2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
We chose the 2008 Sequoia because of the fold-flat 3rd row seating and the reliability of Toyota. The 4WD and sport-shift were invaluable on our recent trip to CO, especially during the snow storm at Wolf Creek Pass and on the many unimproved back roads. The 5.7L V8 is remarkably powerful and smooth. The headrest DVD system is great. Very roomy and very comfortable and very quiet, small turning radius, feels safe and solid. We average 16.6 mpg daily driving. I now look forward to driving each day. I'm surprised there isn't more buzz about this car - it is fabulous!
5.7L V8 engine, 3 zone climate control (finally an end to the temperature wars), massive center console (ladies, this is the perfect place for your handbag - it's easily accessible and won't dump out on the floor).
Ditch the "table" on the back of the passenger seat and give us a pocket instead (SR5 with leather seat upgrade).
