2023 Toyota Camry XLE V6 Changes Exterior, Redesign

2023 Toyota Camry XLE V6 Changes Exterior, Redesign – Oh, how the powerful have slipped away. Technically, yes. As of 2020, America’s best-selling automobile, the 2023 Toyota Camry, had fallen to third place (not counting pickup trucks). It’s still the best-selling sedan, but two crossovers, the Honda CR-V and Toyota’s own RAV4, have overtaken it in the market. You may imagine that Toyota would give less attention to its previous sales star if sedan sales were declining and crossover sales were on the rise. However, in its eighth generation, the Camry has never been better. How do you erase the memory of crossovers from the minds of those who have experienced them? Try to make a better Camry. Over 300 horsepower is now available in the V6 engine of the Camry. Then, let that sink in. There were V8 American muscle cars making this much power not too long ago. All-wheel drive for cold-weather driving and a sporty TRD variant have been added to the vehicle’s attractiveness.

Interior and Exterior

In order to attract people’s attention, the 2023 Toyota Camry has a lot of sharp edges and standout features. Modern Camrys are everything but the brown and beige cars of yesteryear. The athletic TRD has a lower stance and an aerodynamic body kit, including a gloss black rear spoiler, front splitter, and rear diffuser, as well as cat-back dual exhausts with chrome tips. The exterior accents of the SE Nightshade Edition are likewise blackened out. All Camry models come standard with LED headlights and taillights, with the former also featuring daytime running lights. The 17-inch wheels on the LE model are standard, while the 18-inch wheels on the SE and XLE models are optional. The XSE and TRD are equipped with 19-inch wheels, respectively.

On the Camry’s inside, which is modern and quirky, there is a noticeable difference in materials between the cheaper and higher versions. There are a lot of harsh plastics used in the lower trim levels, but the technology components are well put together. The XSE’s leather seats and soft-touch parts make it a more opulent option. Our favorite cabins are found in premium versions, although there’s potential for improvement in the lower ones. Compared to its competitors, the base model’s features are adequate, but the higher trims are loaded with the most advanced technology and convenience features.

Engine

When you buy a 2023 Toyota Camry, you can choose between two different powertrains. Engine power and torque ratings are slightly different across the LE, SE, and XLE versions because of the different powertrain options. AWD-equipped LE and SE variants are capable of producing up to 203 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. The XSE has a similar premise, although the figures are slightly different. The XSE has 206 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque in FWD mode. It has 205 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque in AWD form. The Accord’s base engine makes 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque, while the Mazda 6’s least potent engine makes 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet. The Camry’s 3.5-liter V6 produces 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, which is a major improvement over the Camry’s previous 2.5-liter V4.
