#7696 of 8984 Any word on 2005 Redesign ?
Nov 05, 2003 (10:01 am)
There has not been much talk on the upcoming redesign of Sequoia. My gut feel is that Toyota is going to drop the 4.7L V8 and go for a bigger displacement 5.6L plus engine on the LC and Sequoia and keep the 4.7L on the 4-Runner in order to stay in league with Nissan Armada and GM and Ford SUVs. Has anyone else heard anything on this ? It is about time Toyota went with a bigger displacement engine as 4.7L is little underpowered for the size of these SUVs.

Where are you located? As for whether it is a good deal or not, it depends on what part of the country you are in. I am in So.Cal. and just bought a '03 White 4X2 Limited for $9000 off MSRP (plus TTL and $45 doc fee). Many dealers are advertising $9,000 to $10,000 off MSRP on 4X4 Limited here. Not many offering such discount on 4X2 as they are mostly soldout. Hope this helps.

In reference to my earlier post #7695, I am located in PA. I've been talking to dealers within 100 miles. Maybe, I need to widen my search.

Coupedncal, I heard that Toyota will phase out the Toy-LC/Lex-LX, and make the Seq. the top end Toy model, with a luxury version made for Lex. These changes would, of course, come when the new re-design is introduced in a year or two. By the way, anyone else here visit tundrasolutions(dot)com? They have an excellent Seq. forum

Anyone know of a dealer in Ga. that doesn't haggle when asking to buy a Seq. at invoice?
#7702 of 8984 Dealers....

Non-haggling dealers only exist for those that buy at MSRP or above.
Learn to enjoy the experience, make a few educational trips to Tijuana.

Wwest, it certainly looks like the $9000 to $10000 off MSRP mentioned above, has to be close to invoice (it actually seems like they are selling under invoice). And since they are advertising these prices, it doesn't seem like they would have any room to haggle, yes? Let me put it like this... I KNOW that there are dealers out there that sell at invoice without haggling. My challenge is to find one in GA.

I can not imagine Toyota will drop the legendary brand of Land cruiser from their lineup as it has a rich history and diehard following (myself included) all over the world. That would be plain and simple STUPID. If there really is a need to consolidate, then they need to drop the Sequoia name and make the new chassis adaptable for both Sequoia and LC buyers.
And besides, LC is still sold over the world under various chassis and why would Toyota drop this name from their largest market ?

Seq. and LC are just NAMES. YES, the current LC may have better performance than the 3 year old Sequoia, but the Sequoia will be re-designed in a year or two and will most likely be a MUCH improved vehicle. Is there some reason to think Toyota couldn't design a Seq. that matched the LC's features/performance? Toy. sells MANY more Seq. than LC, in the US at least. LC was around WAY before everybody wanted an SUV, but now Toy. has the Seq., which has proven to be a top SUV seller. Perhaps Toy. wants to trim down its line-up. I suppose Toy may not be too worried about people that would only buy a LC for the nameplate, if a newly re-designed Sequoia offers similar features/performance. I'll try to find the link that initially had the "rumour".
