2013 Toyota Avalon
2013 Toyota Avalon

New For 2013

The Avalon is dramatically redesigned this year, with all-new interior and exterior styling and a retuned suspension. A hybrid powertrain is offered for the first time.


Believe your eyes: this is the Toyota Avalon. One of the most conservative cars on the market is all-new and radically different. The styling is sporty and swoopy rather than boxy and stodgy. It’s not just younger-looking; it’s actually lighter by some 110 pounds. It gains a hybrid powertrain, the same one used in the Camry, to achieve 40 mpg combined. The Avalon still offers Toyota’s tried-and-true—and very smooth— 3.5-liter V-6, again paired with a six-speed automatic. Tuning and gearing changes help improve its fuel economy to 25 mpg combined. The interior, which has always been as comfortable and well assembled as in a luxury car, now looks the part as well. The stylish new dash has an organic yet sporty aesthetic that looks similar to that of the pricier Lexus GS but with a simpler control layout. We’ve yet to drive the 2013 Avalon, but Toyota promises that its stouter structure, stiffer new dampers, and sportier steering will transform the formerly fuddy-duddy driving experience. Even if the Avalon hasn’t turned into a Porsche Panamera, it should be a very compelling alternative in the full-size segment.


Front, side, side curtain, and driver’s knee air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard.

2013 Toyota Avalon XLE Front Left Side View 3
When we drive an all-new version of an existing car, it's sometimes difficult to discern any profound differences between the old car and the new car. This is most definitely not the case with the 2013 Toyota Avalon, which is a wholesale departure from previous generations of the Avalon. The last time I drove an Avalon, in the summer of 2011, I wrote: "From the moment you slide behind the steering wheel of the Avalon, it's obvious that this is a traditional car chasing traditional-sedan buyers. You know, the people who usually buy Buicks. The big Toyota is definitely geared toward older people, and there's nothing wrong with that, since there's a huge population of aging baby boomers and for many of them the Avalon is the ideal car."

Just before we presented the Ten Forbidden Fruits of the Automotive World, Toyota has launched the 14th-generation Crown sedan. Offered in rear- and all-wheel-drive forms, the Crown sits near the top of the Toyota brand range, offering Lexus-like technology.
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky Production Line
Toyota has an enviable reputation among automakers for both its sales success and financial health. But like any large manufacturer with a sizeable and aging workforce, it is facing the rising costs associated with older workers. To help strengthen its financial footing, the company is offering an early retirement package to approximately 10 percent of its 20,000-strong U.S. workforce. The majority of the employees eligible for the offer are in manufacturing.

2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Front Three Quarter 2
Toyota announced pricing today for its 2013 Avalon sedan, which will be offered both with a traditional gasoline powertrain and in a hybrid version. Pricing for the 2013 Toyota Avalon starts at $31,785 (after a $795 destination charge), while the Avalon hybrid starts at $36,350. The 2013 Toyota Avalon is offered in four different trim levels of increasing equipment levels. The $31,785 Avalon XLE is available only with the 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine and features 17-inch alloy wheels, a touchscreen audio system with eight speakers, and powered heated front seats. That starting price represents a $2170 discount compared to the starting price of the 2012 Toyota Avalon; the 2012 Avalon Limited cost $37,105. The Avalon XLE Premium costs $33,990 with the gasoline engine or $36,350 if equipped with the hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.5-liter inline-four and an electric motor. In addition to what's included on the Avalon XLE, standard equipment on the XLE Premium includes a sunroof, backup camera, garage-door opener, and auto-dimming mirror. Stepping up to the Avalon XLE Touring requires $36,295 for the V-6 engine and $38,045 for the hybrid model. It adds equipment like fog lights, blind sport monitor and cross-traffic alert system, a navigation system with nine speakers, plus 18-inch alloy wheels and paddle shifters for V-6 models. The top-spec version of the 2013 Toyota Avalon is the Limited, which costs $40,445 with the V-6 engine and $42,195 with the hybrid powertrain. It builds on the XLE Touring with HID headlights and LED running lights, premium leather seats, puddle lamps, automatic windshield wipers, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, a color climate-control screen, and ambient lighting. The optional $1750 Technology package supplements that with adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and automatic high beams. The pricing regime makes the Toyota Avalon significantly cheaper than the 2013 Lexus ES350 and ES300h; the two cars are mechanically identical and differ primarily in design and equipment levels. The 2013 ES350, equipped with a 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine, starts at $36,995 -- $5215 more than the base Avalon V-6. The 2013 ES300h hybrid costs $39,745, a premium of $3395 over the base Avalon hybrid. The 2013 Toyota Avalon reaches dealerships in December. Source: Toyota
