DUB Magazine Builds an Avalon with Attitude for the SEMA Show

Úrban Lifestyle Mag Brings Signature Look to Toyota's Newest Ride

DÚB Magazine, a name synonymous wîth incredible wheels on cool custom cars wîth inner-city influence, has rendered its urban touch to the newest car in the Toyota lineup: the 2013 Avalon. In creating its latest ride, DÚB has taken the new Avalon where few, if any, have gone before. The magazine's unique take on the Avalon makes its debut on Oct. 30 at the Toyota booth in the 2012 SEMA Show.

'DÚB has proven here that the new Avalon makes a sharp urban ride,' noted Toyota Engagement Marketing and Motorsports National Manager Keith Dahl. 'Their modifications give it an aggressive, yet classy look that might have been unexpected in the previous generation.'

DÚB's signature look begins wîth big 22-inch TIS wheels wîth a matte black finish wrapped in ultra-low-profile Pirelli tires. The wheel/tire combo uses every millimeter of space in the wheel wells and combined wîth a lowered suspension, give the Avalon an audacious stance.

Taking the look a few steps further, DÚB deployed a well-integrated custom lower body kit, re-sprayed the exterior in Brilliant Black and de-chromed the body. Tinted windows and
taillights continue the theme and a custom mesh grille notably changes the front view.

Power: 231 hp
Torque: 215 ft-lbs

6-speed Automatic
The interior gets plenty of attention, too, wîth liberally applied suede accents on the console, door panels and headliner. The seats receive plush diamond-pattern suede inserts, wîth DÚB logos sewn into the seatbacks. And like the exterior, everything is black inside.


No urban ride would be complete without a pulsing sound system and the DÚB Avalon delivers. JBL provides the hardware and DÚB's designers used virtually all of the Avalon's generous trunk space to house three massive subwoofers and an impressive array of amplifiers. The clean installation belies the bone-shaking sound that surely awaits.

Starting Oct. 30, the DÚB Avalon can be seen along wîth eight other new and unique custom-built Toyota vehicles at the 2012 SEMA Show. They will be in Central Hall at the Toyota display booth #24801.

At times compared to a Lexus, from the outside the Toyota Avalon might be a bland looking four-door, but on the inside the combination of luxurious roominess, safety, ride comfort and value you wouldn't be able to find elsewhere. The Avalon emerged as one of the 10 best cars sold in North American in terms of problem-free operation in a recent J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study. Originally based on the platform of the then-current Toyota Camry, the Toyota Avalon is a full-size car that was produced by Toyota in the U.S. and Australia. The Avalon was produced as a front wheel drive four-door sedan.

When the Toyotta Cressida was deleted from the American car market in 1992 and the Toyota Avalon was designed to fill the gap left by that vehicle. Though the Cressida was a midsize, rear wheel drive vehicle, the all new Avalon was a full size, rear wheel drive car and had Toyota's 1MZ-FE V6 engine, compared to the Cressida's 7M-GE I6 engine.

On February 21, 1994, the first Avalon rolled off the assembly line in Georgetown, Kentucky as a 1995 model. In 1999, a second-generation model was released in the U.S. and Japan. Built in the same plant as the Camry, the 1995 Avalon was a completely new model that was placed higher than the Camry, making it Toyota's flagship.

Larger in almost every aspect, the second generation Avalon was introduced in 2004. Based on a stretched Camry platform, the Avalon featured a 3.0 L V6 engine that produced 192 hp and 210 ft – lb of torque. Minor updates to the front and rear fascias were underwent in 1998, along with the power rating being upped to 200 hp and increase of torque to 214 lb – ft. Basically the same size as the Camry, the second generation Avalon was US made and was exported to Japan's domestic market where it was labeled as the Toyota Pronard.

The original, first-generation Avalon still continues to be built in Australia in the Melbourne suburb of Altona. The original model is produced in both right hand drive for New Zealand, Australia and various parts of Asia, and left hand drive for the Middle East. Toyota was now in what it called its ‘Mark III' phase with the Australian Avalon. Though based on the same car launched in the US in 1995, the Australian Avalon had a slight facelift for the 2004 model year. In July of 2005 Toyota Australia ended production of the Avalon. Toyota of Australia was now concentrating on producing a vehicle much larger than the Avalon in late 2006 that will compete with the Holden Commodore and the Ford Falcon. Introduced at the 2006 Melbourne International Motorshow, the all new Aurion was unveiled and will go on sale in November of 2006.

A complete redesign from previous generations, the '05 Avalon is Toyota's largest, most luxurious, and most costly model sold under its own nameplate. Inside the Avalon was a 3.5 L 280 hp V6 engine along with a host of advanced technological features. Produced to compete with the Chevy Impala, the Buick LaCrosse, Nissan Maxima and the Ford Five Hundred, the new Avalon was unveiled at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. Featuring much more distinctive styling than previous generations, the third generation Avalon did have power dropped to 268 hp due to new SAE specifications along with torque dropping to 248 ft-lb. For 2005 stability control was expanded to the XL and Touring models and a keyless remote start became standard for Limited models.
