All this is contained within a robust body structure designed to meet side impact standards that take into account higher-riding vehicles such as SUVs.
This is a vehicle consumers can drive with confidence in so many ways, said Tony Wearing, Managing Director of Toyota Canada Inc. For 2007,

Under the hood, the front-wheel drive Avalon is equipped with the most powerful V6 engine offered in a North American Toyota vehicle. The 3.5-litre, 24-valve V6 produces an impressive 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb/ft of torque at 4,700 rpm.
The engine is equipped with dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent (VVT-i) for increased high-speed torque, improved fuel economy, and lower emissions. A dual-stage variable intake manifold optimizes engine breathing and fuel efficiency.
As a result, the Avalon can effortlessly ac
The 3.5-litre V6 engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic Super ECT (electronically-controlled) transmission. Super ECT allows the Engine Control Module to manage shift decisions based on engine speed and load, so that every shift is precise and seamless. It also monitors throttle position, road speed, power requirements and operating temperature to efficiently direct gear selection and adjust shift points to driving demands. Sequential multi-mode shifting capability enables the driver to control gearshifts manually, when desired.
BUILT TO BE SAFE
Avalon's stylish body structure is built to meet the latest side impact standards, which take into account higher-riding vehicles such as SUVs. Standard front seat-mounted side airbags, and front and rear head side-curtain airbags, provide protection in side impacts. The Avalon also features a driver's knee airbag as standard equipment.
The standard Anti-lock Brake system (ABS) can help the driver maintain steering control during sudden stops by preventing brake lock-up, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) optimizes braking pressure at each wheel to help minimize body dive or sway during hard braking and cornering. Additionally, standard Brake Assist (BA) on the Avalon XLS can help the driver take full advantage of the ABS in emergency situations. The system is designed to determine if the driver is attempting emergency braking and, if the driver has not stepped firmly enough on the brake pedal to activate the ABS, it applies maximum braking pressure until pedal pressure is released.
To add even more stopping power and directional control, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) uses throttle intervention in conjunction with the ABS actuators and sensors to help maintain directional stability under adverse road conditions. The system's traction control helps redu
