2020 Toyota Avalon Trd Priced At $43,255

2020 Toyota Avalon TRD priced at $43,255

Last November, Toyota pulled back the covers on the 2020 Avalon TRD and 2020 Camry TRD, and we've been waiting on pricing ever since. Half of our question has been answered now that Cars Direct spied an order guide for the Avalon TRD. MSRP for the bigger sedan comes in at $42,300, plus a destination charge of $955, totaling $43,255. That copies the formula for Toyota truck pricing, where all but one TRD versions slot underneath the top trim. The Avalon TRD's cost puts it $200 above the Limited model and $200 below the Touring trim. If that seems like fuzzy math, it's because as of writing, Toyota hasn't updated its U.S. site with 2020 Avalon prices. The new MSRPs and their changes compared to 2019 are:

  • XLE FWD, $36,755 ($150 more than in 2019)
  • XLE Hybrid FWD, $37,805 ($200 more)
  • XSE FWD, $39,255 ($150 more)
  • XSE Hybrid FWD, $40,305 ($200 more)
  • Limited FWD, $43,055 ($150 more)
  • TRD FWD $43,255
  • Touring FWD, $43,455 ($150 more)
  • Limited Hybrid FWD, $44,105 ($200 more)
For that money, the Avalon TRD is like sliding Joe Gibbs Racing NASCAR coveralls over a pair of Dockers and a blue Oxford button-down. Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, the TRD trim can do more with the available power compared to the XSE trim that shares the same motor. The TRD benefits from thicker unibody bracing for a stiffer shell, exclusive dampers, springs that lower the car by 0.6 inches, and larger 12.9-inch front rotors with twin-piston calipers. New bodywork includes an unforgettable front fascia, sharper side skirts, a decklid spoiler, rear diffuser, and 19-inch matte black wheels that shed 18 pounds compared to the stock XSE wheels. Tinted taillights further highlight the look, the cat-back exhaust highlights the sound. Inside, front seat passengers sit in Sport SofTex seats with red accents, embroidered headrests, and red seat belts. The leather-wrapped steering wheel matches with red contrast stitching, and TRD-branded floor mats grace the footwells. 2020 Camry TRD pricing should be out soon, since both sedans are due at dealerships by the end of September.

Acura Tlc Pmc Hand-built Edition Priced Over $50,000, Deliveries Begin - Autoblog

Acura TLC PMC hand-built edition priced over $50,000, deliveries begin - Autoblog

Acura unveiled the 2020 TLX PMC Edition sedan at this year's New York Auto Show along with the MDX PMC Edition Prototype. Both models adopt the same hand-finished build processes employed at Honda's Performance Manufacturing Center to create the Acura NSX. In the case of the sedan, that means a body-in-white pulled off the line at Honda's Marysville plant so that PMC technicians can install the interior, drivetrain, suspension, wiring harnesses, and electronics. After that, the TLX PMC undergoes the same quality control checks conducted on the NSX, including a dyno run and water leak test. The price: $50,945, which includes $1,995 for handling and destination. In addition to the craftsmanship, the sedan combines two options that normally cannot be combined, the A-Spec and Advance Packages. They install the 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the A-Spec's stiffer dampers and quicker steering ratio, plus sharper exterior components like the restyled bumper, larger exhaust tips, and gloss black roof panel. Comfort features include heated and ventilated front sport seats, leather and Alcantara seating, black leather steering wheel, black headliner, surround-view camera, heated rear seats, and Acura's 10-speaker ELS Studio audio system. Cosmetic go-fast changes are seen in the red instrument cluster and red accent lighting. The whole package gets drenched in Valencia Red Pearl paint formerly exclusive to the NSX but making one special appearance here, the crimson infused with mica, metal flake and "nano pigments" for keener color. Black, 10-spoke, 19-inch wheels anchor the sedan to the road. The U.S. will see just 360 examples of the TLX PMC, each one numbered with a plaque on the dash. Deliveries to dealers begin this month — each sedan transported in a single-car carrier. The entire production run is scheduled to take six months, after which we're told Acura will begin working on the MDX PMC.

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus Priced From $37,445

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus priced from $37,445

The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus starts at $37,445 including destination fees. That's a $7,360 price increase over a base 2019 Leaf. For that extra dough you get a larger battery pack for more range, bringing the EPA-rated number up to 226 miles. A base Leaf will take you 150 miles with a full charge. More power is also on tap for the Leaf Plus — up 54 horsepower and 14 pound-feet of torque — and you can read what we think of the new car here.

That starting price is for the entry-level S trim. Stepping up to the mid-grade SV you're looking at a $39,405 Leaf, and the top-tier SL will ring in at a much higher $43,445. So yes, the long-range Leaf gets pricey quickly, but a lot of the equipment added is well worth your time. When you step up to the SV you get the portable charge cable, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, fog lights, adaptive cruise control and the new eight-inch infotainment system. You are also granted the ability to check some option boxes that aren't available on the base S.
