Toyota has used a standardized trim structure for its vehicles for a long time, except for the Prius. The 2019 Toyota Prius joins the rest of the automaker’s roster in offering a range of choices called L Eco, LE, XLE and Limited. Front-wheel-drive is standard equipment for all of them, but the LE and XLE trim can be offered with all-wheel-drive. The Toyota-first AWD-e system that is used by the 2019 Toyota Prius stands out from other all-wheel-drive systems by employing an independent electric magnet-less rear motor. In addition to being charged with sending addition torque to slipping wheels, the AWD-e system can also be used to drive the 2019 Prius at speeds up to 43 miles per hour.
Every 2019 Toyota Prius that is coming to Colonial Toyota uses the same powertrain. The bulk of the work performed to move the new Prius is done by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that is attached to an electric motor.
When everything is working together, it will make 121 horsepower and 120 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the wheels via a continuously variable transmission.
All 2019 Prius models will be able to achieve combined fuel economy scores registering more than 50 miles per gallon according to current Toyota estimates. The L Eco trim is expected to record 58 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway.
Owners choosing the LE, XLE and Limited models will see 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway. AWD-e versions get 52 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway.
The inside of the 2019 Prius can be equipped with additional 2.1 USB ports to help keep compatible devices properly charged. Buyers choosing the XLE and Limited will also have access to an enlarged Qi wireless smartphone charging tray to accommodate today’s bigger devices.
