The Toyota Sequoia has been a loyal solider for Toyota’s broader plans to dominate the SUV segment. On sale for well over 13 years in its current form, this grizzled veteran was recently admitted to the TRD Pro lineup a short time ago, and the big three row SUV gains even more refinement for 2021.
This time around, Toyota is focusing on the finer details with a new special edition model and revised equipment and pricing. The Sequoia Nightshade Edition was first unveiled back in February, but Toyota has finally revealed how much it would cost to add one of these sinister looking models to your driveway. Choose a 4×2 model, and you will be presented with a $60,120 base sticker, while the 4×4 model starts slightly higher at $63,345. The Nightshade Edition uses the Limited model as a base, and that means customers will get plenty of standard equipment to go with its dark motif. Customers looking for an alternate to the Midnight Black theme can equip the Nightshade Edition with either Magnetic Grey, or Super White.
Meanwhile, the fore-mentioned TRD Pro model starts at $64,225. Like several other TRD Pro offerings, the Sequoia retires Army Green for 2021, with the color making way for Lunar Rock paint. Other color choices include Midnight Black, Magnetic Gray, or Super White, with the TRD Pro version still maintaining its trail ready attitude.
In addition to these minor changes, the eight passenger SUV also enters 2021 with some tweaks to the pricing ladder. A base model will now start at $50,100 which is $120 more than last year. The most expensive Sequoia offering will continue to be the range topping Platinum model which starts at $69,375.
Buyers that are perhaps looking to wait for the next generation model to appear will have to wait a bit for it to arrive, with rumors suggesting that an all out revamp will not take place until the 2022 or 2023 model year. The next generation model is expected to maintain its pickup based roots, and will continue to be based on the Toyota Tundra. On that note, the next generation Tundra is expected to bow as early as 2022, with some of its refinements being filtered down into the generation Sequoia.
