2015 Sequoia

2016 Toyota Sequoia

Pros: Muscular 5.7-liter V8 engine, vast passenger- and cargo space despite being one of the smaller vehicles in the class; fine build quality

Cons: Fuel economy; wallowing handling; dashboard layout puts climate and audio controls out of easy reach

CG Says: The 2016 Toyota Sequoia gains an upgraded audio system with Siri Eyes-Free Mode capability. Blind-spot alert is newly available on Limited. Otherwise, Sequoia is unchanged. Sequoia stacks up well against its rivals. We appreciate its strong engine, comfortable seating, large cargo hold, and surprising maneuverability. Less exciting are this Toyota’s dashboard layout, wallowing handling, and recalcitrant transmission. The most appealing models are the SR5 and Limited. While the Platinum offers some nice exclusive features, they’re not numerous enough to offset its substantial price premium.
