2009 Toyota Sequoia vs. Its Competition

2008 Toyota Sequoia

For now, shoppers in this class have a lot to celebrate, with some really good vehicles that dealers are, in most cases, heavily discounting to get off the lots.

The Chevrolet Tahoe was recently redesigned and reigns supreme, with its long-wheelbase version, the Suburban, in this segment, and its V-8 engines are both responsive and fuel-efficient.

The Ford Expedition was redesigned a few years back with a more luxurious interior; it comes in standard or long-wheelbase editions, and stands out for having a good ride and capable handling even though its power ratings lag.

The Nissan Armada comes with one wheelbase and one engine, but its big V-8 makes the brassiest sound at speed, and its styling is still like no other.
