2017 Toyota Sequoia vs. Its Competition

2017 Toyota Sequoia
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The segment leader has been the Chevrolet Tahoe for as long as we can remember, and it is easy to see why.

A strong V-8, comfortable ride quality, and a great interior help it feel a class above—things we can say about its GMC Yukon twin as well.

The Nissan Armada is new for 2017, but it is simply a dressed-down version of the Infiniti QX80.

Then again, that's not a bad thing.

Ford gave its Expedition a nice twin-turbo V-6 a couple of years ago, and it feels fresher than its looks might suggest.

If you don't need quite as much space as the Sequoia but want a V-8, the Dodge Durango is an excellent choice thanks to its brawny style and car-like handling.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Toyota Sequoia hasn't kept up with the times, even for a body-on-frame SUV. Look closely at the competition.
The 2017 Chevy Tahoe delivers almost all the towing and hauling capacity of a full-size truck, and seating for up to nine.
The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover—but crash test scores are a dull spot.
Old school is in session: The 2017 Ford Expedition teaches a few lessons to today's crossover SUVs with twin-turbo power, luxury-truck touches, and big towing and hauling numbers.
If you've got a lot to haul, the GMC Yukon range is one of the best ways to do it. But if not, consider a crossover that will use much less fuel and be better to drive.
After rotting on the vine for years, the 2017 Nissan Armada's redesign brings it upscale and makes it competitive with its recently updated truck-based full-size SUV rivals.
