The redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia is set for a reveal this evening, introducing an updated rival for the Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, and GMC Yukon. Now, however, a few images of the new Sequoia were just leaked ahead of the SUV’s official debut.
Two images of the redesigned 2023 Toyota Sequoia were revealed, including an image of what is believed to be the new Capstone trim level in red. The Capstone is a luxurious range-topping variant that was also recently announced for the Toyota Tundra. The second image shows the off-road-ready 2023 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro, finished in white. Like TRD models in the past, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro is expected to include upgrades like off-road suspension, unique wheels, and other off-roading cues.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia will introduce the nameplate’s first new generation since the second-gen model arrived for the 2008 model year. As before, the new third-generation 2023 Toyota Sequoia will be related to the Toyota Tundra pickup truck, utilizing the same TNGA-F body-on-frame platform. The Sequoia will also incorporate an independent rear suspension setup, similar to rival full-size SUVs from General Motors.
As for the powertrain spec, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia will offer the same greasy bits as the 2022 Toyota Tundra. This should include the Tundra’s i-FORCE twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 gasoline engine, rated at 389 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 479 pound-feet of torque at 2,400 rpm, as well as the Tundra’s i-FORCE MAX twin-turbocharged hybrid 3.5L V6 gasoline engine, rated at 437 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 583 pound-feet of torque at 2,400 rpm.
The hybrid powertrain incorporates a parallel electric motor/generator located between the engine and transmission, as well as a nickel-metal hydride battery, the combination of which produces a maximum of 48 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
Both engines connect to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
