What You Need to Know About the 2019 Toyota Avalon 

If you’re looking to learn more about this award-winning car, you’ve come to the right place! 

The 2019 Toyota Avalon is the fifth-generation of the flagship sedan of Toyota, with this being the first redesign since 2013. Along with a new, sleek exterior design that showcases power and style, the 2019 Avalon also features numerous upgrades and modifications. 

The 2019 Toyota Avalon offers two new powertrains, one for those looking for performance and one for those who want more efficiency. First, there’s the new 3.5-liter V6 that offers more power than its predecessors while also offering a better efficiency thanks to its fuel direct injection and Continuously-Variable Transmission. 

Then, there’s a new 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder with Toyota Hybrid System, keeping the tradition of the 2019 Avalon being the only full hybrid vehicle in its segment.  

No release date for the 2019 Toyota Avalon has been given yet, but Toyota has vaguely said it will hit dealer floors in the spring of 2018. So, we’re getting close! Check back on our blog as we update it with more information as we get closer to its release date!
