The really exciting addition, though, is the Avalon and Avalon hybrid’s new powertrains that will mean more power and efficiency. The 2019 Toyota Avalon will now have two new engine options: a 3.5-liter V6 and a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder Toyota Hybrid System. The V6 is the most efficient engine the Avalon has ever had without having to sacrifice any of its power or performance thanks to the applications of a Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide variable valve timing system.
But, not everything is changed, like the Toyota Safe Sense (TSS-P) suite of safety systems and technologies will remain standard on both Avalon models. The TSS-P suite includes features like Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Automatic High Beams among others.
