Model Highlights

The 2007 Toyota Avalon may be the most American vehicle in Toyota's lineup.

This flagship Toyota sedan was engineered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, had more owner clinics to shape the vehicle than any previous Toyota, and is being built in Kentucky. While the 1995 Avalon was essentially a stretched Camry, and the 2000 version still leaned heavily on Camry hardware, the Avalon received a brand new engine and chassis in 2005.

The 3.5L V6 makes an energetic 268-horsepower and has a hefty rating of 248 lb-ft of torque. Dual variable valve timing alters the camshaft timing of both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The five-speed automatic transmission has some of the smoothest shifts we've ever felt, and helps the 3,500-pound car achieve an EPA fuel economy rating of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

We had occasion to drive a number of different Avalon models on city, highway and mountain roads, and came away very impressed. At one point, there were three six-feet-plus tall occupants, and we were amazed at how much rear legroom the Avalon provides. Further, one colleague said that the new Avalon is less Buick and more BMW.

Well, he must have been driving the $29,125 Touring model, as this is the one with the firmest suspension. Prices start at $26,875 for the XL, $31,325 for the XLS and culminate with the $34,065 Limited. The equipment level is impressive on the base model and includes such niceties as a reclining rear seat back, computer controlled engine mounts to dampen any possible motor vibration, and a nearly flat floor.

Aside from the tuned suspension, the Touring adds larger wheels, a rear spoiler, HID auto-leveling headlights, fog lights, and leather seats and trim. The XLS gets a moonroof, heated power mirrors, an alarm system, HomeLink and a six-disc CD changer, among other items. The Limited drapes the interior in more wood, adds a rear power sun shade, and upgrades the audio system.

The level of refinement in the newest Avalon is so high that it's going to be hard for the next Lexus to top the Avalon. For instance, not only is dual climate control standard, but the basic models get seven fan speeds to help keep the interior hushed, and the Limited has a step-less fan. The Limited also comes with a smart key that allows you to start the car with the key in your pocket by just pushing a button on the dash. You can even get a remote engine start as an option.

Vehicle stability control, a voice-activated DVD navigation system, and dynamic laser cruise control are some of the available equipment.


Model News

For 2007, all Toyota Avalons get a tire pressure monitoring system. The Avalon Touring gets an optional navigation system.


Value Writeup

There are few other cars on the market that boast all of the positive points the2007 Toyota Avalon has to offer. It is one of the roomiest cars in its market segment, the interior is whisper quiet, and the ride is superb regardless of whether you are driving on smooth highways or rough roads. Finally, Toyota's vaulted engineering prowess has made the Avalon one of the more reliable vehicles on the market.

Potential Number of Units Affected
3800000

Summary
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2004-2010 PASSENGER VEHICLES. THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL CAN GET STUCK IN THE WIDE OPEN POSITION DUE TO ITS BEING TRAPPED BY AN UNSECURED OR INCOMPATIBLE DRIVER'S FLOOR MAT.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
