When you buy a vehicle, it’s always nice to know where it’s been before you decide where it’s going… right? That’s where we come in! The 2014 Toyota Avalon in Orlando is currently a huge fan favorite – it packs sleek style, sophisticated technology, a reliable performance, and tons of luxury into one affordable package. However, do you know where it got its roots and how much it’s evolved since its introduction onto the market? Toyota of Orlando has the info you need before you decide to sign the dotted line!
The 2014 Toyota Avalon celebrates 20 years!
This new Toyota in Orlando has been around for twenty years – it first came onto the market in 1994, and only two trim-levels were available (as compared to the seven models available to you right now)! It also had performance on the brain – it offered a 3.0L V6 engine that churned out 200 horsepower for an exciting ride!
- In 2000, the second generation of the Orlando Toyota Avalon rolled out to much fanfare. It boasted new advanced safety technology (like stability control and brake assist, among others), as well as variable valve timing, which enhanced both fuel efficiency and performance capabilities. Even the interior got a slight makeover, making it more ergonomic and attuned to the driver’s needs.
- 2005 brought yet another generation of the new Toyota Avalon in Orlando to the automotive world! You’d find four new trim-levels up for grabs – you could now choose from the XL, XLS, Limited, and Touring… and a new 3.5L V6 engine was also up for grabs! Other options elements included a slick black leather interior, 17” alloy wheels, slick aluminum accents, and a retuned suspension for incredible handling capabilities.
- In 2009, new safety technology was thrown into the mix – stability control became a standard feature! Additionally, between 2009 and 2011 Toyota discontinued the Touring and XLS trim-levels of the new Toyota Avalon to make way for bigger and better things to come.
This new Toyota in Orlando got a huge redesign in 2013!
- 2013 brought those bigger and better things – this was the year that truly put the Orlando Toyota Avalon on the map. A redesign brought it to the forefront of the automotive world in no time. The exterior was now sleek, sporty, and muscular – more like a sports car than the typical sedan the car had been before. It was also packed to the gills with technology, like wireless charging, navigation, Entune, and touchscreen audio features; the interior also got upgrades with a plush leather design, as well as white ice ambient lighting and cool chrome accents!
