2020 Avalon TRD vs. 2020 Base Avalon

Within Toyota’s sedan lineup, the Avalon has built its reputation on a tranquil driving experience. For 2020, Toyota thrills drivers seeking a more spirited ride with the new TRD trim, a sport-tuned Avalon variation that complements its quality, comfort, and power with Toyota Racing Development gear.


The essential difference between the Avalon and its TRD variation is their driving experience. The Avalon has always been a gentle cruiser with a relaxingly smooth ride and cushioned suspension. This holds true in the 2020 model, while the TRD trim enhances performance with refreshingly nimble handling. All 2020 Avalon models run on a 301-horsepower V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, and the TRD makes the most of the potent powertrain with specialized gear. On this trim level, you’ll find enhanced shocks and springs, a cat-back exhaust, bigger front brakes, and heartier chassis brakes. The trim’s active cornering assist feature helps you carve corners with confidence by applying brake force to the inner drive wheel.


Even before you start the engine, you’ll notice that the Avalon TRD sets itself apart with sporty style changes inside and out. The exterior presents a unique honeycomb grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, and pinstriping. On the inside, the TRD’s thoroughly bolstered seating comes with red seat belts, and you’ll see red stitching across the cabin. Each headrest carries the TRD logo as well.

Fresh Technology

The TRD trim is the latest addition that Toyota has made to their full-sized sedan. The Avalon was completely redesigned in 2019, hitting the road with a high-quality interior, refined ride, abundance of technology options, and excellent safety test scores. In very trim level, the elegant Avalon comes standard with a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system for easy control of HD Radio, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay®, Bluetooth®*, satellite radio, and onboard Wi-Fi. The TRD trim can also be equipped with JBL sound and a navigation system.
