Learn How the Tahoe Beats the Sequoia in This Comparison!

What do you get when you compare two of the top vehicles in the SUV segment? A healthy competition. The 2016 Chevy Tahoe vs 2016 Toyota Sequoia near Washington, D.C., is a comparison featuring these full-size SUVs provided by yours truly, Pohanka Chevrolet. Learn how the Tahoe dominated the Sequoia in more ways than one.

When you drive an SUV, you don’t want to completely drain your bank account by incessant stops for gas. While the Sequoia might make you do so, the Tahoe won't. The Chevy Tahoe proudly boasts 16/23/18 MPG city/hwy/combined1, which is an impressive range of numbers for its segment. The Sequoia can’t quite keep up with 13/17/14 MPG city/hwy/combined2, seemingly miniscule numbers compared to those of the Tahoe. Though we will give it to the Sequoia who has a higher fuel tank capacity at 26.4 gallons, leaving the Tahoe with 26 gallons – not much of a striking difference, but numbers don’t lie.

The Chevy Tahoe not only has a higher fuel efficiency than the Sequoia, it also has a higher towing capacity. When equipped with the Max Trailering Package, you’ll have a solid 8,600-lb. towing capability3 when behind the wheel of the 2016 Tahoe. Also included within this available package is a trailer brake controller, available smooth ride suspension with air leveler, and a 3.42 rear axle ratio for the optimal towing experience. Standard features for towing on the Tahoe include a trailering hitch platform, 7-wire harness mated to a 7-way sealed connector, and a 2-inch trailering receiver. The Toyota Sequoia only has a maximum 7,400-lb. towing capacity4, and its standard features include a towing hitch receiver and wiring harness with 4/7-pin connector.

When it comes to the comparison of the 2016 Chevy Tahoe vs 2016 Toyota Sequoia near Washington, D.C., it’s clear to see the Tahoe’s lead against the Sequoia in terms of fuel efficiency and capability. The Tahoe only increases that distance with its safety features. When you’re driving an SUV as large as the Tahoe or Sequoia, you want to know that it’s well-equipped to have your back when needed. The Tahoe comes standard with a Rearview Camera5, which allows for optimal reversing with and without a haul in tow. This feature is only available in higher trims of the Sequoia.

To further aid in reversing, the Tahoe even offers Rear Park Assist5. This feature is also standard on every trim, which utilizes ultrasonic sensors in the rear of the vehicle that helps detect objects in the vehicle’s path, and uses warning tones to alert the driver. Rear Cross Traffic Alert5 is an available option, which alerts the driver when it detects any traffic approaching from the sides. You won’t find these features on the Sequoia. To top it off, the Tahoe is outfitted an abundance of OnStar® technologies, such as Automatic Crash Response, Roadside Assistance, hands-free calling, remote door unlock/lock, and so much more. There is no OnStar® services available in the Sequoia.
