Toyota Camry outsells all the other midsize cars largely because of Toyota’s reputation for quality, durability and reliability. The Camry is the perfect transportation appliance, flawlessly performing its duties, never annoying its owner. Its soft suspension smoothes out beat-up city streets. The interior is ergonomically excellent, with big climate and audio knobs that are easy to adjust, and the seats are comfortable.
LE is available with a 190-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 it comes with the automatic transmission, included in the option price. XLE is available with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder or the 3.0-liter V6, both with automatic transmission only. SE is available with a bigger 3.3-liter V6 rated at 210 horsepower which comes with the five-speed automatic. Note that horsepower ratings for all three engines is lower than last year; this is due to a change in the Society of Automotive Engineers testing procedure used to rate horsepower. The engines themselves are unchanged and just as strong as last year’s models.
