2023 Toyota Sequoia, TRD Pro Priced — Prepare to Pay a Pretty Penny
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia is going to remain atop the brand’s SUV ladder, with a planned sticker price based at $58,300.
The TRD Pro version, which is top-of-the-line and off-road-oriented, will start at $76,900.
Should you opt for a TRD Pro, you’ll get 33-inch Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires, 18-inch BBS wheels, skid plate, dual exhaust, locking rear differential, Fox shocks, a LED light bar, and LED marker lights.
In between these trims are the base SR5 (includes LED lights, flip-up rear window, 18-inch wheels, privacy glass, black grille with chrome surround, heated front seats, 12.3-inch instrument screen, power moonroof, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), the $64,700 Limited (20-inch wheels, chrome accents, gray grille, cooled seats, heated steering wheel, power third row), the $70,900 Platinum (premium LED lighting all around, 20-inch wheels, chrome mesh grille, panoramic glass, digital rearview mirror, and premium audio), and the luxury-oriented Capstone trim, which includes 22-inch wheels and costs $75,300 to start.
TRD Sport and Off-Road packages will be available, depending on trim. The TRD Sport package will be available on the SR5 and add Bilstein shocks and 20-inch wheels, while the TRD Off-Road package will be available on four-wheel-drive SR5s and Limiteds and it will add a skid plate, off-road Bilstein shocks, and a locking rear differential.
Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.5 suite of advanced driver-assistance systems is standard. It includes radar cruise control, lane-departure alert w/steering assist, and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. Other driver aids include automatic high beeams, road-sign assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The sole powertrain choice is a hybrid system that pairs a twin-turbo, 3.5-liter V6 engine and an electric motor with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard on all but TRD Pros, which come with four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is a $3,000 option otherwise, and the destination fee is $1,495.
The 2023 Toyota Sequoia hits stores this summer.

- Sgeffe Bronco looks with JLR “reliability!”What’s not to like?!
- FreedMike Back in the '70s, the one thing keeping consumers from buying more Datsuns was styling - these guys were bringing over some of the ugliest product imaginable. Remember the F10? As hard as I try to blot that rolling aberration from my memory, it comes back. So the name change to Nissan made sense, and happened right as they started bringing over good-looking product (like the Maxima that will be featured in this series). They made a pretty clean break.
- Flowerplough Liability - Autonomous vehicles must be programmed to make life-ending decisions, and who wants to risk that? Hit the moose or dive into the steep grassy ditch? Ram the sudden pile up that is occurring mere feet in front of the bumper or scan the oncoming lane and swing left? Ram the rogue machine that suddenly swung into my lane, head on, or hop up onto the sidewalk and maybe bump a pedestrian? With no driver involved, Ford/Volkswagen or GM or whomever will bear full responsibility and, in America, be ambulance-chaser sued into bankruptcy and extinction in well under a decade. Or maybe the yuge corporations will get special, good-faith, immunity laws, nation-wide? Yeah, that's the ticket.
- FreedMike It's not that consumers wouldn't want this tech in theory - I think they would. Honestly, the idea of a car that can take over the truly tedious driving stuff that drives me bonkers - like sitting in traffic - appeals to me. But there's no way I'd put my property and my life in the hands of tech that's clearly not ready for prime time, and neither would the majority of other drivers. If they want this tech to sell, they need to get it right.
- TitaniumZ Of course they are starting to "sour" on the idea. That's what happens when cars start to drive better than people. Humanpilots mostly suck and make bad decisions.
