5 reasons to buy the 2022 Toyota Sequoia

1. Roomy interior

Given the fact that it's a full-size, three-row SUV, it should come as no surprise that one of the greatest things about the 2022 Toyota Sequoia is its large, roomy interior. It can seat up to eight, so it's perfect for large families or anyone who needs a larger vehicle to carpool with friends or colleagues. It's also convenient for families with small children, as it has room for more than one child seat, while still offering seating for a few more passengers.

2. Large cargo area

In addition to the spacious interior and the high seating capacity, the 2022 Toyota Sequoia comes with a sizeable cargo area, as well. Behind the third-row seats, it has a cargo capacity of 18.9 cu-ft, which increases to 66.6 cu-ft if you fold those seats flat. You can also fold down the second-row seats for a maximum cargo volume of 120.1 cu-ft.

3. Powerful engine

The 2022 Toyota Sequoia is only offered with one engine, but it's a strong one. This full-size SUV is powered by a 5.7L V8 that generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, with rear-wheel drive as standard, while all-wheel drive is available. The Sequoia is quite nimble and is easy to maneuver on crowded city streets. Shifting between gears is smooth, steering is responsive, and with a 7.15-second zero-to-60 acceleration time, you can confidently merge onto the highway or pass other vehicles.

4. Driver-assistance technology

As far as driver assistance is concerned, the 2022 Toyota Sequoia comes standard with plenty of features that are designed to help you avoid unwanted situations on the road. For instance, it's equipped with a forward-collision warning and an automated emergency braking system, which warns you of an imminent collision and automatically applies the brakes if necessary. It also comes with dynamic radar cruise control, which maintains distance behind the car in front of you, as well as a lane departure warning system and a lane-keeping system.

5. Convenience and infotainment features

The 2022 Toyota Sequoia is equipped with a host of features that are aimed at enhancing the overall riding experience for all passengers. To begin with, it comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility. Furthermore, it has three-zone automatic climate control and a power-adjustable driver's seat, along with an eight-speaker audio system. Voice recognition, HD radio, and three USB ports are also standard.
