The 2013 Toyota Avalon is an attempt by Toyota motors to reclaim its position as a leading manufacturer in the vehicle industry. The Avalon is set to feature many prominent upgrades over its predecessors that will surely present it as a viable and affordable option for consumers. The vehicle will be offered in a five speed manual transmission or CVT transmission, as opposed to the traditional automatic option. Toyota has publicly stated that the CVT was implemented to improve fuel efficiency on the 2013 Toyota Avalon, since fuel economy is arguably the biggest factor on the minds of consumers in this economy. In their press release, Toyota has stated that the Avalon will feature a 24-valve 3.0-liter DOHC motor, that will be able to output 210 horse power as well as an impressive torque ratio of 220 lb-ft at a moderately high RPM level. This will be one of Toyota’s first cars to feature the Vehicle Skid Control system, also known as VSC system. In adverse weather conditions, this system can kickstart, allowing individuals to maintain control on the road, despite poor visibility or slippery conditions. This system can accurately manipulate the vehicle’s speed and brake control, as well as artificially adjust the rpm and transmissions ratios to match driving conditions.
The 2013 Toyota Avalon will also feature many consumer friendly amenities that are sure to please even the most picky of buyers. Windshield vipers are built in with a sensor that can automatically detect the presence of rain or water, causing them to operate without the driver even having to toggle a switch. The 2013 Toyota Avalon also comes built in with a state of the art music system featuring 9 speakers and a 6 CD changer. For individuals with mp3 players, the Avalon also features an auxiliary jack that allows music to be directly played from an mp3 device. The vehicle also comes standard with 6 built in airbags that have received a 5 star safety recommendation from the automotive manufacturer. Many cutting edge features are also included in this affordable package, such as glass breakage sensor that will present a warning light when any of the glass infrastructure on the vehicle has been compromised or broken. This not only serves as a security feature, but will also inform the driver if there has been any effort to break into the vehicle or tamper with car doors. All in all, the 2013 Toyota Avalon release date is set for the summer of 2012, and looks to be a terrific purchase for money conscious buyers.
