Full size Sequoia SUV from Toyota based on the new Tundra, has plenty of room, power and trailering. Loaded Platinum Hybrid TRD off-road fits family of 7, tows 9520 lbs. climbs mountains. 3.4L twin turbo V-6 hybrid with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Comfortable ride 4×4, with four corner coil springs and a multi-link rear suspension. I-Force Max hybrid with VVT-I electric Motor/generator 437 horsepower and 583 lb-ft. or torque. Drive mode selects including tow-haul with great power. Power extended towing mirrors and a trailer brake controller. Auto-slip differential. 20 inch wheels. In the TRD Off-Road Package, including all-terrain tires, off-road suspension using Bilstein shocks, skid plates and sport peddles that look cool. Crawl Control for climbing mountains and more. I like the 4 leather captains chairs, the third row slides and reclines. 14 inch main tough screen was the right size. All for $82,338, retail. Captains chairs, heated seats, adjustable third row that reclines and charging ports for each row. Behind rear row, has an adjustable shelf that can cover your cargo. Power folding 2nd and 3rd row seats gives you a large cargo area. Second row has manual sun screens on the windows. New power sliding tow mirrors. Trailer brake controls with most of the controls on each side of the steering wheel that are had  to see without tilting your head. Big center console for storage and arm rests. Tow haul modes with sport and eco modes.

Phone charger was unique because it angled up for better visibility. Great camera’s, 360 degrees and  on top of hitch for hooking up. Camera on the trailer tires and a front camera, so you know where the cliff ends. The Toyota Sequoia’s mirror was a camera with a wider view of the road behind you and with flatbed trailers, you could see past the trailer. Panoramic moon roof is great in the mountains, you can spot wildlife. Izzy helped me drive through mountain curves of Poudre Canyon by Ft. Collins, she liked the great smooth ride towing maximum trailer weights on the curvy mountain roads. Fuel milage is 19 in city and 22 on the highway by the EPA. We experienced 9.3 with the 9520 lb. trailer.

Lunar Rock was the Sequoia’s color, I call it cement.  Plenty of protection underneath with skid plates including nose bash plate.  Heads Up Display, my favorite was 10 in. helps you to keep your eyes on the road. You have to enter your trailer info to have trailer brakes, which can catch you off guard. Body on frame makes this full size SUV a truck. Another thing  that helps with towing self leveling headlights. In the past, there was a thumb dial you used to change the headlight angle. Toyota Safety Sense 2.5, is a collection of advanced driving aids that includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert, lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, and front and rear park assist.  14 JBL speakers gave you surround sound. 3 zone climate control made all the passengers happy. Heated and ventilated first two rows of captain chairs. Wheel locks, makes since with 20 inch alloy wheels and tires that aren’t cheap.
