The 2015 model year of the Toyota best-selling mid-size sedan was first unveiled to the public back in April during the New York Auto Show. Featuring a “re-imagined” design, the model has been through an extensive mid-life refresh process.
The Camry is Toyota’s dynastic model – no less than 16 of the past 17 years, with 12 consecutive, the car has been crown as America’s best-selling passenger car. So, without resting on its laurels, the Japanese automaker has facelifted the model – with the 2015 Camry soon available at dealerships.
The entry level Camry LE has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $22,970, while the hybrid variant starts at $26,790. The top of the range Camry XLE/XSE trim is priced at $31,370.
The model will begin sales later this month, and with the new 2015 Camry, customers will get an Avalon inspired styling with a new front bumper and a larger grille boasting a massive lower air intake. There are also other headlights, restyled mirrors and updated taillights. The SE and XSE variants are even more dynamic, adding an even sportier front fascia and the latter featuring a sport-tuned suspension, a refreshed power steering system and new 18-inch alloy wheels. Interior modifications are subtle, but the Camry boasts refreshed instrument gauges complete with a 4.2-inch TFT display.
The engine choices remain the same: the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that has an output of 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of peak torque. The largest engine is a 3.5-liter V6 mated to a six-speed automatic that delivers 268 horsepower. There’s also the Camry hybrid, which has a combined power of 200 bhp (149 kW) relies on a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor.
