Full-Size SUV With Heavy-Duty Towing Capability

Whether your are towing horses (as we do here), towing boats, or whatever up to five tons, the Sequoia can get the job done in style, AND at an affordable price point. We took the Sequoia out to the farm and hauled a 3-horse trailer around in the muck with no problems whatsovever. And in terms of fuel ecomony, our highway driving test (22.2 MPG) beat the EPA estimate by more than 23%.
