For the Toyota brand, the flagship sedan is without a doubt the Avalon. While it might not be seen on the road as often as the iconic Camry or Corolla, this full-size sedan is on the verge of being a luxury vehicle itself. It’s been on the lineup since 1994 and is currently a few years into its fifth generation, but the 2021 Toyota Avalon is undergoing a few enhancements before it makes its way here to Lima OH. Not only does its TRD trim level return for the new model year, but a new XSE Nightshade Edition will be available. And that’s just the beginning.
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Toyota Avalon will be available both with its TRD trim level as well as a new XSE Nightshade Edition. But what’s even more exciting than that is that the Toyota Avalon will be available with an all-wheel drive system for the first time ever. That brings the total number of Avalon variations up to 10 if you include the Avalon Hybrid: XLE, XSE Nightshade, Limited, Touring, TRD, XLE Hybrid, XSE Hybrid, Limited Hybrid, XLE AWD and Limited AWD.
There are two new exterior colors found in the Toyota Avalon, including Ice Edge – which replaces Supersonic Red as the exclusive TRD option – and Blueprint. On the inside, Cognac with Black is a new interior color available on the XSE Hybrid and Touring trim levels, while Black replaces the Beige interior option in the Limited trim level. Additionally, you can opt for new summer-only tires in the TRD trim level, enabling even greater handling and control of the sportiest Avalon option.
Another exciting enhancement for the 2021 model year, Toyota has replaced the old USB-A ports that were in the front and rear console boxes with a pair of USB-C inputs to enable even more versatility. While those are all the new features and updates, the Avalon has plenty more to offer, including a host of premium content and technology.
