This thing is a rip off, you need to spend 55K just to get steering wheel controls! I love how Toyota nickel & dimes you on options.At 54K you get floor mats, wooohooo!

I like the way they look from dead straight on, but I hate how much the roofline slopes down, it makes it look retarded. Same thing applies to the Tundra. I looked at the Sequoia but went with the tahoe on looks and value.

you have to expect biased answers as your on a tahoe forum. Toyota forums probably say the same about tahoes. But yes I will always buy American ANC chevy. And to tell you the truth the toyota is just butt ugly

What do you mean, "dwarfed my Denali"? Is it taller, or just bulkier? It looks about the same size to me. I don't think it's hideous, but the tail end looks like a giant Camry, and the grille is butt-ugly. Not bad from the side. I'm sure if Lexus makes a version for '09 , it will be better looking.

The sequoia is essentially the same size as a tahoe.
I looked at and drove a sequoia before I got my tahoe. The interior of the sequoia is a joke next to the tahoe's. It is a cheap toyota interior, toyota still doesn't get it that their interiors are garbage.
Exterior, Looks are a matter of taste.
One of the things that sold me on the tahoe is that it drives much nicer than the toyota. The sequoia feels like an old truck, the tahoe drives like a car.
Pricewise, I could've got a loaded sequoia for about the same price that I got my loaded LT3 Z71 Tahoe. What do you think is the better deal?
BTW, toyota does something that the idiots at GM still dont get, the Sequoia has bluetooth.

its not that gm does not get it, its that they want you to use the onstar system, buy their minuites, or get verizon, which sucks badly, at least let more than one carrier work on it, how about att, altel, sprint, tmobile, get the big guys all in, then we can stop complaining about bluetooth. which i hate btw, bluetooth always craps out on me, in the middle of a call, as what ever phone im using goes in to battery saver mode and stops the bluetooth signal, stupid design.

Rafael
01-16-2008, 12:48 PM
I still think gm doesn't get, how many sales have they lost because you have to use verizon or you are screwed?
I agree with you though that they should open it up to all cell providers, I'd still get the onstar.

There is really no comparison. I think toyota really dropped the ball on the Sequoia. They need to either make the 4runner a bit larger or drop the price on the Landcruiser, the Sequoia is neither here nor there.

Let's see which will still be made in 10 years. The Tahoe is almost a guarantee, the Sequoia maybe/maybe not.

Yes, you are correct sir, and yes everyone is entitled to their own opinions and views on anything and I certainly respect that.

But I am not sure if this thread should have been posted in the applicable forum. This is the 2007+ Tahoe section, and this thread is biased to the Sequioa, thus it probably should be in the "Other vehicle section or General Offtopic".

EVER... maybe toyota aint great, but i think that GM is still light years away from Lexus' styling, comfort and technology... hope not to offend, but just my $.02... btw, i still LOVE my denali and wouldn't trade it for the world...

i think toyotas interiors are worse actully, more plastic and they look cheap, and you have to spend like 60k to get even a moderatly equipped lexus, and if you think about it, cadillac is the lexus of chevy, and cadillac has some damn nice trucks and cars, a whole lot nicer than lexus.

Saw one today while dropping my kid off at school. It's definitely bigger (i.e. taller) than my Tahoe, but then again, I'm sitting on stock 17s. It's beefy-looking, but I thought it was much uglier as well. It's really hard to improve on the current Tahoe exterior, at least IMO.

The closest lexus to a loaded tahoe would be the LX. They cost about $25,000 more than a tahoe, so I would expect a lot more vehicle. Besides a great interior, awesome sound system and a virtually sound proof cabin, the LX's 4wd system is one of the best available. Unfortunately, most LX's are driven by a bunch of soccer mom's who will never take the thing off of nice road, what a waste of a great off road vehicle.

[QUOTE=Rollin Thunder;32352]you have to spend like 60k to get even a moderatly equipped lexus,


Really??? How do you define "moderately equipped?" Obviously you do not have a clue about Lexus, the standand equipment/options on their vehicles as well pricing. I would suggest that you educate yourself about Lexus before making statements on something you know nothing about. I currently own a 07 Lexus GS350, previously a 05 RX330, both were purchased new, both fully loaded with nearly every option available and I walked out the door (taxes, tag, destination, doc fees) for less than $45k.

Ok enough bashing, please do not take any offence. Love our Tahoe, and so far it has been bullet proof. But just think about something for just a minute. Toyota will likely overtake GM as the worlds largest automaker in the very near future. This did not happen over night. It was done by providing very well built vehicles at exceptional values.

There you go. But with todays quality control a tahoe can be just as safe (if not safer since their huge) and reliable, god knows if my truck could handle the single digits climin 12 and 15% grades, with hot heat coming ou. doing 80 or 50 if i needed 4wd to get through ice and snow, plus driving around town when i got there even helping my mothers friend move in towing about 5000k worth of stuff in a cargo trailer, and never once gave me a hickup i will never drive anything else. :eek2: chevy got ballz.

Land cruiser from the suspension down is great, from the suspension up it is an overpriced corolla.

You gotta be kidding. Have you been in a LX or Land Cruiser? I'm not talking about an FJ Cruiser.

There is no comparison in a LX or LC to any GM Product, to be honest. I love GM, but there really is no comparison. If I could justify a 70k+ SUV I wouldn't be in a Tahoe. It would be a LX470 or Range Rover.

maintenance/reliability is a big issue. Here's my analogy
The RR is almost like my old girlfriend from Scores NYC.. Great to look at..fun to ride and high maintenance... Needless to say..I married my girlfriend from highschool and settled down with a Denali...Both are reliable and great to look at..

That look of substantiality is gone. I adored the 470, and would take a 2006 470 over a 2007 Escalade. People yack about their tahoes going to 200k, etc etc etc. Thats great, thats alot of miles. A Land Cruiser or an LX 470 could do 200k without a hiccup, and then more.

RT is right; Consumer Reports rated the Land Rover Range Rover, RR Sport, and LR3 as the worst of the worst in reliability and maintenance. It scored very low in a lot of categories, and even customer satisfaction. And though I don't own one, I've worked on plenty of them and have to agree with CR's rating.

i wouldnt knock toyota. i love both toyotas and chevys... driving both, my toyota was a bit more reliable, i had 180K miles on the 4runner before i sold it for $11K. Nice value retention... but i love my denali more than any car i've ever had....

im not into the whole american vs. japan thing... when i was buying my denali i heard the salesman trying to sell a couple a silverado. "you don't want to buy a tundra, you are just sending money to them japs"...

im not japanese, but i did feel obliged to stop and tell the salesman and the couple that the new tundra was designed out of ann arbor michigan, styling done in newport beach ca, and lastly built the engines are built in Huntsville, AL, and put togther at facilities in Indiana and San Antonio, TX...

i dunno, but sounds like they're putting some food on the tables of hard working americans... i don't know all that much about the Chevys, but i do believe some of the GMT900s are manufactured in Canada...
