Here's a towing fuel mileage comparison of a Sequoia gas vs a Suburban diesel.

Enjoy...

Another apple vs nails comparison.

Takes a bunch of miles to repay the cost of a diesel at a 2.8 mpg advantage.

X2 “BTW... I'll take the Suburban or Tahoe all day long!” Sequoia looks bad IMO.

The most useless “comparison” I have ever seen considering there is nothing comparable. Even though the Sequoia is a 2021 model it came out in 2007 and other than some cosmetic updates it has not changed since. The 5.7l is bulletproof but has always been thirsty, especially when still mated to a 6 speed and 4.30 gears. Pitting it against a brand new diesel with a 10 speed proves nothing. Not even apples to oranges. Diesel will always get better mileage than gas when towing as will new versus old technology.

Try comparing how much time each one spends in the repair shop instead.

Toyota hasn't done much at all with the Sequoia over the years other than the price. Think like the Tundra, it's a niche vehicle that sells sufficently
to justify its existence to Toyota's bean counters. They know neither vehicle will sell like the Big 3 offerings, they're just showing the flag.

And this is the whole point of the comparison!

So if GM dug out a tbi 350 from the warehouse, dusted off a power glide, shoved it into the new Burb, all of a sudden they're comparable?

Just because Toyota chose not to innovate, it doesn't make the comparison unfair.

Likewise, if the GM does break down more often, can we say "you can't compare the reliability, apples vs oranges"? If we compare reliability on equal grounds, then we compare performance / mpg on equal grounds too.

Bingo!
One of these days when we're all pumping unicorn farts into our vehicles, the anti diesel guys will realize we should have bene batting for the same team the whole time!
