standard equipment has increased, reducing the number of options and
packages by 40 percent.
For 2011, Avalon receives distinctive new exterior styling and a
restyled interior rich with premium touch points and practical new
technologies.  The exterior has a wider, more substantial grille that
ties into state-of-the-art projector headlamps.  The new headlamps and
taillamps utilize light pipes for the first time on a Toyota vehicle to
create a signature, night-time appearance.  The front fog lamps, now
integrated into a trapezoidal front bumper, provide a wider angle of
illumination.  New 17-inch wheels on the Limited grade feature a
10-spoke design with a mirror finish. 
A new Avalon interior features a contemporary style that remains
spacious and elegant, while adding thoughtfully integrated amenities,
coordinated colors and updated wood-grain materials.
A comprehensive infusion of technology was designed into the new
interior to ensure enhanced function and connectivity.  New standard
equipment includes Bluetooth hands-free phone and music streaming to
the audio system from a compatible device, XM® satellite radio
(subscription required), and both USB and 1/8-inch auxiliary
connections for iPod® and other audio devices.  Each of the three
available audio systems can control iPods seamlessly using switches
located on the steering wheel and display track information stored in
the device.
The Avalon grade’s standard nine-speaker system offers exceptional
sound quality, while the Limited grade features a standard 12-speaker,

V6 with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) mated to
an electronically-controlled six-speed transmission with sequential
shift, generating 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm.  Avalon’s expected
EPA-estimated mileage ratings of 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway are as good
as or better than any other V6 engine in the segment.  Avalon is rated
as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV).
The redesigned Avalon continues to feature Toyota’s standard Star
Safety System that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), anti-lock
braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD),
Brake Assist, and TRAC traction control system.  Avalon also receives a
redesigned accelerator pedal assembly and a brake override system. This
braking system enhancement will automatically reduce engine power when
