2015 Toyota Sequoia vs Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Suburban, and Chevrolet Tahoe

Sequoia appeals to family-oriented consumers who need to accommodate multiple passengers as well as their active pursuits. These customers' priorities are passenger room, cargo room and towing capability, which just happen to be Sequoia's strengths. Its competition stems from Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition. A carryover for 2015, Sequoia still offers customers its impressive balance of rugged capabilities, refined interior and suburban utility. Compared to the competition, Sequoia boldly stands out as much more than a utilitarian ride - it's an adventure waiting to happen. The Toyota Sequoia isn't always the lowest-priced SUV, but with its huge range of features and capabilities, including Entune Audio, it's usually a better value. In fact, many Sequoia standard features are extra-cost options on competitors.
