The Toyota Camry model was first released in 1983 in a quiet atmosphere and its rise was slow until the past 10-15 years, when Toyota begun to surpass its competitors in matter of sales and popularity due to its wide range of cars and the also well known Japanese reliability of the manufactured vehicles. Today, Toyota produces everything from the tiny models Aygo and Yaris to SUVs and trucks like Land Cruiser, Tacuma and Tundra and the Camry model is now a highly appreciated vehicle for its performance and reliability, after the various releasing in the past gained general positive recognition on the international market.
The 2012 Camry is expected to find stiff competition from Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Volkswagen Passat. The Accord has proven quality over the years and gets a great deal of respect from its users.
The new 2012 Toyota Camry, expected to be presented at Car Saloons all over the world in the first months of 2011 is built as a middle size four doors sedan, with front drive wheel drive system. It also keeps the usual trim choices options: bottom, LE, the sporty SE edition and the admiral ship-XLE luxurious model. The car generally keeps pretty much the same dimensions and its design is not so radical as expected, but it promises us a lot of new features available even on the bottom version, like adjustable steering wheel and suspension, satellite radio and Bluetooth, stability air control and full power accessories.
The base engine chosen for the 2012 Toyota Camry is a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that can produce up to 168 horsepower. The sporty version, SE comes with the same engine, but can produce 10 more horsepower, making it much more fun to drive. The gearbox comes in two versions, the six speed manual gearbox and the six speed automatic gearbox and the whole propulsion system is designed to offer performance for a very convenient fuel consumption, the announced average rate of the model being 34 mpg on highway.
Although the old series seemed to loose popularity for a while, the new 2012 Toyota Camry is purposed to overwhelm its owner by the multitude of optional features, a flawless impact tests behavior, the space of the cabin and the fuel efficiency. This is the reason why so many ask about when it will be released on the market and what will its price be.
The weak spots of this model are the cheap look given by too much plastic on the interior, the inconsistent finish and uninspired driver dynamics.
