Review: 2016 Toyota Sequoia Limited

15 December 2017, Neil Parkhi


The Sequoia is a unique off road Full Size SUV, there may be a better model than this, which is the Toyota Land Cruiser, but the Land Cruiser has the same features, but is more luxurious and comfortable, which is why the Sequoia’s price starts at about $45000, and the Land Cruiser’s price starts at over $80000. That is one significant price difference between the SUVs, and also Lexus’s versions which is the GX460 and the LX570 have extremely high prices as well. All four of the SUVs come standard with Rear Wheel Drive, while all vehicles are available in All Wheel Drive for those extra off road capabilities, and All Wheel Drive is more safe in any car compared to a Rear or Front Wheel Drive Car. If you are to go off roading, it is fun to explore all of the things in the trail while inside the car, and also with all of these unique features, you are able to ride in the vehicle comfortably, which is incredible for a Toyota, but for extra comfort, the Lexus is available too.


In terms of capabilities, the Sequoia is most definitely a vehicle I would highly recommend to people. The Sequoia is a really good SUV. It not only has good towing capabilities, but also has very good ride comfort. It is an SUV that is loaded with features, and it also has nice and comfortable leather seats in the Limited trim.
