The company’s flagship sedan is about to get a completely new version, which should come as 2019 Toyota Avalon. According to latest reports, the new model will have a premiere at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. Most of the car experts believe that this redesign is crucial for the model’s future if we consider recent slow sales. With new design and features, we could expect that the famous sedan will consolidate itself on the market. To remind you, this mode is in production for about 22 years.
It came in 1995, as a replacement for the Cressida. The current model is in the fourth generation. It came in 2012 and received one refresh two years ago. For the next generation, we don’t expect some radical changes. The 2019 Avalon will keep the same base formula, but we expect to see improvements in terms of chassis, engine, styling, interior design etc.
2019 Toyota Avalon redesign
So far, we didn’t manage to get some more precise details about the 2019 Toyota Avalon. It is for sure that the new model will have the premiere at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. We can just presume that the company will keep a familiar formula. This means a classic full-size sedan design with FWD layout and atmospheric engine. Also, we could see some hybrid version in the offer.
On the other side, we could see some nice improvements in terms of chassis. New suspension, brakes, and other parts should provide better driving experience. The new 2019 Toyota Avalon should also come with more standard equipment, especially in terms of hi-tech features. Various reports suggest that the new generation will include things like dual-panel moonroof and head-up display. Of course, we are about to see a better-looking interior, with more sophisticated dashboard layout.
2019 Toyota Avalon styling and interior design
You definitely should not expect something special with the new styling. The 2019 Toyota Avalon is about to keep a similar shape. Of course, there is a whole bunch of new details to come. It will adopt brand’s new design language. So, should see a similar front end as on the new Camry, which came last year. This includes new headlights, a large gaping grille, and probably a clamshell hood.
When it comes to the interior design, 2019 Avalon will come with some smaller improvement in terms of space. Although the same wheelbase, it will come with a little bit better use of space that will provide more legroom. In terms of styling, expect a new dashboard layout. Compared to the new Camry, it should come in a little bit more conventional manner. This basically means less digital and more analog commands.
2019 Toyota Avalon engines
In terms of powertrain, the new 2019 Toyota Avalon will come in a familiar manner. It will continue with the familiar FWD layout and V6 engine. For this occasion, we could see some improvements on the famous 3.5-liter unit. According to latest reports, it should use the same version that outputs the new Camry, which is good for about 300 horses.
There is also a new 8-speed automatic transmission to come. Just like the current model, the new generation will also include an optional hybrid powertrain. More precise details are yet to come.
2019 Toyota Avalon release date and price
The 2019 Toyota Avalon will have its premiere at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. So, we can presume that the production model will come during next year. The current generation costs somewhere between 34.000 and 44.000 dollars and we don’t expect bigger changes in price with the next-generation model.
Competition in the segment is tough. So, there are models like Nissan Maxima, Kia Cadenza, Chevy Impala, Dodge Charger and many others.
