The Toyota Sequoia is at heart a truck with its towing capabilities and ability to carry cargo. It can carry up to eight people, but isn’t the best urban people mover. However, it isn’t bad for family road trips and is nearly the same size as a Ford Expedition, and slightly larger than a Chevrolet Tahoe. The Sequoia also maintains Toyota’s good name is reliability, customer service and fit/finish. Perhaps its only weakness is that it doesn’t come in many different trims and only one engine is available.

Performance and HandlingEdit

File:Sequoia engine.jpg

The Toyota Sequoia is satisfyingly quick and easy to drive on the road. Its V8 provides ready torque at your command and can get you out of any worrisome situations while driving. The brake pedal can feel a bit soft at times, however the sophisticated ABS does a good job of stopping the large SUV. Steering is rather uneventful as this is no sports car, but maneuvering the Sequoia through tight confines proves difficult because of it’s large 42.3 foot turning radius.

The suspension does a good job of smoothing out any ride with double wishbones up front and a live rear axle in back. A good amount of body roll through corners is not surprising for such a large vehicle. Exceed the modest grip of its tires or jump out of the throttle in a corner, and the stability control will quickly kick in to bring the Sequoia back into line. Off road, with its large ground clearance, beefy skidplates, and optional height adjustable suspension with rear leveling makes it decently off-road capable.
