About the Toyota Sequoia

Vehicle Summary

When you're in the market for a larger SUV that offers seating for up to eight passengers, you might think your options are limited. However, the Toyota Sequoia is one of just a few SUVs for sale in its class that offers a standard third row and seating for seven or eight passengers (depending on the specific seating configuration you choose). Meanwhile, it doesn't disappoint from a power standpoint with its standard V8 engine in recent model years.

The Toyota Sequoia has been in its second generation of production since 2007 and has seen some nice improvements in recent years, including a new TRD Sport trim in 2018. If you're looking for an SUV that offers both space and power, the Sequoia is worth checking out.

Q: Is Toyota still making the Sequoia?

A: Yes, the Toyota Sequoia has been in continuous production since it was introduced for sale in 2000.

Q: What year did the Toyota Sequoia body style change?

A: For the introduction of its second generation in 2007, the Toyota Sequoia saw a significant body styling change that featured a boxed frame and independent rear suspension.

Q: What kind of mileage does the Toyota Sequoia get?

A: Fuel economy for the Toyota Sequoia varies depending on model year, trim, and engine. However, for the 2019 Sequoia base trim with 5.7L engine, automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive, the combined EPA estimate is 14 mpg.1

Q: Is the Toyota Sequoia full-time four-wheel drive?

A: Two-wheel drive is standard on all recent model year trims of the Toyota Sequoia, though four-wheel drive is an optional upgrade. It is important to note that traditional four-wheel drive is not the same as full-time four-wheel drive. The Sequoia's four-wheel drive system is full-time, which means the vehicle operates with power from all four wheels indefinitely rather than transferring power as required (as would be the case in an all-wheel drive vehicle).

Toyota Sequoia vs. Other SUVs

How does the Toyota Sequoia stack up against similar SUVs in its class? 

Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is a pick-up truck, so the body styling is quite different from that of the Sequoia's SUV styling. Both come standard with a V8 engine in the most recent model years, though the Sequoia offers significantly more seating capacity. Depending on the seating configuration, you can fit up to eight people in the Sequoia, compared to a maximum of six passengers in the Tundra. Both vehicles are available with optional four-wheel drive (2018-newer models).

From a fuel economy standpoint, EPA-estimated ratings are similar. The 2018 Tundra with four-wheel drive and standard 4.6L, V8 engine base trim gets an estimated 15 mpg combined, compared to 14 mpg for the 2018 Sequoia base trim and 5.7L engine.1

Chevrolet Tahoe

The Chevy Tahoe is another large SUV that, like the Sequoia, comes with a standard V8 engine in its 2018 model year. The Tahoe offers a little more seating, with a maximum capacity of up to nine people (compared to eight for the Sequoia). However, it doesn't come with as many trim offerings (three in the 2018 model year compared to four for the 2018 Sequoia) and might be a bit tough to maneuver in smaller urban spaces due to its larger size.

Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner is another large SUV offering from Toyota, with seating capacity of up to seven. However, a third row of seating does not come standard in the 2018 4Runner like it does in the Sequoia, so you'll need to upgrade your trim if you want seating for more than five passengers. Like the Sequoia, the 2018 4Runner is available in both two- and four-wheel drive configurations.

Reviews for Toyota Sequoia

Overall Rating

4.6 out of 5 (25 reviews)

Superb Land Yacht!

While thirsty, this beast will handle anything you want to throw at it in luxury and comfort. We have dogs and this vehicle has been amazing for it's spaciousness and ability to handle multiple projects around the property. There is one glaring error though, in the back when you fold down all the seats there is a spot between the two captain's chairs that's just a pit of despair. dogs get lost down there etc. No great aftermarket solution either.


  • Interior Space: Incredible climate controlled volume of space.
  • Ride and Handling: handles like a luxury sedan.


  • Cargo Space: See sarlac pit reference in the review.
  • Fuel Economy: yeah, no suprise, a 5.7L v8 is gonna be thirsty.

Great Mom Car with Power

The car has plenty of room with lots of storage space. You will never find yourself in a place where you wish you had a different car. Its elegant for date nights out but rough enough for camping trips.


  • Power: For its size, it has a ton of power and maintains great highway speeds.
  • Reliability: I can take this car anywhere and I never have to worry about being stranded.
  • Interior Space: Second row slides back giving more leg room & the third row reclines allowing for a comfortable ride no matter how tall.


  • Fuel Economy: Not the best, but when you want the space and power, it can't be beat.

- Amy Manchester, 2014 Toyota Sequoia

Great car at a great price. Even greater experience because of the sales person, John Prado.

The car is great, and the price was good compared to mileage, condition etc.. The decisive point for choosing CarMax though, is the effort of the sales rep, John Prado. He went out of his way to make it right, and even travelled to my house in his free time to deliver a piece to the trunk, that was missing and needed to be replaced. Because of him and the efficiency of the sales process I will continue to recommend Carmax.

They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
