The Sequoia has been the best vehicle I've ever owned, but with 180K my wife is adamant that we replace it for upcoming road trips. So, I guess I will. I'm down to two, and am reaching out for input from anyone with an opinion--I don't think the membership is short on those . Use: My daily, but I don't need to commute to work any more (haven't for 10 years) and really don't drive that much other than short hops except for fishing day trips, and longer road trips. I need some towing capacity for a small boat and maybe a camp trailer. My rock climbing, stream jumping days are mostly over but I do hit some rugged trails and need at least AWD, plus it's good on the boat ramps. I've always had 4WD . Equally as important is comfort on long trips. Both of us enjoy body on frame trucks, but don't want to be bounced around all the time. We have a 2WD Taco in the family and have no problem with that ride. We don't get to use it much as it's our daughter's. Also very important is cargo space for the fishing stuff and pontoons, obviously. 4Runner At the top of the list so far. Haven't driven a recent one yet--the last generation seemed like a rough drive. Gas mileage is OK, cargo space--I can adapt. Has good clearance, not sure about 4WD or AWD but the Limited gives you no choice (AWD). Biggest concern is ride and handling. Again, if it's as good or better than the Taco, no problem. Pricey but the $$ isn't the main consideration. Tows 4700#. Had Toyotas or Lexus in some form since my 1966 Stout Pickup so I do have a strong Toyota bias. I have not put a dime into the Sequoia other than regular maintenance and a broken rear hatch lock. Subie Outback Great gas mileage even with the V6, capable off road I think, $10K less than the T4R, smaller but not by much, not a looker, seems as most Outback owners love them. They are not popular down here except in Tahoe, so resale might not be as good as any Toy. Am thinking the long rides might be more comfortable? Tows only 3000# which works today but I don't know what a small camp trailer requires. Unibody, essentially a station wagon with clearance and AWD, which would be a new ride for us. Rejected (right or wrong) --Tahoe. Too expensive and even the Escalade cousin doesn't ride that well. Nice looking though. --Dodge Durango. Specs are good and we have one of those too in the family but I have about as much confidence in Dodge as I have in California lowering taxes and becoming business friendly. --The Reskinned Domestic Minivans (Acadia, Enclave, Traverse). Maybe I shouldn't throw them out so easily, but I don't know if I can ever trust them in the dirt. Plus I don't really trust anything domestic. Hate to give up the V8 and big comfort of the Sequoia, but the gas mileage at 15.9 is taking its toll and we just don't need that capacity any longer. You say?
