The Sequoia seems to enjoy its machismo while many of its key opponents have actually been smoothed out a little bit in their design recently. Based upon the last-generation Expanse pick-up's difficult design, the Sequoia has a testosterone-tinged appearance that can show up cartoonishly musclebound to some.
