2019 Toyota Avalon is looking more premium than ever

The next-generation Toyota Avalon has been refreshed but it still sticks to its purpose of offering generous space, while being stylish and functional. In fact, the Avalon offers quite a bit more than the Camry. The best part is that the 2019 model year will have more horsepower and improved fuel efficiency.

The 2019 Avalon has changed in terms of size; it is now longer, wider, and lower. The wheelbase has increased by 2.0 inches, while its length grew by 0.7 inch. Height has been lowered by an inch, while width increased by 0.8. This instantly gives the passenger cabin more space. Also, the model is now based on the TNGA platform, similar to the Prius and Camry.

Though the Avalon may remind you of a Camry, it still looks more aggressive, with running LED headlights, and LED taillights with sequential activation design. The XSE and the Touring models get cooler touches like a piano black trim, a trunk spoiler, quad exhaust tips, among other elements. Overall, drag coefficient decreases by 0.1.

2019 Toyota Avalon teased ahead of 2018 Detroit Auto Show

Toyota has been driving around the 2019 Toyota Avalon in camouflage for quite some time now, but still, none of us have seen it without its cover. However, we will not have to wait much longer as the revamped Toyota full-sizer will make its debut next month at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It will feature an all new design as well as a new platform technology.

Apart from the teaser photo that gives us a detailed look of the new sharper and slimmer headlights, that remind us of the mid-sized Camry, the automaker has not shared any more details about the new car. Based on the spy photos we saw this summer, we could tell that the front fascia will have a much larger air intake too. Overall, the Avalon would look a little more aggressive in style, which will actually help it get more attention.

Just like any other new Toyota vehicle, the Avalon will be based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) for its underpinnings, which will be featured on the new Camry as well. We think that this model will carry quite a lot of power too based on the prototypes we have seen that were designed with quad exhaust tips. However, sources say that two of the exhaust tips from the prototypes are not real as part of a plan to throw off spy photographers. We expect the Avalon to have the same 3.5 liter V6 engine or a four-cylinder hybrid. While they’re nothing new, both will bring power to all four wheels.

2016 Toyota Avalon introduced at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show

Toyota’s refreshed 2016 Avalon arrived in the Windy City at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show and is ready to go on sale later this fall. As you can see from the photos, the vehicle shows a wider lower front grille with narrow upper grille design, new LED headlights, redesigned turn signals which replace the fog lights, redesigned LED taillights and a chromed rear bumper accent.

According to Toyota, the V6-powered models will be available with a choice of five distinct grades: XLE, XLE Plus, XLE Premium, Limited and Touring. Customers looking for a hybrid version will be able to choose from three separate grades: XLE Plus, XLE Premium and Limited.

XLE and XLE Plus models come as standard with redesigned 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7-inch Entune Audio Plus screen, premium woodgrain dash ornamentation as well as the tire-specific Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

Kia Cadenza actually better than the Toyota Avalon in Consumer Reports list of large sedans

The Kia Cadenza ranked second on Consumer Reports magazine's list of top large sedans. The Cadenza actually tied in the magazine’s ranking for large sedans with the Toyota Avalon, the former top-ranker in the list. Of the 12 large sedans rated by Consumer Reports, the 2014 Chevrolet Impala came out first.

Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, remarked that the Cadenza banishes any lingering thoughts that Kia is just a manufacturer of cheap, unrefined cars.

Consumer Reports last ranked large sedans in 2007, with the Avalon lording over other competing units. But now, American and South Korean models are topping the publication’s list. General Motors renewed its commitment on quality after suffering from a financial collapse in 2009, allowing it to create new products that satisfy consumers’ appetite for quality offerings.

Toyota makes its first entry into the livery market with an all-new Avalon model, which was introduced at the 2012 New York Auto Show. While most of the 70,000 full-size Japanese sedans will be available to retail customers, 1,000 will be offered as livery cars. The Avalon model would be the most affordable of the models in the livery market.

It would also be the only model that’s in front-wheel drive version. Toyota will be going up against the Chrysler 300, Cadillac XTS, and Lincoln MKT. The heated front seats will be removed from the Avalon XLE-based livery model.

Instead, it will be equipped with heated rear seats and rear climate controls. The other luxury amenities that would be taken out from the XLE Premium hybrid include the backup camera, moonroof, heated front seats, and integrated garage door opener. The two models will make use of black paint and black leather interior.

Toyota has unveiled that the starting price of the 2013 Toyota Avalon is at $31,785 (which includes a $795 destination charge), while the Avalon Hybrid is priced from $36,350. The 2013 Avalon sedan is available with either a traditional gasoline powertrain or a hybrid version. There are four different trim levels available, with increasing equipment levels.

The $31,785 Avalon XLE is powered by the 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine and rides on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels. It features a touchscreen audio system with eight speakers, and powered heated front seats.

With this starting price, the new Avalon is actually cheaper than the 2012 Toyota Avalon by $2170. The 2012 Avalon Limited has a price tag of $37,105. The Avalon XLE Premium is priced at $33,990 with the gasoline engine or $36,350 when it has the hybrid powertrain, which merges a 2.5-liter inline-four and an electric motor.

Three very differently tuned Toyota Avalons will be displayed at the upcoming 2012 SEMA Show. The customized Avalon TRD edition will get parts from Toyota Racing Development (TRD) to provide what represents a major increase in power. The resulting bump is the result of the use of several components such as a supercharger for a 3.5-liter V6.

In addition, it features lowering springs, high-performance brakes, and a set of 19-inch alloy wheels. Its interior will also get an upgrade. It will feature perforated leather seats, a special headliner and a new stereo. Then there’s the Avalon HV edition, which utilizes a lot of the same equipment from TRD as the previous car. However, it uses a hybrid drivetrain instead of a supercharged six.

The third Avalon is created by DUB Magazine with a custom body kit, mesh grille, lowered suspension and 22-inch wheels. In addition, it features tinted headlights. Its interior is colored to match. It also boasts of suede seats, a black leather headliner and trunk that’s filled with three big subwoofers.

It’s rumored that a sports-tuned version of the Toyota Avalon will soon be introduced. The redesigned Avalon is credited for putting the model on the map when it comes to styling. Autoblog has reported that three sporty Avalon sedans will be unveiled at SEMA this October. Toyota officials said that a sports-tuned model may enter the lineup and be offered alongside the hybrid and V6 models.

The new Avalon features paddle shifters and to optimize its engine, it gets a sports-mode programmed into the transmission. The 3.5 liter V6 on this front-wheel-drive sedan delivers 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. According to Randy Stephens, the chief-engineer of the Avalon (which is made in Kentucky and developed in Michigan) said that Toyota has modified two of the three customized SEMA Avalons in-house.

One or both cars will be available with a TRD supercharger kit offered in the Australian market. Apparently, this is identical to the unit that the Lotus Evora S used. The styling of these customized Avalons will be bland compared to what’s usually seen at the SEMA show.

If the current Avalon offers only the 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, the 2013 Toyota Avalon will also offer a hybrid version when it will go on sale this fall. The all-new 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid was revealed today, together with a 2.5-liter, Atkinson-cycle, four-cylinder engine and a 244.8-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack as well as a pair of electric motor/generators within the transaxle.

According to the official press release, the Avalon Hybrid delivers a total system output of 200 horsepower and is rated by EPA at 40 mpg in the city, and a 39 mpg on the highway for a combined 40 mpg. Just like any other hybrid model from Toyota, the Avalon Hybrid offers three unique modes of operation: EV, ECO and SPORT.

The EV mode transforms the car into an electric vehicle, which can be drive for up to one mile at speeds up to 25 mph. The ECO mode engages the gasoline motor but reduces throttle response and HVAC output in order to improve efficiency. The Sport mode is the least fuel-efficient as the engine gives its bed using more fuel. The battery is found in the vehicle trunk behind the rear seats, which means the Avalon Hybrid is still providing ample trunk space.

Toyota is hoping that the significantly different design of the 2013 Avalon will attract more consumers and would throw away public notions that this is a full-sized sedan with a dull design. According to Bob Carter, Toyota Division general manager, the 2013 Avalon has caught Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda's vision for more exciting vehicles.

The car’s design, particularly its fastback “kinetic energy” lines, was planned at Toyota's Calty studio in Southern California. According to Carter, the Avalon was engineered at Toyota's technical center, in Ann Arbor, Mich., making it the first Toyota vehicle entirely developed in North America. The Toyota Division general manager added that the vehicle will have 90 percent North American content when it hits the assembly lines in Georgetown, Ky.

The 2013 Avalon will have the same wheelbase as the current model at 111 inches, but it will be 2.3 inches shorter as Toyota reduces its front and rear overhangs. According to the company, the 2013 Avalon will be powered by a V-6 engine, with no details about its specs. The company expects the 2013 Avalon to be 120 lbs lighter than the current model.

This is the all-new 2013 Toyota Avalon! As the dealers said in this post, the change is dramatic and we have to say that we fell in love with the 2013 Avalon. The first visual impact with the 2013 Avalon shows square Double-eye PES (Projector Ellipsoid System) headlamps with HID (High-Intensity Discharge) and elegant DRL (Daytime Running Lights) but also a completely new front grille and redesigned front bumper.

The rear end features LED tail lamps integrated with the revised rear-body styling. The redesigned rear bumper also shows dual tailpipe outlets in order to complete the rear end. The new Avalon offers a premium interior highlighted by abundant rear seat legroom, while featuring a myriad of available features.

According to Toyota, the 2013 Avalon interior features premium materials and a high degree of craftsmanship to offer an upscale experience. The redesigned center console features smoked chrome-metallic accents but Toyota didn’t stop here, as these are also found on the instrument panel, door panel and steering wheel surfaces.

Expect 19 new models of Toyota vehicles in 2012, including the fuel-efficient Toyota Avalon full-sized sedan, to arrive in November, a dealer attending the annual National Automobile Dealers Association convention revealed. Toyota executives also showed NADA dealers with a picture of the to-be-released Avalon, which the company plans to unveil in April 2012 at the New York auto show. 

According to Toyota executives, the 2013 Avalon boasts of fuel economy as good as, or better, than a Fiat 500, which smokes out a combined 33 mpg in city and highway driving using a five-speed manual transmission. Toyota also showed a picture of a concept fuel cell vehicle, which the company plans to put into production around ten years from now.

Bob Carter, general manager of Toyota Motor Sales USA, revealed that this year, new models will account for 40% of the cars that dealers will receive, compared to just seven percent in 2011.

Speaking at the Automotive News World Congress, the Vice President of Toyota’s Brand Sales in the US, Bob Carter revealed the fact that the Japanese manufacturer is planning a new hybrid model that will hit the U.S. market later this year. This announcement comes after Toyota launched the 2013 Prius C at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, but it appears that the new car will be something different, very different.

According to Mr. Carter, the new hybrid car will be roomier than a Bmw X5, faster than a diesel-powered Volkswagen and will offer a better fuel consumption than the subcompact Fiat 500. For reference, the Fiat 500 has a fuel consumption of around 35 mpg while a Volkswagen Jetta powered by a 2.0-liter TDI engine delivering 140 hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 8.5 seconds.

The car is further described as “near-luxury”. We don’t know what this means but we do expect more than “standard, but with a leather option”. Moreover, the new car appears to be the new Avalon as it is designed and engineered in the USA.

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).

[Update - the 2013 Toyota Avalon was unveiled - read all about it here] - To regain leadership, Toyota has created a plan to release a lineup of new or redesigned products within the next two years. Under the timeframe that Toyota has given, there will be at least 10 products that will appear in dealerships by the end of 2012.

Toyota will undertake a significant change in how it develops its products. Toyota will now lengthen the platform cadence. What Toyota did previously was for the models to be redesigned after every five years and for there to be a slight change in the fascia after the third year. With this new approach, the cycle could be extended to six years but at the midpoint, there will be more significant sheet metal revisions as well as powertrain upgrades.

Toyota revealed that the styling of the global subcompact Yaris will be more aggressive. It will arrive this fall, after having been slightly delayed as its Iwate plant was damaged by the March 11 earthquake. This new version will feature a 98.8-inch wheelbase, making it longer than the existing model by about two inches.

Toyota will offer the 2010 Avalon in three grades: the standard XL, the XLS, and the top-of-the-range Limited. The 2010 model is the third generation of the model first rolled out in 1995. A 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque will power all three models.

To get outstanding performance at all engine speeds, Toyota installed the Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (Dual VVT-i) and a dual-stage variable intake manifold.

The engine will be mated to a six-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). The car is able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds. The car is reported to have a fuel consumption rating of 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
