2021 Toyota Avalon Photos – 2021 Toyota Avalon
This year, Toyota’s big Avalon auto is adulatory its 25th altogether by announcement two firsts: all-wheel drive and four-cylinder propulsion after any amalgam electric assistance. The new drivetrain is basically aggregate with the latest RAV4 and the 2020 Toyota Camry AWD, which will announce the 2021 Toyota Avalon AWD to bazaar by about six months. We delved into the apparatus of the arrangement in our AWD aboriginal look, so let’s focus actuality on answering the question: Is this abandoned 2.5-liter four-cylinder abundantly able and aesthetic to clothing an AWD affluence sedan?
The acceptable account is that the Avalon comes accepted with the lower-restriction bifold rear bankrupt arrangement that endows the Camry XSE with 3 added application and lb-ft of torque, for a absolute of 205 hp at 6,600 rpm and 185 lb-ft at 4,600 rpm. The below acceptable account is that this is bottomward 10 hp from the absolute arrangement achievement produced by the Avalon Hybrid’s higher-compression adaptation of this aforementioned 2.5-liter engine. And although Toyota doesn’t acknowledge absolute arrangement torque for hybrids, after the two electric motors spinning through an e-CVT, the awareness of burning torque at barrage is appreciably below in this Avalon AWD, which makes do with a accepted eight-speed transmission. At atomic it’s adapted with analogously abbreviate 3.18:1 arbor gearing—that pencils out to 15 percent below all-embracing in the aboriginal three gears, about to the front-drive V-6 Avalon.

Does it feel slower than either front-drive Avalon? Yes. Will the aberration agitation or dissuade the archetypal Avalon buyer? Probably not—these are not bracket racers, by and large. And shod in the exact aforementioned all-season tires that front-drive Avalons get, it will absolutely out-accelerate the front-drivers on a albino autocross course.
Toyota arrive us to try out the Avalon’s Dynamic Torque Ascendancy AWD on aloof such a advance set up at the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center in Utah, area abounding contest of the 2002 Winter Olympics were staged. As you may anamnesis from antecedent descriptions of this system, the torque dynamics the name references are carefully advanced to rear, not ancillary to side. A clamp decouples the rear arbor back torque isn’t bare (though the prop shaft consistently spins), and back affianced it can variably accelerate up to 50 percent of agent torque to the rear as needed. Torque is beatific aft whenever advanced wheelslip is detected, and the rear is additionally affianced proactively, during launch, back accelerating in corners, etc.
The abeyance accouterments and best arrangement affability is aggregate with the 1.8-inch shorter-wheelbase Camry AWD—including new springs that accession the anatomy 0.2 inch to bottle arena approval to the hardly lower bankrupt arrangement and a 22.2mm rear anti-roll bar—down from 25.4mm on front-drive Avalons. A Camry AWD was additionally on duke for our albino auto-crossing pleasure. In both cars, the adherence ascendancy (which cannot be switched off) is programmed to admittance adeptness drivers to abet accurately controllable drifts while accurately communicable and acclimation the aboriginal misstep by anyone below accomplished in the glossy stuff. Traction ascendancy can be switched off, which is advantageous in cases area a bit of wheelspin can bake through a albino band to betrayal a grippier apparent beneath. That wheelbase amplitude and addition hundred pounds or so of affluence accessory cabal to accomplish the Avalon AWD feel below tossable and driftable than the Camry AWD—not that anybody cares.
Only two Avalon trim levels will be offered with AWD: XLE and Limited. Pricing won’t be accomplished until afterpiece to their abatement 2020 launch, but we’re told to apprehend this to be a no-cost advantage priced in band with the V-6-powered XLE and Bound front-drivers, so amount about $37,000 and $43,000. We compared the about affection agreeable of a loaded Camry XLE AWD and a analogously priced abject Avalon XLE AWD and bent that the loaded Camry ill-fitted us better. We additionally feel that this drivetrain apparel a Camry client better, and we’re assertive that accounts for its bound availability in the Avalon and the actuality that it’s not actuality offered on the Lexus ES 350 congenital in the aforementioned bulb on the aforementioned architectonics administration the Avalon’s wheelbase. It’s aloof not aesthetic abundant for Lexus duty, and it strikes us as somewhat bordering in the Avalon.
