What is the Toyota Sequoia?

The Sequoia, which is primarily aimed at North American and Middle Eastern left-hand drive markets, has replaced the Land Cruiser 200 as Toyota’s premier SUV in the United States, as the firm has no intentions to introduce the Land Cruiser 300 there.

The new Sequoia shares certain components with the Toyota Tundra pickup truck, as well as the new Land Cruiser 300 and the Lexus LX600 luxury SUV. The Sequoia has independent front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension system. Optional features include adaptive dampers and a load-leveling air system for the back.
