2008 Toyota Sequoia, Now With Independent Rear Suspension!

We're told this black-wrapped test mummy vehicle is the new 2008 Toyota Sequoia. Although it's as heavily wrapped in tape and tarp as the last time, we're still able to glean some information from the latest spy report from Brenda Priddy's ace spy photog Chris Doane. In addition to the expectation it'll be receiving the same 4.7-liter and 5.7-liter V8 engines and five- or six-speed automatic transmissions found in the 2007 Toyota Tundra, the Sequoia is expected to get fancy in the back of the pants. That's because the most important new feature in the new Tundra-derived "balled (and bloated) fist" SUV from ToMoCo will be an independent rear suspension to replace the solid live axle in the current Sequoia. That's right folks, this Toyota beast o' people-moving burden will now have a more advanced rear end than a Ford Mustang. [Edmunds Inside Line]
