The Toyota Sequoia is the largest SUV in the automaker's lineup, and its ability to carry up to eight passengers has made it an all-star among large families. This full-size sport utility vehicle boasts a similar status when it comes to resale value, where the Toyota Sequoia retains its king-of-the-hill position for another year.
Unlike car-based crossover SUVs, the 2014 Sequoia retains its sturdy truck chassis and available 4-wheel-drive system that enable this family hauler to venture far off the beaten path. All Sequoia models back up their big and brawny image with just such an engine: a 5.7-liter V8 that makes 381 horsepower and a robust 401 lb-ft of torque. That last figure is especially relevant for those who aim to tow. In that respect, the Sequoia is rated to pull up to 7,400 pounds of boat, trailer or toys.
Inside, the Sequoia boasts plenty of features to prevent the dreaded "Are we there yet?" queries. While Mom and Dad can stay comfortable in leather-trimmed, heated and cooled front seats, the kids can be entertained with a rear-seat Blu-ray system with 9-inch screen and wireless headphones. Perhaps just as important, you'll never be at a loss for cup holders in the Sequoia -- a whopping 16 or 18 are standard, depending on trim.
With a starting price of under $45,000, the Sequoia offers a lot of vehicle for the money. In addition to the high resale value it brings when it's time to sell, the Sequoia has the ability to bring years of priceless family excursions.
With seating for six or seven passengers and a standard V6 engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe offers impressive features for the money.
Though on its last year in current form, the GMC Yukon still stands out with seating for up to nine passengers and impressive towing capability.
