Performance and handling have long been hallmarks of the Toyota Avalon platform. For the new model year, Toyota has added a new Toyota Racing Development version of the Avalon lineup. Potential buyers will know they are looking at the 2020 Toyota Avalon TRD instantly by the wheels. The new Avalon model will ride on 19-inch matte-black alloy wheels which will sit in front of large diameter rotors and red-painted dual-piston front brake calipers. Toyota has improved the handling characteristics of the 2020 Avalon by adding TRD-tuned shocks that will enhance body control, ride quality and steering. Additionally, thicker underbody braces have been added for more rigidity. Even the exhaust system has been improved with a cat-back exhaust system to optimize efficiency and performance.
All versions of the 2020 Toyota Avalon, including the new TRD, will use the same powertrain. A 3.5-liter, V-6 engine is attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2020 Avalon will produce 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. The XLE model can achieve 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Limited and TRD models can post the same scores in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
Toyota has retained the entire menu of connectivity technology for the 2020 iteration of the Avalon. This includes access to the Apple CarPlay® suites of applications that will perfectly combine and enhance the features of a compatible smartphone and the infotainment system. Avalon owners who also have an Apple Watch® can control several features like starting the engine or locking the doors.
