I'd not think they'd build the Sequoia with any different drivetrain or suspension. Generally the full finished shell and extra seats of an SUV will weigh more than a pickup box. Therefore the payload capacity of an SUV is less. This puts tighter limits on hitch weight and therefore trailer size. The number differences aren't huge but that's a general trend. I'd suggest you spend time on the Toyota website if you want a solid answer.
There have been some threads with discussion and a few photos of the 2007 1/2 Tundra that will be rolling out of the brand new San Antonio plant next February or March. I haven't heard if they've released firm capacity numbers -- but they weren't revealed until the last minute with the redesigned F-150 and Nissan Titan introductions three years ago this month. The new Tundra is supposed to be a full 1/2-ton, matching the strong numbers of Detroit. I don't know if azflycaster is referring to the new models when he mentioned the 5.7L engine. Sounds like a reasonable expectation though.
