Reportedly, the next generation 2022 Toyota Sequoia will arrive next year, and it should introduce a couple of upgrades. Recently, some of the first rendering images emerged, and we must admit, it looks attractive and fresh.
If you didn’t know, since 2000, this SUV has evolved into the best option, if you’re seeking a large family vehicle with three rows of seats. For 2022, buyers can expect a couple of important updates that will mostly happen outside, with slightly more comfort inside.
2022 Toyota Sequoia Facelift
The 2022 Toyota Sequoia is an attractive SUV that will look bolder and more modern. This model seems refreshed at first glance, but it won’t change drastically compared to the current model. Instead, it should get mid-cycle refreshments. As before, the design is the same, and the rigid body-on-frame structure remains. Generally, that means Sequoia will be dimensionally unchanged.
However, the new Sequoia SUV will receive some small refreshments includes a more attractive grille design with more chrome accents. New LED headlights are present, while the side profile features sharper lines. Interestingly, on the back, the rendered Sequoia features better taillight graphics and the same shape as its predecessor. Overall, as you can see, the same unique appearance remains.
The interior is the most challenging part for the manufacturer. However, you cannot go wrong with the 2022 Toyota Sequoia. First of all, it offers a very spacious three-row cabin, with enough room for seven persons. Like before, there are five different trims, including SR5, TRD Sport, Limited, TRD Pro, and Platinum variants. The entry-level trim SR5 also offers amazing interior design.
This model includes a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, and tri-zone climate control. However, more features are available on the upper trims, such as a moonroof, leather upholstery, and a larger display.
The new 2022 Toyota Sequoia will most likely only receive exterior and interior updates. That means this large SUV might offer the same potent engine as the current one. A 5.7-liter V8 gasoline unit powers the present Sequoia, and it generates up to 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to this powerful engine, Sequoia can tow up to 7,400 pounds. Generally, it’s still far away from the leader Ford Expedition and its 9300 pounds of towing capacity. Interestingly, we heard plenty of rumors that the next Sequoia could get a new transmission that will replace an aging six-speed automatic gearbox. Basically, we know surely that all trims continuous to be offer standard RWD, except the TRD Pro trim, which provides a standard 4WD system.

The forthcoming 2022 Toyota Sequoia will look more attractive than before. From the newest report, the Sequoia will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2021. However, as for the price, the latest mid-cycle updates will slightly increase this SUV cost.
As so, we can expect it to starts at around $51,000. If you want something different, the TRD Pro trim is an excellent option that offers many amenities, but you must pay at least $64,000 for it. Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Ford Expedition, and Nissan Armada are the closest rivals of the Sequoia.
