2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum: Pros and Cons

2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum hero

After testing out the most extreme Sequoia model off-road I was itching to test out a more luxurious offering on the road. I had the keys to a 2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum in my possession for a week which gave me the opportunity to see just what Toyota’s biggest SUV is like. Here are the PROs and CONs of the 2022 Toyota Sequoia Platinum.

PRO: Exterior Looks

Loving the look of the last generation Sequoia was an acquired taste. Where that truck was bubbly, this new gen has much sharper lines.

PRO: Upgraded Tech

The interior gets a 14-inch, yes 14-inch compared to most of the world living in the 12.3-inch range, screen. Alongside that huge scene is a fully digital gauge cluster giving you the option to cycle through loads of data screens while presenting the i-Force (boost gauge) and MAX (battery gauge) on full display.

PRO: Drive Modes

Sure it has 4×4 modes, but sometimes you want something a bit more detailed. The 2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum has a drive mode switch allowing you to switch between Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, Sport+, and Custom modes.

PRO: Miles Per Gallon

Not only is the 2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum’s twin-turbo 3.4-liter V-6 engine and electric motor combo capable of 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque, but it also achieves 19 city, 22 highway, and 20 combined miles per gallon.

CON: No V8 Under the Hood

It has the power, but there are those who will be V8 holdouts. Those who need a V8 in their lives and while other manufacturers still have V8s in some of their more extreme offerings the V8 is gone in both the Sequoia and Tundra of new.
