Looks like toyota is putting more power in their cars to compete with acura and nissan.<p>The avalon looks like the first step, i've also heard about a larger suv/truck engine.<p>What's the next car to get the change in power?

Ask Naga. He seems to be quite knowledgable about toyota powertrains.

the camry/solara SE ( w/ the 3.3 now ) MIGHT get it, but who knows - someone already asked about an ES 350; and i cant figure out why the US wont get the GS 350<p>for 8 cyl engines<p>the last rumor was a 5.4L v8, but that was from motortrend to i wouldnt pay it any cred<p>a hybrid V8 would seem likely, probably on an updated version of the 4.7 or new one related to the 3uz-fe in the LS 430 ( current one is too)
