Toyota has released a teaser image for its 2015 Chicago Auto Show exhibit, the 2016 Toyota Avalon (facelift). While the overly dark teaser image doesn't give away much, a digital enhancement exposes all the changes.

Engine options for the current Avalon include a 3.5-litre V6 petrol and a petrol hybrid, which should stay unchanged.

In comparison to the current Avalon, the facelifted version has a redesigned bumper and airdam, and re-arranged LED Daytime Running Lamps in the headlamp cluster. And the grille appears to be sleeker than before, too.

Online reports speculate on the good chances of a new look interior in the 2016 model. The side profile and the rear could also get subtly updated.

Powering the vehicle is a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine that makes 268 hp at 6,200 rpm and 336 Nm of torque at 4,700 rpm. On the other hand, the hybrid version uses a 2.5-litre engine mated to an AC motor, both of which make a combined power output of 200 hp.
