About Toyota Avalon
For 2005, the Avalon was redesigned and introduced to the public at the North American International Auto Show in January 2005. It was released in February of 2005. Toyota claims to have slashed the Avalon’s manufacturing development period from 29.5 to 18 months. In Europe and Japan, the third-generation Avalon was not available.
The third-generation Toyota Avalon was larger than previous models, with Calty style and a Cd=0.29 drag coefficient; it was also the first Toyota to adopt a single-piece wiper blade design. The redesign did away with the front bench seat, which was historically standard on large American sedans like Buicks and Cadillacs, and added a semi-flat rear floor to improve rear passenger comfort.
The Avalon was the first Toyota in the US market to feature Dual VVT-i in an all-new 3.5-liter 2GR-FE V6 engine that met ULEV certification and produced 280 horsepower (209 kW) with a 0–60 time of 6.0 seconds. A 5-speed sequential shift automatic was coupled to the engine. For the 2006 model year, output was reduced to 268 hp (200 kW) and torque was reduced to 248 lbft (336 Nm) due to changes in the SAE’s testing standards. The actual power output remained unchanged.
The Avalon was available in four trim levels: XL (basic), Touring, XLS, and Limited. The XL variant came with 16-inch alloy wheels, while other trims had 17-inch wheels. The Touring and Limited models were equipped with performance tires.
The XL has dual-environment automated temperature controls as well as audio and climate controls positioned on the steering wheel. The Touring trim had a faux aluminum and all-black leather inside, a sport-tuned suspension, special powder-coated gray wheels, and a spoiler installed on the trunk lip. Standard cargo nets, a six-disc CD changer, a power sliding-glass moonroof, electrochromic auto dimming rear-view and driver’s side-view mirrors, a four-way power passenger seat, and a HomeLink transceiver were all added to the XLS. Air-ventilated seats with a power driver’s seat cushion length adjuster, Toyota’s Smart Key System with keyless push-button start and entry, a quieter acoustic windshield, rain-sensing windshield wipers, an upgraded 12-speaker JBL audio system, “in-glass” LED turn signals on the side mirrors, and a wood-trimmed steering wheel and shift gear lever were all available on the Limited trim level.
