2012 Toyota Sequoia

Posted: 03/29/2012 - 10:36 PM ET

While you shouldn’t expect anything more than mediocre gas mileage the 2012 Toyota Sequoia has much to offer consumers. Starting at $40,930 and with a newly redesigned exterior, this year’s Sequoia is a hot commodity. It comes with standard halogen headlights with headlight wipers, an appealing chrome grille and 18” aluminum-alloy wheels. 20” sport aluminum-alloy wheels are also available. Unlike many other SUVs, the 2012 Sequoia comes with windshield wiper de-icers, for times when standard windshield wipers just won’t do the trick. Running boards and both front and rear mud flaps are also standard. A skid plate will ensure that the belly of the Sequoia stays unscathed during off-road expeditions.

Inside the Sequoia there is a triple-zone front and back climate control. This allows the front passenger and drive to each have their own temperature, as well as the backseat passengers. This way everyone can be happy. Standard on the base model, the SR5, are 8 speakers, through which consumers can enjoy the sounds of AM/FM, CD, MP3, or the free three-month trial of Sirius XM satellite radio. The Toyota Sequoia Limited has a JBL Synthesis 14-speaker sound system that can play CD, AM/FM, Sirius XM (three-month trial) and MP3. The high-end model, the Platinum, not only has a 14-speaker JBL Synthesis system, but a touchscreen GPS navigation system/DVD player/rearview backup camera and NavTraffic through Sirius XM satellite radio. The SR5 comes with comfortable power-operated fabric seats, while the Limited has heated leather seating. The Sequoia Platinum comes with heated and perforated leather seating, with thigh and lumbar support. The steering-wheel-mounted controls are for operating Bluetooth connectivity, adjusting audio settings and using the cruise control. The test drivers loved how much visibility it provides, especially for a large-size SUV. All models also come with keyless entry, one-touch power and front passenger windows and an automatically dimming rearview mirror to shade the driver’s eyes from high-beams behind them. An overhead storage console and center storage console provide functional and easily accessible storage for smaller items. The SR5 and Limited also come with a hearty 16 cup holders. The Platinum has 18.

With a vehicle this large you definitely want it to be one of the safer automobiles on the road. Indeed, the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is incredibly safe. It comes with Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control, which apply power and brakes to select wheels, as needed, during a skid or slide. Whenever the Sequoia begins to veer off-course in hazardous conditions, VSC and TRAC will be there to ensure the safety of all occupants. Anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, SmartStop Technology and Brake Assist bolster the Sequoias already sterling reputation for safety. Energy-absorbing impact zones direct energy received during a collision around the frame of the body, rather than into the occupants. A blind spot monitoring system and Trailer Sway Control should give peace of mind to the driver, as well as other drivers on the road.

The SR5, Limited and Platinum are all available in either 2WD or 4WD. The SR5 has a 4.6-liter i-FORCE Double Overhead Camshaft V8 engine, with 32 valves and 310 horsepower. The 2012 Toyota Sequoia Limited steps it up a notch, with a 5.7-liter i-FORCE Double Overhead Camshaft V8 engine with 32 valves and 381 ponies. Finally, there’s the Platinum model, which boasts the same engine as the Limited model. The SR5 2WD gets 20 MPG highway and 14 around town, while the 4WD version gets 18/13. The Limited 2WD and Platinum 2WD also get 18/13, while the 4WD models of each obtain a measly 17/13 MPG.

So if you’re looking for a durable, dependable and reliable SUV with serious heavy-duty capabilities, make sure that you at least give the 2012 Toyota Sequoia a serious look. Heck, take it for a test drive. The worst that can happen is you won’t like it.

I've driven the 2010 Toyota Sequoia quite a bit actually and really like the heavy-duty capabilities. I will say that the handling is pretty abysmal, but the V8 engine can provide enough power to make you forget about the handling. Gas mileage sucks, but then again, it IS a huge SUV.

Last year Toyota is the most availed car in our country because of its finest and newest car edition. However some car owners that I have been talked this year said that this car brand has a time where driver will be annoyed while driving because of the engine sound. First sound smoothly but on the later part it becomes so noisy. - Marla Ahlgrimm

This is really a very informative post. I am completely agreed with the content provided here that not every one can afford a special edition car whether it is a wish of every one to have one. Most of the times money doesn't support us to have a special edition car. 32 Inch Hair Extensions
