The Sequoia gains a redesigned infotainment system for 2020 complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a long overdue addition. Additionally, a new TRD Pro model joins the lineup and offers unique suspension and aesthetic components, just like the other TRD Pro models in the Toyota lineup.

With its full complement of accident-avoidance tech and standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, even the base Sequoia SR5 represents a compelling choice. However, we would expect most buyers will be craving more luxury features like leather upholstery and the various power-operated functions that are found on the Limited trim. The new-for-2020 TRD Pro model stands out simply for the fact that it offers more off-road capability than any of its competitors like the Expedition and the Tahoe, not to mention the fact that it looks the part too. Beyond this halo model though, the Sequoia gets by primarily on its reputation for reliability and dependability, which in its defense is tough to argue with. Still, it's probably only marginally more reliable than competing full-size SUVs, all of which have benefited from at least one full redesign since the last time Toyota rolled out a new Sequoia back in 2008, and each one offers more in the way of efficiency, ergonomics and overall modernity.

The 2020 Toyota Sequoia is available in SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, TRD Pro and Platinum trims.
Standard SR5 ($51,230) features include 18-in alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, fog lamps, running boards, a power rear window, a roof rack, a sunroof, a backup camera, forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems, adaptive cruise control, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 8-passenger seating, a sliding and reclining second-row seat, a reclining third-row seat, rear side sunshades, and the aforementioned 7-in infotainment screen complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The TRD Sport ($53,945) adds different styling cues, 20-in black wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, TRD anti-sway bars for better on-road handling, leather upholstery and standard second-row captain's chairs (reduces seating to seven, available on other trims).
The Limited ($60,240) adds different 20-in wheels, a power lift gate, power-folding mirrors, parking sensors, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, a power-folding third-row seat and unique instrumentation. Some of the interior niceties are optional on the SR5.
The Sequoia TRD Pro ($65,355) is all-new for 2020 and offers much of the off-road capability found on Toyota's other TRD Pro models. Fox shock absorbers with piggy-back reservoirs, a front skid plate, Rigid Industries LED fog lights, a platform-style roof rack, and a TRD cat back exhaust round out the functional bits, while a "TOYOTA" word mark grille, black 18-in BBS wheels, and an exclusive "Army Green" exterior color make up the aesthetic touches.
The Platinum ($67,270) features an adaptive and load-leveling air suspension, second-row captain's chairs, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, a 14-speaker JBL sound system, integrated navigation and a rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system with a 9-in display. These latter three tech items are optional on the Limited.

2019 Ford Expedition -- The Expedition was fully redesigned last year and is arguably the leader in this segment. It offers almost the same interior volume as the Sequoia, but with a vastly more efficient powertrain and a more modern interior. It's also available in an extended-wheelbase EL model.
2019 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe -- The smaller Tahoe's compromised third-row seat make the bigger Suburban the GM full-sizer to consider (although both share a sky-high loading height and uncouth ride). Its higher-quality cabin and efficient V8 engine earn merit.
2019 Dodge Durango -- The Durango isn't as large as the others, and it's built on a stretched version of the platform underpinning the Jeep Grand Cherokee rather than a converted pickup truck. It does feature a refined RWD platform, three usable rows of seating and an optional 5.7-liter V8 that allows for stronger towing capacity than the typical crossover. The Sequoia offers better reliability and build quality though.
Used Toyota Sequoia -- The Sequoia has changed so little in the past decade and Toyotas are so reliable, why not consider a used or certified pre-owned example at a nice discount?
