The New York Auto show saw the release of the brand new Toyota 2013 Avalon. This is the fourth generation model of the car. While a lot of details were revealed about the basic nature of the car, much information was not given about the car’s powertrain options.

The basic specs of the car were also released during the New York auto show. This does say quite a bit about what one can expect from the new model. However, the only drawback about the Toyota Avalon is the fact that nothing was revealed about the prices. The car is expected to be out for sale in dealerships by the end of this year. There are two options for those who are interested in buying this car, which certainly comes as a plus point. Here is a basic intro to the specs released by Toyota this April.

  • There are two models of the car. One is a general model with a V6 engine. The other one is a hybrid that offers for greater fuel efficiency as well. This is a not a first for Toyota but it is the first for this particular model
  • The Hybrid version of the car comes with an output of 200 horsepower. The powertrain of the car is said to be similar to that of Lexus’s ES 300H and Toyota’s own Camry. The hybrid model comes with a 2.5 liter four cylinder engine. The battery pack is also efficient- a 244.8 volt nickel- hydride one. It also comes with an electric motor that is located in the transaxle of the car. The peak torque of the car is 271 Nm. The fuel economy of the car is also really good- it is capable of providing 40 mpg or 100 km per 5.9 liters, which is much higher than the mileage offered by the standard model of the car. The hybrid also comes with a Synergy Drive tech, which provides for different modes of operation of the car. The three modes are called Sport, ECO and EV. One of the modes, the EV mode can allow people to run their car on electric power for around one mile, in case the fuel runs out. There is not much of a difference between the two cars when it comes to looks. However the car can go one mile when it is driven at a 40 miles per hour speed (or 25 kmph). The only difference is the fact that the Toyota logo comes with a blue outline in the hybrids and not the standard ones. However, this is not a big design change and it can be easily overlooked.
  • The standard model comes with a 3.5 liter V6 engine. It provides 268 horsepower and has a six speed auto transmission. The torque of the car can go up to 248 lbs. The car can go 0-60 in 7 seconds. It provides 25 mpg on an average, with 21 mpg mileage within city limits and 31 mpg on the highway.

The car is being manufactured at the plant at Georgetown, Kentucky. The prices are yet to be announced. The car should be out in the dealerships by the end of this year. However, much information has not been given about the details for pre- booking the car. Whether you are going for the hybrid or the standard model, this is a car that packs a punch. The fuel economy is also quite attractive, which makes this a car to look forward to.
