The news about 2018 Toyota Sequoia redesign is just adding up the competitive flair and atmosphere in the auto world. It seems that the full size SUV platform will be quite busy with some of the best names in the industry are getting started with their production. Toyota is definitely going with Sequoia and also Tundra, while Nissan will be busy with Armada and GM will be coming with at least two new productions. Right now, both Tundra and Sequoia have entered the production stage and testing period so we should be able to wait for updates.
Rumor has it that the 2018 Toyota Sequoia redesign will take a completely new form and design – you can say that the new Sequoia will be coming completely new. It will share the similar chassis with Tundra, which means that the combination of aluminum and high quality steel should be expected. Because of the aluminum parts, there will be a significant weight loss for the Sequoia so it weighs less than 5000 pounds – it experiences around 700 pounds shed. The lighter construction is designed to improved fuel consumption and also performance, which leads to a better comfort.
Price and Release Date
It is still unknown when Toyota is going to make this new Sequoia available on the dealerships. However, rumor has it that this model will be introduced to the public around the second quarter of 2018 and production stage follows not long after it. The price is still unknown and it is also likely that it may be different from the last production, considering that this 2018 Toyota Sequoia redesign will change the overall platform and construction.
It is likely that the new Sequoia will get a new front look with car-like feel instead of truck-like feel. It is highly possible that Sequoia will get the same treatment as the Highlander without changing the overall dimension and size. For the cabin, an improved flair and atmosphere are definitely expected, with updated look, trims, options, and also technologies. With higher materials and new features, hopefully, Sequoia won’t be as dull as before.
For the engine, the V8 engine with 5.7 liter capacity is likely gone, replaced with new petrol and also diesel engine but it is unknown whether Toyota will be doing so. They are said to work on V7 turbocharged 3.0 liter engine that is expected to produce 400 hp of power. What do you think about this 2018 Toyota Sequoia redesign?
