Versus the Sequoia, GM's full-size SUVs, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon—as well as their extended-length siblings, the Suburban and Yukon XL—are among the best alternatives because of their superior gas mileage and better handling.
Particularly of interest are the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid and GMC Yukon Hybrid models, which offer up to 21 mpg city, 22 highway.
The Ford Expedition has a more luxurious interior than the Sequoia and is perhaps the best-riding of these full-size SUVs; its powertrain, while smooth, isn't as strong as those in rival models, though.
The Nissan Armada is geared toward families who need the towing ability, and it comes in only one wheelbase and one engine, but its style still stands out and the big V-8 is still near the head of the pack (though it's among the worst for fuel economy).
The Nissan's interior feels a bit dated at this point, too.
