2016 Toyota Avalon teased, will debut in Chicago image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has released the first teaser image with the upcoming 2016 Avalon, which will be officially presented to the public during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, next week.

The 2016 Toyota Avalon will be making its public debut next week, during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, as the company has recently announced. The model in question, seen in the image posted above, will not be a new generation as it is believed to be actually a mid-life facelift, bringing some interesting items, including the different front fascia with its different headlights design, the less chrome on the upper and lower grilles and the new LED daytime running lights.

The facelifted version of the Toyota Avalon will also come with a sportier front bumper, with LED fog lights, with large hexagonal grille and several other tweaks. As far as the cabin goes, this will be updated too but don’t expect any significant changes because new upholstery choices, some trims and some other small changes are expected to be adopted here.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the same units found on the current version will be carried over to the 2016 Toyota Avalon. This basically includes the 3.5 liter V6 with a total output of 268 HP (200 kW) and 336 Nm (248 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission, or the hybrid with a 2.5L four-cylinder with 154 HP (115 kW), backed up by the electric motor with 140 HP (104 kW). More details on the “new” Avalon will be announced at the automotive event.
