    For more than 20 years, the Toyota Camry has been the best-selling sedan in America nearly every single year, which speaks to its legacy of impressive performance, gorgeous design, and great features. While Ford and GM seem intent on leaving the sedan behind, Toyota continues to make amazing four-door cars to keep drivers happy. The 2022 Toyota Camry builds on this tradition with a wide range of amazing features and options, including two different conventional engines and even a hybrid engine if that is something you are interested in.

    For conventional engines, Toyota really comes out swinging with two fantastic options, so no matter which one you choose, you get excellent performance. The standard engine is a 2.5L beauty that offers up to 206 hp, while the available 3.5L V6 takes performance further with 301 hp. They both come paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission for a smooth driving experience and provide exceptional power and performance in this sporty sedan. There are four different trims with the standard engine and three with the more powerful option, so you have a lot of flexibility in what you get beyond your choice of engine.

    Inside the 2022 Toyota Camry, you will find fantastic features that really make it a joy to drive. Standard features include remote keyless entry, a 4-inch digital driver display, and a 7-inch infotainment screen with a six-speaker sound system. If you choose a higher trim, then you can get advanced features that include a 7-inch driver display, a 10-inch color head-up display, and a 9-inch infotainment screen with a 9-speaker JBL sound system. Combine these with the standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ package that includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and much more, and you have the best car on the road.

  • Performance

    When looking at a sedan like the 2022 Toyota Camry, it can be easy to overlook the engine in favor of other features. People always consider the engine and power when shopping for something like a sports car or truck, and yet they ignore the engine on a sedan. However, we feel this is a mistake since the engine is important in any kind of vehicle you buy. Every aspect of your driving experience really depends on the engine, which means you should always choose a car with some muscle in it.

    Two Traditional Engine Choices

    There are two conventional engines available for the Camry, which provide reliable Toyota performance. The standard pick is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that offers up to 206 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. That is an incredibly impressive standard engine that makes for a really fun driving experience even if you do not choose any other available options. You can choose from four different trims with this engine, so you do not have to feel limited on the other features you can get if you decide this is the right level of performance for you.

    There is also a 3.5L V6 engine available, which delivers 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, this is a significant boost to power compared to the standard engine, and it truly delivers a driving experience that makes you forget you are in a four-door sedan. Both of these engines come with front-wheel drive, and they come paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that provides a really smooth ride.

    An Efficient Hybrid Option

    If you are looking to save some money on gas, then the Camry's hybrid powertrain option is your best choice. This is also built around a 2.5L 4-cylinder gasoline engine, supplemented by electric motors for a total of 208 horsepower. Instead of the 8-speed automatic, a continuously variable transmission is used for greater efficiency. Overall, the Camry Hybrid gets 52 MPG combined against 32 MPG combined for the standard Camry.

  • Technology

    When you are looking at a great vehicle like the 2022 Toyota Camry, you always want to consider what it will be like to drive every day. The engine and other features will all affect that, of course, but the technology and options inside the vehicle are also very important. These are the things you are going to interact with, see, and use on a daily basis, so you want to make sure they are functional and fun. Although there are many trims available with different features and available options, we will look at the standard features and what you can get on the highest trim to get a good sense of what is offered.

    Standard Tech Features

    The standard model of the Toyota Camry is the LE trim, which comes with dual-zone automatic climate control and a 4.2-inch driver information display that includes data for fuel economy and trip information like your average speed, trip distance, and warning messages. You get fabric-trimmed seating in the Camry LE, which includes an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, along with a steering wheel that has controls for audio, Bluetooth, and cruise control. The Camry LE includes a multi-function key with remote keyless entry, a trunk release, and remote illuminated entry, all standard. You also get numerous USB ports, a 7-inch infotainment display with support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa, plus a 6-speaker sound system.

    Available Technology

    Looking at the highest trim for the Camry, the XSE V6, you get a number of impressive upgrades in terms of both technology and comfort – and many of these are available options for lower trims. For example, the XSE V6 features a Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging pad, as well as a 7-inch driver information display with increased functionality. The leather-trimmed seating in this Camry also includes an 8-way power driver's seat and front-passenger seat, both of which are heated with ventilated options available.

    You get a 10-inch color head-up display in the XSE V6 trim that projects information onto the windshield, including your speedometer, shift position, and available navigation. The Smart Key System includes remote keyless entry, as well as automatic locking and unlocking, and comes with push-button start functionality. You also get an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient interior lighting, and a 9-inch infotainment display with a 9-speaker JBL sound system that includes a subwoofer and amplifier.

  • Safety

    Even if you look at absolutely nothing else when shopping for a vehicle, the one thing you should always focus on is the safety features it has to offer. No amount of performance or impressive technology matters if a car cannot help keep you and your loved ones safe. Fortunately, Toyota is known for having some of the best safety features in the industry, and the 2022 Camry definitely lives up to that reputation.

    TSS 2.5+ Standard

    The safety features on the Camry are some of the best on the market, thanks to the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ package that comes standard on every model. This includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection that alerts you when you are at risk of colliding with something in front of your vehicle, as well as a lane departure alert with steering assist to help keep you from drifting out of your lane. You also get automatic high beams that can adjust to traffic and lighting conditions, as well as lane tracing assist and road sign assist that can recognize and help you spot signs along the road. Dynamic radar cruise control is also standard, which uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance controls to maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you by adjusting your speed automatically.

    As you can see, the standard features are already fantastic, though there is full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control available. This can operate at any speed, whereas the standard cruise control is designed for highway speeds. While all Camry models have an integrated backup camera, some trims feature dynamic gridlines to help you more accurately judge where objects are behind you. There is also an available Bird's Eye View Camera system that provides you with a 360-degree view around your vehicle at low speeds and in reverse to give you a better sense of your surroundings.
