2016 Toyota Sequoia

The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2016 Toyota Sequoia are both full-size truck-based sport utility vehicles. Both deliver serious hauling and towing capability, and both boast upscale and refined interiors. If you’re looking for a big SUV that can carry a big family and haul a large load of cargo or pull a trailer then these two are top options. Read on to see how they matchup, so you can make the smart decision about your next SUV.

Powertrains and Performance

You probably want power and capability, but who can argue with fuel economy? Take a look to see which one of these models delivers the best combination of performance:

  • The Toyota Sequoia comes standard with a 5.7L V8 that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The most efficient Sequoia gets rear-wheel drive and earns an EPA estimate of 13 mpg city/17 mpg highway. The Sequoia is rated at up to 7,400 pounds.
  • The Chevy Tahoe, on the other hand, uses a 5.3L V8 engine that generates 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Despite having slightly less power than the Sequoia, the Tahoe can tow more at 8,600 pounds maximum. The Tahoe also earns considerably better EPA estimates with up to 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway with rear-drive and 16 mpg/22 mpg highway with all-wheel drive based on EPA estimates.

When it comes to both fuel economy and capability, the Chevy Tahoe handily beats out the Toyota Sequoia.

Convenience and Comfort

While the Sequoia is technically bigger than the Tahoe, the Tahoe gives you more front head room, front leg room, rear hip room, and rear head room.

When it comes to convenience, you’ll find that the Tahoe also wins out. The Tahoe gets a standard parking assistance system—a very useful feature for a full-sized SUV—and that feature is not standard on the Sequoia. The Tahoe also gets the OnStar system with 4G LTE connection and in-car WiFi hotspot standard. That system delivers important features like automatic collision notification, enhanced roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle assistance. Those features aren’t available in the Sequoia.
