture off the beaten path might want to consider the 2024 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro, but we’d still stick with the SR5 and opt for many of the TRD Pro/TRD Sport packages available that have much of the same all-terrain kit when paired with optional 4WD.

The Platinum and Capstone Sequoia models are also tempting for their long lists of luxe features, but the steep price hikes required for these models aren’t exactly budget-friendly.

Ultimately, the 2024 Sequoia offers plenty of value in its base SR5 trim, and the options available can help buyers tailor the standard model to fit their needs while saving on the 2024 Toyota Sequoia’s price overall.
