There have been numerous reports that the Toyota Sequoia will be exterminated, but those appear to be false. The Japanese automaker’s SUV – which is built in Indiana – has seen a massive sales drop, down 36 percent from last year’s numbers.
Despite these horrid sales numbers, Toyota still feels confident in the big SUV.
“Sequoia continues to be a profitable, high-quality vehicle for Toyota and several years remain in the life of the current generation,” the automaker said in a release sent out to the media.
While the Sequoia is suffering, the 4Runner is flourishing. The three-row SUV has seen its sales double, to 21,953, in the first six months of the year.
The massive Sequoia will likely continue the way it is for a few more years and after that, it seems like that will be it for the SUV. We would expect the 2012 would be its last year.
