2019 Toyota Sequoia review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Toyota Sequoia?

The 2019 Toyota Sequoia is a full-size SUV that can seat up to eight people in three rows. It’s powered by a standard 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine that pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the Sequoia competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Nissan Armada and Ford Expedition.

What’s New on the 2019 Toyota Sequoia?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota Sequoia Are Most Important?

The Sequoia uses a truck-based platform and can tow up to 7,400 pounds when properly equipped. Standard convenience features include front and rear parking sensors, tri-zone automatic air conditioning, a power moonroof and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Options include a power liftgate, power-operated third row, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, rear sunshades and a rear-seat entertainment system.

Standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota Sequoia?

We like the Sequoia’s powerful V-8 drivetrain, and it offers a lot of value, but this SUV is showing its age — as its last-place finish in our Full-Size SUV Challenge reflects. If you’re shopping this class, the Tahoe and Expedition are worth a look before making your decision.

Excellent vehicle

Got this for the towing capabilities. Love it for the room and comfort. Not thrilled that it is an old exterior design, but it is a fabulous vehicle. Very safe... Like driving a tank.
