It seems like forever since body-on-frame SUVs ruled the automotive landscape, but there's still a sizable amount of high-profit share up for grabs, even with gas at well over $3 per gallon. With that in mind, Toyota is planning another crack at the large and in charge Sequoia.

Brenda Priddy's crew got a couple of well disguised spy shots of the Sequoia on public streets, but the massive amounts of dirt adorning the camo tells us that Toyota's future big ute may have actually been tested off-road. The Sequoia is based off the same platform as the Tundra, and the two trucks will share Toyota's awesome new 5.7L, 381 HP engine. The 4.7L V8 should also be available, along with five- and six-speed automatics. Expect the Sequoia to hit show rooms in early '08.

Toyota may be on top of its game when it comes to fuel efficient transportation, but even the boys and girls from Aichi Japan have trouble saying no to a rolling profit waiting to happen.
