Avalon
is a full-size car produced by Toyota
Toyota
in the United States and Japan, and is Toyota's largest front-wheel-drive sedan in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the Middle East. It was also produced in Australia from April 2000 until June 2005, when it was replaced in November 2006 by the Toyota
Toyota
Aurion. The first production Avalon
Avalon
rolled off the TMMK assembly line in Georgetown, Kentucky, in September 1994.[1] A second-generation model was released in the United States and Japan in 1999. Toyota
Toyota
marketed the Avalon
Avalon
as a replacement for the Toyota
Toyota
Cressida, a model discontinued for the American market in 1992. While the Cressida was an upper-level midsize rear-wheel-drive car with a straight-six engine, the Avalon
Avalon
is front-wheel-drive, powered by a V6 engine. In recent years, there has been considerable overlapping with its platform mates, the Toyota
Toyota
Camry V6 and the Lexus
Lexus
ES, although the third-generation Avalon
Avalon
was distinguished by offering extra legroom.[2] For its fourth generation, the Avalon
Avalon
was introduced on a platform that is shared with the Lexus

The Avalon
Avalon
was a new model introduced in February 1994 at the Chicago International Auto Show and launched in late 1994 for the 1995 model year. Built in the same plant as the Camry, the Avalon
Avalon
was developed under the 299T program from 1990 to 1994 and based on a stretched XV10 Camry platform featuring a 3.0-liter 1MZ-FE V6 engine
V6 engine
making 192 hp (140 kW) and 210 lb⋅ft (285 N⋅m) of torque.[5] With almost 121 cu ft (3,426 l) of interior space, the Avalon
Avalon
was the roomiest six-passenger car from a Japanese manufacturer marketed in America,[6][7] despite being three inches shorter than the Mazda 929
Mazda 929
and 11 inches shorter than the Dodge Intrepid.[6] The Avalon
Avalon
was available with a front bench seat for six-passenger seating, and its column shifter was the first such feature in an American Toyota
Toyota
car since the 1982 Corona.[citation needed] The XL models were similar to the LE models of other Toyota
Toyota
vehicles, and the XLS models were similar to the XLE models of other Toyota
Toyota
vehicles. Traction control was optional. For 1997 models ABS became standard, power rating increased to 200 hp (150 kW), and torque increased to 214 lb⋅ft (290 N⋅m). In 1997 for the 1998 model year a mid-cycle refresh was introduced with minor updates to the front and rear fascias. Also for 1998, the Avalon's structure was modified to improve safety[citation needed] while front seat-mounted side airbags became standard. The first-generation Avalon
Avalon
was also sold in Japan (vehicles were made in the United States and exported to Japan) as a right-hand drive model, and was exclusive to Toyopet Store locations. In Japan, it was the largest front-wheel drive sedan at Toyopet Store locations, and was sold alongside the front-engine, rear-drive Toyota
Toyota
Celsior, and was available in 3.0 and 3.0G grade levels, with the "Coach Edition" available as an option starting in late 1997 (equivalent to the 1998 model year). In Japan it was considered a luxury car due to its exterior dimensions placing it in the "large car" category according to Japanese Government dimension regulations and the engine displacement obligating an expensive, yearly road tax. Australia (2000–2005)[edit] In 1999, Toyota
Toyota
transferred the old tooling for the Avalon
Avalon
to Toyota Australia, which launched this Avalon
Avalon
as an "all-new" model in June 2000. The new Australian Avalon
Avalon
had an identical body to the original 1994 Avalon.[8] The Australian model was built in the Melbourne
Melbourne
suburb of Altona, made in both right-hand drive (for Australia, New Zealand, and some parts of Asia), as well as left-hand drive for the Middle East. The Camry was also made at this plant.[9] The Avalon
Avalon
performed poorly in Australia; critics called the car "boring", and sales were low. The Avalon
Avalon
was front-wheel drive and available only as a sedan with a 3.0-liter V6 and automatic transmission. By contrast, its intended rivals, the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore, were rear wheel drive and offered a wider range of body styles and engine/transmission options.[10] Toyota
Toyota
had originally decided to rename the Avalon
Avalon
as the Centaur
Centaur
for the Australian market, named after the mythological creature of the same name. The same name was also used by the AHS Centaur, an Australian hospital ship that was torpedoed and sunk by a Japanese submarine during World War II. When Toyota
Toyota
Australia was made aware of this prior to the release of the car, they organised for the Centaur badges to be destroyed and removed the offending nameplate from all paperwork and advertising. As a result, the original "Avalon" name prevailed for the Australian market.[11] When the Avalon
Avalon
was updated in 2001 as the "Mark II" (not to be confused with the separate Toyota
Toyota
Mark II), the model range was lightly revised and new hubcaps/alloy wheels were fitted.[12] The "Mark III" designation refers to the 2003 to 2005 facelift models.[13] Many buyers preferred the V6-powered Camry instead of the Avalon, and the 2003 facelift failed to rectify the lower than expected sales,[14] with many criticizing the new front styling. Because of these sales concerns, Toyota
Toyota
Australia marketed it towards taxi fleets, against the Ford Falcon, with a specially developed dual-fuel (LPG and gasoline)-compatible engine.[15] Avalon
Avalon
production ceased in mid-2005.[16] In November 2006, Toyota
Toyota
introduced its replacement, the Toyota
Toyota
Aurion (XV40).[17]

was available in two trims: the basic XL and the upscale XLS. Standard features include electroluminescent Optitron gauges, 4-wheel disc ABS, front torso side airbags and 15" alloy wheels. Optional were a JBL
JBL
audio system, a navigation system, Vehicle Stability Control, and a front row bench seat, allowing up to six passengers—a characteristic of large sized cars. However the front center seat is a tight fit for an adult passenger. Dual climate control, larger 16" wheels, and driver's and passenger's power seats were also available. This second-generation Avalon
Avalon
also featured a built-in 115V AC power inverter, the first car with such a feature. This was dropped in the third-generation Avalon; yet, the Toyota
Toyota
Matrix, Sienna, and Scion models now offer such an inverter. The Avalon
Avalon
received a mid-cycle facelift for the 2003 model year, with a new grille and modified headlights and taillights. The minor interior changes included a woodgrain-style trimmed steering wheel for the XLS, slightly modified gauges, and a chrome emblem steering wheel added onto the XL (once only standard for the XLS).

2003–2004 Toyota
Toyota
Pronard (Japan)

This second-generation Avalon
Avalon
was also exported to the Japanese market as the Toyota
Toyota
Pronard, derived from the French word "prôner" for "extol", "commend", or "praise", between 2002 and 2004, replacing the first-generation sold as the Avalon. The Japanese Toyota
Toyota
Pronard was reassigned from Toyopet Store and was now exclusive to the former Vista Store network as Toyota
Toyota
Netz Store locations, slotted between the larger Toyota
Toyota
Aristo and smaller Verossa and Altezza. Some of the optional equipment installed in the Pronard, to enhance its luxury, was the TEMS ride control technology. Due to poor sales, Toyota
Toyota
did not export the third-generation Avalon
Avalon
to Japan; thus, the Toyota Pronard has been discontinued. In the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
(IIHS) frontal crash test the Avalon
Avalon
received a "Good" overall score with the "Good" in all six measured categories.[20]

The Avalon
Avalon
underwent a redesign for 2005, and was unveiled to the public at the January 2005 North American International Auto Show. It went on sale in February 2005. Toyota
Toyota
reportedly cut the Avalon's production development time down from 29.5 months to 18 months.[23] The third generation Avalon
Avalon
was not sold in Europe or Japan. The third generation Avalon
Avalon
was larger than previous versions, with Calty styling and drag coefficient of Cd=0.29; the Avalon
Avalon
also became the first Toyota
Toyota
to use a single piece wiper blade design. The redesign dropped the front bench seat option, a feature once common among large American sedans such as Buicks and Cadillacs, and featured a semi-flat rear floor to help increase rear passenger comfort. The Avalon
Avalon
was the first Toyota
Toyota
to use Dual VVT-i
VVT-i
in the US market in an all-new 3.5-liter 2GR-FE V6 engine
V6 engine
which met ULEV certification and had a power output of 280 hp (209 kW) with a 0–60 time of 6.0 seconds. The engine was mated to a 5-speed sequential shift automatic. Due to changes in the SAE's testing procedures, power dropped to 268 hp (200 kW) and torque dropped to 248 lb⋅ft (336 N⋅m) for the 2006 model year. Actual power output did not change. The Avalon
Avalon
came in four trims: the standard (base) XL, Touring, XLS, and Limited. The XL model included 16" alloy wheels, while other trims came with larger 17" wheels. Performance-oriented tires were fitted to the Touring and Limited trims. The XL included dual-climate automatic temperature controls and steering wheel-mounted audio and climate controls. The Touring trim offered faux aluminum and all-black leather interior, a sport-tuned suspension, unique powder-coated gray wheels, and a trunk lip-mounted spoiler. The XLS introduced standard cargo nets, six-disc CD changer, a power sliding-glass moonroof, electrochromic auto dimming rear-view and driver's side-view mirrors, four-way passenger power seat and a HomeLink transceiver. The high-end Limited trim offered air-ventilated seats with a power driver's seat cushion length adjuster, Toyota's Smart Key System
Smart Key System
with keyless push-button start and entry, a quieter acoustic windshield, rain-sensing windshield wipers, an upgraded 12-speaker JBL

audio system, "in-glass" LED turn signals on the side mirrors and a wood-trimmed steering wheel and shift gear lever. A navigation system was optional for every trim level other than the XL version. The Avalon
Avalon
had a flat rear floor design and reclining rear seats. Vehicle Stability Control

model and a more upscale Limited trim. A backup camera became standard using either the rear view mirror or navigation screen for a display, and exterior side mirrors with integrated turn signals now folded in. The updated navigation system now had real-time traffic updates. Other changes included a redesigned instrument cluster and center console, new wood-style trim, new sheetmetal, and a different rear and front fascia design. The front and tail lights included LED piping, and fuel economy was slightly improved to an EPA-estimated 20/29/23 (city/highway/combined) mpg rating. The revised Avalon
Avalon
had a new brake-override control. It had an improved suspension system and a 12-speaker JBL
JBL
Synthesis system which was only available on the Limited trim. 17" wheels were also standard on both trims although the Limited model has 10 spokes. Other exterior differences on the Limited included HID projector headlamps.[26] Safety[edit] The Avalon
Avalon
came standard with anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, dual front airbags, front row side torso airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag. For 2009 models Vehicle Stability Control, traction control became standard while active head restraints were added. In 2010, the Star Safety System was added for the 2011 model year. The Avalon
Avalon
was subject to the 2009-10 Toyota
Toyota
vehicle recalls. 2011 and later model years come standard with a brake-override system. The Avalon
Avalon
received a "Good" overall score in both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) frontal offset and side impact tests.[27][28] In 2009, with the new head restraints the IIHS awarded the Avalon
Avalon
its Top Safety Pick accolade.[29] A "Good" rating in IIHS the roof strength test IIHS earned the 2011 model year the organization's "Top Safety Pick 2010" designation. The 2011 model year also received the "Top Safety Pick 2011" recommendation.
