Both these mainstream performance variants of the Avalon and Camry sedans will debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto show
Toyota will be storing new surprises for the people at the upcoming 2018 Los Angeles Auto show. They will be showcasing two new performance-oriented models at the show and already started teasing them. The Japanese automaker headed to Twitter and dropped a teaser image of the upcoming cars which looks like performance oriented TRD variants of their Avalon and Camry sedan.
Although not much information is available at this moment but there is no doubt that these are high-performance oriented variants of the standard vehicles which are quite clear from their upgraded exterior. The TRD variants of these cars get new body kits with red body stripes along with sportier wheels and tires.
Although they haven’t revealed any details about the powertrain and performance figures however, you can expect them to get some upgrades as well. The TRD variants will be based on their XSE trim. Few reports online suggested that the upcoming cars will get a differently tuned suspension setup for improved handling.
Under the hood, Toyota will definitely play some of their magic tricks to make these cars more responsive and powerful which will make them stand out from the standard variants. Toyota will most probably use a powerful 3.5 Liter V6 engine which will produce about 301 Hp of peak power.
This is definitely impressive power figures for a front wheel drive sedan. If we not wrong Toyota could also fit a different sports exhaust which could improve the overall power output by some horses. However, too much Horsepower will take a toll on the chassis.
The Toyota Camry and Avalon TRD high-performance variants will face some stiff competition from the Ford Fusion Sport which produces around 325 Hp of peak power, Buick Regal GS producing about 310 Hp of peak power and also with the Dodge Charger as well in the International markets. We will update you with more details as soon as the car debuts at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto show on the 28th of November.
