One of our biggest challenges with a big family is the ability to go anywhere in one vehicle. And to even think about off-roading altogether? Nearly impossible. Until now.
2020 Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro
The Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro seats seven. Seven. That’s, at least, all of our original family. It’s also perfect for those of us that actually enjoy going off-road.
So, when we were given the opportunity recently to drive the 2020 Sequoia for a week, that’s what we did to test it out. We took it off road.
For starters, let’s get technical about the off-road features of the Sequoia TRD Pro:
- TRD Pro front and rear Fox Internal Bypass Shocks with piggyback reservoirs
