A new Avalon full-size sedan debuted in early 2005 with added power and refinement and more elegant styling inside and out. It comes in four trim levels, with all versions being fitted with a new 3.5-liter V-6 engine that utilizes Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and a dual-stage variable intake manifold to generate 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is 33 percent more muscle than the version it replaces and is Toyota's most powerful V-6 ever. It drives the front wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission with a sequential shift function that allows the driver to shift gears manually. Offering a smooth and quiet ride across the line, the Touring version features a more firmly tuned suspension for added handling prowess. A host of safety and chassis-control systems includes side-curtain airbags, a driver's knee airbag, anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and available Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control with Brake Assist. Available amenities include Toyota's keyless Smart Key system, Dynamic Cruise Control, heated and ventilated seats, and a remote starter function.

This is my 6 Avalon (2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2012) and those are in order. You'll notice I had a 2013, which I quickly (3700 miles on it) traded for a new 2012. I traded because the 2013 was Rough, loud and... + More »
