It’s time for the 2023 Chevy Tahoe and 2023 Toyota Sequoia to face off to help you make the best buying decision. We aren’t calling one SUV better than the other, but the Tahoe has a few unique advantages to consider. 

The Sequoia features a new exterior look, a totally revamped interior, a new powertrain, and tons of new tech. However, the Tahoe was recently redesigned in 2021. It still feels fresh and modern against rivals. 

1. The Tahoe has more engine options 

Sure, the 2023 Toyota Sequoia has a new hybrid engine, and that’s great. However, having only one option is a little limiting. Anyways, the i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain pairs a 3,4-liter V6 engine with an electric motor to generate 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. 

The base engine in the 2023 Chevy Tahoe is a 5.3-liter V8 option with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. You can upgrade to the 6.2-liter V8 engine for 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Plus, the 3.0-liter turbo diesel inline-six engine cranks out 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It’s one of the only options available with diesel power.

The Sequoia gets an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and up to 24 mpg on the highway. The diesel-powered Tahoe receives an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and up to 28 mpg on the highway, making it more efficient. 

2. The Chevy Tahoe is more comfortable 

According to The Truth About Cars, the 2023 Chevy Tahoe is more comfortable than the 2023 Toyota Sequoia. Even though the Sequoia tows up to 9,520 lbs and the Tahoe maxes out at 8,400 lbs, the Tahoe is preferred for its smoother and more confident ride. 

The Tahoe has a fully independent suspension with available magnetic ride control dampers to improve its performance. Plus, the optional air suspension can increase the ride height by four inches.

But the Sequoia has a fully independent front suspension with a solid rear axle that’s paired with coil-over springs to improve its ride. It also has an adjustable air suspension.

Also, the Tahoe offers more passenger space in the second and third rows. Only children can fit in the third row of the Sequoia, and the second-row seats don’t slide. 

3. The Tahoe has more value

You get more with the 2023 Chevy Tahoe than the 2023 Toyota Sequoia. The Tahoe starts at $52,500, and the Sequoia begins at about $58,300. That’s a $5,800 difference. 

The Tahoe has a standard 10.2-inch touchscreen, while the Sequoia has an 8.0-inch unit that can be upgraded to a 14.0-inch unit. Plus, the Tahoe has a standard Bose audio system and leather upholstery.

Moving up in trim levels with the Tahoe provides more access to features such as the Super Cruise limited hands-free driving system, surround-view camera, and a bench seat in the front row for the ability to seat up to nine passengers.

While the Sequoia has larger screens and a higher towing capacity, it doesn’t have as many custom options as the Chevy Tahoe. Plus, the Tahoe costs less and provides a more comfortable ride.
