2019 Toyota Avalon Teases Bolder Design Ahead Of Detroit Debut

The countdown to the North American International Auto Show continues as Toyota has released the first teaser image of the 2019 Avalon.

Set to be unveiled on January 15th, the redesigned model promises to embrace “style and dynamism.” The company didn’t have much to say about the car but the teaser image suggests it will have a more adventurous design than its predecessor which debuted at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

As you can see, the Avalon will have an all-new front fascia which appears to feature LED-infused headlights and a massive grille. The car also has vertical air intakes and a sculpted hood.

Little else is known about the model but the Avalon will likely ride on the TNGA platform that underpins the 2018 Camry. Engine options could also carryover from the Camry and include a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 301 hp (224 kW) and 267 lb-ft (361 Nm) of torque. A hybrid variant is also a strong possibility and it could use a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor to produce a combined output of approximately 208 hp (155 kW).

Regardless of what’s under the hood, we can expect the Avalon to have an assortment of Toyota Safety Sense systems. These should include automatic high beam headlights, a lane departure warning system, and a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection.

    oooo a bit of Toyota crown in that grillllll

    • Six Thousand Times

      A bunch of “l’s” is at least a new way to get it wrong.

        LOL…

  • Jason Panamera

    Hope they are not gonna make interior like in Crown which get much worse comparing to previous generation.

    • BarryFastCars

      Why it isn’t just the Crown is beyond me. Lexus I suppose.

  • john1168

    Oh boy!!! I hope they made the front grille BIGGER :/

    • BarryFastCars

      Is it still a grill if it is the entire surface area of the front of the car? Would it just be the front? Lol

      • Six Thousand Times

        You like a big surface area for a grill if you’re cooking for a large party. Look, john even gave you the right word. How did you get it wrong?

        • john1168

          LMAO!!! Maybe he’s hungry and is about to GRILL on the BBQ 🙂

      • john1168

        Good question. Ya got me on that one. Toyota may be able to answer that one:)

    • Six_Tymes

      yeeeeshhh…

  • lagunas3ca

    You mean Audi TT?

    But in all seriousness, good to see Toyota handling the majority of engineering (including powertrain in the near future) at their Technical Center in Saline, MI. Ford can fuck outta here and get slapped with heavy import taxes.

  • Althea Later

    Nothing says style like a massive grille

    • BarryFastCars

      Dood, that V6 needs a lot of air to make 300hp.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Audi called. They want their headlights back.

      jealousy detected…. lol

    Best part is that I heard that it will be Toyota’s FIRST vehicle to be FINALLY supporting both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    No joke, look it up here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEETlNStuxA&t=1s

    But even then, with that aside, THE HYPE IS FUCKING REAL!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

    • G82FS

      How exciting!

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Said everyone with other cars, two years ago.

    • john1168

      Dude… I’m not trying to piss in your Cheerios but if the HYPE is only about apple/android car play then… yyyaaaaawwwwwnnnnnn, sssssnnnooooooorrrrrrrrr, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

      • Farhan Vladimir Lorenzo-Krause

        I was referring my excitement to the 2019 Avalon overall, not just the fact that it will have CarPlay and Android Auto. Understand the fucking context before you respond, and do yourself a favour, and get a tutor and learn to read first, dipshit.

  • G82FS

    I did not think that dynamism was actually a word, had to look that up. Pretty much the same as dynamic, just a bit more pretentious…

  • Hot Twink

    I bet it will showcase a whole new level of ugly…

    • Farhan Vladimir Lorenzo-Krause

      Highly doubt it.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Why does Toyota and “bolder design” scare me so much?

  • Kevin Tay

    Hello Audi A8

    • no25

      BAHAHAH pls. stop.

  • ErnieB

    Volvo wants their hammers back

    • no25

      definitely different not like Volvo’s DRLs at all.

    #THEHYPEISFUCKINGREAL

    Toyota……. just shut up and take my money!

    • john1168

      But, did they make the grille bigger???

  • I can already imagine from that silhouette that it’s not going to be pretty. A shame, especially when the current model is best looking sedan in Toyota’s line-up

  • no25

    Looking like the render Carscoops posted earlier…it was a good job on the render, but the car doesnt look that good. Not a fan. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/67809f67c7caf1f66fcdca33b7ab37b7fd4cebb72bb66bdfaec1d321c3a32a55.jpg

    • Tumbi Mtika

      That is awful. Not looking forward to this.

      • jsz00

        Better looking than any Lamborghini

        • Tumbi Mtika

          You got jokes.

      • Harry_Wild

        The rims do not go with the rendition. I like to buy a full size sedan that looks nice. We will all see how it look! Hope it dos not look like the Camry XSE! Totally hideous front end! The dash is sort of cheap looking with the weird downhill ski run trail that separates the two halfs – driver and passenger compartments. It drives much better then previous Camry but still like a bigger sedan.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Why does this already look like a Lexus?

    edit: Looks like we have a Toyota fanboy here, guys.
    Oh boy.

    • john1168

      hhmmm…. I wonder who the fanboy here is???:) LOL I think he should change his name to Mr. Hypeisf-ingreal… LOL…

  • getoffme

    Lol @ the reactions from here. Your bitching won’t do anything.

  • Craig

    When Toyota says it’s going ‘bolder’…. STAND BACK!

  • klowik

    those LED light pattern are from Lambo

  • Marty

    “Bolder”? I don’t want that. I want them to get their shit together and design cars that look less like smashed crustaceans.
    (Just my opinion, but I dare to say I’m within Toyota’s target audience)

  • LWOAP

    Nice Audi.

  • jsz00

    Lamborghini Avalon

  • botornot387

    Lovely that they have been shopping the Audi parts bin I see lol

  • Harry_Wild

    I drove the earlier Avalon and it pretty much a downgrades Lexus LS without the luxuries stuff inside and out and plain styling. I am in the market for a bigger sedan then a Camry or Accord. If it has better handling, AWD option and looks half decent, I will test drive it for sure.
