2014 Toyota Sequoia vs. Its Competition

2014 Toyota Sequoia
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Toyota Sequoia is a vast vehicle with superb towing capacity--specs that drive it into a niche with the other remaining full-size SUVs.

That includes the Ford Expedition, GMC Yukon/Chevy Tahoe, and to a lesser extent the Dodge Durango, along with the Nissan Armada.

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.

GM's pair offer stronger V-8s, and for more bling, there's always the Escalade.

The GM and Ford utes are offered in even longer models that may be a better, roomier pick if you intend to carry a large family, or many passengers.

The Nissan Armada is the worst of the bunch for fuel economy, but it has a simplified (and affordable) presentation that's geared toward families who need the towing ability; on the down side, its interior is feeling quite dated now.

Those who want more of an upscale crossover look and feel, but with some level of sturdy truck ability, should also check out the Dodge Durango, which offers one of the most opulent, refined interiors in this class.

It's slightly smaller, too.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2014 Toyota Sequoia has room for eight and strong V-8 towing capacity, but it's pretty thirsty and difficult to maneuver to drive every day.
7.4
The rugged, honest Chevy Tahoe doesn't exactly lack for luxury, but it's a more pragmatic choice for those who don't really need the luxury layers applied to Yukons, Escalades, or GLs.
8.4
The 2014 Dodge Durango is a great family hauler, and a top-notch utility infielder when you need extra brawn—made better this year with some important upgrades.
7.4
It hasn't been brought up to date like the company's pickup trucks, but the Ford Expedition has one of the best cabins and designs among the biggest SUVs.
7.6
Full-size SUVs still have a niche in the world, and the GMC Yukon is one of the best for towing and hauling it all.
7.4
The 2014 Nissan Armada has grown old in a segment that has improved its technology, safety, features and fuel economy.
