2016 Chevrolet Suburban vs. 2016 Toyota Sequoia
Whether you’ve got a lot of cargo or passengers to carry, you need a large SUV to fit the bill. There are many options out there, but a little research will help you find the right vehicle that meets your expectations with the features that you want. We’ve taken two of the stand-out models in the large SUV segment and compared them on several important parameters. See how the 2016 Chevy Suburban and the 2016 Toyota Sequoia stack up in terms of safety, warranty, efficiency, power, and capacity.
Safety and Warranty
When hauling large amounts of cargo or transporting people you love, safety becomes more important than ever. The Suburban and Sequoia are matched when it comes to basic safety amenities. Both include features like full airbag systems, traction and electronic stability control, available blind spot warning systems, and daytime running lights.
The Suburban pulls ahead in its breadth of both standard and available safety features. The Suburban includes a standard front center airbag, power child locks, and OnStar connectivity. None of these features are provided on the Sequoia. The Suburban also has available safety features that the Sequoia doesn’t offer, including Crash Imminent Braking, full-time four wheel drive, collision warning, Hill Descent Control, and cross-path warning. In addition to its enhanced safety, the Suburban also offers one additional year of coverage on its corrosion warranty.
Whether you choose the two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive option for your new large SUV vehicle, the Suburban has the edge when it comes to fuel economy and range. All of Sequoia’s models offer a fuel economy of 13 city mpg /17 highway mpg, while the Suburban achieves up to 16 city mpg/23 highway mpg. You’ll also be able to go longer between fill ups with the Suburban’s larger fuel tank capacity, which holds 4.6 additional gallons.
Power and Payload
If your goal is to tow and haul cargo, the Suburban has a clear edge. The Suburban’s maximum trailer towing rating exceeds the Sequoia by 900 pounds. The Suburban’s standard and maximum payload capacities are both 1796 pounds, while the Sequoia is rated at 1250 pounds standard and 1350 pounds maximum.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Suburban’s cabin is much roomier than the Sequoia’s. The Suburban offers optional seating for nine passengers, whereas the Sequoia is limited to eight seats. The Suburban also boasts up to eight inches of additional headroom, 2.8 inches more legroom, and 0.4 inches of extra hip room.
