About Toyota Avalon
Toyota Avalon is a full-size sedan manufactured by Toyota since 1994. The first Toyota Avalon was introduced in early 1994 for the 1995 model year. It inherits Toyota's inconsistent high quality and has received compliments from many authorities. For example, IIHS award the Toyota Avalon as Top Safety Pick accolade; Car and Driver, Edmound.com, Motor Trend and Automobile Magazine, Consumer Reports all rated it at the top of sedans.

A redesigned Toyota Avalon revealed at the 2005 North American International Auto Show marked the beginning of the third generation (XX30; 2004-2012). It came in four trim levels: the standard (base) XL, Touring, XLS and Limited. However, all trims were available in a 3.5 L 2GR-FE V6 engine coupled with a 5-speed and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Then at the 2012 New York International Auto Show, a redesigned Toyota Avalon started the fourth generation (XX40; 2012-present). It now adds a hybrid gasoline-electric model and a 2.5 L 2AR-FXE inline 4-cylinder engine. Only available transmission is the 6-speed automatic transmission.
