The 2008 Toyota Sequoia has been restyled, and stakes its claim as one of the largest vehicles around.

Size matters in the reviews read by TheCarConnection.com; many opened with comments on the Sequoia’s tremendous size. ForbesAutos says, “everything is big on this truck, from the headlamps and side mirrors to the exterior grab handles and interior switches.” The Tundra pickup donates its platform for the big SUV from Toyota; 2008’s version shares many of the Tundra’s styling cues, and ForbesAuto calls those details “brawny” and “imposing.” They add, “With its enormous chrome-clad prow, the Sequoia mimics the macho, don’t-mess-with-Texas look of the Tundra pickup.”

The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is all about big—from its big grille to its big, busy dash.

Interior styling for the 2008 Toyota Sequoia carries over from the Tundra, and it’s a source of controversy. Cars.com calls it “with its recessed gauges and sweeping silver-colored trim stretching from the instrument cluster down to the center console gear selector.” ForbesAutos feels that “you have to stretch to reach the stereo controls.” While Edmunds.com finds a “triumph of ergonomics, storage bins, and family-friendly conveniences” in the Toyota, 2008’s Sequoia has an “overwrought dash with questionable ergonomics,” according to Motor Trend.
