Toyota has exposed a teaser image of what looks like the 2019 Toyota Avalon ahead of its global debut in January next year. The automaker shed some light on its new auto last Friday, giving us a hint at what to expect at the 2018 Detroit auto show. Apparently, the revived Avalon sedan is going to retain the two-tiered large grille, which we saw on the previous Avalon edition.
2019 Toyota Avalon – Exterior Design and Interior Cosmetics
Toyota’s revelation of the 2019 Toyota Avalon model on Friday was accompanied by a teaser image of the same. Although the picture appears dark and shadowy, it indicates how the redesigned Avalon will look like when it finally shows up at dealers next year. Besides, our spies have snapped the prototypes in the open, and they also provide a lot of cues.
The company is yet to publicize a lot of details, but we think the inbound Toyota Avalon will leverage the Toyota New Global Architecture. This platform also underpins such vehicles as the Prius, Camry, and C-HR. Our spy images show the car’s revamped headlights, which appear to have incredible light graphics. Given that the vehicle is devoid of visible cut lines, we expect it to showcase a clamshell hood.
The latest Avalon is going to convey an aggressive bumper, a sculpted hood and redesigned headlights with new Y-bone daytime running lights. Interestingly, its aggressive front bumper has side ducting that likely suggests it will be used for cooling. The 2019 Toyota Avalon would get a large, gaping grille that reflects what we can find on the overhauled 2018 Camry.
Toyota says it targets younger buyers with the 2019 Avalon. The Avalon has always been one of the Japanese manufacturer’s best-selling vehicles. We hope Toyota will only bring back that same polish to the auto bazaar early next year.
Inside, the new Toyota Avalon will come equipped with a variety of safety features. It will come with the brand’s Safety Sense technology. It bundles such things as autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.
2019 Toyota Avalon – Engine and Transmission
The Toyota Avalon 2019 powertrain is still a mystery, but Toyota could feature a V6 engine that yields slightly over 300 hp. The inbound Toyota Avalon is likely to get a 3.5-liter V6 powertrain that yields about 301hp and 267-lb.ft of torque. Toyota will equally retain its hybrid variant, which likely adheres to the new Camry Hybrid. Hence, a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine will get hooked to an electric motor. The system combines for a total output of up to 208 hp and delivers above 50 mpg combined.
2019 Toyota Avalon – Manufacturer’s Suggested Price and Global Debut
Finally, the 2019 Toyota Avalon will become an excellent vehicle for buyers in search of the absolute convenience. The incoming car will hit the global auto showrooms in January next year at the Detroit auto show. The price of the entry-level variant is about $35,000 while top-spec variants would have their prices in the $40,000 territory. The revived Toyota Avalon will take on the likes of Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300, Chevrolet Impala, and Nissan Maxima. We will be providing more news and feeds moving forward. So, stay tuned.
