2008 Toyota Sequoia Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
I purchased the 2008 Platinum Sequoia for family and weekend road trips. I test drove the Escalade ESV, Suburban, and Expedition XL. I chose the Sequoia with very little deliberation. The ride is smooth and the options are top rate. I love the interior space, the only two complaints I have are the lack of chrome accents for a model labeled platinum and the navigation and radio system. The resolution on the nav system is poor and the text limitation on the radio is just ridiculous for a product from Toyota. I know the profit margins had to be huge, because they did not invest a lot of money to impress customers or be competitive with $150 Nav systems from Best Buy.
Power rear door, ride, interior storage and space.
The Platinum Sequoia lists at $61K+, it needs more high end features to distinguish from other Sequoias such as more wood grained interior features, more exterior chrome accents, and chrome wheels.
