10 Best Cars for Your Family's Summer Vacation

8. 2013 Toyota Sequoia (TM - Get Report)

Starting price: $42,455

Of course, if you're less concerned about such things as budget and gas prices and more concerned about how you're going to get your family to the summer house quietly while still getting the boat in the water as early as possible, it may be time to consider something larger.

The Sequoia is one of the last of the giant, hulking SUVs of the past decade that placed size and sheer brute ahead of economy and efficiency. Its V8 engine has enough muscle to tow 7,400 pounds, making it a nice complement to the family boat or airstream. The Sequoia itself, meanwhile, is practically a tour bus. Its second- and third-row seats slide and recline, and the whole vehicle seats up to eight passengers. There's still 19 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in place, but that expands to nearly 67 cubic feet with the rear ones out. Add a blind-spot warning system and rear-seat DVD entertainment system and you've just made yourself the envy of the interstate -- at least until you hit the gas station and start paying for your paltry combined 15.5 miles per gallon.
