2015 Toyota Camry

2015 Toyota Camry

By Chris Paukert
Posted April 16th 2014 10:27AM

With a dozen years atop the nation's best-selling car charts, you might think that there wouldn't be a lot of incentive for Toyota to rework its Camry, particularly so early in the life of the current model. But despite its unassailable sales totals, the midsize sedan has come in for substantial criticism for its milquetoast dynamics, piecemeal interiors and bland design.

As part of CEO Akio Toyoda's mantra to build more exciting cars, the 2015 Camry has arrived with a fresh new look and content that goes far beyond the Japanese automaker's typically slight mid-cycle redesigns. Featuring some 2,000 new parts, the 2015 Camry casts a 1.8-inch longer shadow and stretches across a widened track (0.4 inches). And it won't be just the widened track that should help deliver a more dynamic performance – Toyota is citing a stiffer chassis thanks to additional spot welds along with a rejiggered suspension, retuned electric power steering and a new two-stage brake booster for improved braking feel.

A new XSE trim promises the sportiest performance yet, including model-specific shock absorbers and springs, stiffer bushings, unique stability control programming and 18-inch wheels to go along with a unique front end treatment featuring mesh grille inserts and a revised fascia.

2015 Toyota CamryBut Camry sales have rarely been driven by performance – millions of the things have been purchased due to the family sedan's ironclad reputation for attributes like reliability, strong resale value, comfort and ease of use. The latter two aspects often help secure the former, and to that end, Toyota has made a lot of changes to the Camry's interior, both seen and unseen. Visible changes include a redesigned gauge cluster with a new 4.2-inch TFT display, richer materials, a redesigned center stack and a console tray with available wireless charging. Hidden alterations include 30-percent more sound insulation to help deliver a serene ride.

Despite all these changes, the Camry's powertrains appear to be largely carryover, with an available 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engine, both yoked to conventional six-speed automatic transmissions. The Camry Hybrid will continue to be offered with a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder paired with an electric motor and electronic continuously variable transmission. As previously reported, the Camry Hybrid is joined by a new SE trim with a firmer suspension and retuned steering. So far, Toyota is keeping performance metrics close to the vest – there's no word yet on power, acceleration or fuel economy figures.

Most of the discussion coming out of today's New York Auto Show is likely to be centered on the Camry's very different looks – particularly in sportier XSE trim. With scowling headlamps, gaping new lower fascia and a sharply creased hood, this new model as far more attitude than its predecessor.

Liking the front Lexus esque marquee...actually the rear end looks a bit Lexus as well..im thinking they should make the rear a little more edgy or else it looks a lot like the sonata rear end

Edit: found a pic...I can't be the only one

Front end gapes out a little too much but the rest of the car looks amazing... along with the new Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Ford Taurus/Fusion, Chevy Malibu, I need to ask: where was this awesome mid-size sedan market when my dad was looking for a decent car 10 years ago? It's good to see more exciting cars even in the "lower" makes.

I always thought that the aggressive-looking rear of the last generation looked better than this, but the front does look better by comparison.

Having worked at a Toyota dealership in the past I've driven enough Camrys to hate them all. I never had anything against their appearance, but they were really lifeless cars to drive.

Let's see how this one drives, going to save judgement until then.

^ looking at the door lines its pretty similar, they added that black part on the trailing edge of the door to extend the rear glass it's not fooling anyone.

The interior is a small refresh, looking at the cut lines it's pretty similar, slighty bigger radio control knobs and gauges
