Car Review: 2018 #Toyota #Sequoia 4×4 TRD Sport

Base Price – $54,240

Total Price – $59,873 (Upgrades & Destination Charge)

17 MPG (13 city/17 highway) – You'll need to save up for road trip gas money!

This SUV is definitely a hauling machine with its 5.7-liter V-8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque, along with a six-speed automatic.


Standard Features:

  • Toyota Safety Sense with extensive collisions sensors
  • Power liftgate
  • 60/40 split rear seats
  • Fold flat 3rd row
  • Entune Audio System with 6.1″ screen (this model at the upgrade screen) – seems meager for how big this vehicle is
  • Seating is tall and wide, and everyone, including adults riding in the third-row seat, is going to be comfortable.

Upgrades:

Very few upgrades but still a lush ride
  • $3,810 – TRD Sport Package Package – It adds black leather with contrast stitching, which helps to add visual and tactile quality to a cabin sorely needing it. It also upgrades the infotainment system with navigation and Toyota’s Entune AppSuite, which is the automaker’s substitution for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, neither of which are available.
  • $299 – Glass Breakage Sensor – highly sensitive microphone detects the sound frequency of glass breakage or an object striking the glass. When something hits the window, a warn-away alarm sounds, but once the glass actually breaks, the alarm is instantly activated.

Google Search yielded some very opinionated opinions on this SUV, specifically about the fuel efficiency & the design

Based on the Toyota Tundra pickup truck, the Sequoia TRD Sport 4WD weighs almost three tons. That’s why it requires a thirsty 5.7-liter V8 engine making 381 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 401 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm.

Overall opinion  – it's super fun for road trips, feels very roomy and lush for passengers (my Queenies LOVED it – most of them have children and thought their kids would love the roomy 2nd & 3rd row. Gas mileage & archaic technology could make you chafe a bit/

Great for Friends & Family:

I had quite the mixed bag of passengers including my Queenies, my 5'2 cousin Julia and her 6'7″ hubby Ben (he fit just fine!) and my local DJ friend, Shannon!



Zombie Apocalyse Rating: B/C

This vehicle would be GREAT as a bug-out vehicle – you can pack a TON of people and supplies in it – just make sure you track how many miles away your meet up or final destination is located. You want to get there safely and then only use it once your refueling options are secured. You thought I was kidding about this Z.A. rating thing, didn't you? Nope, my thought process for ZA safety is for realsies.
