2013 Toyota Sequoia Drops 4.6L V8 Engine



In the market for a Toyota Sequoia with a 4.6L V8? Better make a move soon as the upcoming 2013 model will only be available with the 5.7L engine. According to a report from Car and Driver, the larger engine will now be the only option. The smaller of the V8 engines only makes 310 HP and 327 LB/Feet of torque. The soon to be standard unit provides 381 and 401 respectively. It is a $625 upgrade on the 2012 SR5 model and only slightly hurts fuel economy. On the 4WD city mileage remains the same regardless of engine and on the highway it only drops by one mile per gallon.

Should be interesting to see if Toyota reduces the number of engine choices for the Tundra model line as well. Time will tell I guess.

I doubt Toyota will drop that engine for the Tundra. I am not saying this because I own one, but the 4.6L was needed to get the coveted 20 MPG for a half-ton truck title. Until Toyota comes out with a next generation Tundra, I imagine the 4.6L will be around for a while. Plus, before the 4.6L engine was adopted into the Tundra, the 4.7L sales were pretty dismal. The small V8 version I would presume sells a lot better than the previous engine option.

As far as the option in the Sequoia, that is a smart move for Toyota. That vehicle is awfully expensive and this is a way of keeping the price up and making money.

Should be interesting. I saw a lot of the small engines at one dealer over half the trucks dc and cw had them. I don't recall how much cheaper they were but not an option for me. Even though specs show them at over 300 ponies. I have seen plenty of guys on bass fishing forums saying smaller v8 still pulls like a mule.
