Editor's Overview

The 2016 Toyota Sequoia is a big SUV that delivers plenty of room for the family and has an outstanding reputation for reliability and high resale. Although not as sophisticated as the Chevy Suburban/Tahoe twins, nor as fuel-efficient as the Ford Expedition, the Sequoia nevertheless belongs at the top of anyone’s full-size SUV shopping list.

Best family vehicle ever!

I love this vehicle. We are a family of four and previously had a Ford escape and there just wasn't enough room. Love the space, how sleek it is, and it is the first vehicle that I have owned that my husband also loves! It has a DVD player in the back which is a big thumbs up for my kids!

My Toyota sequoia has a very comfortable ride.

My Toyota sequoia is a great vehicle. I bought it for family road trips and it does the job. It has a very smooth ride and is very comfortable. It has a third row which my kids really love because they can ride far in the back. I really have no complaints about my vehicle.

My car is in excellent condition and runs very smooth and comfortable.

It's a very comfortable car to drive. It's also easy to drive but uses up a good amount of gas but its a nice car either way. I do not regret buying it a good amount of people fit and we travel a lot on it and will last a while. So I would recommend this car to anyone.
