2012 Toyota Aurion


The launch of 3.5-litre V6 quad cam Toyota Aurion has completed the roll-out of Toyota's portfolio of new Australia-made models.
The substantially upgraded five-model Toyota Aurion range has been capped at a price beneath $50,000.
It is Toyota's locally made flagship and is being promoted as an attainable luxury car.
Aurion's distinctive styling and occupant comfort levels provide clear differentiation.
Second generation Aurion is the most powerful Toyota made in Australia.

Toyota has boosted Aurion V6's fuel economy by 6.1 per cent and reduced CO2 emissions by 7.7 per cent.
New-generation Aurion has official combined-cycle fuel economy of 9.3 litres/100km.
CO2 emissions have been cut to 215g/km.
Aurion's fuel-saving technology also includes a newly adopted TS (Torque-sensor Swash plate) air-conditioning compressor.
Toyota Aurion has the best balance of power and economy in the locally manufactured large six-cylinder vehicle segment.
Aurion's all-alloy quad cam dual-VVT-i delivers 200kW of power at 6200rpm and 336Nm of torque at 4700rpm.
It is matched to an electronically-controlled six-speed sequential-shift transmission, with paddle shift on Sportivo models.
Toyota has achieved the fuel and emissions saving with special attention paid to the engine and gearing.
New Aurion has reduced oil-relative friction losses thanks to a change in engine oil viscosity.

Toyota Aurion's 3.5-litre all-alloy quad cam V6 engine achieves a balance between performance and economy.
Key features include dual variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and an intelligent electronic throttle.
In addition, the Toyota 2GR-FE engine has roller rockers, an electronic acoustic control induction system (ACIS), direct ignition system (DIS) and a lightweight cast-aluminium cylinder block.
Toyota designed the 60-degree V6 for a combination of high performance, fuel efficiency, package efficiency and reliability coupled with minimal weight, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and low emissions.
The engine has an oversquare bore-and-stroke relationship of 94 by 83mm for a swept capacity of 3,456 cubic centimetres.
Compression ratio is 10.8:1 for optimum power and economy across the engine revolution range.
It has siamese inlet ports to reduce the overall surface area of the port walls - reducing wall wetting and hydrocarbon emissions.
Toyota engineers have adopted roller rockers (with maintenance-free valve clearance adjusters) to reduce friction and hence optimise fuel economy.
The engine has cam profiles with a rounded concave portion on the ramp to increase valve lift as it begins to open and finishes closing, thereby increasing engine output.
The Toyota 2GR-FE engine has electronic control for the ACIS - based on information on engine revolutions and throttle position.
The ACIS varies the effective length of the inlet runners to make maximum use of the inlet pulsation effect for increased breathing efficiency.
The stainless-steel exhaust manifold has a built-in three-way catalyst to boost catalyst temperature and reduce hydrocarbon emissions from cold start.
This design accelerates the warm-up of the catalyst immediately after start-up, thus reducing exhaust emissions.
The 2GR-FE design maximises reliability and serviceability, with chain camshaft drive, maintenance-free valve clearance adjusters, a replaceable element oil filter, direct ignition, electronic engine control and an air/fuel ratio sensor.
Toyota Aurion's 2GR-FE engine has a service weight of 166kg.
