When I first looked at the new Sequoias I thought that they would drive like a monster, however, when I test drove it, it was so smooth and the transmission shifted without me even noticing it. You could tell that this vehicle was well engineered and geared towards people who want a large SUV but without the "truck like" feel to it. The Sequoia is driven primarily by my wife but I always find excuses to drive it on the weekends and we do all of our trips in it. Its a great vehicle and I strongly recommend it.
My favorite feature is the 5.7L engine, it's very powerful but sophisticated, along with the 6-speed auto transmission.
The front end styling looks a little bit like a cousin of the Dodge Ram, I would rather Toyota stay somewhat "vanilla" than go extreme to a look a like. Besides that, great SUV.
