September 20, 2012 12:00 AM

Toyota announced that its 2013 Sequoia will have a host of new features and an improved standard engine on all models. The carmaker revealed what drivers can expect from the large vehicle's next model, and those who want luxury from their next SUV are in luck.

The 381 horsepower engine is now the norm, with the automaker discontinuing the smaller 4.6-liter V8 engine that it offered in models last year. This new machinery boasts a tow rating of up to 7,400 pounds, and the vehicle also has a two-wheel or four-wheel drive system.

Limited and Platinum Editions of the vehicle are available for buyers who want an upgraded interior and bonus features. Included in these premium models are navigation tools and 14-speaker sound systems. As Motortrend reports, these features are complemented by a Blu-Ray rear-seat entertainment system, making it the first Toyota model to offer such an advanced entertainment package.

Vehicle maintenance is made easy with many of these improvements, with sonar parking, a blindspot monitoring system and a built-in system tracking the pressure of the tires. The Limited and Platinum Editions also provide top-of-the-line mirrors for the safest driving experience possible.
