2022 Toyota Camry Redesign
2022 Toyota Camry Redesign– The Toyota Camry has gone from a fantastic family sedan to a nameless four-door and is now returning to its former glory. Exactly. Toyota is once again a truly desirable choice in a segment that is slumping but still very competitive. If it weren’t for the 10Best dynasty, the Honda Accord, the Camry would have been even more desirable. However, credit its various powertrain plates for its mass appeal. There’s a budget four cylinder, a more economical hybrid option, and a powerful V-6. The best way to experience the latter is with a TRD model tuned for sports, which features the rediscovered Toyota fun factor.
There are very many camry enthusiasts who are looking to share information about the 2022 Camry, but until now, Toyota itself has not released information about the 2020 Toyota Camry, so to fulfill the reader’s curiosity, we will share information on the Toyota Camry 2021.
Those who prefer a stylish and comfortable family sedan, with driver assistance and popular features galore, will also love the Camry 2021.
Toyota made only minor changes to the Camry 2021 lineup. The base model L is now gone, making the LE Camry the cheapest. The front of the sedan has also received a stylistic revision and there are new paint colors and wheel designs. Inside, there is a touch screen like a new tablet that measures 7.0 or 9.0 inches. The sporty XSE model is now available with a hybrid powertrain, and the luxurious XLE gets new leather seats. Finally, each Camry receives enhanced driver assistance, including technology that better recognizes cyclists and pedestrians.
We’ll pick the spicy Camry from the bunch, which is a tuned TRD model. It’s only available with a 301-hp V-6 and an eight-speed automatic. In addition to a more racing body kit – complete with a separate rear spoiler and a pair of protruding exhaust tips – this sedan uses a retuned suspension that is 0.6 inches lower than the regular model. Other performance-enhancing features include larger front brake rotors and 18-inch black rims that can be had with tires all season or summer.
Those upgrades make the Camry TRD more attractive to drive than the rest of the lineup, even if the cat’s back exhaust system doesn’t sound as thrilling as its many aerodynamic additions suggest. While Supersonic Red and a black painted roof are the most flamboyant paint scheme among the four options, we’ll go for the White Chill Pearl paint scheme.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
The standard four-cylinder engine pairs with a smooth eight-speed automatic, but acceleration figures are disappointing. An underpowered version of the engine runs on a battery and two electric motors to power the Camry hybrid, which is no more interesting to drive than the basic powertrain. The real gem of the lineup is the 301-hp V-6 available on the XLE and XSE models as well as the TRD variant. We’re also happy to say that we no longer hate riding the Camry. It has a controllable ride and very responsive handling. The steering has a comfortable weight and feels solid when cornering and light when maneuvering in parking lots. We found the Camry brake pedal responsive and not overly soft, even on a hybrid, where friction has to be mixed with regenerative braking (where energy from braking is used to recharge the hybrid battery pack). At lower speeds, however, the hybrid brake pedal is extremely sensitive, making parking maneuvers a herky-jerky affair.
Real-World Fuel Economy and MPG
The entire Camry lineup performed exceptionally well in EPA testing, and the four-cylinder model did brilliantly in our real-world highway tests. The hybrid top trim sacrifices some efficiency on the altar of luxury. The four-cylinder Camry SE delivered 45 mpg in our road tests, beating its own EPA rating of 6 mpg – and making it the most economical non-hybrid car we’ve tested.
