Toyota announces 2011 Avalon Prices
The sedan has been redesigned with a slightly updated exterior as well as a more comfortable interior and expanded electronic offerings. Prices start at $32,245, or just under $33,000 if you inlcude the destination charge. Toyota fans may remember that old base model Avalons started below $30,000; Toyota has nixed these and the old mid-line Avalon will now be the base model.
The top of the line Avalon will come in at just over $36,000 with power adjustable leather seats for the driver and front seat passenger, as well as high intensity discharge headlights and other interior amenities.
Like previous models, the 2011 Avalon will come with a six-speed automatic and a 268-horsepower V6 engine. Buyers can find it in showrooms over the next several weeks.
The other newly designed vehicle from Toyota is the Sienna minivan. The company is touting a new powered seat for rear passengers that enables less-mobile occupants to easily enter and exit the vehicle. Vans equipped with the feature start at $35,135.
