Along the updates announced for the Sequoia, Toyota also announced the modifications prepared for the TRD Pro edition.

The TRD Pro badge signifies pinnacle trail capability. Equipped to handle the rough stuff, the Sequoia TRD Pro still retains comfort for daily driving thanks to its internal bypass Fox shocks. This rugged model, available exclusively in the seven-seat configuration, comes standard with Multi-Mode 4WD and proven off-road equipment specially designed and selected by Toyota Racing Development engineers.

Compared to external-bypass shocks used on off-road race vehicles, the Fox internal bypass shocks employed on Sequoia TRD Pro compactly integrate bypass zones inside the shock body, allowing the shock’s fluid to bypass the piston through regulated ports as it moves through its travel. Providing a cushioned ride during typical driving, the Fox shock damping gets progressively firmer through the shock piston’s stroke to resist bottoming over rough trail surfaces.

In addition to TRD Pro-exclusive Lunar Rock, exterior color choices include the Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic and new-for-2022 Wind Chill Pearl. Special TRD styling makes this Sequoia an eye grabber on road or trail. The TRD Pro grille with the “TOYOTA” name in big, bold letters leads the charge, augmented by LED fog lights by Rigid Industries. A TRD front skid plate helps protect the front suspension and oil pan. The 18×8-in. black BBS forged aluminum wheels wear P275/65 R18 tires. Cast-aluminum black running boards and a TRD black roof rack enhance function and style.

For a finishing touch that makes a statement, an available TRD cat-back exhaust system with single black chrome tip and “TRD” debossed logo produces a bolder exhaust note than other Sequoia models. Meanwhile, a frequency-tuned sound-cancellation device improves in-cabin sound quality.
