The 2025 Toyota Camry integrates the advanced hybrid system with a vigorous 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine, achieving a laudable 225 net-combined horsepower for front-wheel-drive models and even more for the electronic on-demand all-wheel-drive variants. It not only surpasses previous models in power but also sets a new standard in fuel efficiency with an estimated 51 MPG combined for the LE FWD model.

The upgraded hybrid system emphasizes a more natural driving experience, thanks to improved power delivery and a sophisticated electronically controlled continuous variable transmission (eCVT). Toyota claims that this change ensures both efficiency and a smooth ride.

All-Wheel Drive Available Everywhere

In a first for hybrid models, the 2025 Camry offers all-wheel drive across all its grades, enhancing its versatility and appeal. This modern system uses a dedicated rear electric motor to provide additional traction when necessary, adapting seamlessly to a variety of driving conditions to enhance start-off acceleration, handling, and stability.

The integration of this AWD system with the THS 5 offers a significant increase in net-combined horsepower and a confident, secure driving experience regardless of conditions.

An enhanced braking system and selectable driving modes further tailor the driving experience to individual preferences, combining performance with comfort.
