What have you been searching for in a new or used SUV? If you have been searching for rugged performance and competitive quality, then you may want to consider a Toyota Sequoia or INFINITI QX80. The Toyota Sequoia and INFINITI QX80 are the two most popular SUVs on the market, thanks to their value, luxury, space, and overall versatility. Here we are going to put them head to head, comparing comfort, interior styling, performance, and reliability to see which of these titans of the SUV industry stands above the other.
Toyota Sequoia vs. INFINITI QX80 Performance
What matters more to you in an SUV, horsepower or towing? Because both of these vehicles have those in spades. However, no matter the model year, the INFINITI QX80 has a far superior towing capacity and horsepower when compared to the Toyota Sequoia. Current model year INFINITI QX80 can tow up to 8500 lbs while the Sequoia caps out at more than 1000 pounds less. Further, the INFINITI QX80 has a higher horsepower, albeit with less lead over the Sequoia than with its impressive towing capacity.
Toyota Sequoia vs. INFINITI QX80 Comfort
The Toyota Sequoia and INFINITI QX80 have similar dimensions, although the INFINITI QX80 is slightly larger and provides greater leg room for taller individuals seated in the front and back seats. Furthermore, it is somewhat longer than the Sequoia, which can affect it's turning radius, but also allows for more cargo space and interior comfort. The winner here will ultimately depend upon if you prefer more robust or compact SUVs.
Toyota Sequoia vs. INFINITI QX80 Reliability
Simply put, the INFINITI QX80 has a more complex engine and a more robust suite of technological features, all of which increase the number of failure points in the vehicle. The simple design of the Toyota Sequoia helps it in this regard, as it has a slightly higher reliability score. Although both are still incredibly reliable vehicles and you are unlikely to have any significant issues with an INFINITI QX80.
Toyota Sequoia vs. INFINITI QX80 Interior Features
The Toyota Sequoia and INFINITI QX80 have several features shared across the pair. However, while the Sequoia has an extensive suite of available options, the INFINITI QX80 is standard, making it far better for off-the-shelf performance without nickel and diming you for every optional feature. Some of the best features which come standard in the INFINITI QX80 include the following:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Android Auto
- Apple Car Play

All of the above are standard on the newest Toyota Sequoia models. But the INFINITI QX80 takes all that and adds these features as standard:
