The Toyota Camry has been a staple in the American auto market since the early 1980s. Toyota built its American reputation on this car and the Camry has long stood for quality, reliability, and value. Yet, the Camry has never been anything but a solid sedan. It's not a bold sports sedan and it doesn't attempt to be one. In 2012 the Camry was redesigned with several slight exterior modifications which were more transitional in nature than they were innovative and pushed the Camry towards a more boxy exterior. The 2013 model continues this trend and is more functional than stylish - but for many Toyota owners that's a larger part of the appeal.
The current Camry is powered by modest 2.5 liter inline four-cylinder engine which produces 178 horsepower and 170 foot-pounds of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission with manual shifter is standard. While this engine won't wow anyone, it's reliable to a fault and 25 MPG/city and 35 MPG/hwy is more than respectable. Despite the engine specifications, this engine is a significant upgrade from past years and proves far more responsive to Camry's of old. A V6 upgrade is still available for those desiring a bit more punch in the passing lane.Read more »

A secondary interior upgrade is available which bolsters the seats with backside pockets, and upgrades the driver's seat to an eight-way power seat.
the Camry SE is based on the LE design and comes standard with the 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine and all the base features of the LE.
