The big, eight-passenger Sequoia has a strong and refined 5.7-liter V8 paired to a six-speed automatic. That combination returned 15 mpg overall in our tests. Rear- and selectable, full-time four-wheel drive are available. The ride is firm, and handling is clumsy but secure. The independent rear suspension allows the third-row seat to fold flat into a well. It's a high step-in to get into the cabin, but once inside passengers will find the interior to be very roomy. Updates for 2016 include available blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. Electronic connectivity is also updated, with Toyota's Entune touch-screen audio system standard. Reliability has been well above average, but the Sequoia scores too low for us to recommend it.
