toyota sequoia 2004
The Sequoia is an excellent lorry for big family members, especially for those who draw trailers. It supplies three rows of seats capable of carrying eight passengers. Though big, it's remarkably manoeuvrable. It's wonderful for pulling.
All models are well geared up, and Toyota has actually improved worth for 2004 by including equipment without elevating the base rate. The less costly SR-5 model adds common dual-zone front as well as back climate control as well as power front seats. The high-trim Sequoia Limited now comes criterion with a power moonroof.
If the area, lugging ability as well as off-road capability of a truck-based, full-size sport-utility are what you need, the Toyota Sequoia is tough to beat.
The Toyota Sequoia is available in 2 trim levels: SR5 and Limited. Both are powered by a 240-horsepower 4.7-liter V8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel-drive as well as four-wheel-drive are offered.
The SR5 ($ 31,625) comes criterion with power windows, mirrors as well as door locks, cruise control, automated dual-zone climate control, power front seats, an AM/FM stereo with both cassette and also CD players, ABS with brake assist, as well as 16-inch styled steel wheels. Four-wheel-drive ($ 3,530) is extra on both versions.
The Limited ($ 40,900) includes natural leather furniture, heated seats as well as outside mirrors, color-keyed body, costs JBL stereo with 10 audio speakers, a power slide-and-tilt moonroof, a roofing rack and also 17-inch aluminum wheels.
Both trim lines come conventional with a lot of safety and security tools. The electronic security control system could help remedy a skid when cornering. Grip control keeps the wheels from sliding when speeding up in unsafe driving problems. Front air bags are basic, as are three-point safety belt for all 8 areas. Front side-impact as well as head-protection airbags are optional ($ 500).
Toyota allows its consumers extra flexibility with optional tools compared to several producers. The SR-5 can be outfitted with the majority of the Minimal content in numerous choice bundles. These consist of a Preferred Bundle ($ 1,770) with the natural leather and premium stereo with a six-disc in-dash changer. An Alloy Wheel Package ($ 1,835) adds P265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch edges, color-coordinated fender flares as well as running boards, rear privacy glass, a hauling receiver drawback, seven-pin wiring harness converter and high-power alternator. The Convenience Package ($ 255) includes warmed outside mirrors, a journey computer with compass, outside temperature, current and typical gas usage and also fuel variety functions, and also a HomeLink global transceiver. Stand alone alternatives for the SR-5 include the power tilt/slide moonroof with sunshade ($ 1,000), roof rack ($ 220), remote keyless entry ($ 245), trailer bundle ($ 380)), the costs stereo with a 6-disc in-dash CD changer ($ 715), rear-seat audio controls ($ 240) as well as a rear-seat amusement bundle with a DVD viewer as well as the back sound controls ($ 1,770).
Alternatives for the Limited version are, well, restricted. They consist of the DVD home entertainment system, rear-seat sound, in-dash CD changer ($ 200), a rear self-leveling suspension ($ 360), and a back looter ($ 200).
Sequoia's general look is tidy, deliberate and, most of all, big. The Sequoia takes its styling cues from the Toyota Tundra full-size pick-up. Both are developed at the same setting up plant in Princeton, Indiana. Sequoia could be the most cautiously styled full-size SUV offered. The back looks even more like a minivan than a vehicle.
Sequoia's front and rear doors are perfectly incorporated and also healthy proportionally with the rearmost seating and cargo location. They swing open and gathered phenomenal lightness, but shut with a nice, secure thunk. The home window in the rear liftgate in fact rolls down, much like those on the wood-paneled station wagons of the '60s and '70s. That readies, because this is a huge automobile. The liftgate swings so high that it's a long stretch for individuals five-feet tall, despite the hanging assist band.
Sequoia's overhangs, particularly the front, are short, so the approach as well as separation angles are good for off-roading. The Minimal design has body colored wheel arches, mirrors and also molding, instead of black. It's likewise identified by its fog lights, running boards and also basic alloy wheels. Toyota hasn't required to the pattern of decking its SUVs with big swathes of black plastic or plastic, and in our view that readies.
Getting in and out of the Sequoia can be an obstacle, especially for smaller sized children and also Grandmother. Running boards are available and are exceptionally useful, in addition to the grab deals with mounted just inside the doorframes. However you should be prepared to raise yourself up and right into this automobile. A large beast like the Sequoia calls for some physical mastery, and that its owners not be afraid of heights.
Once in, there's a powerful sight from every seat. The large, superb leather seats in the Minimal design are incredibly comfy, as well as warmed.
Controls comply with Toyota's classic, and also handy, typical: Lights on the left stalk, wipers on the right. Stereo and also climate-control buttons as well as handles are larger than those in many vehicles and are clustered in a case in the facility of the dash. Undoubtedly, the temperature level as well as follower dials are the biggest in the Sequoia, which takes a little getting utilized to. Our impulse was to alter the indoor temperature level when we wished to readjust the quantity. All buttons have an enjoyable feeling, yet we have a couple of nitpicks. The clock is installed too reduced in the center of the dashboard, as well as covered from sight by the climate-control switches. And also not everybody are captivated with the metal-tone trim that adorns the switch collections on the doors and dash.
Toyota's focus on detail can be seen everywhere inside the Sequoia. The terrifically large bin in between the front seats is split into 2 levels. The top level has a fold-out clipboard as well as spring-loaded coin slots. The bottom degree has a shaped, bookshelf-like CD holder to maintain to eight CDs from rattling around, however there's enough room left over to hold a six-pack or a reasonably sized bag. The door pockets are narrow, however there are 2 open bins at the front of the console, lined with rubber and also deep enough to maintain cellular phone or wallets from moving about. An above console holds sunglasses. The motorist information center includes a compass, outside temperature level scale, and gas economic situation stats, such as miles until empty and also mpg.
The three-passenger second-row seat huges, contoured and comfy. The seat backs recline over a wide variety, as well as the rear sound and also environment controls on Sequoia's so equipped are prominently positioned on the rear of the big facility console, within very easy reach of all three second-row seats settings, in addition to those in front. The seat itself splits 60/40 to fold up.
The Sequoia is a champ if you need to transfer lots of kids often. We claim kids since they'll have one of the most power and dexterity to jump over the middle-row to obtain to the third-row seats. However, asking full-sized adults to crawl back there isn't most likely to cost you a few pals. A bar on the curbside of the 2nd seat releases a spring-loaded system that drops the seatback as well as turns the entire seat ahead. It clears a rather large path to the back, as well as the middle seat is easy to plop back as soon as travelers are aboard.
The three-place third row is about as good as they get. Legroom is limited compared with the 2nd row, but the seatbacks recline as well as there's enough headroom. Better, the entire third row also moves fore/aft over a range of eight inches, to readjust for even more legroom or more storage behind the seat. With the third seat up and all the means onward, there's room behind for a big luggage and also a couple of carry-on bags.
For more freight area, the third-row seats are very easy to tumble forward, or they can be removed completely with a bit a lot more initiative. With them rolled, we located sufficient space for a jogging infant stroller, an infant backpack and all the remainder of the equipment required for a day walk. For maximum cargo lugging, you can remove the third-row seats and also fold and also tumble the second-row seats. After that there suffices space back there to clear out Toys 'R United States during a clearance sale.
