Toyota Avalon And Camry To Have TRD Versions

The Toyota Camry and Avalon currently have XSE versions, which Toyota apparently doesn’t think is sporty enough. The Japanese automaker is now sending these two models to its performance-oriented TRD division.

The TRD versions of the Camry and Avalon will make an appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month, Toyota confirmed on Twitter.

The TRD division doesn’t have much experience tinkering with a Toyota sedan as it is mostly focused on the off-road-oriented TRD Pro trucks and SUVs, as well as the newly updated 86 TRD Special Edition sports car. Based on the teaser photos, the TRD versions will have more aggressive wheels and tires and a body kit with a red stripe.

Since this is a TRD version, the Avalon and Camry are expected to have a stiffer suspension tune, a sportier interior trim, and plenty of TRD badging.

Although both the Avalon and Camry are not lacking in power, we hope that there will be an update of engines. Currently, both offer a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes 301 horsepower, which is quite a significant amount for any front-wheel-drive sedan. To improve the output, the TRD configuration will need to add a sport exhaust. The power boost would be minimal, though, since too much power would not fit the front-wheel-drive configuration of the Camry and Avalon TRD.

There’s no competition in this segment except perhaps for the Ford Fusion Sport that makes 325 horsepower, the Buick Regal GS that produces 310 horses, and the Dodge Charger with its various V-8-powered variants. These three are the only larger mainstream four-door sedans with performance variants.

The Camry and Avalon TRD models will make their debut later this year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which starts on November 28. We expect it to have a starting price of $24,565.

4 Things To Know About The Interior Of The 2019 Toyota Avalon

To say that the 2019 Toyota Avalon is cool is an understatement. In luxury cars such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz, you will have to pay a premium price for the kind of snazzy, comfortable, and elegant interior we saw in the Avalon. But Toyota is best when it comes to this: providing a sophisticated interior without breaking your bank.

The fifth-generation Avalon brings to the table a premium approach for its interiors. Here are the four things we need to know about the snazzy new look of the Avalon’s cabin.

1. Elegant Center Console

The first thing you will notice about the Avalon’s interior is the flowing center console that arcs upward from the central tunnel in a singular and flowing bend. It looks clean, cohesive, and very, very elegant, almost like you needed to pay thousands of dollars just to get that look.

2. Quilted Upholstery

Forget about plastic. Forget about leather, either. The Avalon’s door panels are wrapped in quilted upholstery, keeping the interior aesthetics clean and pristine. The dashboard and the seats and the door panels are now wrapped in that same elegant upholstery that adds to the sophistication of the interior’s overall look and design. The three-spoke steering wheel is also wrapped in high-end material.

3. Different Color Options Available

The Avalon’s interior design comes in a combination of different colors such as cognac, gray, beige, and black, all depending on the trim level selected. There are a lot of other materials that make the interior look too good—there’s aluminum accents, Ultrasuede and leather upholstery, piano black surrounds, and satin chrome material.

4. Plenty Of Space

There’s plenty of space in the Avalon. Rear-seated passengers will have a shoulder room of 57.1 inches, a legroom of 40.3 inches, and a headroom of 37.5 inches. These seats are quite comfortable, thanks largely to the mix of backside-coddling and support in the right proportions.
