Auto manufacturers have been reducing full size sedan offerings in recent years, yet the Toyota Avalon has remained and proven a worthy contender. I truly loved the new styling of the Avalon. In particular, I loved the new Touring Model’s aggressive stance. It features a 3.5 L V6 engine under the hood that makes 301 HP and 267 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an 8-speed transmission, you get an EPA rated 31 MPG on the highway. With the EnTune 3.0 app standard you get a slew of convenient applications on an 9 in touch screen monitor including; traffic and weather, HD radio, and much more. Another cool feature I enjoyed was the Qi wireless charging capability integrated into a device holder. My iPhone XR was able to charge wirelessly while I drove around the Washington metropolitan area. I really loved the dual exhaust with quad chrome tips and with the upgraded power output, the Avalon Touring was a very robust performer during my week long drive. The Touring model I drove had a base price of $42,200 and with options like an advanced safety package, a special red color, and mats, it came out to $44,913 delivered. For more information visit
