Toyota Sequoia v. Grand Highlander Specs and Real-World Testing

With the introduction of the 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander, Toyota now gives consumers two very different ways to haul up to 8 people and their gear.

In one corner, the big, truck-based Sequoia shares its body-on-frame underpinnings with the Tundra full-size pickup truck. Only one engine is offered in the Sequoia: the hybrid i-ForceMax 3.5L twin-turbo V6 with an electric motor sandwiched between the engine and transmission.

In the other corner, we have the crossover-based Grand Highlander with three different powertrains ranging from a 2.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder or a 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain, both featured in the normal Highlander. The most powerful option can also be found in the top trim of the new Crown: a 2.4L performance HybridMAX 4-cylinder making 362 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

Inside the differences are staggering, but why read the stats, let us show you just how different these two big vehicles really are.
