The Sequoia TRD Sport 4x4 executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1 seconds quicker than the LX 570 (27.3 seconds @ .65 average G’s vs. 28.3 seconds @ .59 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Sequoia’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the LX 570’s (38.1 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Sequoia Platinum has a greater minimum ground clearance than the LX 570 (9.6 vs. 8.9 inches), allowing the Sequoia to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.
