BASE PRICE RANGE: $40,555-$60,930
BODY TYPE: Full-size/Luxury SUV
WHAT'S NEW: Last year, Toyota added the company's new 4.6L, 310-hp V-8 to the Sequoia, which has better fuel economy than the 4.7L it replaced, and more power. For 2011, a brake override system was added, there is a new woodgrain on the Platinum grade, and Dark Gray replaces Slate while Nautical Blue and Spruce were dropped.
COOL FACT: The Sequoia's third-row seats recline and, Toyota says, are big enough to fit three people, not two and a half.
SUM UP: Superfast guilty pleasure.
