Conforming to what makes the new four-door a lot more emotional and also gives it a sporty and also high end image, Toyota used its Lexus brand as motivation for the Camry.

At the same time, the guest obtains a different atmosphere, highlighted by a feeling of openness and the soft-touch surface areas and also the veneer in the dashboard.
Although it was originally thought that Toyota will certainly terminate the venerable 3.5-liter V-6 as well as select a turbocharged four-cylinder instead, the midsize sedan continuouslies utilize a normally aspirated six-cylinder. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder was also kept, as was the hybrid drivetrain based upon the same four-pot unit.
