2007 Toyota Sequoia Review

This review was written when the 2007 Toyota Sequoia was new.

The Sequoia delivers family-friendly, reliable transportation in a smooth-riding and spacious package. If you're in the market for an affordable large SUV, you should also consider the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition.

Reviewers largely agree that the 2007 Toyota Sequoia offers high value, quality and reliability at a reasonable price, along with good off-road capabilities and spacious seating for eight. First introduced in 2001 with a 2005 redesign, the 2007 Sequoia is a carryover that now comes standard with front-seat side air bags and side curtain air bags. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says, "If the price and politically incorrect mpg figures aren't turnoffs, its safety, comfort and passenger/cargo capacity make the Sequoia one of the top offerings in the full-size bracket."

But the majority of reviewers feel that, while the Sequoia is an excellent car, it's still not a great bargain. "Be prepared to pay a significant price for such mass and muscle," says the Detroit News. Despite that, Automobile.com says, "Although it may gouge the pocketbook more than some other mid-to-large size SUVs to buy and operate, when combined with Toyota's stellar reputation for reliability and strong resale value, the ... Sequoia is a definite safe bet for purchasers seeking a highly capable, premium SUV." IntelliChoice rates the base model's value as "excellent" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership, compared to other vehicles in its class.

The 2007 Toyota Sequoia is available in two trims: the base Sequoia SR5 and the Sequoia Limited.
