2008 Toyota Sequoia vs. Its Competition

2008 Toyota Sequoia Platinum
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford Expedition was redesigned a few years back with a more luxurious interior; it comes in standard or long-wheelbase editions.

The same is true of the Chevrolet Suburban, which in short form is known as the Tahoe.

The Nissan Armada comes with one wheelbase and one drivetrain, but its big V-8 makes the brassiest sound at speed.

Quick Specs
The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is a capable example of the full-size SUV--in a day where the full-size SUV makes less and less sense.
The workhorse 2009 Chevrolet Suburban is far from glamorous, but it gets the job done, in comfort.
Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
