The 2011 Toyota Sequoia is big and burly, to the point of being overstyled. Can it be taken seriously?

Expert Quotes:

the impression most people get when seeing the...Toyota Sequoia for the first time is that it's huge.
Road & Track

officially graduated from "almost full-size" to "wow, that's big" status

so big that keeping the Sequoia name seems slightly modest
Car and Driver

From the outside, the 2011 Toyota Sequoia looks like it's on steroids. It's almost cartoonishly musclebound with its huge, imposing chrome grille, tall hood and flanks, and details like its flared fenders, chunky door handles, chromed mirrors, and rippled sheetmetal. The Sequoia is as big as rivals like the Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Tahoe, or Nissan Armada, and it's as if Toyota is struggling to look even bigger with this design.

Inside, a matte-metallic plastic trim flows down from the gauge area and covers part of the center console, which some might find a bit odd or overwrought. That aside, the dash is very functional, with a very wide, multicompartment center console and chunky design incorporating simple, large controls and displays.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
