2019 toyota avalon
The 2019 Toyota Avalon was recently revealed at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It is built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) and will come in four trim options, including hybrid versions.

The 2019 Toyota Avalon will include a new V6 engine, more safety features, and adaptive suspension, which is a first for Toyota. The adaptive suspension will improve handling and make the Toyota Avalon easy to drive.

The all-new 2019 Toyota Avalon has a sleek design. According to Automobile, it features a “wide, open front grille” and “in other places, the design is uncharacteristically angular and aggressive.” Inside, the new Avalon is upscale with available leather, wood, or aluminum trim.

Each 2019 Toyota Avalon will come standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense P. This includes emergency brakes, radar-guided cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, blind spot monitoring, pre-collision with pedestrian detection, and more.

The 2019 Toyota Avalon will be available later this year. In the meantime, visit Clint Bowyer Autoplex in Emporia, Kansas, or browse our Toyota inventory here.

winter car maintenance
The winter months are here, and we all know Kansas weather can be unpredictable. Be sure to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance and keep a few supplies handy to prepare for winter driving.

It’s always important to make sure that your vehicle’s maintenance is up-to-date. Small problems can lead to bigger problems, and the last thing you’d want is to be stranded in the cold, winter weather. Remember to check the following:

Battery — It’s more difficult for batteries to operate in cool weather, so be sure yours is working well. If you notice your engine is sluggish when starting, the check engine light is on, there’s corrosion around the cable connections, or the battery is at least three years old, you may need service.

Coolant — Coolant, or antifreeze, keeps your engine from freezing in cold temperatures, so it’s important to make sure it doesn’t get too low. Check your coolant reservoir and see that it reaches the “full” line. Also, be sure to check your owner’s manual to find out the proper coolant type for your vehicle.

Tires — Tire pressure can drop along with air temperature, so regularly check that yours are appropriately filled. Also, check your tire tread to make sure you’ll have good traction on cold pavement and snowy or icy roads.

In addition, keep a survival kit in case of an emergency. We recommend an ice scraper, extra gloves, blankets, flares, sand or kitty litter, tire chains, a flashlight, jumper cables, cell phone, cell phone charger, snacks and water.

2018 chrysler pacifica
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was recently named Best Car to Buy by Green Car Reports. It was chosen over every other green car made available during the 2018 model year, and according to The Drive, “[took] into account new technologies, their practicality, and their impact on the environment.”

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a seven-seat minivan with a plug-in hybrid powertrain and is the first minivan ever made to be a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. It gets an EPA-estimated 84 highway mpg and an EPA-estimated 33 total electric driving range.

John Voelcker, Senior Editor at Green Car Reports, says, “The virtues of the basic Chrysler Pacifica are well-documented: It’s stylish, with an interior design far more elegant than you’d expect, plus excellent controls and interactive displays and more family-friendly features than we have space to cover. Adding a plug-in hybrid powertrain to that package, at a price that’s essentially offset by the full federal income-tax credit, makes a very good vehicle exceptional.”
