2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
This vehicle is underpowered, and in my opinion, was designed primarily for soccer moms transporting kids to and from the field/mall. It was not designed for trailer towing. We tow a 4000# trailer in the warmer months and the vehicle has a very hard time doing it. In trying to pass a slow moving vehicle let alone just accelerate, the engine makes a lot of noise but nothing happens. We are well within the towing limits of the vehicle given trailer weight, passenger/cargo weights etc. We already get bad gas mileage so having a larger engine really wouldn't change things; we would just get more power out.
My wife likes it.
A more capable engine, a frame to allow for higher capacity towing.
