New generation of Sequoia SUV is not coming before 2020. Until then, we will see some refreshed and revisited models, almost certainly in two years. Some updates will likely be introduced on the 2018 Toyota Sequoia, to help keep crossover attractive and stay on leading of its segment. Though this generation of vehicle is reaching full decade, it is nevertheless competitive in the market. Other rivals are also preparing their vehicles, which means SUV fans might be thrilled in next few years, watching new models coming from Toyota, Honda, Ford… But, major changes are expected in two years, and when we are speaking about Sequoia, we has to be happy with its update in 2018.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Changes
Considering that 2018 Toyota Sequoia hasn’t been announced officially, we will have to predict what to expect from it. Would it be a refreshment, with minor changes, simply to remind the users about upcoming model, or there might be applied some technologies and styling options from upcoming generation. It is not not possible if company is taking 2018 Sequoia as some type of guinea pig for developing improved crossovers.
Massive chrome grille is a highlight of the front, so we are sure that will be carried over to next model, but styling could be refreshed. Interior could take much more changes and far more testing. New features will be undoubtedly tested, but if these are going to take location in new generation of SUV, it is unknown yet. Navigation, climate control, safety, and several more accessories are being planned for 2018 year.
2018 Toyota Sequoia Engine
The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is a major SUV. That means significant engine has to be installed under its hood. Since of that 5.7-l V8 unit is revisited to provide power once again to the crossover. With slight modifications, unit will likely be in a position to make nearly 400 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Towing is superb for this type of vehicle. We anticipate improvement from current 7,600 pounds rating. On the other side, fuel economy is not a detail exactly where Toyota Sequoia really should seek buyers’ happiness. With just 15 mpg combined rate, it is major con comparing to rivals. Nonetheless, there is still plenty of time to fix it and increase mpg rate.
