The new Toyota Sequoia is a great vehicle-pure and simple. While it does offer 4 wheel drive, it wasn’t necessarily made for harsh off road conditions- and we are fine with that. It is first and foremost a family mover, however the way in which it does this is stylish, very comfortable and full of utility.
The Toyota Sequoia is a winner. This year’s model is much bigger in all respects and for those that are familiar with the Toyota Tundra, the Sequoia has definitely taken some styling cues from this vehicle. What you get is a very smartly engineered vehicle that has enough power for the road and a very comfortable interior that makes it easy to transport the family and if you love to shop plenty of bounty. Everything about this vehicle is engineered correctly. We have no faults with practically anything. It does what it sets out to do and we think most families will generally be pleased.
