[PHOTO GALLERY] 2012 Toyota Sequoia revealed image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently revealed its 2012 model year Sequoia, which even if it doesn’t seem that appealing, it’s definitely one interesting appearance.

As you can see from the images below, the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is actually based on the same underpinnings as the Toyota Tundra full-size pickup and it comes with a heavily chromed snout, being designed to intimidate. The new Toyota Sequoia comes with a chromed grille, tall hood and flanks, flared fenders, chunky door handles, chromes mirrors and rippled sheetmetal, all of these features contributing to its “muscular” exterior design.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is coming with a choices of two engines, both of them V8, the first one being a 4.7 liter which is developing a total output of 310 horsepower, being mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, while the second one is a larger 5.7 liter which is generating 381 horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive technology. Toyota says that the larger 5.7 liter V8 engine is developing a greater torque output which is helping the 2012 Sequoia’s tow ratings range up to 7.400 pounds.

The interior hasn’t been left unchanged by the Japanese based automaker and the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is now offering more room for the driver, front and rear passengers, along with the trailer sway control system and blind-spot monitor offered as standard. Other interesting features found on the 2012 Sequoia include just about everything starting with the keyless entry and ending with the XM satellite radio.
