The Japanese automaker has introduced an all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia three-row SUV.

The 2023 Toyota Sequoia made its official debut yesterday.

The powerful hybrid i-FORCE MAX powertrain with a unique motor-generator and a twin-turbo V6 produces 437 hp and 583 pound-feet of torque. It pairs Toyota’s 10-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is expected to be extremely competitive.

The new SUV’s maximum towing capacity reaches 9,000 pounds: 22 percent more than before. The carmaker offers the Tow Tech Package for all trim levels, including such features as Trailer Backup Guide and Straight Path Assist.

The vehicle adopts a new rack-mounted electronic power steering system to improve the steering feel. Load-Leveling Rear Height Control Air Suspension and Adaptive are available. Also, the Drive Mode Select is an all-new feature on the Sequoia.
