Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.
The 17 Camry comes with a 2.5 with 178 horsepower and 170 ftlb of torque
The 17 Avalon comes with a 3.5 with 268 horsepower and 248 ftlb of torque
Your 05 had 210 horsepower and 220 ftlb of torque.
If speed and power are the main focus then the new 4 cylinder will be weaker than what you had prior.
Your talking to a salesman, they rarely know actual engine performance numbers.

Thanks for using Just Answer, Chris
The 17 4 cylinder would do this scenario just fine, its not going to bog down and not accelerate. The V6 will just do it better. You will notice a difference but not alot.
