The Toyota Avalon enters the second year of its third generation, following a full redesign for 2005. The new generation is marked by a more powerful engine, several advanced technology features, and a stylish new look. The Avalon has also grown in all dimensions.
Four Avalon variations are available for 2006, but all models use the same power train. The engine, added in 2005, is a 3.5 liter DOHC V-6 which produces 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The V-6 is paired with a five speed electronically controlled automatic transmission, and all Avalons are front wheel drive. Toyota's Variable Valve Timing + intelligence system maximizes power while improving fuel efficiency. The Avalon will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just under seven seconds, while consuming fuel at a reasonable rate of 22/31 mpg.
All four Avalons are equipped with a power driver's seat, a tilt/telescope steering wheel, an air filter, automatic climate control, a nine-speaker CD audio system, full power accessories, and cruise control. The XL is considered the base model, and is not eligible to receive some of the luxury options available on the higher trims.
Adds to XL:
No additional major features.

Toyota's flagship sedan was all new for 2005, when a new larger, more powerful, and athletic-looking Avalon arrived. The Avalon has been a great success for Toyota in the last decade, offering many Lexus-like amenities for a considerably lower price.
The Touring Avalon is the second trim tier for the four-model 2006 lineup. It is slightly more expensive than the XL, but adds a unique sporting orientation. Wheels grow from 16 to 17 inches on this model, and a firmer suspension system has been added. The Touring interior includes leather seating and aluminum trim. All of the XL's standard features are also included.
The Avalon houses a recently added 3.5 liter DOHC V-6, supported by Toyota's Variable Valve Timing system. VVT-i lowers emissions and fuel consumption, while maximizing the engine output. The V-6 provides the 3500 pound sedan with 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, sending the Avalon from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. All models use a five speed electronically controlled transmission to route power to the front wheels.

The Toyota Avalon was introduced in as larger and more luxurious option to the immensely popular Camry. Toyota also aimed to provide an alternative to full size luxury offerings from GM and Lincoln. For this third generation, Toyota has done away with the Avalon's front bench seat, which has been a mainstay in American luxury cars.
The XLS is the Avalon's third trim level with respect to features and price. The XLS costs about $2000 less than the top shelf Limited model, but offers many similar luxury features. Standand equipment includes full power accessories, cruise control, automatic climate control, a nine-speaker sound system with a six-disc CD changer, a power moon roof, and a cabin air filter. A navigation system is optional on this model.
Like all Avalon models, the XLS is powered by a 3.5 liter DOHC V-6, which provides 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. This new VVT-i engine is mated to a five speed electronically controlled transmission, and power is sent to the front wheels. The avalon is surprisingly quick for its size, speeding from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.9 seconds. Fuel economy is estimated at 22/31 mpg.

The 2006 Toyota Avalon returns with only a few minor changes for 2006, after a full overhaul before the previous model year. This third generation Avalon is larger and more powerful than its predecessors, and is also differentiated by a sleeker overall presentation.
The Avalon is now powered by a 3.5 liter 24-valve V-6, which generates 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. A five speed electronically controlled automatic transmission and front wheel drive are consistent attributes across the board.
The Avalon is a full size sedan, serving as Toyota's flagship since 1995. The current model is segmented into four trims, with the Limited positioned at the top. The Avalon Limited is Toyota's most expensive car, but it can still be had for under $30,000. On top of items like automatic climate control, full power accessories, a moon roof, and electroluminescent gauges, the Limited adds perforated leather seats with both heating and cooling, wood trim, keyless ignition, and a premium JBL audio system. Options on this trim include a navigation system and laser-adaptive cruise control.
