There are several models out there, like the LE, SE, Special Editions, and then the V6 rocking XSE, XLE models too. It's a strong 4-door midsize sedan with a lot of character after its recent designs updates (more on that later) and comes in a variety of excellent colors. Certainly significant, and an important point to many is its exceptional fuel economy numbers, with the 4-cylinder version getting 35 mpg combined!

A used Toyota Camry has an option for a V6, how does it perform?

Throw what you think you know about underpowered econo-commuters aside for a moment because a used Toyota Camry can have a powerful 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine made of an aluminum alloy block with an aluminum alloy head. That means it's lightweight, rust-proof, and ready to rumble on the road! Further, it has a twin-cam, 24-valve with Dual VVT-i and gets 268 hp @ 6,200 rpm, with 248 lb-ft torque sent straight to the front wheels! All of this power is channels very well by a well-engineered 6-speed ECT-i automatic. This combination gets an astounding 21 city, 31, highway, and 25 combined in EPA estimates.

What are each model's exterior design elements to look for in a used Toyota Camry?

There are so many elements to discover, but here's a choice few from each model. The LE model starts things off with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) with on/off, color-keyed heated power outside mirrors that can fold manually, projector-beam halogen headlamps with auto on/off, High Solar Energy-Absorbing (HSEA) glass, & bright chrome upper grille/rear trunk elements. The SE model gets a striking Piano Black sport mesh lower front grille, 17" alloy wheels with a Graphite finish & P215/55R17 tires, a rear spoiler, a sport-tuned suspension, exhaust tips made of chrome, and a 'smoked' chrome upper grille/rear trunk add-ons. The XSE model includes all of that and/or replaces it with 18" alloy wheels with black painted pieces/machine-finish and 225/45R18 tires, driver/front passenger illuminated vanity mirrors, LED HI/LOW beam headlights with black sport trim bezels and auto on/off feature (V6 engine needed), and a popular 1-touch open/close tilt/slide moonroof. The XLE incorporates all of those items generally, then gains 17" super chrome alloy wheels.

How about design items on the inside?

Toyota goes even more in depth with these, and in a used Camry you may see many of the following items: a backup camera, multi-function in-key remote keyless entry system, a day/night rearview mirror, a leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic 3-spoke sport steering wheel (with audio, paddle shifters, & Bluetooth hands-free phone/audio voice command controls), Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, and 2-zone auto climate control with rear-seat vents. That list continues with Homelink universal transceiver (V6 model only), and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support coupled with a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. In terms of sound, there are 3 optional systems: from Entune Audio with the Entune Multimedia Bundle to the Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation & App Suite, with the Entune Audio Plus with Connected NavigationApp found in the middle of those on many used models.

Final Thoughts on the Used Toyota Camry

For safety, Toyota has it covered with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children), an energy-absorbing collapsible steering column, and 10 airbags including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, ABS brakes, plus a whole lot more! With a fuel conserving 4-cylinder or a quick-to-maneuver on the highway V6, a pre-owned Camry is a great choice with a lot of versatility. It rides smoothly, due in part to its MacPherson strut suspension with gas-filled shock absorbers and stabilizer bars as well as an Electric Power Steering (EPS) that makes turning intuitive and effortless. It seats five and gets great gas mileage, and has a long history of being a popular, reliable choice in the midsize sedan market. Come talk to us today about our used Toyota Camry selections!
