The second generation of the Toyota Sequoia is already 10 years old. Fans hope for the new one, but it seems like it is not going to happen before 2020. Instead, the 2019 Toyota Sequoia will suffer redesign, only a year after the big refresh. It was just a prelude for bigger changes coming for exterior and interior.
Spy shots are confirming that the company works on 2019 Toyota Sequoia. Platinum and the Limited edition will bring the most exciting interior. On the performance end, we will have TRD packages for the better off-road impression. Also, the 2019 Sequoia could introduce a new diesel engine. All in all, the full-size SUV is worth waiting.
2019 Toyota Sequoia Spy Photos and Changes
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia was spied last year, but then we had no clear info about its release. Now, when we know that the company is working on the redesign, we can get some clues from new spy photos. The SUV keeps the body-on-frame concept. Independent suspension and full-time AWD will boost off-road performance.
Current crossover is offering a TRD Sport package improves on-road drive. Among many features, this set of features brings unique wheels and colors. Not only that body is getting a refresh, but also parts such as grille and bumpers. Interior is also getting a specific package of equipment.
On the other hand, the 2019 Toyota Sequoia could get a TRD Pro version. This is a more off-road oriented package. We can find it on trucks and 4Runner SUV. These vehicles are the most capable off-road units in the Toyota family.
2019 Toyota Sequoia Platinum and Limited Trims are Better than Before
The base trim level for the 2019 Toyota Sequoia will be again the SR5. We already mentioned the TRD Sport as a part of the lineup. Nevertheless, buyers have the most inquires about the Limited and Platinum model. While we still can compare the first one with SR5 and TRD, the 2019 Toyota Sequoia Platinum version is far away from its siblings. Well, it costs $10,000 more than the next most expensive trim. A lot of premium details we will find all over the SUV.
