For 2020, Toyota announced a fourth member of the TRD Pro family, the seven-passenger Sequoia SUV. Following in its pickup sibling’s footsteps, the Sequoia TRD Pro offerings mirror those of the Tundra TRD Pro almost exactly. The standard dampers are swapped out for more robust aluminum-bodied performance units from Fox. The front coilovers are 2.5-inch internal bypass units that feature seven compression and two rebound zones. The rear shocks are 2.0-inch monotubes with a piggyback reservoir. The Sequoia TRD Pro has a reduced front spring rate compared to a normal Sequoia for enhanced off-road performance.
Adorning the Sequoia TRD Pro is a lettered “Toyota” grille, Rigid Industries LED foglights, and black forged aluminum BBS wheels. It also comes fitted with black cast-aluminum running boards, an aluminum front skidplate, and black roof rack. TRD Pro-embroidered front seat headrests and exterior badging let the world know that this is no ordinary Sequoia. Fitted to our test vehicle was the available TRD performance exhaust system. TRD Pro all-weather floormats round out the package.
