Great tow vehicle. Tow a 26' Flagstaff travel trailer with it. Like all comparable tow vehicles, mileage drops to 10-12 mpg when towing. With no trailer, expect high teens and even above 20 on occasion. Smooth. quiet and reliable. A/C is a bit weak but OK. Ride can be a bit choppy on rough roads. But, this is a heavy duty body-on-frame rig and it is very strongly made. 5.7 engine and trans are excellent. I am very happy with this 2nd Gen Sequoia.
Own a 2012 Sequoia Platinum. 30,000 miles on it. Kids love it, plenty of room, great on long trips. Engine noise is horrible. 5.7L produces plenty of power, but instead of a powerful and throaty exhaust note from the rear, I get a ton of clicking, buzzing and whining from under the hood. Annoying enough that I wouldn't buy again. A $65,000 vehicle should not sound like this.
Have a 2012 Sequoia Limited. Exceptional vehicle and excellent ride. Plenty of room for family on long trips, and enough torque to tow anything you have, plus big brakes to stop you in a hurry. Quality of interior has dropped slightly than my previous Toyotas, but still far superior to anything Ford or GMC has to offer. Thus the 4 stars. Air conditioning is the one thing that Toyota has never mastered. I own 4 Toyotas (2 tundras, 4-ruuner, and Sequoia) none of them cool really well in the Louisiana summer heat 100+ deg/100% humidity, but keep the vehicle cool enough that no one complains. Other than the AC, a Toyota can not be beat for the price.
I just purchased a new 2012 Platinum Sequoia. The issue I am having is with engine noise. Any time I press the accelerator for more speed or power, I get an annoying buzz from the engine. I didn't have this with my 2008 Sequoia which I liked much better than this 2012 so far. Also, the steering is very stiff....hope this will loosen up with some miles on it.
