|120.1 cubic feet||Cargo Space||104.6 cubic feet|
As you can see from the specs above, the 2018 Toyota Sequoia offers a little more power on its base engine and a larger cargo space too. However, we think what really sets these vehicles apart are the standard and available safety features.
Like many new Toyota models, the 2018 Sequoia comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense bundle. That means, regardless of trim level, all 2018 Toyota Sequoia models will be equipped with Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams. A Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert is also available on higher trim levels for added protection.
In terms of safety, the 2018 Ford Expedition only offers rear parking sensors on its base model. Other safety features like Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear-Cross Traffic alert are available on higher trim levels or add-on packages, though options are less robust than those included on the base trim of the 2018 Toyota Sequoia.
We find that the 2018 Toyota Sequoia's standard safety, increased cargo space and smaller starting MSRP makes it a better overall pick for a family hauler.
