2021 Toyota Avalon for Sale in Smithfield, RI
The Toyota Avalon has always been a dependable and well-appointed sedan, one that could easily fit into a premium lineup. For 2021, this comfortable, plush, and versatile four-door flaunts some notable upgrades, such as the availability of an all-wheel drivetrain for the XLE and Limited trim levels, a new XSE Nightshade Edition that employs several blacked-out exterior accents, and the introduction of Android Auto as part of the standard infotainment setup. There’s also a 2021 Avalon Hybrid, but we’ll just focus on the gas-only version here.
Trims and Features
The 2021 Toyota Avalon is sold in five trim levels: XLE, XSE Nightshade, TRD, Touring, and Limited. For a base trim, the XLE is very well stocked, getting LED headlights and taillights, a chrome grille, heated side mirrors with turn-signal and blind-spot indicators, 17-inch wheels, a sound-reducing windshield, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic engine shutoff, heated simulated-leather front seats, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and ignition, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A wireless smartphone charger and a sunroof are optional.
The XSE Nightshade adds the charger and sunroof, along with 19-inch blacked-out wheels and exterior accents, a sport mesh grille, simulated-leather and suede heated front seats, and aluminum sport pedals. This trim’s options include a sport-tuned exhaust and engine sound enhancement. The TRD is enhanced with a lower ride height, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, non-adaptive dampers with internal return springs, hardwearing underbody braces, larger front brake rotors with two-piston calipers (one-piston for the others), and a throaty exhaust system. Inside, there’s an assortment of TRD badges and contrast-red accents.
The Touring does without the TRD’s performance attributes and focuses on comfort and convenience with memory functions for the side mirrors, an auto-dimming driver’s side mirror, heated rear outboard seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, ambient interior lighting, and a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. The range-topping Limited outfits 18-inch wheels, premium leather-upholstered heated and ventilated front seats, memory functions for the driver’s seat and steering wheel, and a wood-trimmed interior. A surround-view camera system is offered for both the Touring and Limited.
The gasoline-only versions of the 2021 Toyota Avalon have two powertrain choices: the standard 3.5-liter V6 (301 hp and 267 lb.-ft. of torque) and the available 2.5-liter four-cylinder (205 hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque), which is only offered on the XLE and Limited in conjunction with all-wheel drive. They all get an eight-speed automatic transmission with Shiftmatic mode. Front-wheel drive is standard on all, but, as mentioned, the XLE and Limited grades can be ordered with all-wheel drive and the smaller engine.
Safety and Technology
The XLE, XSE Nightshade, and TRD are furnished with an infotainment system with a 9-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a USB media port, four USB charge ports, an eight-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. The Touring and Limited get integrated navigation and a premium 14-speaker JBL audio system, which are both offered as options for the other trims.
Each version of the 2021 Toyota Avalon is provided with the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) suite of active driver aids. This includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is also included on all trims, and an intelligent clearance sonar system with rear cross-traffic braking is offered for the Touring and Limited.
