2013 Toyota Avalon Pricing Announced

2013 Toyota Avalon Pricing Announced

Toyota just announced pricing for the 2013 Avalon. This all-new premium sedan starts at $30,990, excluding $795 for destination and delivery.

That entry-level MSRP gets you into an XLE model, which comes standard with alloy wheels, heated and power-adjustable leather-clad front seats and a touch screen audio system. Sitting immediately behind the car’s wide new grille is a 268 horsepower 3.5-liter V6, the only engine offered on this trim level.

Stepping up from there, the XLE Premium comes with even more standard features including a backup camera and moon roof. Like the base car, this model is offered with a six-cylinder gasoline engine, but buyers can also opt for a fuel-saving hybrid drivetrain.

In this application Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system is built around a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder powerplant. Its dance partner is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that’s amped up with not one but two electric motors. A 244.8-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack wrangles all the electrons saved by the hybrid system.

The Avalon Hybrid is $2,360 more expensive than a V6-powered XLE premium model.

The next rung on the price ladder is the XLE Touring model. It starts at $35,500. At this trim level hybrid lovers will pay an additional $1,750.

The top-of-the-line Limited Avalon starts at a 401k-sapping $39,650. A hybrid version of this model costs $41,400. Again, that’s a $1,750 difference.

Once more, all prices listed above exclude destination and delivery charges. Look for Toyota’s redesigned flagship sedan at dealerships in early December.
