Toyota Announces Full-Size SUV

A new full-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV) has been released by Toyota Motor Sales USA
Inc. The 2001 four-door Sequoia is based on the same platform as the full-size Tundra
pickup and is available in four-wheel drive (4WD) or two-wheel drive (2WD). The Sequoia
exterior dimensions are slightly larger than the Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon and nearly
identical to those of the Ford Expedition. Like the Tundra, the Sequoia is powered by the
4.7-liter V-8 (rated at 240 hp and 315 lb-ft of torque) and a four-speed automatic with
overdrive is standard equipment. Standard chassis features include four-wheel disc brakes
with ABS, coil spring independent front suspension and four-link coil spring rear
suspension. Three rows of seats provide for up to eight-passenger seating capacity. The
Sequoia is rated to tow 6,500 pounds in its 2WD form and 6,200 pounds in its 4WD model.
