Design

The possible change around the car will be a new global platform that will be provided by Toyota for the new life of 2018 Avalon. This new platform makes the car has new dimension. It is expected to come with a bit wider design than before and the wheelbase can be extended a couple inches. It is not necessary for Toyota to offer this car with dramatic changes because the current model is still good and fresh especially with the use of sheet metal if we can compare it with the rivals. The latest design philosophy will be carried over to give unique and unusual details for its look.

We glad that there are some predictions given by automotive experts when it comes to the cabin. The interior will be more substantial so that the functionality and convenience can be increased. This is a brand new 2018 Toyota Avalon that will go with new premium materials to offer higher level of quality than before. To achieve this, Toyota will use more user-friendly controls. About the technology, it will be the fifth generation that will come with innovative features for its safety, infotainment and entertainment systems.

Engine

2018 Toyota Avalon is still hard to be known when it is about the engine. No official statement mentioned that there will be new engine options or they will keep the current engine but with little enhancements. As far as we know, the current standard sedan is completed with the popular 3.5 liter and V6 engine to provide 268 hp and 248 pound-feet of torque power and it works with six-speed automatic transmission. For hybrid model, there will be the 2.5 liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder and an electric motor unit to generate 200 hp and the fuel efficiency is about 40/39 city/highway. What we think is the current engine is still quite good but it is better to be used for the base. They can use a new engine with better output and fuel efficiency for the top model to attract buyers.

Release Date and Price

About its release, 2018 Toyota Avalon has not been officially announced yet. It might be ready to cover the huge demand of this car in North America in the end of 2017 or at least in the beginning of 2018.
