Some Toyota and Lexus Cars (Finally) Getting CarPlay This Year

Toyota to debut Apple CarPlay integration with 2019 Avalon

Other brands such as Ford have also started offering support for Amazon Alexa as built-in vehicle features. Along those lines comes some of the biggest news not just for the Avalon but for Toyota in general.

Toyota's flagship four-door sedan will also be its first model in North America to offer integration for Apple iPhones.

Toyota's exclusive Entune 3.0 system is now available on select 2018 Camry and Sienna models, however those systems will unfortunately go without a CarPlay-enabling upgrade, the company confirmed in its press release, while adding that it's still finalizing details on which of its other 2019 models will be graced with support for Apple's infotainment system.

One of the car's designers told motoring.com.au you have to include drama to sell a sedan in today's SUV-mad world.

XLE and XSE passengers can listen to crisp tunes on a standard eight-speaker system having Entune 3.0 Audio Plus with Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link App and Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect, featuring new in-vehicle third-party applications.

In a welcome addition, Toyota now offers Apple CarPlay and compatibility with Amazon's Alex and smart watches in addition to its proprietary Entune infotainment system.

Walmart Increases Compensation, Cites Tax Reform
McMillon also said the company is "early in the stages of assessing the opportunities" that tax reform creates for Walmart. Dale Mabry Highway returned a voice recording that said the store is closed Thursday, Jan. 11, but would reopen Friday.

More information is conveyed to the driver through a 7-inch screen in the gauge cluster and an available 10-inch head-up display projected onto the windshield.

Toyota made it clear Monday that it's fifth-generation Avalon is geared toward customers who've come to love the brand while also doing more to appeal to a younger crowd that wants features and style of the modern era. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is also part of the standard equipment set. The Avalon Hybrid will also be available in those models except for the touring edition.

Although Toyota did not give exact power figures for the engines, both are similar dimensionally and have identical compression ratios to the Camry's powerplants: 301 hp and 267 lb-ft for the 2GR-FKS V-6 and 203 hp and 184 lb-ft for the A25A-FXS four-banger hybrid.

The Toyota Avalon looks good, but is the tech up to it? And the Avalon stays a front driver, bucking the all-wheel drive trend.

The company debuted the redesigned 2019 Avalon, a full-size sedan.

The 2019 Avalon's design features more creases and angularity-perhaps following the Nissan Maxima ever so slightly-and is longer, lower, and wider than before.
