About the Toyota Avalon
Debuting in 1994 as a 95 model, this mid-range Toyota sedan served as a replacement to the Toyota Cressida which was a straight six rear wheel driven top end luxury car whereas the Avalon came out with a V6 mounted to a front wheel drive layout. As the years went by it rivaled the likes of the home grown and family owned Lexus ES Series as well as the Nissan Maxima, Dodge Charger, Hyundai Azera and Ford Fusion.
Eventually, the Avalon took over from the outgoing V6 Camry as those cars became exclusively four cylinders.

Based on an extended chassis of the Camry, the Avalon provided extra legroom for rear passengers. With similar markings to its donor mode, the Avalon had its own visual markings including a slanted grille, unique lighting houses and separate rims on each corner.
Traction control was an optional extra at the very beginning and in 1997, ABS were added to the standard features. One year later in 1998, the sedan was given a light refresh to enhance its ageing looks. This included reworked front and rear ends whereas inside, side-mounted airbags became standard upfront and its overall structure was improved for increased strength.
Certain models during this time also came with a six seat setup instead of the traditional five-seat configuration.
A single 3-litre V6 provided power to each of the Avalon’s produced. Around 200 horsepower is channelled through a 4-speed automatic gearbox controlling the front wheels.
