Very Big SUV
By CanoeCrazy on
2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I lost room going from an Aerostar AWD extended van, but I gained ground clearance and an extra seat.
I canoe in Maine and need the ground clearance that the van could not deliver for the logging roads.
One problem is that the truck is so high that I have troble loading a canoe on the useless roof rack. I will buy a canoe trailer!
4WD and traction control are OK in snow, but the skid control doesn't do much.
This is a HIGH vehicle and the running boards help greatly getting in.
Auto climate control and heated outside mirrors.
Ability to drive in AWD on hard pavement.
A roof rack that be loaded with canoes/kayaks. When the back crossbar is far aft, there is still 2 feet to the back of the rear door.
I can't load a 65 lb canoe without scratching the paint.
Selectable 4WD with locked center differential in Hi or Low ratio and in any gear.
