2018 Toyota Sequoia

The Sequoia is the automaker’s large SUV, which is built on the same platform as Toyota’s large full size pickup truck, the Tundra. It also shares the same powertrain as the Tundra.

The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is one of the most affordable vehicles in the class, boasts more passenger and cargo capacity than rivals, and has a powerful engine. However, it can’t compete with others in fuel efficiency, and its cabin is long overdue for an update.

For 2018, the Sequoia sees styling updates inside and out, newly standard active safety features, and a new TRD Sport model with more aggressive styling.

MSRP: From $48,300
MPG: 13 city / 17 highway
Towing capacity: 7,000 to 7,400 lbs
Engine: 5.7 L V8
Horsepower: 381 hp

Pros:
Tons of space for people and cargo.
Controls are easy to use
Powerful engine
Great safety package

Cons:
Need around view camera
Key start is not great for family – push button would be best
Auto start would be a plus for families
Outdated infotainment

Competes with:
Nissan Armada
GMC Yukon

This Toyota is worth a look, but you should definitely comparison shop before you buy.
