2011 Toyota Sequoia vs. Its Competition

Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Chevrolet Tahoe and its near-twin, the GMC Yukon, are picks for fuel-efficiency and handling.

There's even a Hybrid version of the Tahoe and Yukon, with fuel-economy ratings of up to 21 mpg city, 22 highway.

The Ford Expedition was redesigned a few years back with a more luxurious interior, and it has perhaps the best ride of these large utes, along with a smooth powertrain, though its engines lag in strength.

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.

However, the Armada rates near the back of the pack for interior appointments; they feel a bit dated at this point.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2011 Toyota Sequoia offers good towing ability, powerful V-8 engines, and a macho, over-the-top look, though in most other respects its hard to make a practical case.
7.6
The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe is very comfortable, capable vehicle, built on tough, traditional building blocks; and especially in the sophisticated Tahoe Hybrid, it's no dinosaur.
7.4
For those who have to haul people and tow, the 2011 Ford Expedition provides truck toughness in a well-rounded wagon.
7.4
Rugged good looks and a strong powertrain make the 2011 Nissan Armada desirable, but compared to other large SUVs its lacking in most other respects.
