The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Old-school, mostly in the right ways, the Chevrolet Suburban's survived the big-SUV shakeout for a reason. The 2012 Toyota Sequoia delivers traditional truck toughness, towing ability, and strong V-8 engines—plus the macho look to go with it.
