As the number of true sport utility vehicles available on the market continues to decrease in favor of more crossovers, that competition continues to increase. You might think it would be the other way around, but each SUV has to fight that much harder to not only be the best SUV, but to make itself more appealing than its crossover siblings. The Toyota Sequoia is one of those true SUVs, and we’re proud of its advancements each year.
However, we wanted to see how it measures up to one of its biggest competitors in the full-size SUV segment, so we decided to pit the 2018 Toyota Sequoia vs 2018 Ford Expedition. It’s a difficult comparison, with each vehicle having its clear advantages, which you can read more about below.
2018 Toyota Sequoia
2018 Ford Expedition
|381 HP||Horsepower||375 HP|
|18.9 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||20.9 cu. ft.|
|7,400 lbs.||Standard Towing Capacity||6,000 lbs.|
In the first row of the table we looked at the spec that everyone cares about: horsepower. Horsepower is important regardless of segment, and it’s especially vital in utility vehicle segments like this one. While 6 horsepower isn’t a game-changing advantage by any means, it is nonetheless an advantage that gives the Sequoia a leg up on the Expedition.
However, the Expedition fires back in an area that some might argue is more important in the SUV segment: cargo capacity. With an extra 2 cubic feet of space behind the back seat, the Expedition can accommodate more of your groceries or luggage even with a person in each seat. Of course, the Sequoia does offer more space if you drop its seats flat, so not to worry!
Additionally, the Sequoia can haul an extra 1,400 pounds on a trailer behind it, which is a pretty big advantage over the Expedition. The fourth row simply shows that both vehicles are massive, having the ability to seat up to 8 passengers. If you’re interested in a 2018 Toyota Sequoia of your own, be sure to get in touch.
