Trying to decide which vehicle is right for you can be a daunting task, especially when drivers have to accommodate their lifestyles, families, and cargo. Aside from the price, there are a lot of factors full-size SUVs are expected to excel at such as horsepower, cargo capacity and towing capabilities. We’re bringing two of the most popular full-size SUVs on the market head-to-head to help you determine which one is best for you. The 2015 Toyota Sequoia and the 2015 Ford Expedition have very similar capabilities, but the 2015 Sequoia may come out on top in the categories that matter most to you.
One of the main differences you may notice between the vehicles is the engine. The 2015 Sequoia is equipped with a 5.7-liter V-8, while the 2015 Ford Expedition has a 3.5-liter V-6. The difference in engines shows in each vehicle’s horsepower offerings, with the Sequoia at 381 horsepower and the Expedition at 365 horsepower. The Sequoia does fall behind when looking at the towing capacity, but it makes up for it with more cargo volume overall. If you pick the 2015 Sequoia, you’ll have all the room you need for you, your family and all your cargo.
