2012 Toyota Sequoia
Best large SUV
The 2012 Toyota Sequoia is a reviewer favorite for its heavy-duty truck capabilities, bolstered by a best-in-class driving experience and smart interior packaging. Both available V8 engines are smooth and powerful, and reviews say they're among the best available among large SUVs. Add excellent maximum cargo capacity, flexible and comfortable second- and third-row seating, and a maximum tow capacity of 7,400 pounds, and you've got an excellent all-around package. The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe (Base MSRP: $38,530 to $55,850) is a close runner-up whose max tow capacity is even higher, but it doesn't have as flexible an interior, and it doesn't match the Sequoia's superior ride quality.
