2006 Toyota Sequoia Trims

Limited

Avg. Price: $16,173

The 2006 Toyota Sequoia is three years beyond a mid-generation styling refresh, which brought the only significant changes in the full size SUV's seven-year history. Four variations are available this year, with Limited and SR5 trims each offered as a 4x2 or 4x4.

Standard features on the Limited include full power accessories, cruise control, dual zone climate control, ten cup holders, a sunroof, leather heated seats, a ten speaker JBL sound system and keyless entry to that list. Options include a DVD navigation system and a rear seat DVD entertainment system.

The Sequoia is powered by the Tundra's 4.7 liter V-8. The addition of Toyota's i-FORCE boosts horsepower by seven and further reduces emissions. The V-8 supplies the 5300 pound SUV with 273 horsepower and 314 pound-feet of torque, which is enough power to tow 6500 pounds. A five speed automatic transmission routes power to the rear wheels on this model, and it receives an EPA estimate of 15/18 mpg. A rear height control air suspension system may also be added to the Limited trim.

SR5

Avg. Price: $14,604

The Toyota Sequoia is carried over for 2006. Toyota has not done much with the Sequoia since its 2000 introduction, aside from a minor mid-cycle update three years ago. This is Toyota's largest SUV, and the SR5 models offer spacious seating for eight passengers.

The Sequoia is priced in the Land Cruiser ballpark: even this entry level SR5 will cost over $30,000. Standard features are similar to that of the Lexus GX and LX SUVs, including dual zone climate control, power windows and locks, power down rear window, a six speaker CD audio system, and a noteworthy ten cup holders. A DVD-based navigation system can be added to both trims.

The sole power plant option is a 4.7 liter V-8, supported by Toyota's i-FORCE system. Thanks to this technology, the 273 horsepower and 314 pound-feet of torque engine has lower emissions. The Sequoia the first SUV to earn the ULEV ultra low emissions rating. Fuel economy is what one might expect for 270+ horsepower pulling 5000 pounds: 15/18 mpg.
