More Interesting Facts About,
the 2025 toyota camry is a hybrid only redesign of america s favorite sedan...
I thought I'd pop the hood and show you guys what powers this now. In the past, Toyota offered a choice of three different powertrains in the Camry, starting with the base four-cylinder, through a mid-level
hybrid, and a V6 engine, sadly, however, the gasoline engines have been discontinued. The Camry is now just a
hybrid, that's why the Camry is now specifically just a hybrid and has basically the latest version of Toyota's hybrid system. It is its fifth generation of hybrid technology. It combines a 2.5 L red naturally asp 4.-cylinder uh engine with, of course, two electric motors or I think three electric motors, depending on whether you want front-wheel drive, which is this model here, or all-wheel drive, which is the model xse there now.
Toyota says you can have front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive on any trim level of the Camry, which there are four for
2025and power output is 225 horsepower for this model here with front-wheel drive or 232 horsepower with all-wheel drive if Keeps score, it's actually 30 more horsepower compared to the previous generation Camry, which offered all-wheel drive, but
onlyfour cylinders, so those of you who wanted a V6 should unfortunately have gone with the previous generation Camry because we all knew the Toyota would eventually go away. To phase out that engine now, the company wasn't ready to talk about fuel economy numbers yet, but remember that the old Camry Hybrid got between 52 and 46 MPG combined.
I expect these new models to be the same, if not better, and again, Toyota was not ready to talk about braking speed or performance figures yet. It uses a continuously variable transmission, of course this is a hybrid system and this car is not a plug-in hybrid, it's just a full hybrid system, so it can work. Electric Only Power at very, very low speeds with light throttle applications, but let's go ahead and close the hood which as you can see is supported by a prop rod and first of all let's take a look at the exterior styling of this Camry brand new.
If you like the look of the new Prius, you'll find the styling of the new Camry to be quite similar. Technically, it's still based on a version of Toyota's TNG AK architecture. It's just been updated, but the car definitely looks lower. It looks wider, it looks a little bit sleeker, the headlights are the same style as the new Prius, where it has that C-shaped LED daytime running light. You can see that the daytime running light is now amber, which looks okay and then they have standard LED headlights where you have LED low and high beams down here on the lower front, you can't see fog lights, but there are some functional and non-functional grille openings.
This front end here again reminds me a lot of the Prius. with this little type of male slot here for a grill, this other grill over here that reminds me a little bit of the Toyota Crown, the xse that I'm showing you, as you can see, has a more aggressive design with this type of ogal hexagonal pattern on the real girl, unlike the below if you prefer the front fascia of the XLE or the xse. I personally have always liked a sportier looking sedan because this vehicle has the same architecture and has been basically updated. Toyota kept the dimensions mostly the same, so it still has a long 111-inch wheelbase.
Toyota said the new version here is about 1.4 inches longer overall, so you're looking at about 193.5 inches in length. It's still the right size vehicle for a midsize car. A crown is about 2 to 3 inches longer depending on Of course, what trim level you get, the car itself is also the same width and the same height, so from the side profile here it almost looks like the old one Camry with the same doors, but when looking at the wheels you can see the The wheels have been completely redone. These are the 9 inch black finished wheels that you get on the xse version.
It is mounted on a 235x 40 r19 tire. The X Le here has an 18-inch wheel with a kind of two-color machine and painted black. interior pocket, so I personally have always liked the look of the xse wheels, but I understand how Toyota wanted to give this model a more luxurious look. You can see that the xse also offers you the two tone roof where we have b or black. colored mirror caps and then you have a panoramic glass roof which is also on the XS or XLE. This also gives you that black roof which gives the Camry a much sportier vibe obviously and then looking back the rear design is definitely interesting, reminds me a bit of the previous generation ACC cable and has the same type shape with the C shape of the LED taillights.
You can see it looks like a full LED taillight, there is a big black light. crossbar that explains Camry on the xsc and then you have a black painted rear spoiler uh which is not the case on the XLE there and then you can see down here, here the Camry used to have a quad exhaust system . but now you can see this hybrid What do you have? I got the all-wheel drive version of the Camry now in terms of trunk capacity. There's still a release here that lets me see if I can actually open it. I'm surprised it hasn't actually opened, but I checked.
To determine trunk capacity, I don't have final figures yet. The old Camry had about 15 cubic feet of space. It still has hinges that crush the load. Look here and you can see that the seats fold in a 60/40 ratio. In some ways, it seems to be the same size as a really good Siiz trunk, especially for those of you who are used to a conventional sedan trunk, so the exterior of the new Camry is definitely more evolutionary than revolutionary, but let's move on. and let's take a Look inside. In fact, I'm going to focus more on this XLE version because it has a lighter colored interior.
We'll also look at the xse a little later, but when you get in and close the door, the door has a nice solid color. sounds dull, uh, which adds to the impression of quality if you've spent any time in the latest Toyota products, more specifically the new Toyota Crown, this interior will look quite familiar. This XLE that I'm showing you is the most luxury-oriented trim. It comes equipped with this type of softex leather interior with Alcantara suede details. It has some contrast stitching. These seats are also heated and ventilated, which is also the same in the uh xse there and you also have a 10-.
Power driver's seat with two-way lumbar support and Toyota also finally added two-person memory seats on the driver's side, something the Camry never had and it's good to see this model here has memory seats jumping over the XSC. and see if it works as well, the passenger side here has a power passenger seat, it's also an 8 way power passenger seat, although it doesn't have lumbar, it feels like that, it's definitely good that Toyota has been listening to the feedback and I previously thought the Camry's passenger seat only had four power positions, so it's nice to see that update, of course.
Now, looking at the rest of this interior, you can see that the dashboard reminds me a lot of the Toyota Crown, until, of course. The way the design is with the 12.3 screen. This is again a very early pre-production model, but it has the latest version of Toyota's connected services system. Where you can see here. It has wireless Apple Carplan Android Auto. It has air. Updates, this is something the Camry didn't have for the previous generation, the largest screen was a 9 inch screen. The little lower trim Camry will have the smaller 8 inch screen and as you can see when you go for an S xse. and see.
The steering wheel is essentially the same steering wheel that we have in the new Toyota Crown. It has a version of Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, so it has a camera here that watches your face to make sure you're paying attention. from manual to telescoping there are a lot of easy adjustments so you can get comfortable and then the materials you can see the door panel has a soft touch injection molded plastic it has this really cool kind of diamond pattern on the uh with Alcantara suede on The real door panels here, there's some padded faux aluminum trim here, then the window controls are one-touch for all four up and down, which is nice and then looking here on the dash, you can see that Really interesting diamond quilted texture running up here. on this top it's actually very nice and smooth, padded with a piano black plastic trim with this interesting ripple wave effect on the dash flowing from the vents, it all looks very well integrated and definitely gives the Camry It's got a little more modern and premium looking down here, on the center console you can see the gear shift lever is pretty much the same as other Camas, this controls the ecvt, you've got a wireless phone charging pad here, the buttons on your heated and ventilated seats are Over here I love the fact that Toyota has kept the physical button controls instead of moving everything to the screen and then down here you can see that the center console has two ports USBC charging and a USB along with a little more storage. here the cupholders and then the drive mode selector is here, there's the normal Eco Sport and then there's also an EV mode where you can drive this in electric mode only for very short distances.
The center console lid here is nice and padded if you open it. You can see there's a 12vt in there, there's a bit of ST storage which is nice and overall I find the seats to be quite comfortable and supportive, compared to the previous generation. I complained that the xse had very hard seats, this definitely feels like a little more cushioning, but I'll have to wait a bit until I drive one to test if the seats are a little better on top of me. Here you can see a large panoramic glass roof that reaches all the way to the back seat.
Which is nice, there's also a premium JBL sound system in this car for your audio files and then here in the glove box you can see it looks a little smaller than the previous generation, it's not a bin style, it goes into the dash . but you can see the lid itself is cushioned but not felt lined, but overall it definitely feels good, but let me go ahead and jump into the back seat of this vehicle and show you the space now. I don't have final legroom figures. Still, the old Camry had about 37 1 12 inches of legroom, but going back here you can see that this is not whereI would have the seat to drive, but for someone my height, 5'7, it is perfectly comfortable for average sized adults.
I will say headroom, however when I lean back the roof definitely gets cut off because of that panoramic roof, so take note for those of you who have taller friends, if you want this option, dashboard materials the door, this is very early preparation. production car but this is hard touch plastic here it's nice and padded here there's some leather or soft Tex here on this part of the door panel you can see the seats themselves they seem to have ventilation or they have perforations like they're heated and ventilated but it looks like they're not, you have air vents in the rear seats, you have two USB charging ports here, but I don't see heated rear seats or ventilated seats and then if you fold this down here, you can see there's an armrest with two cup holders along with these adjustable headrests so overall if you are planning on using this as a family car you can clearly see that the back seat of the Camry is quite comparable to the previous generation and now jump into the interior of the xse that I just wanted .
To show you some of the differences between the more luxury-oriented XLE, you can see that the seats are the most noticeable difference. These seats are obviously bright. red circuit I think it's called red circuit, that's what the old one was called and they're bolstered a little more aggressively these seats are also heated and ventilated, you get eight-way power on the passenger side and a power of 10 directions on the driver's side, however, the xse lacks a memory seat feature, so keep that in mind, if you must have that feature, it appears it is only on the XLE version.
Now, looking at the rest of the board, you can see that the red color extends all the way to the board. and on the door panels, let me start with the door panels first. Here you have a soft-touch material, unlike suede Alcantara. The xsc puts a soft Tex leather here where it is red and it is perforated on this part of the dash. It's nice and Here they are padded, the windows are still one touch for all four, like in the XLE, which is nice and then the steering wheel that you can see has some red contrast stitching, it still has the Sense toy security system 3.0 and it also has paddle shifters, that's something that the Not having paddle shifters on a CVT is strange, but of course we'll wait until we actually drive this model sometime next year.
Now you can see the rest of the dashboard, you still have the big 12.3 inch screen with wireless carplay. Android Auto still has the same basic dashboard layout with the physical buttons, wireless phone charging pad with dual zone climate control and then you can see here, instead of the diamond textured suede type, you get just a leather simpler red with black details. It's still a very pleasant place to spend time and I like the fact that Toyota essentially gives you two versions of the top trim. I also see features like the panoramic glass roof that lets in a lot of light but eats up headroom. and then this model also has a JBL premium sound system its drive mode selector is here the same transmission selector uh the same padded center console with the same amount of storage as well and then the key which I forgot to show you before this is actually the Toyota Smart Access Key says I think it's standard on all models you can see, it's got the usual buttons there for lock, unlock, pop up with trunk and panic, and you should be able to use a digital key, your phone too It's a key if I own this vehicle, so with over 300,000 units sold in the United States each year, this is without a doubt the best-selling family car here in the United States and it's really cool to see that people are still buying sedans because As you know, most manufacturers are gone. sedan segment, but it's really great to see Toyota sticking to its guns and electrifying the Camry because the Camry has always been great as a hybrid and now, again, if you want a Camry by 2025, it will only be available as a model. a hybrid now with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, obviously because this is only a very brief first look, we still do not have the final price of the new Camry, the previous model started at around 20 6,000 for the base version around 29 for the hybrid , so I suspect the new model, because it's just a hybrid, should be a little more expensive, so I'll go ahead and estimate less than $30,000 for a base price that the Camry used to go up to around 40,000 for a loaded version. which sounds good if you look at all the additional technology.
I expect this new model to be more expensive, has more power, has more efficiency, probably has better technology, has more features inside and also has a little bit better styling. I prefer the new look of the Camry but of course looks are always subjective so let me know in the comments section below what you think of the design if you're looking to get your hands on the new camera. We'll have to wait until spring 2024, that's when Toyota says it should arrive at the dealer, so we should drive this car early next year, but I certainly have no qualms that this will still be the best. selling sedans in the North American operating room because as you know people still love the Camry and it has always been priced right and now the fact that it is only presented as a hybrid should really continue to attract an even wider audience Well, all that said, hope.
