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 has been updated over the years, including special editions like the TRD Pro and Nightshade Edition models , as well as improvements to electronic connectivity and touch-screen infotainment systems.
All versions get the Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) as standard equipment on all trim lines. TSS-P includes forward collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with lane keeping assistance, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic warning.
