The Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV with seating for up to 8 passengers. The rugged and capable Sequoia has shared its heavy-duty mechanicals with the Toyota Tundra pickup truck since its introduction. For 2010, the previously standard 4.7-liter V-8 engine is replaced with an all-new, more efficient 4.6-liter V-8. Toyota also adds more standard safety equipment, and many of the SUV's trim packages are reconfigured.

  • New standard driver and passenger knee air bags
  • All-new, 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine
  • Updated 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine (now flex-fuel capable)
  • Upgraded audio system with Bluetooth, satellite radio, USB and AUX inputs on SR5 trim level
  • New daytime running lamps, fog lights, running boards, roof rack, rear spoiler and moonroof on SR5 trim level
  • New 20-inch wheels, rearview back-up camera, interior chrome trim, power rear door on Limited trim level
  • New interior chrome and wood trim, laser cruise control on Platinum trim level

The Sequoia is back for 2010, after skipping a model year, with a new and slightly more powerful V-8 engine for its base model, plus a few feature upgrades. Toyota's full-size SUV shares a platform with the Tundra model and seats 8, or 7 in the Platinum trim.

The 2010 Toyota Sequoia is available in three trim levels, all offering rear-wheel drive (2WD) or optional 4-wheel drive (4WD). Standard equipment on the base-level Sequoia SR5 trim includes 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, power driver's seat, roof rack, and an 8-speaker sound system that teams up with Bluetooth streaming audio. The Sequoia Limited trim steps up to 20-inch wheels, leather upholstery, and a 14-speaker sound system, and adds running boards. The top-line Sequoia Platinum trim addresses performance by adding rear air springs and adaptive shock absorbers, as well as a navigation system, upgraded seat, more powerized accessories, and a rear entertainment system. Some of its enhancements are available as options on the Limited trim. Maximum cargo space is 121 cubic feet. Properly equipped, the 2010 Toyota Sequoia can tow up to 9100 pounds, according to the manufacturer.

Standard on all 2010 Toyota Sequoias except the SR5 is a 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine that produces 401 lb.-ft. of torque. It teams up with a 6-speed automatic transmission. According to the EPA, it delivers 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. The Sequoia SR5's standard power plant is a 310-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine that produces 327 lb.-ft. of torque. It also works with a 6-speed automatic transmission. According to the EPA, it delivers 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway with 2WD, and 13/18 with 4WD.

Standard safety features on the 2010 Toyota Sequoia include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, front- and second-row side air bags, front knee air bags, and three-row side curtain air bags. Front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are standard on the Sequoia Platinum and Limited trims.

Starting MSRPs for the 2010 Toyota Sequoia ranged from $39,030 to $59,405.
