While the 2021 Toyota Avalon is the third entry in the fifth generation of the Avalon, the 2021 model year still sees some changes that will make people look at it differently. The Avalon strives to rebuild its prospects by adding long-awaited All-Wheel Drive and balancing it out with a 4-Cylinder engine.
While moving from a V6 to a 4-Cylinder engine may seem like a detrimental change, the inclusion of All-Wheel Drive allows the Avalon to compete in more markets and show off its modern styling against other stale-looking large sedans. The 2021 Toyota Avalon adopts a new Nightshade Edition trim to spar with crowd-favorite blackened trims. Refer to the chart below for a quick run-down of the specifications and features available on the 2021 Toyota Avalon.
