The 2014 Toyota Sequoia SR5 sports a massive interior with flexible seating for up to eight, a serene ride, brisk acceleration and high towing capacity.
This Sequoia comes standard with a 5.7-liter V8 engine rated at 381 hp and 401 pound-feet of torque. The V8 is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive is standard. This is an uncommonly smooth engine that delivers robust acceleration in weekday driving and still has the brawn to tow trailers up to 7,400 pounds on the weekend.
Inside you'll find a spacious and comfortable cabin with room for as many as eight passengers. The quality of both the materials and construction is above average, creating a pleasant environment that belies the Sequoia's rugged truck-based origins. Gauges and controls are generally well placed and easy to use.
This SR5 model comes with a long list of standard features, including 18-inch alloy wheels, foglights, heated mirrors, keyless entry, a roof rack, running boards, rear privacy glass, a power-down rear window, rear view camera, and towing preparation.
That list continues inside with tri-zone automatic climate control, power front seats (eight-way driver, four-way passenger), a 40/20/40-split second-row bench seat (with sliding and reclining functionality), a 60/40-split reclining and fold-flat third-row bench, cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and an eight-speaker audio system with a CD player, satellite radio, HD radio, an auxiliary audio input and a USB/iPod interface.
Safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, trailer sway control, front knee airbags, front-seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags.
