2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
The new Sequoia is a great SUV. I used to be a GM truck guy, but had so many reliability and customer service problems that I finally conducted a fair assessment of the large SUVs available and the Sequoia came out on top. It handles great (not like the 5,900 pound SUV that it is), looks great, and the time is right to buy.
The 5.7L V8 is well designed with lots of power on tap. The overall interior are spacious. The back up camera keeps you in check.
Fuel economy, although it is not bad. Maybe an active fuel management system to shut down cylinders. The option packages are annoying, I basically could not get the navigation system on my SR5, but I could get everything else to have a fully decked out SR5 for a lot less than a Limited.
