The SUV lineup from Toyota gets a little complicated when you get up to the three-row options. For Three-row SUVs you have the Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, and the Land Cruiser. Those are ordered in terms of price. However, the 4Runner isn’t always a three-row model, and the Land Cruiser is a premium luxury model that may be out of reach for some. This makes the Sequoia the natural upgrade from the Highlander.
