Description: In America, if you want a big Toyota, you go for the Avalon. Want a more luxurious Toyota? That'd be a Lexus then. But in the automaker's home market, Toyota has topped the luxury market wit...

Because engine can make the same figures and not be the same engine... doesn't happen often but it does
Megan Moody Dec 27, 2012
Ha! Crown royal. They would sell a ton of these here. Add some dubs, vinyl roof. Yeah playa!
Zaire Wilkins Dec 27, 2012
@william so why does the supra has the exact same 3.0 320hp 315 torque idk
Jag Love Dec 26, 2012
Whereas the Cressida never did have a jz series engine, it wasn't just offered with the 7M-GE, however. Depending on the market & generation it was also fitted with the 5M-E, 5M-GE, 4-ME, 3T, 18R, etc... even a diesel, the L-series.
William Downs Dec 26, 2012
No that's a Mitsubishi 3.0 V6 in them
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
ok question isnt the 2jz motor inside the mitsubishi 3000gt and dodge stealth from the 98 supra
William Downs Dec 26, 2012
Chad the n/a version of the 2jz-GTE is a 2jz-ge... and the cressida never got a jz series engine, just the 7m-ge
Jesse Williams Dec 26, 2012
Toyota used to make a car called a Corona. It's funny how they had cars that had the same name as alcohol brands.
Chad Collins Dec 26, 2012
The Cressida was a rwd and shared no similarities with the Avalon or the Camry. It had the optional 1JZGTE which was the non-turbo version of the 2JZGTE that came in the supra.
William Downs Dec 26, 2012
The cressida was never a Camry, cressida was rwd and is the predessussor to the Avalon... camrys more Lucy form is the solara... aka the Camry coupe
Tin Nguyen Dec 26, 2012
Cressida was not a camry. Both existed at the same time.
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
@saad how are you telling me the cressida was never a camry it was always big which was killed and renamed as the avalon
Saad Syed Dec 26, 2012
@zaire Avalon is a different car, it has nothing to do with a Cressida. I'd say Camry is more like the Cressida.
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
im glad toyota changed the name from cressida to avalon that was just to take away maxima coustomers
Lou Guerrero Dec 26, 2012
For what they are, avalons are great cars. Big, super comfy cruisers. Perfect road trip car.
Cindy Ngo Jan 25, 2013
Man a driffrent sign of Toyota?
Megan Moody Dec 27, 2012
Ok. The grill is an arrow pointing down.
Madjid Mirmohamadsadeghi Dec 27, 2012
Hideous
Janak Solanki Dec 26, 2012
You know I thought it looked ok until I saw the grill. Is that modeled after those pine-tree air fresheners?
Ethan Amo Dec 26, 2012
Looking sharp
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Dec 26, 2012
Yeah, Toyotas are super boring! The only Toyota I like is the Land Cruiser 100.
Roman Podrezov Dec 26, 2012
I think Toyotas are the most boring and awful looking cars on the road, except for the FJ Cruiser.
Dylan Bruder Dec 26, 2012
Uhh.......
Matt Piccolo Dec 26, 2012
It's okay, there's too much going on in the front though
Author Norman R. Colson Dec 26, 2012
Boring....
Mati Araujo Dec 26, 2012
Thats a very ugly grill
Carlton Salmon Dec 26, 2012
Looks like the child of a Lexus LS and a Transformer! And an ugly child as well!
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
LS-Camry

Toyota does not rival Germans.
Adam Beiersdorfer Dec 26, 2012
Doesn't seem very competitive to me... But hey... I'm a German sort of person anyway
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
its a 2.5 liter V6 but infiniti got 218 out of their 2.5 liter V6
Drew Humphrey Dec 26, 2012
Luxury has 178 HP?
Kyle McCullough Dec 26, 2012
They can only get that much power from a V6? I know it's small for a six, but come on.

I'd call a car brand introduced to a market 7 years ago fairly recent
Darryle Moody Dec 26, 2012
Do your homework on Toyota. The introduction of "Lexus" is not recent. It was introduced to Japan in 2005. Toyota planned on selling 50,000 units a year, they struggle to move 19,000 a year. The Japanese prefer BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Madjid Mirmohamadsadeghi Dec 27, 2012
Crown royal, is that not a whiskey brand?
Jordan Jackson Dec 26, 2012
William, they're saying it looks like a Chinese copy, not that it is one
William Downs Dec 26, 2012
Not Chinese... Toyota is from japan
Janak Solanki Dec 26, 2012
It is the year of the Chinese copycat indeed.
Chase Huddles Dec 26, 2012
Headlights reminded me somewhat of Seat's.
Justin Chavez Dec 26, 2012
Yea looks like a weird chinese copycat car
Wissam Nasr Dec 26, 2012
Very confused design, sure does look Chinese
Michael Nascimento Dec 26, 2012
Grill looks like the designer was drawing it and sneezed half way through.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Dec 26, 2012
Looks Chineese.
Dylan Bruder Dec 26, 2012
That grill is terrible
Logan Delony Dec 26, 2012
Yuck.
Anthony Ngo Dec 29, 2012
I think this car looks pretty clean and sharp however I think the grille is a bit overboard.
Jordan Jackson Dec 26, 2012
@ethan: thank you captain obvious...
Janak Solanki Dec 26, 2012
If they changed that retarded grill it might not look half bad.
Tim Puckett Dec 26, 2012
@ethan thanks you I was not aware thats what haters do...
Ethan Amo Dec 26, 2012
Haters gonna hate. That's all I got to say.
Justin Routh Dec 26, 2012
You'd have to be crazy to buy this

Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
i call it a remix grill of the 2013 LS450
Brendon Davis Dec 26, 2012
Interior: Great. Rear: Pretty good. Front: WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING?!
Cindy Ngo Jan 25, 2013
Kind a mixture of the lexus GS and ls
Mike Bakhsheshi Dec 26, 2012
Looks great... Kinda like a mixture of the Avalon, Lexus GS, and the lines of an Infiniti towards the front. :)
Matt Piccolo Dec 26, 2012
Back looks great!
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
soo idk how this looks like a GS
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
the new GS reminds me of a sonata from the back
Christopher McSween Dec 26, 2012
Remind me of the new GS.
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
wow this should have been in the US but as a lexus
Mark Fei Ling Dec 26, 2012
Interior looks like 300c's upper east cousin
Gurjit Singh Dec 26, 2012
no fuckers that logo aint goin anywhere do whatever the fcuk u can do lol
Matt Piccolo Dec 26, 2012
Wow! That's really nice!
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
@ david ok and it has to go
Jason Brown Dec 26, 2012
They still make the older styles of these for luxury taxis in Japan. Taking a taxi, especially these can be very expensive. The driver presses a button to open/close the rear passenger doors. Pretty cool.
Lou Guerrero Dec 26, 2012
My comment was meant for the 3/4 exterior shot to the left of this.
David Munasinghe Dec 26, 2012
@zaire. It a crown on the steering not a T and it is the traditional crown logo .
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
thT logo on the steering wheel has to go
Lou Guerrero Dec 26, 2012
VIP anyone?
Janak Solanki Dec 26, 2012
Ok the interior is nice.
Connor Scanlon Dec 26, 2012
This is beautiful
Mohammed Abdulaziz Ghandoura Dec 26, 2012
Bring the Crown back to Saudi Arabia! We don't want Buick-ized Camrys over here any more
Author Norman R. Colson Dec 26, 2012
Lots of legroom though
