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.
