Clever features are basically workarounds for a compromised (and small) cargo area
Anyway, let’s talk about the 2023 Toyota Sequoia, because it sure is an interesting test case. All-new for the first time since George W. Bush was president, the Sequoia’s cargo situation is truly unique, and not necessarily in a good way. The specs say there is between 11.5 and 22.3 cubic-feet of space behind the raised third row. What’s up with the range rather than a single number? The Sequoia uniquely has a sliding third-row seat, which is a commendable feature in theory. Trouble is, you have to slide it all the way forward to achieve that maximum 22.3 number. You have to do no such thing in the Sequoia’s American rivals to achieve comparable on-paper cargo volumes: Chevy Tahoe/GMC Yukon (25.5), Ford Expedition (19.3) and Jeep Wagoneer (27.4). The Sequoia’s minimum number, 11.5 cubic-feet, would theoretically be worse than a Kia Sorento, which would be pathetic.
Alas, the Advanced Institute for Luggage Testing exists for a reason: Numbers don’t really tell the whole story. And rarely has that been more true than with the 2023 Toyota Sequoia.
