As more 2019 Toyota models roll into our dealership, we begin highlighting the newly-released vehicles. The 2019 Toyota Sequoia is one SUV that’s getting a lot of attention from auto publications. One of the evaluations involves Group Reviews from the automotive site The Drive.

Group Reviews involve two or more editors that review and pick apart a specific vehicle. In this instance, the 2019 Toyota Sequoia was the subject of intense scrutiny from two seasoned reviewers. You can read the full transcribed dialogue by visiting the official website for The Drive.

Here is the general sentiment of the 2019 Toyota Sequoia TRD Sport from the reviewers.

The editors began by praising the full-size SUV’s reliable V8 engine, its 7,400-pound tow capacity, and eight-passenger capacity. They also made note of the vehicle’s anti-sway bars that grace the front and rear.

The editors went on to praise the suite of safety technology, which includes auto high-beams, emergency braking, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning. They mentioned the Toyota Sequoia is ideal for suburban families and those that frequently travel with heavy gear in tow, such as irregularly-shaped and bulky sporting equipment.

Of course, as with any honest and balanced review, there were also some low points. The editors pointed out the infotainment system felt a bit outdated. They did quickly mention, though, that this may be a plus for some car buyers as it provided a retro feel and pays homage to older models.

The 2019 Toyota Sequoia provides everything you would expect in a large SUV and then some. The roomy interior and safety technology make it an attractive choice as a soccer mom vehicle. See our finance department near Lemon Grove, CA, if you’re considering a purchase or lease.
