2019 Toyota Avalon

When is the Release Date of the 2019 Toyota Avalon?

The newest 2019 Toyota Avalon is basically a large sedan model. It could be compared with the Lexus ES sedan as it basically has the same treats and features. But what sets these two apart. The price of the upper trim Avalon even goes beyond the luxury Lexus models. So why should you go for the updated Avalon? Well one thing is for sure and that is that the 2019 Toyota Avalon is a big car. Its dimensions are enormous and the vehicle is pretty big when you look at it. This gives us the comfort on the interior that we need to feel even more comfortable and also makes the ride a lot better and balanced. Secondly, Toyota has added an array of features which are much easier to use and are more appropriate during rides.

So when are we going to see this model in action? According to the latest information, the 2019 Avalon is set to appear for sale by the end of 2018, and it is still being released as a 2019 model. The vehicle is also going to make an appearance in the US right about the same time. It is actually pretty exciting to see the changes and the updates the car received. This is undoubtedly the most handsome Toyota model ever designed. By all means, it is also one of the leading sedan vehicles on the market viewing it as a whole.

How much is the price of the 2019 Toyota Avalon Going to be?

If we look at the base price of the 2019 Toyota Avalon, it is pretty suitable. If we look at what the vehicle presents and has, the price speaks for its self. You will need to pay around $32,285 to get your hands on one of these. But, when it comes to higher trim levels of the car, it is where things get a bit more interesting. For instance, the Limited trim costs $42,195 which is a price which exceeds the Lexus ES one by a mile. So is this car worth it? Well of course it is. Even though you can get a luxury Lexus car for a smaller price, the Avalon is meant to look good, feel good and give you everything that a luxury vehicle could. The price is not something that should put you off from this car as it is very much worth the amount specified.

Some Rumors for the Future

With the release of the 2019 Toyota Avalon, we also learned that this marks the end of the current generation of models. The next vehicle which they are planning to make will be a next-gen model. But details about this one are still in the making and it will take quite a long time for this vehicle to be made. But the initial rumor is that they have decided to utilize a new platform for the future Avalon vehicles. This is not something to think about too much as the Toyota Camry has already started using it. The new Toyota Global Architecture (TNGA) platform should update the model very nicely and it is a perfect way to start the next generation vehicles. Until we wait for the future, we can enjoy the 2019 Toyota Avalon update. It may be the last model of its generation, but it also makes it one of the best ones that have been designed.

2019 Toyota Avalon and its Exterior Changes

With the newest awaited 2019 Toyota Avalon, come some plentiful changes for the exterior. The updates are going to help with the revision of the car and will keep it competitive until the next generation comes. The changes made include a revised front and rear fascia that adds a new front grille. Actually the lower grille is wider and the upper grille is narrower. The turn signals are also completely new. The back end of the car adds some refined new lights. You can also notice the chrome accents on the bumper as well. The Touring trim will now add dark-grey-painted 18-inch wheels. There are also new LED lights and LED daytime running lights as well. New for the XLE and XLE Plus trims are the 17-inch wheels. The changes are not that extensive as you would hope, but it keeps the model modern and handsome.

What About the Colors?

When it comes to updating the 2019 Toyota Avalon, colors are a big deal. Unfortunately, we are not going to get a special change here. It is pretty disappointing when you see that they did not add any new colors. But what they did is to offer the optional ones available as a standard choice. Although not getting any new color options is not a welcoming thing when you get a new model, it is still nice that there are some newer options attainable to you. Some drivers will be thrilled with the fact that there are some that they can use now.

Will the Size of the 2019 Toyota Avalon Change?

The newest 2019 Toyota Avalon car is going to keep the dimensions. Actually, the Avalon is one of the biggest sedans on the market. Its dimensions are something that make the vehicle unique. The established dimensions have been made a while back and they are kept that way for a reason. It would be unnecessary to change the size this time and they may even keep them for the next-generation vehicle. At this point the size of the car is good and the full length of 195.3 in and a wheelbase of 111.0 in is a standard for all trims. The height is 57.5 in and the width is 72.2 in. This keeps the interior volume at 102-104 cu ft, which is perhaps the best out of all sedans on the market. The cargo is pretty roomy as well and offers a payload of 14-16 cu ft.

What did They do with the Interior of the 2019 Toyota Avalon?

If you liked the previous Avalon, you will certainly enjoy the 2019 Toyota Avalon model. This is a kind of a staple to all of the Avalon vehicles. They are known for being packed with great feat use and fabulous comfort. This one is not going to be an exception, but the only thing is that there are not many innovations made. The Avalon got light grey interior color with grey accent stitching across the lineup. The higher trims, like the XLE and XLE Plus trim levels, will offer 7-inch Entune Audio Plus screen as standard and it will also add woodgrain accents. The latter feature is also available as standard and can be seen in any of the cars. Unfortunately, everything else is pretty much the same. Some bigger changes will probably happen for the next generation models. But the 2019 Toyota Avalon is still at the very top of the market when it comes to the interior look.

Keeping the Engine Specs Similar for the 2019 Toyota Avalon

There was no mention about the engine changes for the 2019 Toyota Avalon car. In fact, there is no need to make them as well. Perhaps, and it probably will, the future models will get updated with a totally new powertrain. For now, the car is going to simply transfer the current lineup and keep the ones that it has. These of course include the 3.5-liter V-6 as a base model which makes 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The transmission choices remains the six-speed, paddle-shift transmission. This is pretty suitable for the vehicle now and it has even for years now. The output is also pretty decent if you look at it from the standpoint of the sedan model. There are probably many changes that await us under the hood of the car, but these are going to wait until the next-generation Avalon comes.

2019 Toyota Avalon Top Speed and 0-60 mph

With the same type of engines choice for the 2019 Toyota Avalon, the performance is going to remain the same. These are not going to hamper the vehicle’s development and keeping them the same is probably not going to affect sales. For the time being the car is able to speed up to 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 130 mph. This is pretty standard for a sedan model and keeps the vehicle grounded and at the same time enables it to perform very well for a model of this kind.

What about the Fuel Economy of the 2019 Toyota Avalon

The 2019 Toyota Avalon transfers the fuel consumption specs of the previous model. With pretty much the same kind of a setup under the hood, there is no chance for the fuel usage to improve. It is still pretty decent when it comes to a sedan model. With the current setup the vehicle has an EPA rating of 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Some of the leaked XLE’s details include a 7” screen, a new front grille, a standard Entune Audio Plus system, new turn signals, and Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link. However, the engine department remains unchanged and features the existing 3.5L V6 base engine.

We all know too well the conservative nature with which the Avalon has characterized its existence. But don’t get me the wrong way, the Avalon has rather shied away from fashion and style fads in favor of comfort and no-nonsense design. However, things seem to be moving in the opposite direction with the 2013 design which brought about subtle changes including sporty handling and a stylish exterior design.

Despite Toyota undertaking such a massive risk, the vehicle still managed to keep things alive and gave it a modern appeal and a pleasant driving character. In addition it comes with a serene and comfortable interior in addition to offering plenty of space for its passengers. Plenty of top-notch features are available even for its base, for instance, the base comes with fitted with upscale features like leather upholstery, keyless entry and ignition, and smartphone app integration.

Still, the new 2017 Toyota Avalon comes with some few features worth lamenting over. Most notable one is the firm ride quality that might upset traditional Avalon buyers. Fortunately though, the segment comes with a plethora of choices. They include Kia Cadenza 2017, 2017 Chevrolet Impala, and 2017 Chrysler 300 sedan.

The new model is the freshest in a line of top-selling Toyota sedans first introduced in the United States almost seven decades ago. It’s a soulless appliance, they will tell you, and is one of the chief reasons why the Corolla has difficulty in commanding bountiful respect from most car reviewers.  Where is the flare and excitement? Where are the styling cues? Where is the spirited performance? Are some of the questions that you might encounter if you dare call yourself a Corolla fanatic.

The Corolla, now in its 12th generation, has been one of Toyota’s best-selling sedans and the trend seems to continue even in the future judging by what Toyota has done with the 2020 model. It comes with plenty of strengths inside and out. Dare we say, the overall style is new and brings a refreshing appeal to the classically staid small sedan class. The audio and climate controls are well laid out and are easy-to-use. We also like the way the cabin offers adequate head- and legroom and even 6-footers will be thrilled to drive one for a weekend getaway.

EPA fuel economy ratings are amazing and very few vehicles in its class would dare pose any competition there. Throw in a high-resale value, and you my friend, have got yourself the ingredients needed to claim a bragging right trophy.
