What to expect from 2023 Toyota Avalon? Well, one thing for sure: Toyota has been busy making improvements with their products and lines. Avalon is known as this solid and sturdy design that exudes the vibe of confidence and good look. But Toyota wants to refresh its look, considering the tougher competition in the auto market. So, what can you expect from the new Avalon?
There would be several changes, especially on the exterior sides, to freshen up the vehicle. The changes aren’t grandeur or extravagant, but they are visible. They DO affect the overall physical look of the ride, improving its aesthetic factor without compromising function. The front area is unique with big grille that is paired with chrome accents of Toyota, and it is still used for the front fascia. The narrow LED headlights would be coming with auto on and off function and also auto leveling ability. The DRL lights can help you achieve better drive. In short, every little detail of the Avalon would be highly improved and elevated.
The Interior Updates
On the inside, there are several updates too happening to this 2023 Toyota Avalon. Premium materials would be paired with leather layer. It would also have ergonomic comfort for the passenger and the plush feel of the cabin. The dash would be covered in leather with some soft-touch materials. Not to mention that there are also new technologies that would be coming along too, such as Commander Control, for better management of the techs, as well as Cruise Control and others.
Engine and Performance
The 2023 Toyota Avalon is likely be coming with V6 unit with 3.5 liter capacity, which is the same one used in the 2021 model. It is able to generate 301 hp and 267 Nm of torque. It pairs quite nicely with front wheel driving system and auto 8 speed transmission. With combination of powerful engine and compact size, the Avalon feels nice and somewhat dynamic for urban street exploration.
In the current model, the base trim doesn’t have all wheel driving system, but it’s available as the optional choice for XLE and Touring. If you go with the AWD, it would be paired up with smaller inline-4 unit with 2.5 liter capacity that churns around 205 hp and 185 Nm of torque. Transmission would be the same. However, it’s expected that the upcoming 2023 model will provide AWD in all trims. And they are likely coming with stronger the V6 unit. Hopefully, the driving power won’t disappoint anyone.
Price and Release Date
The new Avalon gets ‘only’ several updates, especially compared to the previous productions. However, the minor updates won’t sacrifice the fun and comfort of driving around the vehicle. Considering that it’s set as a carryover ride, the price will likely stay the same to the previous ones – or not straying afar from it. There is no official confirmation about the launch date either, but many have speculated that the 2023 Toyota Avalon will be available around summer rime in 2022.
