Consistently one of the most popular midsize sedans on the market for generations, the Toyota Camry has gone from an imported Japanese domestic to a staple in the American automotive community. For years the Camry has been one of the most well rounded vehicles available; roomy and well-equipped interior, efficient with both fuel and space, and never exactly an ugly duckling either. But now, with the 2015 Toyota Camry in the Bay Area, things are about to be shaken, and shaken hard.
The 2015 Toyota Camry has been remapped, reshaped, and redesigned to make a mockery of the competition. No matter where you park your new Camry, everything next to it is going to be looking pretty plain. The exterior has been turned to make the 2015 Camry an exciting piece of automotive eye-candy. Borrowing design cues from the sister company Lexus, the Camry sports a black mesh grille and HID headlamps with available vertically lanced LED running lights, creating an aggressive front fascia design. Inside, sport-inspired seats and quality upholstery welcome both driver and passengers alike. The available power moonroof keeps you close to the world around you.
Move passed the bold exterior, move passed the innovative interior and take a look at one of the most impressive new features of the 2015 Camry in the Bay Area; the performance. You see, that is one of the areas where the Camry has been, not lacking per say, but punching a little below its weight. But now, with the available 3.5-liter V6 engine, you have the option of putting your money where your mouth is on the streets with your 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet torque Camry. Yea, we’re excited too. Of course, if you’re looking for a little more efficiency than speed, you can opt for either the 2.5-liter four cylinder engine with 178 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque or the 2.5-liter four cylinder hybrid engine with a combined 200 horsepower.
When it comes to putting that power to the ground, the 2015 Camry is no slouch. The suspension has be recalibrated to handle the road beneath it no matter how fast you dare take it; and with a wider wheelbase on the Camry than ever before, you’ll feel more in control no matter how you drive. The aerodynamics are shaped to maximize airflow efficiency over the vehicle by reducing drag and turbulent air; to achieve this, Toyota have borrowed race-inspired vortex generators to channel the air through areas in which air is normally pocketed, creating a more seamless airflow over, under, and around the body. We think they’ve done a bang-up job considering the 2.5-liter engine gets 35 miles per gallon and the V6 gets 31 miles per gallon highway respectively. For a little more distance between fuel stops, they hybrid model gets upwards of 43 miles per gallon city.
The center console of the 2015 Camry provides revolutionary wireless charging capabilities. Any Qi-compatible device needs only placing on the non-slip charge area for fast and efficient charging. Upon the gauge cluster is the multi-information display, configurable to display pertinent information. The cabin is turned into a serious entertainment system via ten speakers, a subwoofer, and an amplifier. Toyota’s available Entune App Suite can be set into the center stack, and can be set to display valuable information about your new Camry; energy monitoring, trip information, and navigation are just a few of the applications available. Push-button start and steering wheel controls are also available.
All in all, this is hands down the best Camry to date. Never before has a Toyota been so cutting edge, so stylish, and so well equipped to handle anything life can throw at it. And now, with the 2015 Toyota Camry in the Bay Area, those everyday drives are getting a lot less routine and a lot more fun. Performance, style, efficiency, and technology are wrapped up with a bow; and considering the price tag is going to make the Camry fly off lots everywhere, now is the best time to get your ducks in a row.
