Auto123 reviews the 2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro.

As I began my test drive of this big Japanese 4x4, my mind wandered inevitably back to an event 12 years past. The day after press day at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, Toyota Canada invited a gaggle of automotive columnists - at a time when the word "influencer" wasn't even part of the vernacular yet - to discover four new models in the Motor City: the Toyota Corolla and its cousin the Matrix, the Lexus LX570 ... and the largest Toyota SUV ever released in North America, the Sequoia. At the time, the big SUV was fighting the good fight versus the other pachyderms on the market. The model is still with us today, but there’s no getting around the reality that in the interim, much has changed in the automotive domain!

To put things in perspective, the Toyota Sequoia that first launched in 2001 received an update for that 2008 model year. Since then, though, nothing - absolutely nothing - has been done to the imposing vehicle, except for a discreet redesign in 2018, the highlight of which was a reshaped headlamp signature.

Meanwhile across the street at General Motors, that company’s large SUVs (Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon/Cadillac Escalade) were modernized twice, in 2006 and again in 2014. And in case you didn't know, GM's big SUVs are all shiny and new again for the 2021 model-year.
