The 2020 Sequoia lineup receives several updates. The biggest addition is the new off-road-ready TRD Pro model that's outfitted with a lifted suspension and other add-ons to conquer unruly roads and trails. Also showcased on other Toyota products such as the Tacoma pickup truck and the 4Runner SUV, the TRD-tuned version is much more than just an appearance package. The rest of the Sequoia lineup also receives long-awaited infotainment features, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as a mobile hotspot.

Pros
Third row is actually comfortable, all driver assists are standard, iron-clad reliability from Toyota.

Cons
Drives like a pickup truck, worst-in-class interior quality, new tech can't hide old bones.
