Used Car: 2010 Toyota Sequoia Review
The 2010 Toyota Sequoia has a comfortable interior, good driving dynamics, a solid reliability score and is generally well-constructed. As a result, the Sequoia is a solid choice for anyone shopping for a used 2010 large SUV.
The 2010 Toyota Sequoia is ranked:
Critics largely liked the 2010 Sequoia when it was new. Although a few had difficulty reaching some of the controls on the center stack, the interior was generally lauded for its comfort and high level of fit and finish. The Sequoia also garnered praise for its choice of strong engines and fairly good handling. A strong reliability score means the Sequoia will likely be less expensive to maintain than many rival SUVs.
The base 2010 Sequoia comes with a 4.6-liter V8, though most reviewers tested models equipped with the more powerful 5.7-liter V8. Test drivers said the available engine was more than adequate to move the Sequoia, and with the larger V8, the Sequoia can tow up to 10,000 pounds, which is better than even the heavy-duty 2010 Chevrolet Suburban. Fuel economy is the same with either engine. With rear-wheel drive, the Sequoia achieves 14/19 mpg city/highway, while 4x4 models get 13/18 mpg. The Sequoia has up to 120.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is class-competitive.
Standard equipment on the Sequoia includes Bluetooth, a power-retractable rear window, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power sunroof and an eight-speaker stereo with satellite radio and a USB port. Higher trim levels add features like a power liftgate, leather seating, a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation and a backup camera. The 2010 Sequoia saw few changes since its 2008 redesign, so you might save money by shopping for an older model.
Other Cars to Consider
If you’re interested in the Sequoia, you may also like the 2010 Ford Expedition. Like the Sequoia, the Expedition has a vast interior with comfortable seats. Unlike the Sequoia, the Expedition is also available with an extended wheelbase that expands cargo space behind the third row.
Another worthy alternative to consider is the 2010 GMC Yukon. The Yukon also drew high marks from reviewers for its comfortable and well-made interior, as well as favorable driving dynamics. Its fuel economy estimates, at 15/21 mpg city/highway, are some of the best in the class, excluding hybrid models. The Yukon’s main drawback is that its third-row seats must be removed to expand its cargo-carrying capacity, unlike the Sequoia’s fold-flat third row.
