Full-size SUVs are known for their powerful performance capabilities as well as their spacious cabins with lots of room for both passengers and cargo. Drivers looking for a vehicle that is perfect for weekend adventures can look no further than the full-size SUV segment. Our team here at Serra Toyota will be taking a closer look into this category with a comparison between the 2016 Toyota Sequoia and the 2016 Chevy Suburban. Both vehicles offer seating for eight passengers and are set with 6-speed automatic transmissions.
First, let’s note that we’re comparing the base models for each vehicle, so the 2016 Toyota Sequoia SR5 versus the 2016 Chevy Suburban LS. Each of them are set with similar sized engines, but the Sequoia comes out on top when it comes to horsepower. With a slightly smaller engine, the 2016 Suburban does get a better fuel economy with an estimated 23 mpg on the highway compared to the 2016 Sequoia with 17 mpg on the highway. Read on while we take a closer look into the similarities and differences these vehicles offer.

When it comes to standard features, these full-size SUVs have a lot in common including standard cruise control, driver multi-adjustable power seat and an outside temperature gauge.
