ABS and ESC standard. Side and head protection air bags available, standard from 2008.
Based on Toyota's Tundra pickup, the Sequoia is a big brute of a truck-based SUV, but a good one. Its main attributes are an impressively smooth, punchy powertrain; a vast, comfortable interior; and impressive towing and off-road capability. It rides better than the old Sequoia but still feels truckish, and handling is clumsy. Fuel economy is respectable for its class, but overall it isn't great.
The Sequoia received a number of updates for 2016, including available blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. Electronic connectivity was also updated, with Toyota's Entune touch-screen audio system standard.
