The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Toyota Sequoia delivers traditional truck toughness, towing ability, and strong V-8 engines—plus the macho look to go with it. The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe is no longer fresh-faced, but it remains one of the best bets for those needing tough, true truck capability and plenty of passenger space.
