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.

Toyota applied a similar strategy recently when they announced the four-cylinder engine was discontinued for the Sienna. Pricing for the 2013 Toyota Sequoia has as yet to be announced.
