2014 Toyota Camry OVERVIEW

For over a decade, the Toyota Camry has been—with only a few exceptions—the bestselling passenger car in the United States. What's not to like about impeccable reliability, plush comfort and high resale value? In fact, Americans have bought over 10 million Camrys since the vehicle was introduced in Toyota’s lineup 30 years ago.

The marketplace is getting more competitive though, and while the Camry faces more pressure than ever, it has managed to hang on to its bestseller crown. Plenty of repeat buyers wouldn't think of driving anything else.

Choosing Your Toyota Camry

Depending on the trim level and engine you choose, the Camry experience—and its price—can vary tremendously. A base LE model starts at $23,680, for instance, while an XLE with the V6 carries an MSRP of $31,515. Which you choose will depend largely on your taste, needs and budget.


Don't expect many frills on an LE, the de facto base model. (You can also have stripped-down L model, but you won't find many on dealer lots.) Standard creature comforts include a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, steering wheel controls for audio and Bluetooth, and automatic headlights. This will be more than enough for many Camry shoppers, though, as will a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 178 horsepower. Plan on fuel economy of 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.


SE is Toyota’s modest attempt at a more athletic driving experience. You'll find a sport suspension, paddle shifters for the automatic transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights and a rear spoiler. Seats are covered in SofTex fabric trim, and premium infotainment systems are optional.

SE Sport

The SE Sport gets more explicitly performance-oriented with 18-inch wheels. It also adds a moonroof.


This level adds a 268-horsepower V6 to the SE. The EPA rates this engine at 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.


Equipment levels get more luxurious at the XLE level. Standard features include a moonroof, power front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and integrated audio and Bluetooth controls.


With a V6 and leather, the range-topping Camry enters the near-luxury class. For buyers who want the luxury and refinement of a Lexus in a less conspicuous package, an XLE V6 is ideal.
