5 reasons to buy the 2018 Toyota Sequoia

1. Tons of cargo room

The great American road trip is even better with a great amount of space in your ride to go with it. The 2018 Sequoia delivers 18.9 cu-ft of space behind the third row. That makes the Sequoia pretty practical, even with up to eight passengers on board. That increases to a maximum of 120 cu-ft of cargo capacity with the seats folded. So, whether you are taking that epic road trip with the family or loading up at the home improvement store to kick off a new project, the 2018 Sequoia has you covered. 

2. Super versatile

All that cargo space is great, but what if you are off on a ski or surfing trip with a couple of friends? In addition to the power-folding third row, the second-row adjustments add the flexibility to bring along longer items and passengers. There are also several available storage compartments including a dual-level glove compartment and a hidden storage compartment under the rear floor! 

3. Rugged good looks

Life is too short to blend into the background. The 2018 Sequoia stands out in the crowd with rugged styling that is backed up by impressive engineering. You'll find that the Sequoia was designed to look at home both at the valet stand or out on the trail with a mix of available black or chrome accents. All 2018 models feature standard LED headlights and fog lights to help guide the way and add even more cool to the Sequoia. 

4. Off-road capability

Those rugged good looks aren't just skin deep. Toyota's great Multi-Mode 4WD is optional on all trim levels, and standard on the TRD Sport trim level. With at least 10-inches of ground clearance across the range, you can take your 2018 Sequoia to places you could only previously imagine. Opt for the TRD Sport and you can take things to the next level with unique suspension components including TRD front and rear sway bars and Bilstein® dampers. The 2018 Sequoia is definitely at home on and off the pavement.

5. Luxury and tech

The 2018 Sequoia looks like an off-roader and moves like one, but there's more to it. With a host of available luxury and tech-focused features, you'll be able to focus on comfort on that next road trip. The Platinum trim has adaptive air suspension for smooth cruising while you sink into the optional leather seating. Plus, with a touchscreen up front, you can control the optional single-screen rear DVD entertainment system to keep the kids occupied for hours.
