Toyota Sequoia

Toyota Sequoia 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Limited 4-door SUV 4WD Automatic
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. Blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning are available. Electronic connectivity includes Toyota's Entune touch-screen audio system.

2008 Redesign Year
Toyota Sequoia 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Limited/Platinum
Toyota's largest SUV was redesigned in 2008, again based on the Tundra pickup truck. Unlike the first generation Sequoia, this second generation goes toe to toe with other large SUV competitors when it comes to interior space and towing capacity. Spacious seating for eight is a highlight, with one of the few third-row seats that can comfortably fit three adults across. Potent power comes from the top engine choice, a 5.7-liter V8 that supplies brisk acceleration. At 15 mpg overall, fuel economy is respectable for its class, but still isn't great. Smaller and refined V8s are also available. Handling is clumsy and even though the ride was improved, it still feels like a truck to drive. Off-road capability is impressive. Controls are simple to use, but it's a long reach to some of the radio controls across the wide cabin. A long-overdue 2016 update brought more modern infotainment and available blind spot monitoring. Overall though, the Sequoia feels dated next to more modern competition.

Toyota Sequoia 2007 Trim Shown: 2007 Sport Utility
Based on the Tundra pickup, the big Sequoia SUV shares its refined 4.7-liter V8 powertrain. Spacious and capable, the Sequoia has a third-row seat that allows it to accommodate up to eight passengers. However, the Toyota isn't quite as roomy, nor can it tow as much as domestic full-sized competitors. Full-time 4WD is available, but it is a less sophisticated system than that found in Toyota's other large SUV, the Land Cruiser. Even though Toyotas are known for their refinement, the Sequoia has a relatively stiff ride. Handling is cumbersome, but the interior is well finished. Stability control became standard for 2004; it was previously optional.
