    Now THAT I like. If I had need of a family wagon, and the money for a Sequoia(they are proud of them things!), then I would definitely drive one of those.

    I think it is funny how people are getting excited about the '2023' Sequoia. My wife just traded in her Highlander for a 2022 Sequoia because she does not want to deal with the new technology of the '2023'. My local dealer averages less than one Sequoia sale per year, but right now they have three orders for new 2022's.

    I could recommend buying a used 2016+ Seq to bridge you til the 2023 is Beta tested, but the used prices are ridiculous right now. We lucked into this '19 SR5 with 29k miles for $36k OTD back in February. One of a rental fleet a KIA dealer bought wholesale and wanted them off the used lot fast. I see former SR5 rentals on Autotrader now asking $50k+.

    Anyhow, maybe the 2023 will be 2nd row bench on all trims because the hybrid battery will reside under it. Maybe SR5 will have the upgrade leather package and power passenger seat like the current gen.

    Last I heard it will be revealed Q2 2022 as a 2023MY, production begins 3Q 2022, on lots late 4Q 2022.

    I'm looking forward to the reveal - will it retain the Torsen center diff? Retain IRS? If IRS will it have a rear locker? Hybrid only on all trims?

    Five years from now this '19 will have about 140k miles on it. 4-5mpg increase across the board puts a big dent in fuel cost driving 20k miles per year. I'll be monitoring fuelly.com to see real-world mpg from the TTV6 and hybrid.

    I would love a Sequoia but I don't want to wait.

    At this point you have to assume it's still a *minimum* 14-18mos away. Maybe even two model years.

    The Sequoia is a Tundra SUV. Think of the new 3rd gen Tundra...the '23 Sequoia will basically be that...but an SUV. For some reason, I think all the specs, features, and interior of the 3rd gen Tundra are going to be awesome in an SUV format. As a truck, though??? I don't know. I mean, yeah it'll probably be awesome, but I'll stick to my 2nd gen with the v8/6speed to be the family camping adventuremobile.
    I'm keeping the Yukon running for another year at least. It has 145k miles. No major issues, but lots of little ones. Electrical problems have stranded my wife twice in the last year. The entire interior rattles as we drive down the road. Feels like it's going to fall apart, but I've come to accept that's just the way it is. It's paid off, and I really want to replace it with something a bit less thirsty. I couldn't imagine having two Toyota 5.7s.:eek2:

    It would be nice if there is a second row bench option on the '23. If we can't get an XL wheelbase, a second row bench would allow us to keep the third row stowed most of the time.
    Nah. Toyota is right on schedule. It'll debut 2023 model year.

    As of right now we have zero official anything about it.

    Again even if it's a 2023 we likely won't get it until late 2022 at the soonest.

    I hope you're right.

    We saw the official model timeline and the Sequoia was slated as 2023, so it's not zero official.

    I guess my old brain forgot the number. Guess it was a 2022, like the tundra was originally '21. Still, it's something official that they are likely trying to keep to, so I don't think '23 is a far off expectation for it.

    I forgot about the timeline myself until I saw your post about one. I think well start seeing spy shots sometime next year with a possible reveal towards the end of the year

    Q4 of a year is generally the beginning of the next model year. I bought my ‘21 Tundra in September ‘20. Heck, that’s the end of Q3! Q4 of ‘20 starts in Oct.

    Also, the 1st and 2nd gen Sequoias followed the 1st and 2nd gen Tundras one year later. So when it says 2022, I’m inclined to think that the end of ‘22, which would be ‘23 model year. But if it’s sooner, then great!

    Thanks. He asks where the hybrid battery will reside since the Seq 2nd row has to slide forward to access the 3rd row. Good question. Underbody seems difficult to do, would have to make a lot of modifications to the fuel tank and exhaust.

    My guess is the storage compartment under the cargo area will be sacrificed for the hybrid battery.

    Hmmm, that would put ~300lbs behind the rear axle. Would work though with proper rear coils, it's not difficult to design coilsprings that handle constant heavy load and provide a smooth ride at the same time. And cheap to do, Eibach, Dobinson do it all the time.

    Between the axles for weight distribution seems to be ideal, which brings me back to under the 2nd row and jiggering the seat mechanism. Maybe under the 3rd row?

    I saw pics of the Tundra hybrid and there are vents on each side of the rear seat. I don't think 'cooling' vents would be possible if the batt was under the cargo floor. Well, it will be interesting what they come up with.

    Yeah it would be hard to imagine the hybrid batteries being over or behind the rear axle. There’s not much room between the bottom of the rear seat and the spare tire. But who knows? Maybe they’ll be under the second row but split so you can still walk between the captains chairs to get to the 3rd row. I can’t imagine they’ll be in a drastically different location given that this’ll be the same platform as the 3rd gen Tundra.

    Regardless, I’ll probably skip on the hybrid version.

    if it looks like either of the 2 renditions above, sign me up. i have owned 2 sequoias and loved them. just couldn't pull the trigger on another one since it has virtually been unchanged since '08
