Hi!! Guys, I'm new to this forum. I love Toyota, Lexus, BMW, and Ferrari. You can tell that I love Toyota a lot since I love Toyota and Lexus. Anyways, my question was that why did Toyota make Sequoia when they already had the Land Cruiser. The Sequoia is a little bigger than the Land Cruiser but the Land Cruiser is about $10,000 more expensive than the top of the line Sequoia. Why? They both have about the same luxury things. Why would people buy the Land Cruiser then?

I like both. This stuff has been bothering me for some time.

Thanks.
BYE.

Some people like to drive vehicles that are a little less common. A LandCruiser does not get lost in the parking lot along side all of the Tahoes/Explorers and now Sequoias. I also appreciate how wide the vehicle is - - There is room between the 2 front seats. Not to mention it's legendary history as an incredible 4X4. Resale value is good. It also comes loaded.

Definitely a Land Cruiser. Just compare the 2 side by side. The materials use on the landcruiser are way better.

Land cruiser has a smoother, more luxurious ride. The difference in interior luxury is serious too, Land Cruiser has lexus luxuy beauty.

^^ different frame work.

Land Cruiser has a shorter frame and has more structural rigidity.

Suspension is also different, wheelbase, front and rear track, larger and wider size tires and rims, ect....

As a 2000 LC owner I can honestly say that there is a world of difference between the two. LC hands down give you a much smoother ride not mention more space. I've test driven both and found the LC a much more comfortable ride. I know it's 10k more but IMO it's well worth the extra money.

I would go for the landcruiser. The Sequoia is built on a modified Tundra frame and is nowhere near the vehicle the LC is. Just check the price.
The Sequoia is Toyota's answer to the Tahoe and Expedition. It has a car like ride and no locking diff. if I'm not mistaken. Sequoia is built for suburban use, while the LC is built to go anywhere. I once heard the only thing a LC can't climb is trees.

it's like you said the sequoia is bigger, gets better mileage than older lc's but the lc has such a reputation for 4X4 and the seqoia comes in 4WD but i'm sure it's nothing like an lc. i think newer lc's get better mileage because they have the same v8 in them as all the other suv's instead of a straight 6.

Hands down the Land Cruiser. I have driven both and there is noticeable luxury built into the LC that is not present in the Sequoia. The Sequoia feels more like a truck, will not handle as well off-road and supposedly (i've never tested this) does not pull as well.
