The 2015 Chicago auto show opens next week, and this week Toyota has been busy prepping us for the three new models they plan to showcase at the event. Well, one new model and two special edition models that will be shown in Chicago ahead of their 2016MY debut.
Facelifted 2016 Toyota Avalon
The star of the show, and the only one that Toyota is giving us a real teaser for, is the 2016 Toyota Avalon. This is a mid-cycle refresh for the fourth-generation full-size sedan, and all we know so far is that the front fascia will get a major overhaul with a new chrome-outlined hexagonal lower grille. The front lip looks slightly more aggressive, and it looks like the LEDs have been redesigned with new vertical LEDs.
The exterior design is all-around more refined than the current model’s, and we expect that the interior will get similar treatment with new upholstery and trim options, along with several new tech. updates. We expect the powertrain options to remain totally the same.
Toyota Camry Special Edition
Along with the facelifted Avalon, Toyota will showcase limited, Special Edition versions of their 2016 Camry and Corolla.
The Toyota Camry special edition will be based on the normal Toyota Camry SE trim. Toyota has added custom 18-inch alloys with glossy black accents. It will also get unique Special Edition badging, smoked taillights, and will be available in either Blizzard Pearl or Blue Streak Metallic.
The interior will be stylized with vibrant blue stitching to contrast the black-and-chrome interior. Even the gauges will get sleek electric blue dials.
Toyota Corolla Special Edition
The Toyota Corolla special edition get similar treatment to the Camry, with the biggest difference being the red color scheme instead of blue. It will be based on the Corolla S Plus, with rich, glossy black alloys, Special Edition badging just like the Camry’s, and three new color options – Black Sand Pearl, Super White and Absolutely Red (pictured).
Again, the limited Corolla’s interior gets largely the same treatment as the Camry’s, except the contrast stitching is red instead of blue.
Toyota plans to build 12,000 special edition Camrys and 8,000 Corollas, so if you like what you see at the Chicago Auto Show next week, be sure to order yours ASAP. Alternatively, if you want something more affordable, you can check out our Integrity Exports auction database to find cars like this:
