2016 Toyota Sequoia vs 2016 Chevy Tahoe
The full-size sport utility vehicle segment has been one of the most popular car classifications on the market for a long time, and two of the top choices are available right here at Drive Wheaton. We wanted to compare these two juggernauts against one another to show you the differences between them and advantages of each, so we took a closer look at the 2016 Toyota Sequoia vs 2016 Chevy Tahoe to get a better idea.
The Sequoia was first created in 2000, meaning it’s been around for fifteen years which is definitely a healthy run. But the Chevy Tahoe has been around even longer, having been introduced in 1995. Both vehicles have had plenty of time to hone their craft and improve themselves, so it’s no surprise that they’re sitting atop the segment. The Tahoe just entered its fourth generation for 2015, and the Sequoia is still in its second generation which will likely change in the next couple of years.
Differences between then 2016 Toyota Sequoia, Chevy Tahoe
Glancing at the table above you can certainly discern that the two vehicles are quite similar, but each SUV has its own advantages in certain specifications. Starting at the top of the table, the Sequoia takes an early lead with an extra 26 horsepower pumping from the engine. 26 isn’t massive but it will make the SUV a bit more enjoyable. But if that doesn’t seem that important, then you might prefer saving quite a bit of gas money with the Tahoe as it utilizes 3.6 l/100km less on the highway. That’s a pretty substantial advantage.
But the Toyota Sequoia fires back with an extra 3.6 cubic feet of space for your cargo behind the back row. Yet if you’ve got a lot of cargo, so much so that you need to trailer it behind the vehicle, then the Tahoe will again take the advantage, being able to tow an extra 1,200 lbs. If either of these vehicles sound interesting to you, be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website and we’ll get you behind the wheel ASAP!
