Introduced to the full-size sport utility vehicle market
last year, the powerful Toyota Sequoia SUV beats some of
the toughest competition when it comes to interior space
and exterior size. Not only does its size present a factor,
it is also packed with a wide array of features that make
it a perfect choice for busy families or for work.
Toyota offers up two tough models for 2002 -
the Sequoia SR5 SUV and the Sequoia Limited SUV. The Limited
model takes all the performance, luxury, and safety features
of the SR5 and loads on more amenities.
Within the extremely spacious eight-passenger
interior of the Sequoia SR5 are standard features such as
ten cupholders, door storage pockets, grocery bag hooks,
and cargo net hooks. Luxuries are listed as power windows,
power door locks, AM/FM stereo with cassette player and
CD player with six speakers, cruise control, and automatic
climate control. The second row seats split 60/40 and fold,
recline, and tumble, while the third row seat splits 50/50
and also folds, reclines, and tumbles. A power sliding moonroof,
leather upholstery, and a premium JBL audio system are available
The Sequoia Limited highlights dual front and rear air
conditioning system, leather seating, MBL audio system with
ten speakers, HomeLink, compass, and trip computer.
Each Toyota Sequoia bears a striking and old,
yet sophisticated exterior and is equipped with dual power
outside mirrors. The Sequoia Limited model sports dual heated
power outside mirrors, roof rack, and front fog lights.
Seven body colors are available with contrasting bumpers
and overfenders in three different colors.
Under the hood of the Sequoia SUV looms a 4.7-litre
i-Force engine that rips with 240 horsepower yet maintains
an ultra-low emission vehicle rating. You may opt for either
the two-wheel drive configuration of four-wheel drive for
more challenging weather and terrain. The fuel economy rating
checks in at 14/18 mpg (city/hwy) for two-wheel drive models
and 14/17 mpg (city/hwy) for the four-wheel drive variety.
Each model is equipped with a standard four-speed automatic
transmission with overdrive. Fully boxed frame rails from
front to rear lend to a marked reduction in vibration, and
the five link coil spring rear suspension with rear stabilizer
bar contributes further to a smooth and quiet ride.
Safety and Security
The Sequoia SUV is built with traction control,
vehicle skid control, and anti-lock brakes with electronic
brake distribution. Safety standards continue inside with
head impact protections structure along the entire length
of the roof side-panel section, a passenger aid bag, driver
air bag, and side impact air bags.
There are also three-point seatbelts at all eight seating
positions, head restraints, child safety locks, and child
seat tethers and anchors. The vehicle is bolstered with
massive side impact door beams, reinforced rocker support
of all four window pillars, reinforced upper cabin frame,
and a front and rear crumple zone design.
