2001 Toyota Sequoia



True to its name, the Sequoia is a towering SUV that can seat 8 and and move them about with ease. Powered by a silky and hushed 4.7-liter, i-Force V8 making 240 horsepower and 315 foot-pounds of torque using regular unleaded fuel. This V8 has been certified as an ULEV (ultra-low-emission vehicle) and in the same breath tows up to 6,500 pounds.


I'm here not only to tell you that this beast can climb, but also to show you that this beast can climb. Last Fall the friendly folks at Toyota beckoned us up to Yosemite to preview the Sequoia, so while veteran writer Ron Moorehead manned the wheel your stalwart Editor managed to shoot this video. Check it out.


The Sequoia also sports an independent double-wishbone front suspension complemented by a five-link live rear axle. Four-wheel disc antilock brakes are standard, while Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is optional.

Mountain dwellers and mountain lovers have another excellent choice within the forest of SUVs, the mighty Sequoia.
