Toyota Sequoia, Chevy Tahoe, Ford Expedition: Spec-by-spec comparison


When it comes to hauling the family and towing recreation equipment, a full-size SUV is hard to beat. Before you go shopping, check out the specs for the new Toyota Sequoia, Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition to find one that suits you best.

Before we get to the specs, it is worth noting, the full-size SUV market is hot with the newly updated Chevy Tahoe, a refreshed Ford Expedition with a new interior and some unique trim packages, such as the Timberline, and then there is the completely new Toyota Sequoia.

Plus, the Jeep Wagoneer is now an option creating yet another all new vehicle to choose from.

Editor’s note: Due to website space constraints, the Wagoneer was left out of this spec chart.

Here are the specs:
