Toyota Camry Prices, Release Date, Specs, Color & Photos

As the globe increasingly favors SUVs over midsize sedans, the Camry has become somewhat of a stalwart in the latter category. Regardless of how the market has evolved over the past two decades, the Camry has remained the best-selling passenger car in America every year. It’s gained a solid reputation for dependability and provides an eco-friendly hybrid option.

With the Nightshade package (which adds bronze wheels for 2023) and the sporty TRD trim, the current generation of the Camry approaches the stylish. Toyota’s midsize car, the Camry, still offers an available 301-horsepower V-6, but competitors like the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata have switched to four-cylinder lineups. It’s not a particularly fun vehicle to drive, but the high-quality safety equipment, fuel efficiency, and roomy cabin make it a practical and pleasant option for everyday use.

What’s New for 2023?

To complement the black front grille, rear spoiler, mirror caps, and badges that come standard on the 2023 SE, the Nightshade package is available as an upgrade. There are new matte bronze 19-inch wheels on the Nightshade, and they really complement the car rather well. It comes in three different colors: Midnight Black, White, and a brand new shade called Reservoir Blue. Additional driver aid features, such as automatic high lights and a forward-facing camera that can read specific traffic signs, have been added to the remainder of the Camry series.

Pricing and Release Date

The 2022 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid are on sale now, and starting prices for all 2022 trim levels are below. All prices include a $1,025 destination charge, up from $995 in 2021 (the increase reflects the additional $20). For an extra $1,400, buyers can add AWD to gas-only four-cylinder Camrys, while the FWD-exclusive V-6 is available on the XLE and XSE for an extra $5,125.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The base four-cylinder engine is paired with a smooth eight-speed automatic, but its acceleration is underwhelming. In the Camry hybrid, a smaller version of the engine combines with a battery and two electric motors, making for a powertrain that is no more exhilarating to drive than the standard one.

The XLE, XSE, and TRD variants all feature a silky 301-hp V-6, but it is the TRD model that is the real diamond of this collection. Moreover, we’re relieved to report that we no longer despise the Camry’s reliability. It rides smoothly and handles with surprising dexterity.

The steering has a nice feel to it; it’s heavy while turning but easy to handle in tight spaces like parking garages. Even in the hybrid, where it must combine friction and regenerative braking (where the energy from braking is used to recharge the hybrid’s battery pack), we found the Camry’s brake pedal to be quick and not overly soft.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The whole Camry series aced the EPA’s tests, and our real-world highway testing revealed that a four-cylinder model performed very well. Both the LE and SE with the four-cylinder engine are the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid Camry models, with EPA estimations of 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.

The base LE hybrid, however, has ratings of 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway. However, the most luxurious versions of the hybrid get only 22 mpg in the city and up to 33 mpg on the highway thanks to their V-6 engines. On the interstate, the four-cylinder Camry SE earned 45 mpg, which is 6 mpg better than the EPA estimates and makes it the most fuel-efficient vehicle we’ve tested to date that isn’t a hybrid. We found that it achieved an MPG greater than the hybrid Camry XLE that we examined.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

We have experienced driving the Camry in both its luxurious XLE and more basic SE forms. Both have plenty of room for passengers, but the XLE takes luxury to a new level. The middle area of the dashboard was uninspiring to look at, and there was a noticeable quality disparity between the base model and the higher-end variants.

The Camry is a spacious sedan with plenty of room for passengers, luggage, and other items in the trunk or the cabin with the back seat folded down. It’s not the ideal option for all types of data storage, but it holds its own against the competition. So that Camry hybrid owners wouldn’t have to give up trunk space in exchange for better fuel economy, Toyota moved the battery from the trunk to the floor, behind the rear seats.
