The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. The 2017 Toyota Sequoia
The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2017 Toyota Sequoia are both large traditional truck-based sport utility vehicles. Either one of these models will provide the kind of capability and performance that most drivers in the Calumet City area want. Despite the similarities, there are some key differences between these two models. Take a look at how they matchup below.
Powertrains and Performance
These two models both get V8 power, but they are far from equals when it comes to performance and efficiency. Take a look at the specifications:
- The Toyota Sequoia gets a 5.7L V8 makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with rear-wheel drive and standard automatic transmission, the Sequoia earns an EPA estimate of 13 mpg city/17 mpg highway. The Sequoia is rated at up to 7,400 pounds
- The Chevy Tahoe uses a 5.3L V8 engine that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The Tahoe also earns considerably better EPA estimate at 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway with rear-drive, and 16 mpg/22 mpg highway with all-wheel drive based on EPA estimates. The Tahoe can tow up to 8,600 pounds.
It’s clear that the Toyota can’t keep up with the Tahoe when it comes to towing or efficiency.
Convenience and Comfort
While the Sequoia is bigger on the outside than the Tahoe, the Tahoe gives you more front head room, front leg room, rear hip room, and rear head room, despite the smaller exterior size. The Tahoe also offers more cargo space with a maximum of 120.1 cubic feet with the second and third row folded down, while the Sequoia has room for up to 94.7 cubic feet of cargo.
