Toyota teased a new SUV earlier this week, but everyone figured out it was the new Sequoia.
The exact reveal time is next Tuesday, January 25th at 9:30 p.m. EST.
We’ve so far driven and reviewed the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra and generally speaking, we liked it. Styling is a matter of personal tastes but appreciating power is universal. The all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia will likely feature the same pair of powertrains as the Tundra which can only mean good things.
Or not? For the moment, only the non-hybrid 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6, which delivers 389 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, is available. Already, the new engine is creating headaches for its owners as many are experiencing issues with the turbo wastegate actuator. Some Tundras owners are faced with the issue (which includes check engine, limp mode, as well as parking support brake malfunction warning messages) with as little as 500km.
According to Toyota Headquarters forums, the job to fix the issue requires the body to be lifted from the frame. Yes, you read that right. Odd thing is that this severe teething issue reminds us of the early iForce 5.7-litre V8 engine cam tower leaking problems, among a few others.
Be that as it may, the all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia Premieres on Tuesday, January 25th at 9:30 p.m. EST.
