Editor's Overview

The 2013 Toyota Sequoia offers full-size room for eight, a powerful V8 engine, and the quality and reliability that have become the hallmark of Toyota trucks and SUVs. Sure, the Sequoia costs a bit more than the competition, but with its stellar resale value, you'll make the difference up and more come trade-in time.

The quality of the mechanics and how it will last forever

Interior design is nice with captain chairs. Leather interior. Miss the extra cargo space that I had in my 2005 sequoia. Quality engine that is known to last

- Eliza A

Toyota Sequoia is a very good and reliable vehicle.

We haven't had any problems. We have 100k miles on it. It is very reliable. It could have better gas mileage though. I like the split middle row seats.

- Dana L

Comfortable ride on very long trips. Has a good towing package.

My vehicle rides very smooth, very reliable, has a reverse camera, cloth seats and is very comfortable. The engine is sound and very powerful.
