The 2019 Toyota Avalon XLE will be powered by a 3.5liter V6, with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the XLE Hybrid moves with Toyota's ECVT Hybrid drivetrain, supplemented by a 2.5liter 4-cylinder gas engine. At XLE trim, driver and passengers enjoy a standard 9inch touchscreen with Toyota Connected Services' Entune 3.0 system, compatible with Apple CarPlay, which features Sirius satellite radio and a Verizon-powered wifi hotspot (each subject to subscription past a trial period).

The 2019 Toyota Avalon XSE and XSE Hybrid's MSRP starts at $38,000 ($39,000 Hybrid) with MPG of 22/31 (43/43 for Hybrid).

Visible upgrades on the outside of the XSE trim include 19-inch black-painted, machined-finish alloy wheels, smoked-chrome bezels around the LED reflector headlights, piano-black exterior accents, as well as a spoiler.

The 2019 Toyota Avalon Touring's MSRP starts at $42,200.

It carries the same 3.5 liter V6 as the gas-powered XLE and XSE trims, with MPG of 22/31. Performance-wise, the Touring trim features a 4-mode performance switch (Eco, Normal/Custom, Sport and Sport+), as well as Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS). On the outside, Touring buyers gain direct LED headlights, LED taillights in a laser-ablated design and a sport-tuned exhaust. Inside, enjoy an upgraded, 14-speaker audio system with subwoofer and 1200W amplifier; and of course, a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. At the Touring trim, buyers have the option for the Advanced Safety Package, with features a Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB).

The 2019 Toyota Avalon Limited and Hybrid Limited's MSRP starts at $41,800 ($42,800 Hybrid).

Engines and MPG are identical as for XLE / XSE and related Hybrids. What Limited buyers gain on the outside are distinctive 18-inch SuperChrome wheels and a dual exhaust with chrome tips.

For all trims, drivers and passengers of the 2019 Toyota Avalon will enjoy distinctive touches like the Avalon's unique noise-reducing windshield.

Perhaps more importantly, all Avalons also come with the Toyota's wide selection of standard safety features, including Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), 4-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology (SST).
