The current generation of one of the most popular sedans in North America came completely new a year and a half ago. Therefore, we usually wouldn’t expect to see bigger changes for the third production year. However, it looks like something is cooking in Toyota’s kitchen. It looks like we are about to see a new performance version, under a TRD badge. This model would come with lots of upgrades, though we are still waiting for the official confirmation. Rest of the lineup will definitely carry one without more important changes.
- Comfortable ride
- Lots of standard equipment
- Great fuel economy
- Cabin can be noisy sometimes
- Most rivals have a bigger trunk
The current generation of the legendary mid-size sedan is very fresh. It came last year with significant improvements in all aspects. Therefore, base models will definitely continue in the same way, with the same styling and mechanics. On the other side, many reports suggest the arrival of the 2022 Toyota Camry TRD. This would be a performance version, with both mechanical and visual upgrades. Some of the expected upgrades in terms of mechanics are new suspension and brakes. On the other side, a visual upgrade would involve lots of elements that can accentuate the car’s sporty character. This refers to new, bigger wheels, new bumpers and rest of the body kit, new grille etc. Moreover, we could easily see some exclusive exterior color in the offer as well.
For a mid-size sedan, one of the most important things is a quality cabin. The 2022 Toyota Camry will definitely meet these criteria. The next year probably won’t bring bigger changes. We could see a few more standard feature in the offer, but the cabin design will definitely remain the same. The means the same, refined interior with lots of quality materials and attractive dashboard, which is also full of tech features. Seats are very comfortable and supportive, while legroom on rear seats is among bests in the class. A new TRD version would probably come with lots of sporty upgrades, such as new seats, steering wheels, pedals and much more.
Engines of 2022 Toyota Camry
There are three engines in the offer for the current model and the 2022 Toyota Camry should continue in the same way. Base models will feature a familiar 2.5-liter engine that features 203 horsepower and also features pretty amazing fuel economy. You can count on 29 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway. Things are much better with an optional 3.5-liter V6, which is good for about 300 hp. Finally, there is a super-efficient hybrid version, which has 208 horsepower and features spectacular 50 miles per gallon in a combined ride. These are slightly better results compared to the hybrid version of the biggest rival, Honda Accord. When it comes to the potential TRD version, it would probably keep the same V6 engine, though with a slight power boost.
2020 Toyota Camry Release Date and Price
A new performance version might come or not, but the 2022 Toyota Camry definitely won’t arrive before the last quarter of the next year. Base models will go around $24,000.
