#1118 of 1954 Trunk Space verification

Would you comment on this if you have compared 2008 Sequoia and the previous Sequoia.
For Trunk Space (2nd and 3rd down/3rd down/3rd up) :
2007 Sequoia - 128.1/65.3/26.6
2008 Sequoia from Toyota e-brochure - 120.8/79.4/28.4
2008 Sequoia from Edmunds full test - 120.1/66.6/18.9
Who is correct ?
I would like to believe that the 3rd-row-up space to be 28.4 as provided by Toyota.
Since itís difficult to understand that with the bigger exterior/interior dimensions and the rear independent suspension, 2008 Sequoia ends up with a smaller trunk space (18.9) than 2007ís (26.6).

I believe there is less interior room because the fold-down seats do not really fold into the floor. They just raised the stuff around it to create a new false floor that is higher.

"My guess is you probably can get what you want or very close to it. But you never know until you try."
Agreed.....I tried and ordered exactly what I wanted and in fact considered several combinations prior to my final order. The Toyota system would have accepted any of the combinations I was interested in on the 08 Sequoia.
Until someone suggests they tried a combination and it wasn't accepted by the system, I think its fair to say that any combination of options available at the Toyota website can be placed on the Sequoia. The only limitation is likely to be how long you're willing to wait.
Obviously there are some options that cannot be combined because they are replacements for one another. You can't get the 6cd changer with the rear entertainment because the JBL system that goes with the rear entertainment already has a 4cd changer. Other than this example I'm not aware of any options listed as available at the Toyota website than cannot be combined.
In reality, there aren't even that many 08 Sequoia options to consider compared to a Chevy Suburban or Yukon XL. http://www.toyota.com/sequoia/options.html

Does anyone know the exact interior floor dimensions for the 08 Sequoia when the 3rd row is down and the 2nd row is also folded down? I assume a 48" X 96" sheet of plywood does not fit inside with the hatch closed (as it did in the previous gen Suburban and the current Honda Odyssey).
Anyone have a current 08 Sequoia that could post the floor dimensions from their vehicle? Take the shortest point between the wheelwells and from front to back with the hatch closed and seats down as if the object were lying flat on the floor and only an inch or 2 high.

Cold Kit is available and in good supply for Sequoia in the southeast.

This forum has been really helpful. I have(now had) a 2001 SR5 Sequoia that had 52,000 miles on it, but my wife and I started to look for a new one and wanted to upgrade to the Limited. Started contacting local dealers including the one where we bought our first Sequoia and was not getting any real deals, but a post I read here suggested a dealer in NJ, which I contacted and while I did not buy from them, it did help me to negotiate locally and we just picked up our 2008 Limited in Silver Sky Metallic this past Friday. We love it in every respect. Comparing it to what we just traded in is no contest, the upgraded engine, interior, ride feel, steering feel, fold down flat seats(probably the best feature of all since we have 2 BIG dogs and hated to have to keep taking out the old style seats), this vehicle is great. Because of the help found here, we paid less than $1000 over invoice and got the features we wanted and more. We bought it on a sunday and we were called on Wed. that our vehicle had been found and delivered. Got the color we wanted, with the options we asked for + the Sonar parking assist which we did not even ask for, but it is pretty cool.
Thanks again to this forum for helping us work a good fair deal.
Just waiting for some more snow here in CT to really put it to work!

We got the cold air kit without any problem. Actually none of the things we wanted were any issue.

Could you comment on the trunk space behind 3rd row ?
Your 2001 vs. your new 2008.

Congratulations. Sounds like you got an excellent deal and that being an educated consumer using info from this site helped in keeping money in your account instead of the dealer's. Glad to hear the info I shared earlier was helpful. Good luck with your new Sequoia.
