Toyota Camry, best sold mid-size sedan in the US market for 12 consecutive years aims to keep doing this for unconceivable amount of time since it received a facelift for 2015. With these changes reports that we could hear suggest that the 2015 Toyota Camry will be even more appealing to the buyers than before.
From this year on, there will be three hybrid trims and five petrol trim levels available with the addition of all-new XSE model. Besides as XSE, Camry will come as already known L, LE, SE and XLE trims. First two tiers have 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, while rest of the lineup comes with either that one or 3.5L V6 engine which is good enough for 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Both these engines are hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Exterior received a facelift which is mostly evident up front and Camry now comes with hourglass-like grille, vertically shaped fog lights and new sharper hood lines. At the rear, tail-lights have been trimmed a bit and are now smaller, while chrome garnish was thinned. On the images we are getting we can see significant differences to the front segment and we can agree with many that this is a significant improvement over the previous models.
Inside, 2015 Toyota Camry hasn’t changed as much and it kept most of the features, materials and shapes that its predecessor had. It still comes with fabric cloth seat upholstery and available leather upgrade on higher trims, while cabin has some chrome accents. Dashboard looks as good as ever and offers huge instrument panel which is filled with all kinds of controls and contains 6.1-inch touch screen display or optional 7-inch HD touch screen which can be used for infotainment purposes.
Optional package includes eight JBL speakers including subwoofer and amplifier, while USB port and Bluetooth technology are standard on all models. What comes as new are noise-insulated floor and improved window and door seals which efficiently decrease cabin noise, especially on higher speeds. The 2015 Toyota Camry is standard with 10 airbags, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision system and lane departure alert, while rearview camera and blind spot monitor are optional.

Fuel economy ratings have remained unchanged as 4-cylinder engines still have them at 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. V6, naturally uses more fuel and has lower numbers of 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Prices should see an increase, but it will be insignificant. Entry level 2015 Toyota Camry will now cost a little bit less than $23,500, while top XLE trim should go for some $31,000 and even more.
The 2015 Toyota Camry has been refreshed and got a new sharper look which was needed in order to keep competition at bay. How is this going to work for Toyota, remains to be seen, but for now it seems that 12 year run as best sold sedan is coming to an end as competition got much stronger in last couple of years.
