2001 Toyota Sequoia

The truck-based Toyota Sequoia was introduced in 2001. The most notable thing about the Sequoia is its size. It’s huge. Designed to compete with the Ford Expedition, the Sequoia is meant for drivers who often carry a lot of passengers or a lot of cargo. The interior of the Sequoia is well designed to take advantage of the extra space, with plenty of cubbies and storage. The third row seats are removable, and the second row seats fold, to create a large amount of cargo space.

The 2001 Sequoia is available in two trims, the SR5 and the Limited. The Limited is the more luxurious version, with leather seating, front and rear air conditioning, and an upgraded stereo. Both share a 4.7-liter, 280 power V8, and both are available as a two or four-wheel drive. Not surprisingly, fuel economy is 14/17.

Despite its size and heft, drivers say their 2001 Sequoias are easy to drive and handle quite well. Owners also say the cars are very reliable and perform very well in the snow. Most complaints are not surprising, giving the 2001 Sequoia’s size. Drivers say the car is difficult to get into and park, and has poor gas mileage. Another complaint is limited rear visibility.
