With plenty of user-friendly features and versatility, the Toyota Sequoia for 2017 is a good choice among traditional full-size SUVs. Although you might be better off with a large, three-row crossover if your needs are less extreme. Some of its strengths include a high towing capacity and brisk acceleration, mild exterior changes, a serene ride, massive interior with a flexible seating for up to eight people, and a superior off-road ability. Its release date, going by the latest rumors, should be expected during the 2nd Q of 2017.
Let’s imagine that you have some water skis, a spouse, a boat, and four kids as well as their cargo. What is left for the vacation now is a proper vehicle ta haul everything around. Well, with the 2017 Sequoia, this might turn out to be the best vacation ever. Despite Toyota’s inability to offer any substantive changes for a couple of years now, the vehicle has managed to offer an exemplary performance that few vehicles in its segment would dare.
It is built on the architectural underpinnings as the rugged Toyota Tundra pickup. This, for starters, means more power, acceleration, and better off-road performance. With an impressive towing capacity of 7,400 pounds, the new 2017 Toyota Sequoia is undoubtedly a pretty hulking vehicle. It isn’t just better in terms of off-roading and towing, but also offers a sturdy suspension, and an ample ground clearance that will enable you venture off the pavement comfortably.
Sadly, the Toyota Sequoia hasn’t been redesigned for years and as a result, some areas have become stale. For example, the audio controls interface isn’t driver-friendly, and offers very poor fuel economy ratings relative to other full-size SUVs. We recommend that you shop around in the segment first before making your ultimate decision about the 2017 Sequoia. Some alternatives include the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, the 2017 Toyota Highlander, and the 2017 Ford Expedition.
