The standard midsize sedan for a long time has been the Toyota Camry. Toyota challenges the persistent belief that the sedan is obsolete by selling over 300,000 Camry’s annually to families, Uber drivers, and practically anybody else in need of reasonably priced and dependable transportation. And there's one more now. In the US, Toyota has formally unveiled the much awaited 9th generation Camry sedan. The current 8th-generation XV70, which went into production in the middle of 2017, will be replaced by this model.
Electric motors are coupled with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine in its hybrid powertrain. With two electric motors, the front-drive version generates 225 horsepower overall. The AWD model increases overall output to 232 horsepower by adding a third motor generator to the back axle.
An electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) is used in both powertrains. Toyota is holding off on revealing the lithium-ion battery's capacity for the hybrid system until nearer the time of the new Camry's release.
It looks like the Camry's V6 engine is dead. A representative said, "This is just part of moving to all hybrids." "The new system will have ample power and is retuned for a performance-driven feel."
Continuing on from its predecessor, the all-new Toyota Camry is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-K version. New dampers provide better comfort and on-road behavior, which is one of the notable improvements.
The Camry has Toyota's most recent "hammerhead" front, a style that is also present on the Prius, Crown Sport, and C-HR. The redesigned lower intake has patterned trim surrounded by delicate air curtains, and the LED headlights, which are now smaller, incorporate C-shaped daytime running lights. At the back, C-shaped taillights are mirrored, and the boot lid features a redesigned "Camry script."
A massive 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system (8-inch for cheaper models), a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a new steering wheel, and a standard 10-inch head-up display for higher trims are all included on the revamped dashboard, which takes center stage inside the interior. The center stack's button-based climate and comfort controls are located above the central air vents.
There are four model levels for the Toyota Camry 2024: LE, SE, XLE, and XSE. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions are offered. In the US, Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 will be standard on all 9th generation Camry models. This suite of safety features includes automatic high beam, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane departure assist, road sign assistance, and rear cross-traffic alert. With the XLE and XSE trim levels, the Premium Plus Package includes technologies including lane change assist, panoramic view monitor, front and rear parking assist with automated braking, and traffic jam help. The Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 technology package is included on every 2025 Camry.
The fifth generation of the Toyota Hybrid System (THS 5) is added to the 2.5L naturally aspirated inline-4 cylinder petrol engine that powers the All-New Camry. With its two electric motors, this hybrid system can now produce 225 horsepower overall. With the addition of a third electric motor on the back axle, the AWD model's total system output—dubbed E-Four—is increased to 232 horsepower. Both powertrains make use of an electronic CVT (E CVT), whose energy capacity has not yet been made public, and a lithium-ion battery.
Pricing information has not yet been made public, although it is anticipated to be disclosed prior to the official debut. The planned launch is scheduled for the first part of 2024.
