Expert Quotes:

14 mpg city, 20 highway (4.6-liter 2WD); 14/19 (4.6 4WD); 14/18 (5.7 2WD); 13/18 (5.7 4WD); 12/17 (5.7 4WD flex-fuel)
U.S. EPA





With a curb weight approaching 6,000 pounds and only a pair of gas-powered V-8 engines to choose from, the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is hardly what you would call fuel-efficient.

The most frugal model, if you can call it that, is the base SR5 version equipped with a 4.6-liter V-8 and rear-wheel drive. Its official EPA gas mileage rating is 14/20 mpg city/highway and 16 mpg combined. If you opt for the Sequoia's 5.7-liter V-8 option and all-wheel drive, you’ll see gas mileage drop to 13/17 mpg city/highway and 12 mpg combined.

Note, the bigger V-8 is E85 flex-fuel capable, but if you want to be really environmentally conscious, while still having most of the Sequoia’s capability, GM's full-size SUVs, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Sierra, do offer a hybrid option, and Mercedes-Benz’s GL Class can be ordered with a clean diesel.

Conclusion

There’s no hiding the fact that the 2012 Toyota Sequoia is a gas-guzzler, so if fuel bills or the environment are your primary concern you may want to look elsewhere.

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.
