The latest 2013 Toyota Camry features an array of exciting features and powerful engine technology. To begin, the performance-tuned Camry SE is powered by a 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, while the Camry Hybrid’s 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine has a power output of 156 horsepower. However, when the Hybrid engine is combined to Toyota’s electric motor, the Hybrid Synergy Drive® system, the power output of the engine increases to 200 horsepower.
The Camry SE is outfitted with race-inspired paddle shifters, which operate with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission. Toyota’s website advises: in order too upshift, pull the right paddle, but in order to downshift, pull the left paddle.
The power system of the new Camry also includes recalibrated springs, shocks and sway bars, advanced and more sensitive Electric Power Steering (EPS), and a tight, firm suspension.
On top of the relatively powerful engines given the Camry’s compact size, every Camry is also designed to maximize fuel efficiency. The 4-cylinder engine boasts an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 35 miles per gallon on the highway. The V6 engine, on the other hand, boasts an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 31 miles per gallon on the highway. And, last but not least, the Camry Hybrid LE offers drivers an impeccable EPA-estimated MPG rating of 43 miles per gallon in the city.
Finally, the Camry offers drivers a luxurious and high-quality interior. Interior features include, but are not limited to: high-quality upholstery complete with sophisticated stitching patterns, available navigation system, multimedia systems, Bluetooth, 12 hands-free phone capability, advanced voice-recognition and Entune 10, dual zone climate control, available power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade, a spacious cabin, and wood-grain accents in some models.
