The Biggest Change On The 2023 Sequoia That Some Toyota Fans Aren’t Happy About – SlashGear


Toyota’s fix here is a judicious squirt of electrification. No, nobody is going to confuse the Sequoia for a Prius, but the same strategy of pairing gas and electric power to get some of the best of both worlds is present in this three-row SUV. A big vehicle gets a big engine name: the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 hybrid i-FORCE MAX.

Admittedly, the gas part of this electrified party is still a sizable thing: a 3.5-liter V6 onto which Toyota bolts not one, but two turbochargers. In between that and the 10-speed automatic transmission, however, is an electric motor. Combined, the two sources muster a whopping 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft of torque.

That’s a lot, but equally important is how rapidly all that torque arrives: at just 2,400 rpm. Contrast that with the old Sequoia and its V8, and you see the improvement easily. The model year 2022 SUV managed 401 lb-ft — considerably less than this hybrid V6 packs — and it arrived later, at 3,600 rpm.
