Toyota Avalon Sedan Livery Edition

It seems the Japanese carmaker Toyota will provide a livery edition of the 2013 Avalon sedan. This will have a black-on-black color scheme and will also offer heated seats and individual heating and cooling controls for rear seat passengers. Also two different Avalon livery models ill be produced. One of them is a V6 model that has as base the XLE trim and the other one is a hybrid version that has as base the XLE Premium grade. Under the hood it has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder hybrid power train capable of using only 40 mpg of fuel. Apparently there are 12.000 livery operators nationwide with an average fleet size ranging from 12 to 18 vehicles. Livery operators keep their cars in service for around five years on average, driving around 40-50.000 limes per year. The new 2013 Toyota Avalon has a great styling, comfort, performance and hybrid fuel economy and so it is an attractive sedan for livery operators.

Now, the V6 variant of the Avalon livery model begins with an XLE grade and adds rear HVAC. When it comes to the gasoline engine, under the hood it hides a 3.5-liter DOHC engine capable of generating 268 horsepower which are then being sent to the heels through a 6-speed automatic transmission, which in the end offers the possibility to obtain a 25 mpg fuel economy. As standard, the model also has 10 airbags, 8-speaker Display Audio system, Smart Key for the front doors, heated outside mirrors and to transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 17-inch alloy wheels. The livery package has a price established at $31.360.

The 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is powered by a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle, 4-cylinder engine mated to an electronic Continuously Variable Transmission that incorporates electric motors that receive power from a Nickel-Metal hybrid battery. In the end the output reaches 200 horsepower. The Avalon Hybrid Livery model with the XLE Premium grade costs $33.750. The model will be available for purchase starting December, this year. The retail suggested price of the manufacturer does not include the delivery, processing and handling fee that goes up to $795. Source: autoblog via cars-specifications.com
