Toyota to unveil facelifted 2016 Avalon in Chicago

By ,

Full-size sedan buyers need to circle February 12th on their calendar as Toyota chose the Chicago Auto Show to unveil the all-new 2016 Avalon.

Now in its fourth generation, the Toyota Avalon is set to receive a mid-cycle update with newly styled headlights, vertical fog lights, a sporty-looking front bumper, as well as an hexagonal grille that's larger in size and with a bit less chrome.

As for powertrains, Toyota did not provide any information, but logic tells us that the 268-horsepower, 3.5L V6 will be back along with the 154-horsepower, 2.5L hybrid unit (the latter being absent from the Canadian market).

Expect new trim options and minor revisions inside the 2016 Toyota Avalon.
