The introduction of the fifth-generation Toyota Avalon at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show not only reasserted the sedan's place as the automaker's flagship model, but also signaled a new direction for technology and connectivity for Toyota. When the 2019 Toyota Avalon in Milford, CT is delivered to the Colonial Toyota showroom each available trim grade will be outfitted with the manufacturer's new Entune 3.0 infotainment system as well as an embedded high-speed mobile internet connection.
Additionally, the 2019 Toyota Avalon is getting a revised version of its storied V-6 engine that will make more power without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The hybrid variant of the Avalon has also been redesigned and will be covered separately by Colonial Toyota. Customers interested in driving home in the new 2019 Toyota Avalon will be able to later in the spring of 2018.
Since the very first generation of the Toyota Avalon was delivered to dealerships like Colonial Toyota, it has always been positioned as the manufacturer's affordable option for buyers looking for a way into the luxury sedan class. That has not changed in the 2019 Avalon. What is different, however, is that the new Avalon is built on Toyota's new global vehicle architecture platform. Overall, the 2019 Toyota Avalon is longer, lower and wider than the previous generation. Toyota has also used the new Avalon to introduce its Adaptive Variable Suspension system that provides real-time suspension damping which is designed to increase steering response and sharpen handling.
The result is a sedan that is equally equipped to attack curves and soak up road conditions to provide a comfortable, yet engaging experience. Contact a Colonial Toyota sales professional today for more information.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon will be powered by a new version of the automaker's tried-and-true 3.5-liter, V-6 engine and will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Exact performance specs haven't been released yet, but Toyota says that the powertrain will make more power while using less fuel.
Being able to connect a smartphone to a vehicle's infotainment system is what customers are looking for. Owners of the 2019 Avalon will be able to pair their compatible versions of the iPhone with Entune to use applications for the Apple CarPlay suite. It can also be paired with Amazon Alexa.
Among the most exciting additions to the new sedan's equipment list is a standard Wi-Fi hotspot. Up to five devices can use the 4G LTE internet connection. Buyers can test out the new system by taking advantage of the 2 gigabyte/six-month trial data bucket provided by Toyota and Verizon.
