The 2016 Toyota Camry is a medium size family car and its current model is currently being sold on the US market as well as a few other areas around the World. The current model has been on the market since the late 2011 and it has been sold in the same form for more than three years. It just received an update last year but Toyota is already planning on replacing the model with an average lifespan of just 5 years. For the Toyota Camry 2016 we expect a new car all together which is going to be a step above the current generation in every possible way.
2016 Toyota Camry redesign
On the inside of the 2016 Toyota Camry there are also going to be quite a bit of changes. The old dull interior is going to be redesigned in something a lot livelier that is certainly going to impress its buyers. The base model will now feature a dual zone automatic climate control system which was previously an option as well as a new infotainment system which is going to have its own app ecosystem.
The exterior design of the Toyota Camry 2016 on the other hand will change but not as much as we would like. The dimensions of the car are going to be pretty close to those of the current model but the platform is going to be changed to a modular one which will allow Toyota to build it at a lesser cost. This new platform could also mean that in the future we might see a four wheel drive version.
Toyota Camry 2016 specs
Engine wise, we are going to see some big changes here. The new Toyota Camry 2016 is going to ditch all of its current engines in the favor of two more fuel efficient and also more powerful units designed in cooperation with BMW. The base car will now get a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline 3 offering 180 horsepower and more than 200 lb-ft of torque while the top of the range model is going to get the 2.0-liter version with around 270 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both of these are going to be mated to a new 8-speed automatic gearbox and a front-wheel-drive system. The expected fuel consumption for the small engine should be over 40 MPG while the 2.0-liter version will easily hit 30 MPG.
2016 Toyota Camry release date and price
From what it looks so far, the new Toyota Camry 2016 is going to be launched some time in 2016, most likely in August or June, just like before. The base price won’t change, so the car will only cost $23,000 US dollars for start which is amazing value for money. The higher end model and the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid though are going to cost more than $30,000 which is perfectly fine for most of us.
