    Making the right choice is ideal – it’s human nature to pick a path and see the outcome. Choices are all around us, and you’re likely to make over a hundred choices a day. Sometimes, the choice you make could be a simple one, and others are more intense. For example, if you’ve been looking into the 2022 Chevy Tahoe vs 2022 Toyota Sequoia, you likely want to purchase a full-size SUV, but the choice between the two is harder than you may have first thought. You’re not alone in this – the Tahoe and Sequoia are often competing with one another, and you’ve likely heard great things about both manufacturers. However, one of these SUVs has it all: lower price, stronger performance, and more cargo space – this being the 2022 Chevy Tahoe.

    Trims and available pricing are both similar yet different. The LS is your base Tahoe trim and has a starting price of $50,200.* On Toyota’s side, the SR5 is the Sequoia’s base trim, and it starts at an MSRP of $50,500. And of course, everybody likes variation, so luckily, each SUV has a host of trim levels to select from. In most cases, more trims to select from is better because you can better fine-tune your experience to fit your wants and needs. Both SUVs have trim levels that focus on convenience, luxury, and each vehicle offers a trim for off-roading – the TRD Pro for the Sequoia and the Z71 for the Tahoe.

  • Performance

    The Sequoia's Engine

    Drivers expect a hefty level of performance with their full-size SUVs. After all, something as large as the Tahoe or Sequoia should expectedly harness the power to match its menacing size. To the fault of the Sequoia, there’s only one powertrain, and it’s a fuel-hungry 5.7L V8 engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. With the Tahoe, you’ll have three engines to select from, and all three come paired with a smooth feeling 10-speed automatic transmission. Even with the transmission difference alone, the 2022 Tahoe generally feels better to operate.

    The Engine Options of the Tahoe

    The base engine for the Tahoe is a 5.3L V8 engine, and it outputs 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Although the Sequoia’s engine has a stronger 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque, this doesn’t translate into better towing performance. Equipped with both engines, the Tahoe can tow a maximum of 8,400 lbs, while the Sequoia caps out at 7,400 lbs. And, because the Sequoia's engine is both larger and not of the Ecotec3 variety, its fuel efficiency capabilities suffer as a result. With the 5.7L V8, the Sequoia gets EPA-estimated ratings of 13 MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway, and the 5.3L V8 inside of the Tahoe gets 15 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway.

    One engine for the Sequoia makes the decision lean heavily in favor of the Tahoe, especially when working your way up the list of available powertrains. After the base engine, a larger 6.2L V8 engine is available, increasing the performance to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, this being a 10% and 14.7% increase in horsepower and torque output, respectively, against the Sequoia’s one and only V8. And, to the shock of many, this more powerful V8 engine found inside of the Tahoe has better fuel-saving measures than the Sequoia – garnering EPA-estimated ratings of 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway.

    Lastly, the Tahoe has an available 3.0L turbo-diesel I-6 engine, which is something that is sorely lacking on the Sequoia’s side. With the turbo-diesel engine installed, the Tahoe retains its impressive towing ratings – dropping down only to 8,200, and it still puts out 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Amongst the entire range of engines, the turbo-diesel is the most fuel-efficient, with its EPA-estimated ratings of 21 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway. No matter what engine your Tahoe comes with, you can expect generally better performance than the Sequoia.

    Similar Interior Options

    Interiors are something to highly consider when you’re purchasing a full-size SUV. For the price, you should expect both quality and convenience. In the case of the 2022 Tahoe and 2022 Sequoia, you’ll find just that. However, some differences between the two vastly separate these SUVs from each other. Starting with the seats, both SUVs allow for perforated leather seats, and you can choose to extend this leather seating through the back row too. To match this, leather-wrapped steering wheels are available, and of course, the steering wheels can be heated to warm your hands in the cold seasons. The same amenities of the steering wheel can be brought over to the seats, which offer heat and even ventilation.

    Where Things Get Different

    The first downfall we see for the Sequoia comes down to its 10-way power-adjustable seat and the front-row passenger’s 6-way power-adjustable seat. By comparison, both the driver and front-seat passenger can be treated to luxurious 12-way power-adjustable seats with the Tahoe. Additionally, all of the infotainment features you’d expect are present, from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to Bluetooth and the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots. This is where the Sequoia falters once again, and this is because your Sequoia will only come with a 7-inch touch screen for the infotainment center. The Tahoe, on the other hand, comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen, and this can be replaced with a wider optional 10.2-inch screen.

    The last point of discussion is in cabin size, more specifically, the available cargo space. After all, full-size SUVs arguably perform the best in this regard, and this is certainly true for the Tahoe and Sequoia. Interestingly, the Tahoe and Sequoia share rather similar cargo space, but the Tahoe comes out on top in all three categories: one, two, or no rows folded. When all of the seats remain in their up-position, the Tahoe gives you 25.5 cu.ft. of space against the Sequoia’s 18.9 cu.ft. If you don’t need the third row of seats upright, then folding them down will reveal 66.6 cu.ft. in the Sequoia and 72.6 cu.ft. in the Tahoe. Folding down both rows of seats will reveal 122.9 cu.ft. of space inside of the Tahoe, but the Sequoia doesn’t fall too far behind with a maximum of 120.1 cu.ft.

    Similar Safety Features Will Serve You Well

    Both the 2022 Tahoe and Sequoia come with a wide range of identical safety features, and this is because each one comes with a brand-exclusive safety suite. The Tahoe has the Chevy Safety Assist package, and the Sequoia gets the Toyota Safety Sense P package. Given the higher price of the Sequoia, it’s expected that you’d find some of these features, but it’s even more impressive that purchasing the Tahoe can get you similar features at a lower price.

    Among the available features, you’ll find the Tahoe’s Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and Front Pedestrian Braking. A similar feature is found on the Sequoia – the Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection. Similarly, the Tahoe comes with Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Toyota offers Lane Departure Alert with available Steering Assist. After this, we have IntelliBeam Auto High Beam Assist on the Tahoe, which the Sequoia matches with its Automatic High Beams.

    All of the included safety features found in both vehicles serve an important purpose. Thanks to these features, your SUV can prevent collisions and warn you about them ahead of time, and the Auto High Beams will keep your path lit when you need it the most and will turn off the high beams when another vehicle is passing by. And, of course, both SUVs can warn you if you’re veering outside of your intended lane during highway travel and can help correct your steering if need be. Overall, both safety suites are impressive, but the Tahoe will give you an identical experience for less money.
