Having received a dramatic styling and chassis platform designs just last year, the 2019 Toyota Camry continues to face an uncertain market demand due to the escalating crossover craze. For those who are willing to own a sedan, the Camry offers a wide range of trims to suit those expecting a comfortable ride and those who are looking for a more enthusiastic drive.
What's New for 2019
The 2019 Toyota Camry only sees minor feature changes between the trims as its major redesign debuted last year.
Choosing Your Toyota Camry
The 2019 Camry received an all-new platform last year and achieved a lower center of gravity and hunkered-down look. Front-wheel drive is standard and there are a couple of engines from which to choose. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine puts out 203 horsepower and 184 pound-foot of torque and comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain configuration earns an EPA-rated 28 miles per gallon city, 39 mpg highway, and 32 combined for the mainstream trims, while the base L trim achieves 29/41/34 mpg (city/highway/combined).
Buyers can choose a 3.5-liter V6 engine (also paired to the eight-speed automatic) that makes 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque on XLE and XSE models. This engine achieves 22/33/26 mpg, though the highway figure drops to 32 mpg on XSE trims.
Of the 2019 Toyota Camry lineup, the LE trim brings a healthy list of connected tech and the available option packages allow buyers to upgrade their sedan as they see fit.
