Model Highlights

The 2011 Toyota Sequoia model line consists of SR5, Limited and Platinum models. SR5 grades of the Sequoia come with a 310-horsepower, 4.6L V8, while Limited and Platinum models get a 381-hp, 5.7L 'i-Force' V8. Both engines deliver their power through a 6-speed automatic transmission.

2011's rear-wheel drive Sequoia fuel economy ratings now stand at 14 mpg city, 20 mpg highway. The 5.7L and 4-wheel drive version gets 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway.

The optional 4-wheel drive system in the Sequoia includes a 2-speed transfer case with a true low range good for off-roading or other heavy-duty tasks, while a Torsen limited-slip differential helps distribute power in a steady fashion. Switching between the system's modes involves turning a simple dash-mounted knob.

Thanks to a 4-wheel independent suspension, along with tubular anti-roll bars, the Sequoia rides and handles better than other tough, load-bearing trucks. An optional air suspension further improves comfort and includes larger 20-inch wheels and tires. Stopping power is good even when loaded thanks to big 4-piston anti-lock ventilated disc brakes with brake assist. Electronic stability control helps maintain safety for abrupt maneuvers or slippery surfaces.

As a sign that the Sequoia is intended for frequent, demanding towing tasks, the tow hitch is integrated into the frame. Ratings range up to 10,000 pounds, and the transmission includes a tow/haul mode that brings more engine braking.

Eight-passenger seating is standard on the Sequoia in three rows, but an arrangement with second-row captain's chairs is optional, for a capacity of seven. The second row slides fore and aft to optimize comfort between rows and aid access, and in models with the bench seat, it's split 40/20/40 for the best combination of people and cargo. The third row is split 60/40 and can recline or fold flat. Behind the third row there's a rear power window, and a power tailgate is available. Throughout the interior there are various cup and bottle holders, along with cubbies large and small.

Additional safety features on the Sequoia include roll-sensing side-curtain airbags, front-seat side bags and now knee bags for front occupants.

Although the Sequoia is a Toyota, it comes almost as well equipped as a Lexus. The long standard-equipment list, even on the base SR5, includes a 3-zone climate control system, keyless entry, cruise control and an 8-speaker CD sound system with Bluetooth, satellite radio and MP3 compatibility. The Limited adds parking sensors, fog lamps, heated leather power-adjustable seats, a roof rack, a JBL sound system and other upgrades. At the top of the range, the Platinum adds 20-inch diamond cut-finish alloys, the load-leveling air suspension, memory seats, second-row heated seats, a sunroof and a Lexus navigation system with rear camera. Laser cruise control and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system are also now included.

Major options are limited, though a dealer-installed option list is very extensive and includes exterior trim and performance parts.


Model News

The Sequoia doesn't change much for 2011. The standard stereo now has Bluetooth streaming audio. Slate Metallic paint is no longer available, neither is Spruce Mica or Nautical Blue. The SR5 gets a Premium Package that includes heated leather seats with power adjustment and a reverse monitor.


Value Writeup

The Toyota Sequoia appeals to those who need serious truck ability for towing large trailers or carrying people off-road. The Sequoia delivers just as much capability with almost as much style and luxury features as high-end luxury-brand SUVs. The interior is spacious and comfortable, and surprisingly flexible for people and cargo. Base SR5 models are an especially strong value, while fully loaded Platinum models sticker for less than $60k.

Summary
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008 THROUGH 2011 FJ CRUISER, LAND CRUISER, TACOMA, SEQUOIA AND TUNDRA VEHICLES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 138, "TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)." THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEMS WERE NOT RE-CALIBRATED CORRECTLY AND THEREFORE DO NOT START ILLUMINATING THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING TELLTALE AT THE REQUIRED MINIMUM ACTIVATION PRESSURE

Consequence
FAILURE TO WARN OF TIRE DEFLATIONS IS A NON-COMPLIANCE WITH FMVSS 138 AND COULD LEAD TO TIRE FAILURE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL RE-INITIALIZE THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Toyota Motor Company (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Tundra, Sequoia, Corolla, Corolla Matrix and Scion xB, 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2007 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2006-2011 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris, and 2009-2010 Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. During the manufacturing of the Power Window Master Switch (PWMS), grease lubricant may have been inconsistently applied to the sliding electrical contacts.

Consequence
If the sliding electrical contacts are not protected by lubricant, debris and moisture that get into the switch may cause a short circuit and the switch assembly may overheat and melt, increasing the risk of a fire.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. If abnormality is found, the PWMS circuit board will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is C0M.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
