Despite its modern rear suspension, the Sequoia is built upon a pickup-truck chassis. While it adequately isolated us from the harshest bumps, too many shakes and rattles entered the cabin when driven on rough surfaces. None of its rivals are particularly fun to drive, but they either handle better or feel more composed. The Toyota’s light steering was easy to control in tight spaces and during highway cruising, but the nonexistent feedback further diminished its handling. The TRD Sport trim adds suspension bits that the company claims help it corner better and ride smoother. The Sequoia’s brake pedal was easy to modulate and firmed up after initial inputs. The hefty Toyota also had the shortest emergency stopping distance among its rivals in our testing, at 178 feet.
