Toyota has announced that it will bring Apple CarPlay to select vehicles starting with the all-new 2019 Toyota Avalon.

CarPlay will arrive via the Entune 3.0 multimedia system and is standard on all grades of the Avalon. Toyota's CarPlay implementation is wired so you'll need to connect your device via USB.

Company spokesperson Brian Lyons tells MacRumors that CarPlay will be available in select Lexus vehicles (2019 model year and beyond) with its Enform 2.0 multimedia system in the United States.

Earlier this month, Toyota also announced that it will introduce Amazon Alexa this year in select Toyota and Lexus vehicles with Toyota Entune 3.0 App Suite and Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0. Additional models will be available in 2019.

“Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go,” said Zack Hicks, senior vice president and chief information officer of Toyota Motor North America and chief executive officer and president of Toyota Connected.

Long overdue. Honda has had AppleCar Play since 2016 or so. Others earlier than Honda... point being, Toyota should've released this "feature" a long ago.

Toyota's Entune is like going into a time machine. The software is circa 2003 and you realize how much things have changed in 15 years.
