Edmunds.com reports the 2008 Toyota Sequoia will be replacing its current solid live axle with independent rear suspension.
Edmunds.com: "An independent suspension offers the promise of a better ride, plus improved interior packaging, which translates to a more usable third-row seat for passengers and cargo. Previous spy video indicates the rear seat is a power-folding 60/40-split bench."
The Sequoia also will share the 2007 Toyota Tundra engines, the 4.7-liter and 5.7-liter V-8s, and be available in five- or six-speed automatic transmissions. Sensors on the front bumpers also show evidence the Sequoia will have Adaptive cruise control.
