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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
