With a 25/35 estimated mpg* and a 22,970 starting MSRP, the 2015 Toyota Camry has a pretty good reason to demand respect at every single corner, as its manufacturer suggests it would. So what exactly should you expect from this brand-new model: a safe ride, technology that helps you stay connected, lots of power under the hood, or bold design features? Toyota indicates that you can have it all in the same package. The Camry has been known as the bestselling car in the U.S. for the last 12 years, mostly due to its reliability, unobtrusive motoring, and great value. What does the 2015 model have in store for its prospects?
A Stiffer Structure for a Sportier Car
According to Car and Driver, one of the most important changes worth mentioning is the chassis that has benefited from much-needed selective stiffening, leading towards a better all-around response. Revisions done to improve the steering system and the sporty suspension tuning also help Camry get additional bonus points for an improved feel. Alterations to the braking system have also upgrades the overall pedal feel.
“Toyota calls this the sportiest Camry yet, and to underscore the brand’s desire to attract more enthusiastic drivers, there will be two sporty trim levels: the established SE, which already accounts for 45 percent of Camry sales, and the new XSE,” reveals Car and Driver.
A Better Interior
Toyota has also succeeded in reducing interior noise levels by perfecting its door and window seals. Highlights related to the new interior revolve around the TFT display, its center stack, and premium materials incorporated to help passengers and drivers experience a higher level of comfort and a touch of luxury.
More Freedom of Choice
Camry also ensures plenty of freedom of choice in terms of powertrain , giving prospects three main options: the four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine (standard), V6 3.5-liter engine (optional), and the hybrid reflecting a combo between a four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. The hybrid is coupled with a CVT, while all engines are coupled with six-speed automatic.
According to Autoblog, after putting its new vehicle on the city streets, Toyota plans to promote it properly by also placing it into the spotlight as a race car on the NASCAR track. “Since it is based on the same control chassis as all the others, the Camry’s skin is applied over a steel tube frame and powered by an old-school 5.86-liter pushrod V8 mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.”
