2012 Toyota Avalon U.S. pricing announced

Article by Christian A., on November 21, 2011

The pricing of the 2012 Avalon sedan is unchanged over the 2011 model, according to Toyota Motor Sales (TMS). It confirmed that the specifications and the pricing of the Options/Packages offered for the 2012 Avalon have not been changed and the car will be priced from $33,195 (FWD Avalon V6), while the most expensive will be the FWD Limited V6, which is priced from $36,435.

Production of the 2012 Avalon started on Nov. 7 at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK). The 2012 Avalon offers consumers a unique mix of full-size spaciousness with subtle luxury in two trim levels.

2012 Avalon grade comes with a wide range of desirable standard features like the multi-function remote keyless entry, leather-trimmed eight-way power driver’s seat, wood-grain style interior trim, and auto-dimming electrochromic rearview mirror with compass, HomeLink universal transceiver and an integrated back-up camera (on vehicles without a navigation system).

Meanwhile, the improved Limited model has a Smart Key System on four doors and trunk with remote illuminated entry function and puddle lamps, ventilated and heated front seats with variable heat setting, a Push Button Start, and power rear sunshade with auto return feature, as well as a JBL Synthesis AM/FM 6-disc CD changer with MP3/WMA playback capability and 660 watts of maximum power.

The MSRP of the 2012 Avalon is exclusive of the delivery, processing, and handling (DPH) charges that amount to $760. However, buyers should note that there is a variation in the DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States Toyota (GST). The 2012 Avalon will start to arrive at Toyota dealerships by mid-December.

Toyota ensures there had to be something fresh and better for the Avalon’s interiors. And for that, a full suite of technology was applied into the interior environment for improved connectivity and functionality.

2012 Avalon’s standard equipment now consists of audio devices, iPod and USB auxiliary connections (1/8”) as well as XM satellite radio (by subscription) and Bluetooth for music streaming and hands-free audio system. These audio systems work on simultaneous devices and can be controlled using the iPod or the switch at the steering wheel.

If there’s anything else, parking into a cramped driveway has never been easier with the navigation system’s backup guide straight from the LCD screen. Good thing, the Toyota Avalon is now equipped with the latest DVD navigation system that’s capable of helping you out whether on the road or at the parking lot. This feature already has the most up-to-the-minute database for better accuracy. Also, the user-friendly DVD navi- technology is complete with keyboard screen showing road signs and key destinations, which will be useful when traveling to new places.

In the meantime, the surround sound is backed up by a nine-speaker system for the standard variant. The limited variant consists of two-coil subwoofers, JBL Premium Synthesis audio system (660-watt) plus 12 speakers with digital amplifiers (12channels).

On the other hand, the sedan features an impressive 3.5L V6 engine with 24-valve dual overhead cam capable of running 268hp at 6200rpm. As if all these are not enough, better be ready for the new Avalon’s combined efficiency and performance derived from its multi-mode 6-speed Automatic Transmission. Aside from this, Toyota also equipped the 2012 model with dual VVT-I electronic valve control mechanism for better fuel economy and lesser CO2 emissions.
