Hello, everybody, and welcome to the Toyota Camry 2015 review.
Toyota Camry, the Japanese giant’s pride and joy, and a true object lesson for everybody, who wants to score big in the United States (along with the rest of the world), is having a great 2015. The brand went through a pretty significant overhaul, and got a shiny new exterior styling, a better handling, and a more appealing interior, with new materials and cool features. And all that after a complete redesign in 2012.
A New Approach to Camry
The so-called lifecycle of Toyota’s brands is very gradual and straightforward. Every 5-6 years, the automobile mogul launches a new version of the existing brands, and, if I’m being honest, not much really changes, except for maybe some new colors, a few techy things, and such. And the mildly disappointed fans have to wait for a new redesign all over again.
At the same time, the 2015 Camry is a serious departure from that fine tradition, because, as I said, the Camry had a complete redesign in 2012, and the new overhaul wasn’t in the books for at least a couple of years. Nobody can really tell you the real reason for Toyota’s somewhat aggressive move with the best-selling sedan this year, but, my best guess would be they want to give the Camry an edge, and a new, fresh look, as some serious rivalry is on the rise. Now, for us, simple citizens, this is good news – it means we get more exciting and amazing stuff happening in the industry.
Everything With The Prefix “RE”
Also, you can see here my big Toyota Camry 2015 review. The exterior has some obvious changes; the “grill” got bigger and meaner, giving the harmless and oldschool Camry a cool edge, and making it look a lot like the luxurious Lexus brothers. The front is now significantly better in every aspect, and the rear got a smoothed out feel to it. Overall, the new design of the Camry looks a lot fresher and catchier, with a premium touch.
The interior also looks a lot better. You got new fancy buttons and knobs, which are really intuitive and easy to understand, and, at the same time, look sharp. Plus, a 6.1 inch touchscreen display, which controls the navigational system, the audio system, and the phone apps. Furthermore, you got the usual keyless entry, air-conditioning, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, USB and Bluetooth ports, and an audio system, that consist of six speakers.
Camry 2015: The Public’s Favorite
Now, that’s what you get with the standard, LE trim level. Toyota offers three more – SE, XSE, and XLE. Without getting into excruciating details, I can tell you, that nothing REALLY special is waiting for you in each and every one of them. I mean, you can add satellite radio, leather upholstery, keyless ignition, and so on. Again, nothing revolutionary – just some nice techy features.
Ok, what else do I want to tell you guys in my Toyota Camry 2015 review? Ah, the engine! Well, it’s pretty standard: if you buy the LE and SE versions, then you’re stuck with the usual 2.5-lit four-cyl engine, that gives a maximum of 178 HP, and a 6-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel drive. The XSE and XLE, on the other hand, can take in a 3.5-lit V6, that’s capable of 268 Horsepower. The XLE can give you 60 mph from zero in 6.2 seconds, which makes it a sedan with one of the quickest accelerations in the class.
