Briangle's Diary, entry #370:

Today, I drove the Sequoia. What an insufferable car. It made such a racket that everyone noticed, forever tarnishing my demure image. Such embarrassment! I thought these Japanese curiosities were supposed to be indestructible? I can't believe it's made with the same inferior components as my aging BMW. Noisy, cumbersome, and like an old relatives, needs constant looking after. Oh, woe is me! Speaking of which, I wonder what new and interesting defect I will discover tomorrow. Just last week, some expensive fuel component gave up, and I was about to have my way with the boss of BMW of North America due to the subpar service from the dealer, which left me speechlessly displeased. Very. Displeased. Totally unacceptable, and if my recent experiences are any indication, then this entry will certainly not be my last!

xoxo,
Briangle

Doesn't the Sequoia engine only make as much as a 330? More torque yes, but it better, since it will probably be heavier as well.

That's the new 4.6L V8. The 5.7L puts out 381 hp and 401 lb-ft. The 4.7L we have puts out 240 hp and 315 lb-ft.
