The Sequoia has many excellent added amenities to make for a great ride, but it is within the cabin space that the Sequoia truly shines.

Plenty of Cargo Room

The interior cargo capacity reaches an impressive 120.1 cubic feet, when all of the seats are folded flat. The optional power liftgate makes accessing your cargo space easier than ever, with the simple push of a button.

 

Power Reclining Third Row Seats

With the push of one button, the third row on the Platinum and Limited models, can either recline, or fold-flat. Whether your passengers want to kick back and relax, or you need extra cargo space - the Sequoia delivers.

 

Roof Rack

In case the 120.1 cubic feet of interior cargo space isn’t enough, the Sequoia comes with a standard roof rack, and optional cross bars, for added storage space.

2015 Sequoia Comes Out Ahead of the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

2015 Toyota Sequoia

Toyota created the Sequoia to stand out in the full-size SUV segment, and they accomplished that goal. Standing out ahead of the Chevrolet Tahoe, one of the most competitive vehicles in the full-size SUV segment. Featuring more power, more standard features, and more advanced safety technology, the Sequoia easily beats out the Chevy Tahoe.

 

The following compares the 2015 Toyota Sequoia with the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, as the base models equipped with four-wheel-drive.

 

  • Price - For the base model, the Toyota Sequoia starts at $47,620, while the Tahoe has a starting MSRP of $49,300. The Tahoe’s freight charge is more expensive than that of the Sequoia, further distancing the two price-wise.
  • Power and Performance - The base Tahoe is equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine, with 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Normally impressive numbers, but not when compared to Sequoia’s 5.7-liter V* with 381 HP and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. 
  • Maneuverability - The Chevrolet Tahoe has a larger turning radius than the Sequoia, which makes it harder to maneuver in and out of tight parking spots. The Tahoe is also slightly wider than the Sequoia, making it trickier to fit in a garage next to another vehicle.
  • Space - While both full-size SUVs offer the same amount of passenger seating, the Toyota Sequoia offers a lot more interior cargo capacity than the Tahoe. With the second and third rows folded flat, the Tahoe can only accommodate 94.7 cubic feet of cargo, while the Sequoia can pack an impressive 120.1 cubic feet of cargo. That is a big difference, and can mean the difference between packing what you need and want, or only what you need.
