Toyota introduced its full-size SUV, the Sequoia in 2000. The large sport utility vehicle has been manufactured right here in the United States of America, in the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana plant in Princeton, Indiana, ever since. The Sequoia sits between Toyota’s mid-size 4Runner, and it’s premium Land Cruiser, as the brand’s luxury full-size SUV. The 2015 Toyota Sequoia is part of the SUV’s second generation, and received no major changes for this new model year.
The 2015 Toyota Sequoia is the perfect family vehicle, featuring a lot of extra space for passengers, as well as cargo.

When designing the 2015 Sequoia, Toyota went to extremes to ensure that the full-size SUV would offer the most amount of space for passengers, cargo, and everything in between. The Sequoia has many excellent added amenities to make for a great ride, but it is within the cabin space that the Sequoia truly shines.

Power Reclining Third Row Seats
