The crowning jewel of Toyota’s model lineup, the Toyota Avalon exudes a sophistication that is hard to find in a sedan these days. The smooth ride adapts to the road thanks to unique suspension and the interior’s high-quality materials showcase a sense of craftsmanship that could make any driver proud. With all this luxury, you would think it would be difficult to make a great thing even better. Well, Toyota did just that.
Toyota Offers Premium Level Value Without the Premium Price Tag
Toyota thinks ahead, we all know that. And while it’s not mandated until the year 2022, Toyota is pre-emptively installing Toyota Safety Sense onto nearly all of their 2017 models. The Avalon is no different, getting this upgrade on all trim levels. Toyota Safety Sense brings new high-tech safety features to their cars, including Automatic High Beam, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist.
The 2017 Toyota Avalon Comes With Choice of Powertrains
Unique to its segment, the new Avalon will come with the choice of either a powerful V6 engine or a gas-sipping hybrid one. The power engine comes in the form of a 3.5-liter DOCH V6 with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence, producing 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 rpm. Pair that with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters with three driving modes and you have sport performance in a luxury sedan.
The Avalon Hybrid naturally leads the way in fuel-efficiency, boasting 40 MPG combined fuel economy with its Hybrid Synergy Drive system that combines a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with a high-torque electric motor. Switching between gas and engine, the 2017 Avalon Hybrid channels in the perfect amount of electric and fuel to give you the most efficient ride possible.
The 2017 Toyota Avalon is set to release during the first quarter of 2017. If you would like to check our current Chevy Avalon inventory, please schedule a test drive or stop by Bill Alexander Toyota in Yuma, AZ.
