Toyota Avalon Gets New Six-Speed Transmission And Luxury Upgrades For 2008
The Toyota Avalon – the platinum standard in premium midsize sedans – offers enhanced performance from a new six-speed automatic transmission and a revised braking system for 2008. Revised exterior styling and new luxury upgrades make Avalon an even more desirable choice among full-size sedans.
A new bumper, grille and headlights update the Avalon at the front, and new smoked tail lamp lenses add a touch of sophistication. Chrome door handles and a new wheel design for the Touring and XLS grades accentuate Avalon's upscale design.
The new six-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) provides a sequential manual shift feature for a more involved driving experience when desired. A revised braking system employs larger rear discs and aluminum rear calipers.
Inside Avalon for 2008, numerous enhancements to standard and optional equipment increase comfort and convenience. The standard XL model for 2008 now offers an available four-way power passenger seat, while the XLS and Limited offer an optional new eight-way power passenger seat. All grades gain a standard new multi-information display, leather shift knob and additional chrome interior accents.
Music-playing versatility is assured by a newly standard six-disc CD changer for all models, plus a mini-jack for connecting an iPod® or MP3/WMA music player to the vehicle's audio system. Bluetooth® wireless technology is included with the JBL audio upgrade package (standard on Limited).
The third-generation Avalon was designed at Calty Design Research in Newport Beach, Calif., developed by U.S.-based Toyota Technical Centers and is assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Georgetown, KY.
The Avalon is offered in four grades, the standard XL, the sporty Touring, the extremely well-equipped XLS and the top-of-the-line Limited, which compares well to near-luxury models for comfort and amenities. The XLS and Limited models gain even more luxury touches for 2008, starting with a new rich dark wood grain and chrome trim interior.
