2016 Chevrolet Suburban vs. 2016 Toyota Sequoia
Buyers looking for a full-size traditional truck-based SUV might have fewer options than a decade ago, but those remaining are certainly well equipped to haul the whole family and a trailer. Two leading choices in this segment are the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban and the 2016 Toyota Sequoia. You can find out exactly how they compare below.
Power and Performance
Both of these vehicles pack burly V8 engines standard. The Sequoia uses a 5.7L V8 to generate 383 hp and 403 lb-ft of torque. The Chevrolet Suburban comes standard with a 5.3L V8 good for up to 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. While it’s clear that the Sequoia does make more power, what does it do with that muscle? The answer is not as much as the Suburban. Take a look at the fuel economy and towing figures for these two SUVs:
- Fuel Economy: The Toyota sequoia nets a poor 13 mpg city/17 mpg highway with rear-wheel drive in EPA estimates. The Chevrolet Suburban, with its considerably more modern engine is rated at 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway with rear-wheel drive. That advantage for the Suburban remains if you pick all-wheel drive.
- Towing: The Sequoia can tow a healthy amount at 7,400 pounds maximum. The Suburban still handily beats that figure, with a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,300 pounds when properly equipped.
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
The Suburban is simply covered by a better warranty. It’s backed by a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, while the Sequoia only gets a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Both vehicles come standard with 2-years/25,000-miles worth of included no-cost maintenance coverage.
