The first generation Toyota Sequoia was sold from 2001 through 2007. It came with a 4.7 liter V8 engine that makes 240 horsepower. Starting in 2005, a stronger V8 with VVT-i was made an option. It produces 273 horsepower. The two trims on the Sequoia are the SR5 and the Limited. They retailed for about $32,000 and $42,000, respectively. Rear wheel drive is standard, but four wheel drive is a popular option.
The 2nd generation Toyota Sequoia was first sold for the 2008 model year. It comes with a choice of V8 engines, a 4.7 liter or a 5.7 liter. The newer Sequoia looks very similar to the Toyota Tundra, which it shares a platform with.
The Sequoia has been rated an ultra low emission vehicle, which is quite a feat for an SUV of this size. It really puts the American car companies in their place, and it shows what a little innovation can do for a big vehicle.
The Sequoia might not be the common vehicle you'll find on your local used car lot, but they can be bought for a nice discount in used condition. My favorite stop for this is eBay, because I don't have to leave my seat and the prices are usually lower than when I look for used cars locally.
