It is pretty similar to the famous Toyota Tundra, in terms of architecture; however, it stands out when it comes to drive and comfort on the road. To make things more comfortable, drivers can add the optional air suspension. Sequoia may lack in other departments, but with no noise inside the cabin, it easily earns 5 stars for comfort,
You might be wondering about the power the 2015 Sequoia has to offer.

Despite being heavily built, Sequoia is brisk. The vehicle will certainly come as a surprise off road.
There are absolutely no doubts about the Sequoia’s capabilities but there are some things that the company really needs to work on. The vehicle hasn’t received any changes in design for quite some time now and it is actually beginning to bother a lot of buyers. Also, the cabin isn’t all that great, it feels old and controls are far from driver’s reach. Most of its competitors have gone ahead in this department and it’s about time Toyota made some changes with Sequoia too.
As far as the engine is concerned, the 2015 TOYOTA Sequoia comes with a 5.7-L V8 as standard, which is capable of producing up to 381 HP and 401 lb-ft. of torque. The standard transmission offered with the vehicle is a six-speed automatic. Sequoia also comes standard with a rear-wheel-drive, but can be converted to optional four-wheel-drive.
During the performance test, Sequoia hit the 60-mpg from a standstill in less than 7 seconds, which is pretty impressive for its class.
As with most of full-size SUVs, the fuel economy isn’t all that impressive. Sequoia, with rear-wheel-drive, returns 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. And with four-wheel drive, it returns 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway, making a combined figure of 14 mpg.
The towing capacity varies with the trim levels, offering a minimum of 7100 and maximum of 7400 pounds.
Overall the 2015 TOYOTA Sequoia is a vehicle worth spending money on. Like any vehicle in the market, it has its drawbacks, but not too major.
