Editor's Overview

As full-size SUVs go, the 2015 Toyota Sequoia is one of the most dependable and capable around. While it is true that Toyota’s big SUV isn’t as modern as the Chevy Suburban/Tahoe twins, nor is its fuel economy as good as the Ford Expedition, it remains firmly committed to the features and abilities that matter most to SUV buyers.

The better, good, and the ugly

My vehicle drives very smoothly for being such a large SUV. It is very reliable and comfortable for a guy my size, and has all the standard features any modern 21st century car would have. The only issue with it is the incredibly high gas consumption, it seems like I am filling up on gas twice a week.

The best thing about this car is the cargo/passenger space, and the comfort. You could drive forever in this car and it would still be a comfy ride. I wish that it got better gas mileage. There are other SUV choice similar in size with better gas mileage, but I like toyotas the best!

The interior is very comfortable and roomy and the cargo space is exceptional.

It has a very large interior and cargo room. It drives comfortably and has had no technical or mechanical issues to date. This is actually the second Sequoia I've owned. The first I purchased in 2003. It's a great family car and so feel safe in it.
