2001 toyota Sequoia

2001 toyota sequoia: To give you a suggestion of the amount of room the new Toyota Sequoia takes up, it's really larger than a Chevrolet Tahoe as well as concerning equal in size to a Ford Exploration. That's a big dog. Not quite Ford Expedition or Hummer proportions, but still a near-monster vehicle.

Nevertheless, the Sequoia is additionally very civilized, quiet, comfortable, and, in the Minimal version we drove, extremely luxurious. Over and over we needed to advise ourselves that we just weren't driving a Lexus, as our examination version was stuffed with luxurious leather seats, automated environment control, as well as a killer JBL stereo that had an in-dash 6-CD changer.

Maybe the most effective function of the Sequoia is its capability to work as an amazing family automobile. With standard eight-passenger seats in three rows of seats, the Sequoia can carry a boatload of kids (with or without the big pets in tow).

The Sequoia is bigger in almost every exterior and interior dimension compared to the Toyota Land Cruiser; however, the top-of-the-line Sequoia Limited is greater than $10,000 more economical.

SCHEDULE

The Sequoia is provided in SR5 and Limited trim lines.

The SR5 comes standard with power home windows, mirrors as well as door locks, cruise ship control, automated climate control, and also an AM/FM stereo with both cassette and CD players. The Minimal variation adds leather upholstery, front as well as rear a/c, heated up outside mirrors, JBL stereo, roof shelf, as well as alloy wheels.

Both trim lines come typical with skid control to assist handling as well as grip control to help in unsafe driving conditions.

The basic engine is a 240-horsepower 4.7-liter V8, which is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Both back- and also four-wheel drive designs are used.

DRIVING PERCEPTION

Piloting the Sequoia on the open road is a pleasure. We loved the smooth and effective V8 engine. It's a wonder of a power plant, and this truck needs all its 240 horsepower. The transmission, as well, was seamless in operation. With such a lengthy wheelbase and overall heft, the Sequoia provides a comfy flight on all types of road problems. While our Limited model was almost as extravagant as a Lexus, it wasn't almost as quiet. Wind sound at freeway speeds wasn't noticeable, however the cabin had not been as hushed as Lexus LS 430 sedan we recently drove.

But all this deluxe and also convenience come with a rate: The Sequoia is an absolute pig at the gas pump. EPA claims to anticipate just 14 mpg in city driving and also a paltry 17 mpg on the freeway.

Braking, while never nerve rattling, takes a little obtaining used to. Stopping a lorry the dimension of a Sequoia takes preparing ahead, as well as you shouldn't wait up until the eleventh hour to apply stress to the pedal. Technically, the brakes work great (and also ABDOMINAL MUSCLE is typical); just don't forget that you're not driving a lithe sports car.

The Sequoia is not, however, a pleasure to obtain in and out of. Although the Limited design comes with side running boards (optional on the SR5) and grab deals with placed inside of the doorframes, you need to be prepared to lift yourself up and also into this vehicle. In contrast, a regular auto enables you to essentially go down right into the seat. A large beast like the Sequoia requires some physical dexterity as well as for its residents to be unafraid of elevations: A commanding sight of the passing surroundings is ensured from every seat.

As you 'd visualize from an automobile of this size, the Sequoia is not a simple barge to park. Parallel parking this hulk in downtown Austin, Texas, showed to be a humbling experience.

The Sequoia is a champ if you have to transfer great deals of youngsters from side to side on a regular basis. We state 'kids' because they're the just one with the dexterity to hop over the middle-row to get to the three-person back seats. Asking full-sized grownups to creep back there will likely cost you a few friends.

There are two controls to trigger the optional four-wheel drive system. The first is a straightforward button, situated fairly low in the center of the control panel. Punching it will certainly place the vehicle in four-wheel high, which is good for driving on snowy or slippery roadways. Engaging this additional traction can be done on the fly without needing to quit the car. You'll also locate a traditional-looking change lever located in between the pole positions to activate four-wheel reduced; also known as the creeper equipment, this is only for even more severe off-road usage, such as descending an extremely steep hillside.

Speaking of high hillsides, the Sequoia's active traction control, called A-TRAC, which comes requirement on four-wheel-drive models, made it simple for us to drive directly a set of moguls on a dry, gravel-covered ski slope at Big Sky, Montana. Instead of modulating the throttle, we merely held the gas down, and also it strolled right up capital, moving torque to the tires with the best hold. Drop it into the low array, as well as the system instantly secures the facility differential for go-anywhere grip capability. Two-wheel-drive Sequoias additionally come basic with traction control, though, certainly, they won't supply the mogul-climbing capacities of the four-wheel-drive designs.

The skid-control attribute, which comes criterion, helps the Sequoia keep security ought to the automobile shed traction as well as start to slid sidewards. Like various other electronic security programs, it uniquely uses braking pressure to individual wheels to quit a skid, and it could actually aid you avoid a mishap.

A two-wheel-drive Sequoia is rated to tow as much as a 6500-pound trailer, while a 4x4 is rated to pull a 6200-pound trailer.
