The 2008 Toyota Avalon is designed for a cushy, comfortable ride and impressive interior space above all else.

Toyota's full-size Avalon returns for 2008 with a host of changes to its drivetrain, its front end, and its cabin.

 

A 3.5-liter V-6 engine with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and a dual-stage variable intake manifold is standard on the Avalon once again. It generates 268 horsepower, making it Toyota's most powerful V-6 ever, and it drives the front wheels via a new six-speed automatic transmission. Toyota has also upgraded the brakes for this model year for better response, less fade, and shorter stopping distances.

 

Front and side curtain airbags are standard in all Avalons, along with a driver-side knee airbag, and anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control.

 

The XL, XLS, Limited, and Touring versions of the Avalon are available once more. For 2008, all Avalons get a new face with revamped bumpers, headlamps and grille, along with new tint for the taillamps. Touring and XLS models get 17-inch alloy wheels, while Limited models gain chrome door handles. The XLS and Limited models get new woodgrain and a power passenger seat, while the Touring wears metallic trim on its dash.

 

Remote keyless entry is standard this year, as is a new AM/FM/CD changer with nine speakers, MP3 capability, and an auxiliary port for iPods. Major options include a DVD-based navigation system, a 360-watt JBL premium audio system, Dynamic Cruise Control, heated and ventilated seats, and a remote starter function.

 

Prices for the new Avalon range from $27,075 for the XL to $34,415 for the Limited.
