The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2015 Toyota Sequoia might look similar at first glance: they’re both full-size, three-row truck based SUVs. That’s about where the similarities stop, however. There are some important differences that you should consider when you’re planning to upgrade to a new SUV for your family. Read on to find out more!

Powertrains and Performance

When you’re buying a full size SUV, you want power to haul heavy cargo and fuel efficiency so that you’re not burning money when you head out on a long drive. So how do these two vehicles compare? The Sequoia is equipped with a 5.7L V8 that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque that goes to the rear wheels or all-wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sequoia is rated at 13 mpg city/17 mpg highway with all-wheel drive, and can tow up to 7,400 pounds.

The Tahoe, on the other hand, uses a 5.3L V8 engine that makes 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Like the Sequoia, it can be had in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with a six-speed automatic in both. The Tahoe can actually tow more than the Sequoia, with a maximum rating of 8,600 pounds, and it gets significantly better gas mileage 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.

It’s clear that the Tahoe offers more performance, capacity, and fuel economy than the Sequoia.

Convenience and Comfort

The differences don’t stop under the hood. The Chevy Tahoe comes with more warranty coverage—100,000 miles of powertrain coverage vs. 60,000 miles in the Sequoia—and it also comes with more roadside assistance coverage as well. There’s also more front and rear headroom in the Tahoe. Plus, with the Tahoe, you get the latest OnStar telematics system that includes the new OnStar 4G LTE wireless connection with in-car WiFi hotspot.
