2013 Toyota Avalon pricing announced
Toyota has announced manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the all-new 2013 Avalon premium mid-sized sedan. The sedan will be offered in both a V6 gasoline powertrain as well as a Hybrid Synergy Drive option. The 2013 Toyota Avalon arrives in dealerships in early December.
The new look for the Avalon has updated its appearance with a more sculpted, modern feel. While this styling has improved its consumer appeal, it's also increased its efficiency by lowering drag. The top-line Toyota also has more interior changes to upgrade its opulence while the engine remains as the proven, reliable 268 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to an upgraded 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy in the gasoline Avalon is an EPA-rated 25 mpg combined (21 city, 31 highway).
The Avalon Hybrid uses a smaller, 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle, 4-cylinder engine coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and Hybrid Synergy Drive electric components. The same proven setup used in the Camry Hybrid, putting out a total of 200 horsepower overall. The EPA has not yet rated the 2013 Avalon Hybrid.
MSRP for the gasoline model starts at $30,990 for the base Avalon XLE, which includes a 2-door Smart Key, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated outer mirrors, leather seating, a 6.1-inch touch screen display, 8-speaker audio, heated front seats, outer mirror turn signals, an 8-way powered driver's seat and 4-way powered passenger seat as standard equipment.
The XLE Premium sells for $33,195 in the gasoline option and adds a 3-door Smart Key, backup camera, auto-dimming mirror with compass, a moonroof, and an integrated garage door opener as standard.
The XLE Touring / Premium Plus package will be marked at $35,500 and adds fog lamps, display audio with Navi and Entune, 9-speaker audio, blind spot monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, outer mirror and driver's seat memory, 18" alloy wheels, 3-button Eco Switch, and paddle shifters.
