2008 Toyota Sequoia Road Test

The eight-seat Sequoia is sized between the smallest and largest full-size SUVs — bigger than the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition but not as large and accommodating as the Suburban (basically a stretched Tahoe) or extended Expedition EL. Toyota doesn't always get it right the first time, but seldom does the company give up until it's challenging or exceeding the class leaders — think Camry, RAV4 and Sienna. You can now add to that list the second-generation Sequoia — a roomy, refined truck that goes toe-to-toe with the Chevys and Fords.

It does still have a few shortcomings, including inconsistent cabin quality and an anomaly that might or might not be limited to my test car, involving noise at highway speeds. Read on.

Exterior & Styling
Typical of its class, the Sequoia is bold in design, with a prominent grille and front bumper. The three trim levels include SR5, Limited and Platinum. The SR5 has body-colored bumpers, side mirrors, moldings and door handles, and the grille is black with a chrome surround. The standard alloy wheels are 18 inches in diameter. My Limited test vehicle added a chrome grille, chrome retractable side mirrors, fog lamps, running boards and a roof rack. The Platinum's standard wheels are 20-inchers.

The SR5 can add the running boards, fog lamps and a rear spoiler as options. The Limited can upgrade to the spoiler and 20-inch wheels. The Platinum can have white pearl paint.
