Meet Simba: Expedition Overland’s 2023 Toyota Sequoia Limited – The Ultimate Overlanding Rig

If you’re an overlanding enthusiast or simply someone who loves exploring the great outdoors, you’ll appreciate the new 2023 Toyota Sequoia Limited HYBRID i-FORCE MAX. Meet Simba, the latest addition to Expedition Overland’s impressive fleet of off-road vehicles that debuted at this past SEMA Show. This all-new SUV is more powerful, efficient, and innovative than its predecessors, making it the perfect choice for your next overlanding adventure.

Expedition Overland is a video series produced by Hiline Productions that follows a team of adventurers and their outfitted vehicles through some of the world’s most remote places. Founded in 2010, owners Clay Croft and Rachelle Croft lead a team of “ordinary people doing extraordinary things.” The production showcases the adventures, struggles, and unique people and places they meet along the way. The show is filmed by adventurers and professional cinematographers who excel at telling a compelling story through documentary-style episodes. Their approach is authentic, professional, helpful, and always family-friendly. The Crofts even include their three sons, Cyrus, Ryder, and Eli on adventures when possible, which cultivates a spirit of family adventure and a love of the outdoors.

Simba boasts a HYBRID i-FORCE MAX 3.5L Twin-Turbo V6 Engine that delivers a staggering 437 horsepower and 583 lb.-ft. of torque, coupled with a 10-speed ECT-i transmission. This exceptional powertrain provides more performance and capability than ever before, enabling X Overland to push its boundaries even further. With improved fuel economy, they can stay on the road longer and explore more of the great outdoors.

But that’s not all. X Overland has taken Simba to the next level by outfitting it with ICON Suspension, 35” General Grabber X3 tires, and CBI Armor on every vulnerable corner. These enhancements provide improved traction, control, and durability, making Simba the ultimate overlanding rig.

Simba also comes equipped with a host of Toyota’s innovative technologies, including CRAWL control, Multi-Terrain Select, and a 14” touchscreen display that can be paired with the OnX Offroad app for unprecedented navigation capabilities. With these features, they can confidently navigate even the most challenging terrains.

Inside, the X Overland crew loves the room provided by Toyota’s spacious cab and the support of Sequoia Limited’s 8-way power-adjustable seats. Simba is built to comfortably carry and sleep three people as well as transport the soft goods and gear for the whole crew of seven on the expedition. The addition of Alu-Cab Gen 3-R Hard Shell Roof Top Tent makes it the perfect sleep system for off-road adventures. It’s engineered to thrive in extreme environments, ensuring that you’ll stay warm, dry, and comfortable no matter where you go. Features like these allow their production team to stay comfortable and thrive while on the move!

Overall, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia Limited HYBRID i-FORCE MAX is the perfect rig for overlanding enthusiasts who want a powerful, efficient, and reliable SUV that can handle anything the great outdoors can throw at it. And with X Overland’s enhancements, Simba is ready to take on any challenge they can imagine.
