The Camry is one of the best selling cars in the World with more than 400,000 units sold each year. In order to achieve that, Toyota kept it quite restrained, both in terms of looks and features. However, with the latest model, the 2019 Toyota Camry, this is no longer the case. They released the new car earlier this year and so far it managed to impress pretty much everyone. Not only did they change the design but the car is also faster, more efficient and better to drive. With this model, we can safely say that Toyota came on the market with a class winner. The car has been available since this summer and so far it managed to become the class leader which is already an impressive feat.
2019 Toyota Camry Review and Rumors
In order to give the new model better handling characteristics, Toyota based the car on their new TNGA architecture. This modular design allowed them to increase the wheelbase over its predecessor without actually increasing the size of the car much. The running gear also changed completely from what it was previously available.
The car now boasts a fully independent suspension system with a different layout in the front. The center of gravity is also quite a bit lower, so it is not just more comfortable but also quite a bit better to drive than ever before.
The big upgrade though has to be the car’s brakes. These are now more than capable of stopping a fully loaded Camry which wasn’t really the case with the older model.
2019 Toyota Camry Redesign
As we said, the previous model was a rather dull-looking car but that didn’t stop it sell well. The new Camry, on the other hand, is a far better-looking sedan with a bolder design which so far has been positively received. The front end received cues from the Prius but it isn’t identical to it.
The grille is larger and the headlights are now swept back. The end result is a car that looks aggressive without being ostentatious. There is also a new sporty version which boasts an even prettier design with all-black exterior inserts and a quad-exhaust system.
The window-line also changed for the better. The car now looks a lot more like a coupe than ever before. The wheels are bigger across the range while the range of available colors increased by a good amount too.
One of the best parts about the 2019 Toyota Camry has to be its cabin. Even though Toyota decided to keep a rather restrained look here, the first impression is much better than ever before. The dashboard is nicely laid out with most controls pointed at the driver.
The instrument cluster is clear while the three-spoke steering wheel is great to hold on. The driving position is now lower and there is more available space, both in the front and at the back. Toyota is also offering more features such as more active safety and a far better infotainment system than ever before.
Engine and Specs
The base model of the 2019 Toyota Camry will come with a 2.5 liter naturally aspirated inline-four. This is currently capable of 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque in the base configuration and up to 208 horsepower on the car’s sports version.

This has been achieved with the help of a variable cooling system, multi-hole fuel injectors as well as a fine-tuned exhaust. Further up the range, there is also a 2.5-liter hybrid which is known to provide up to 208 horsepower while delivering great fuel efficiency. Thankfully, the new Camry is also available with a V6 which is no longer the case with some of its rivals.
This 3.5-liter engine is currently capable of providing 301 horsepower. With the exception of the hybrid, the engines use an 8-speed automatic which drives the front wheels.
Release and Price
The new model is already available in most showrooms around the World. The upcoming 2019 Toyota Camry, the first small revision, should hit the market sometime in early 2018.
The car should boast roughly the same features as the current model. The only real difference should be a slightly different price and slightly different technology packages. We can expect it to start at around $24,500 with the range-topping versions going for not much more than $40,000.
