Which SUV is Better: Atlas or Sequoia?

Price is an important factor when it comes to making any purchase decision, and that includes a car, and especially an SUV where inflated manufacturer’s prices can be a common practice. Here the Atlas comes out well on top with a starting MSRP almost $20,000 less than the Sequoia. That’s a big savings for a vehicle of this size and with these features.

Under the hood that Atlas comes with either a powerful 2.0-liter 4-cylinder or a V6. With that 4-cylinder under the hood, you get some insane efficiency, especially for a three-row SUV. The V6 also comes out ahead of the Sequoia with 17-city MPG and 23-highway MPG.

Attached to the engine options for the Atlas is an 8-speed automatic transmission that not only provides loads of efficiency but also makes for a super smooth ride. Additionally, though both SUV options have available AWD, the Atlas comes standard with front-wheel drive which can handle much more reliably than the rear-wheel drive that comes standard Sequoia.

To top off the conversation, the Atlas comes with a significantly longer warranty in terms of both time and miles. That’s more peace of mind for you and your family.
