Driving Impressions

Only a glance is should see that the Sequoia is truly large. In spite of plentiful dimensions, the Sequoia does not really feel as enormous as some rivals once you've managed to get within. As a matter of fact, it drives beautifully and also produces a superb freeway trip. You really feel the bumps, but the suspension absorbs the burden of the imperfections. The Sequoia takes contours much better compared to anticipated, though it's difficult to withstand the tendency to limit one's foot on the gas pedal. Little correction is needed on straightaways, and also there's no propensity to "roam.".

Vigorous V-8 velocity is matched by an easy-action automatic transmission with a column gearshift. The engine is quiet, as well as no other audios are aggravating. Passengers have lots of room all over, in addition to abundant storage possibilities.
