What is New and Different About the 2019 Avalon?
About the 2019 Toyota Avalon
The 2019 Toyota Avalon has officially arrived on our showroom floor. The fifth generation of the iconic sedan has a freshly re-designed exterior, some serious technology improvements (did someone say Apple CarPlay?) and great performance features. The completely refreshed Avalon is more bold and dynamic than ever and comes in 4 gas models and 3 hybrid models.
The 2019 Avalon has been redesigned from the outside in, starting with the longer, wider and lower exterior of the vehicle. Upper and lower grilles have been merged to create one large, bold grille that comes in a clean piano black on the Touring model. Limited and Touring trim levels feature LED headlights and taillights with eye-catching dynamic auxiliary turn signals. Touring also comes standard with stunning new 19-inch 3-D machined and gloss black finished wheels. Keeping performance stylish, the Avalon also features a dual exhaust with quad chrome tips.
Other people enjoy the outside of your car, while you enjoy the inside. All the information you need is at the touch of your fingertips, thanks to Avalon’s Entune 3.0 system with a 9-inch multimedia touch-screen display. Swipe your way through the available apps including Apple CarPlay – a first for Toyota vehicles. Apple CarPlay allows you to pair your iPhone with your Entune system, where you can get directions from Apple Maps, make phone calls, send and receive text messages and listen to your favorite music. The five standard USB ports help you ensure that you’re always connected and powered up when you hit the road. Enjoy all of your favorite music through the available 1200 watt JBL audio system that comes with Clari-Fi and 14 speakers. Chilly day? Start your car from inside your house via your smartwatch or cell phone. Toyota Remote Connect has been improved so that you can use your smartwatch to locate your vehicle, start the engine and lock/unlock the doors.
The four gas trim levels start with the base model, XLE, and move up to XSE, Limited and Touring. Gas models feature a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers an impressive 301 hp at 6,600 rpm along with 267 lb. ft. of torque at 4,700 rpm. The hybrid trim levels allow you the convenience of a hybrid while still maintaining impressive performance. The hybrid system is rated for 215 hp and has an impressive EPA-estimated 43/44/44 MPG, compared to the 22/32/26 MPG of the gas model.
