Toyota Sequoia 2021.

The 2021 Toyota Sequoia is considered one of the «old-timers» of the modern market. The car, both externally and internally, has remained virtually unchanged for over ten years.

However, the Japanese SUV outperforms its direct competitors Chevrolet Tahoe and Nissan Patrol (Armada) in a number of ways, both of which have recently been deeply redesigned.

Sequoia, estimated at a minimum of 3.73 million rubles, is equipped with only one naturally-aspirated 5.7-liter engine, combined with all-wheel drive and automatic transmission.

The Japanese model is available in 7- and 8-seater versions and offers a multimedia complex, a touchscreen monitor and a proprietary security complex in the «base».

Optional ventilated front seats, leather seats and other options are available for the SUV.

The focus of the latest modernization has been on the SUV trim levels, which have been increased in number.

Handling and off-road performance

The Sequoia is a very large vehicle, which makes it extremely sluggish in urban use.

However, the owners of the Japanese model note the high-quality steering gear settings, which ensure comfortable control of such a large SUV.

Also, the advantages of the Japanese model include the suspension, which neutralizes most of the road bumps.

The Sequoia is at its best after driving off the tarmac.

The integrated all-wheel drive in combination with on-board electronics contributes to free movement even in difficult off-road conditions.

The car successfully overcomes deep fords thanks to its 224 mm ground clearance.

When the wheels slip, the traction control system is activated. Also included with the SUV is equipment that prevents the body from skidding.

It should be noted that the Sequoia looks worse off-road than the Land Cruiser 200.

The latter has more differentials and electronics, making it easier to drive in difficult conditions.

Service costs

Sequoia is one of the ten most reliable cars in the world. According to research, an SUV will serve its owner for more than 15 years.

In many respects, such characteristics are provided by an extremely reliable engine that does not require repair for 500 thousand kilometers.

A little earlier you will have to restore the automatic transmission. However, even these works, due to the relatively simple design of the gearbox, will cost a small amount.

Even for the replacement of the checkpoint, you will have to pay about 50 thousand rubles. Suspension and all-wheel drive transmission are considered to be no less hardy.

In fact, these components only require regular maintenance. On average, its owners spend 150 thousand rubles annually on the operation of a Japanese model.
