Avalon Specials

The Award-Winning Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon is a luxury car without the luxury price, is filled with lots of features, and has won awards for safety, price, and value. 

 

The Toyota Avalon has always had unique styling with a luxurious and modern interior. This large car offers an agility that even some of its pricier rivals don't have. Under the hood, it packs a punch with high horsepower and a smooth and responsive automatic transmission. If you want an environmentally friendly vehicle, then the hybrid version is going to be exactly what you need, as it pairs an electric motor and a 4-cylinder engine. 

 

As a car that is outfitted for comfort, you can't go wrong if you choose the Avalon for your daily commute or for road trips. The potent V6 engine, high-tech cabin, and advanced safety features make it a great performer for a large car.

 

It is no wonder that the Avalon is the flagship sedan of Toyota. Toyota has put a lot of time and care into the interior and exterior design of the vehicle. All this effort has made it ideal for car buyers in any age group, including those looking for a solid family car.

The 2017 Toyota Avalon versus the Previous Model

The 2017 Toyota Avalon comes with some great features. It has maintained Toyota's premium luxury quality and still doesn't come with a luxury price tag. Toyota has upped the ante with the 2017 model by adding Safety Sense P, which is packed full of safety features. Previously, Safety Sense was an option, but it now comes standard on all Avalon trims. By the end of 2017, Safety Sense P will be available on nearly all Toyota models. 

 

This safety package is a true standout. It includes such safety features as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, automatic high beams, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Pedestrian Detection, and a Pre-Collision System. If this seems like a lot, factor in the included Toyota Star Safety System, which has Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, an Antilock Brake System, and Smart Stop Brakes. Factor in the 10 standard airbags, and you have a wildly safe car. It is so safe that it earned the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.

 

Another change is the engine, as the 2017 has a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 with Dual VVT-I under the hood. This gives you 248 pound-feet of torque and 268 horsepower. The full-size car is a fast accelerator with decent fuel economy. The car has normal, eco, and sport driving modes. Sport mode gives a better throttle response and better electric power steering. The shift points are also raised. The throttle is blipped on downshifts. Eco improves fuel efficiency by balancing certain components of the car.

The Impressive History of the Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon has a nice history that includes many redesigns and upgrades. The car was introduced in 1994 and had front bench seating, allowing for six passengers. By 1997, airbags came standard. In 1998, the car received a mid-cycle refresh. From the very beginning, it had a lot of horsepower under the hood at 200 horses. 

  

During the second generation from 1999 to 2004, the car saw a facelift with two trims available. The trims were the XL and the more upscale XLS. The car still allowed for six passengers but introduced larger wheels, dual climate control, and power driver and passenger seats, and it was the first car with an 115V AC power inverter. This feature was dropped with the third generation despite some Toyota models still having an inverter.

 

The third generation began in 2004 for the 2005 model year. It had a complete redesign that featured a more sophisticated and sleek exterior. The car increased in size and had four trims available. This was the generation when LED turn signals, a 12-speaker sound system, reclining rear seats, and a host of options were introduced. The options include remote engine start, stability control, HD lighting, and Dynamic Laser Cruise Control.

 

The fourth generation began in 2012, and the redesign was very impressive. In 2013, the hybrid model was introduced, giving buyers a more fuel-efficient choice.
