When it comes to cars, there is no one-size-fits-all. Everyone has different tastes, budgets, and needs. That’s why 2023 Toyota models offer a range of options in size and price variations. Most notably, the most expensive 2023 Toyota models have made quite an impression on luxury car buyers looking for the ultimate in high-end quality and performance. Let’s take a closer look at these four luxurious-lite cars.

1. Toyota Sequoia

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia is a full-size three-row SUV sharing the same platform as the Tundra pickup. Like its predecessor, the new-generation model is the most luxurious SUV in the Toyota lineup, offering extremely capable off-road prowess and excellent on-road comfort.

Toyota has redesigned the Sequoia for 2023, giving it a more modern look, a new turbocharged V6 engine, an independent front suspension, updated driver assistance features, and increased towing capacity.

Under the hood is a standard i-Force MAX powertrain with a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6 engine paired with an electric motor to give 437 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. The Tundra’s 10-speed automatic transmission helps power the rear wheels, while optional four-wheel drive is available.

Inside, the Sequoia offers plenty of luxury amenities and features, including a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. There is more space for adults, with a seating capacity of up to eight passengers when configured with a bench seat.

According to Toyota, owning a 2023 Toyota Sequoia comes at a starting MSRP of $58,365.

2. Toyota Tundra i-FORCE MAX

The 2023 Toyota Tundra i-FORCE MAX is an upscale version of the regular Tundra pickup truck. While Toyota has been offering upmarket Tundra models for years, the company has stepped things up with the i-FORCE MAX package.

The i-FORCE MAX package gives you a range of upgrades over the regular model, including an upgraded engine, a larger touchscreen display, and additional safety features. Most notably, it comes equipped with Toyota’s i-FORCE MAX engine, a 3.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces up to 437 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of 48 hp and 104 lb-ft of torque over regular Tundra models.

When towing capacity is concerned, the 2023 Tundra i-FORCE MAX can tow up to 12,200 lbs when properly equipped. Inside, there’s plenty of room for passengers with a seating capacity of five adults and a 5.5-foot-bed, short-wheelbase, or a 6.5-foot-bed, long-wheelbase.

The 2023 Toyota Tundra i-FORCE MAX starts at $54,915.

3. Toyota Mirai

The 2023 Toyota Mirai is a mid-size luxury sedan powered by hydrogen fuel-cell technology. It’s one of only two current hydrogen-powered cars on the market (the Hyundai Nexo Fuel Cell being the other) and is one of the most advanced cars in Toyota’s lineup.

The Toyota Mirai is closely aligned with the Prius Prime in size and gets a look that’s more of Lexus than Toyota’s frugal styling. Aero-focused aesthetic details and blue accents complement its sporty silhouette to give it an elegant look.

The Mirai runs on three onboard carbon fiber-reinforced tanks that carry a combined 5.3 Kg of hydrogen fuel. A process called electrolysis via a fuel cell stack is used to convert the hydrogen gas into electricity, which in turn powers a pair of electric motors that give it 182 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque.

According to Toyota, the Mirai can achieve up to an EPA-rated range of 402 miles per hydrogen fuel refill and a top speed of 111 mph. It also earns a fuel economy rating of 76 MPGe in the city and 71 MPGe on the highway. Owning a 2023 Mirai starts at an MSRP of $49,500, but its availability is limited by state.

4. Toyota GR Supra

The 2023 Toyota GR Supra is a luxurious sports car that comes with a range of powerful engines and sleek styling. It’s the first production model to be built under the Gazoo Racing brand and is closely aligned with the BMW Z4, with which it shares its platform and powertrain.

The two-door coupe has a long hood, short rear deck, and aggressive styling, giving it an instantly recognizable look. It’s powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine that produces up to 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque or a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

The 2023 GR Supra is available with the standard eight-speed automatic transmission or the optional six-speed manual transmission. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds when configured with an eight-speed automatic. The six-speed manual manages a lower 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds.

The 2023 Toyota GR Supra starts at an MSRP of $44,040.
