Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Ford has made a few tweaks to its mid-size crossover for 2021, such as making heated seats standard on the XLT, offering a heated steering wheel as an optional feature on that model, and including an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat on the Limited, ST, and Platinum models. A Sport Appearance package is now available on the XLT trim, and it includes 20-inch aluminum wheels that are coated in Carbonized Gray paint.

Pros
Smooth and controlled ride,
cargo friendly interior design,
comfortable front seats.

Cons
Third row space is tight,
plasticky interior bits,
most desirable models are pricey.

The 2020 Sequoia lineup receives several updates. The biggest addition is the new off-road-ready TRD Pro model that's outfitted with a lifted suspension and other add-ons to conquer unruly roads and trails. Also showcased on other Toyota products such as the Tacoma pickup truck and the 4Runner SUV, the TRD-tuned version is much more than just an appearance package. The rest of the Sequoia lineup also receives long-awaited infotainment features, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as a mobile hotspot.

Pros
Third row is actually comfortable, all driver assists are standard, iron-clad reliability from Toyota.

Cons
Drives like a pickup truck, worst-in-class interior quality, new tech can't hide old bones.
