This hybrid powertrain works together to achieve 21 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.1 If you’re planning to head out of the city and onto the trails, make sure your Toyota Sequoia is equipped with available four-wheel drive and available Multi-Terrain Select. These two systems will give you improved handling and customizable traction for ultimate confidence on tough terrain.

While the new 2023 Ford Explorer Hybrid offers some notable features, you’ll want to choose the all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia if you want to see the true power that a hybrid can hold. The Toyota Sequoia has a slightly bigger hybrid engine and is able to surpass the Ford Explorer Hybrid model’s maximum towing capacity and maximum available horsepower. You’ll also be able to fit one more passenger into the Toyota Sequoia than you can in the Ford Explorer Hybrid. When it comes to standard and available features, there’s really no competition. The Toyota Sequoia takes the lead, offering an available 14-inch touchscreen display, a standard sunroof and a standard trailer hitch. If you choose the Ford Explorer Hybrid, an available 10.1-inch touchscreen is the largest you can get. Plus, you’ll have to pay more to get a sunroof and trailer hitch — those features aren’t offered standard.

The winner is obvious, especially when you consider that the all-new 2023 Toyota Sequoia comes with ToyotaCare.5 This maintenance plan offers 24 months or 25,000 miles of scheduled services, all at no cost to you. If you’re ready to upgrade your driving experience, visit us today to test-drive the Toyota Sequoia.

Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. Installation of a tow hitch receiver or other accessories located near the rear bumper may require disabling or removing the kick sensor, and the sensor operation setting in your vehicle should be turned off. Follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual.
