I called Toyota and asked a rep about the arrival date of the 2008 Sequoia. I was told it will be available in late Sept/early Oct of 2007. I have a 2004 Escalade ESV which comes off lease in November. I work with dogs and need to carry cages as well as kids. So far the old GM body seems to hold the most. The new Escalade second row seats don't fold flat. I am thinking the new Sequoia will be almost Surburban sized. The Ford Expedition EL just doesn't impress me. Hope Toyota comes up with great redesign.

I knew Toyota had something new and exciting up their sleeve. Odds are it won't be in the 2008 but it could show up in the 2009. I'm sure that is why Toyota was confident enough to build bigger. They knew they had new engine/diesel/hybrid technology being released that would raise gas mileage. I'll definetly be leasing an 08 in atticipation of changing out to an 2009 or 2010 as the new engine is introduced.

Where did you hear about the new engine? And why not wait til 2009 or '10 if you're just going to swap it out? Seems like a waste of money to lease for a year or two. Leases are bad deals anyways, unless you have a business.

I think it is amazing the dealers know nothing of an update....most in this area don't know much about the cars they sell.
Is there any way to find out how much larger the 2008 will be? I heard it might be more "Surburban" sized.

On right side of INSIDELINE home page. I NEED to get into an 08 Sequoia... I've been waiting to get rid of my 02 Seqouia for 3 years as people kept saying the new model was coming out. Leases are better short term deals. You'll pay less in a lease than the depreciation in the first two years (more so for $40,000 plus values)... especially during a new model switch... less buyers will want an older model.

Waiting!!! I also heard the rumors that the new model was coming out "this year". I have a 93 Ford Bronco have wanted to trade it in on a NEW 2005 Sequoia which I thought would be the Next Generation Sequoia but it wasn't. I am still waiting on the Next Generation Sequoia hopefully my long wait will pay off but I can't wait too much longer...

that's probably true, although you're limited in the amount of mileage you can put on and even down payments for leases are rising. I still think it is a bad deal but sometimes they work for people. I did it once, won't do it again.

...soon be over..i hear somewhere between September and November but i guess time will only tell...toyota is certainly keeping the wraps on the new Sequoia. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on it. Personally I am going to wait for the '09 or '10 model before i buy. I want to see if there are any bugs with the new model, plus i want to see if they are going to make any changes after the first year. It's tough, but I think I can handle the wait. I have an '04 Toyota 4Runner that runs perfectly so it's not like my ride is going to break down or anything...

I too am waiting for the '08s I have a '01 limited. What is nice about "getting the bugs out" is that the '07 Tundra is the proving ground for the engine and drivetrain as they have what the seq will have this year. We have already heard of an engine problem in the new v8 that had to be fixed. I need the new towing capacity but am not thrilled with a longer vehicle. It may make me look at other vehicles like Ford Expedition or Nissan Armada. like to consider everything....
