2019 Toyota Avalon’s Taillights Revealed In New Teaser

Toyota is bringing the Avalon into its fifth generation, approximately six years after its predecessor debuted in full at the New York Auto Show.

And since it’s scheduled to be presented in front of an audience in just a little over a week, during the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the automaker has shifted into second gear when it comes to its teaser campaign.

The latest video released by Toyota on social media reveals the car’s taillights, focusing on the modern sequential turn signals, a feature that can already be found on various other vehicles, including the Audi A4 – accompanied by the caption “first look at the all-new Avalon”.

This isn’t, however, the first look at the new generation Avalon, as we already caught a glimpse of its front end design last month, which is dominated by the LED-infused headlights, large air intakes, a generously sized grille, and muscular hood.

On the technical front, the 2019 Toyota Avalon is believed to share the TNGA platform with the latest Camry, in addition to some engines, such as the 3.5-liter V6 with 301hp (305PS) and 267lb-ft (362Nm) of torque. The large saloon is also expected to adopt a hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.5-liter unit with an electric motor, for a total of 208hp (211PS).

    I’m honestly pretty excited about this car. As an owner of a 2005 Avalon, I am looking forward to seeing if they can bring something new to the table and maybe bring some excitement to the sedan market. In my opinion, the last truly great Avalon years were from 2005-2009. At that time, the Avalon was the top of the segment and beat out the Chrysler 300 along with the Buick Lacrosse and Nissan Maxima. What’s sad is that due to the crossover craze, as well as the enlarging of midsize sedans to full-size interior proportions, the Avalon is one of the few new vehicles being introduced in the full-size semi-luxury sedan market. I think it’s only real competitors are the Kia Cadenza and Nissan Maxima.

    And I know there will be a lot of people that will probably call the Avalon a moving appliance like they did the new Camry, but for those of us driving them it will be a comfortable car that spends more time on the road than in the shop.

      Don’t care about what people said about your beloved car. It’s your car and you did a great deal of work to be able to afford it. Just enjoy the results of your hard work. I believe you that it’s indeed a very comfortable car with the big bonus: peace of mind from Toyota legendary quality. Nothing is perfect in this world, but for me, an ultra-reliable, problem free and decently comfortable big sedan like Toyota Avalon would be just a nice addition in anyone’s life. 🙂 Uh, btw talking about life, it’s already filled with problems and stress, so I don’t need another problem created by my car. LOL

      Hoping Avalon will be conservative, attractive looking, not like that of the new Camry and all the current Lexus models.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Good, I’ll be able to recognize it better when I’m overtaking one.

    • no25

      wow youre so cool. you overtake all cars with your lawnmower exhausted Civic? lmao

      • Knotmyrealname

        No, just a pedal car, like in the Flintstones.

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    I think I’m gonna burst with the excitement, Toyota.

  • Infinite1

    Interesting headlight and taillight design.

  • Whatever they do to Avalon to make it sexy, I hope gets carried over to the RAV-4, in some form. That thing looks monstrously hideous. Each time I see one on the road I get eye cancer.

    • So you must be blind by now (or soon to be) since the RAV4 was the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., excluding big pick-ups, which are often sold as commercial vehicles.
      PS – I don’t like it either, prefer Mazda CX-5s or Nissan Rogues.

    Interesting design, hopefully the rest of the body is just as fresh.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Well that’s cool

  • TheBelltower

    At least it’ll be more interesting to look at while driving behind it for ten miles in the left lane with it’s blinker on.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I’m hoping that this isn’t super busy in design.

  • :/ Yurr

    I like really have a feeling that this will be the best looking full size car in the class…right now it’s the Impala.

  • botornot387

    Q7 headlights, A5 taillights, Audi sweep signature turn signal. Will you be putting 4 rings in front too?

  • Bash

    Oh, that grille tho!!!!

  • Nordschleife

    For those automakers that will keep sedan around, I wonder if they will just lengthen the development time? Like instead of sedan being redone every 4-5 years, they will change generation every 8-9 years like Chrysler does or the previous LS. I wonder will that become normal practice?

  • Autoexperte

    the big surprise is the interior, the last toyotas and lexus have made in the interior design and quality a big step

  • john1168

    I like the styling of the current Avalon but I hope they didn’t make the front grille BIGGER!
