Toyota Camry Facelift

At the North American International Auto Show we have the opportunity to see the 2010 Toyota Camry for the first time. The model continues to redefine standards for comfort and performance as the best-selling passenger car in America for the past 12 years. The specialists will offer it for sale in March and it will be available with a series of enhancements inside and out, including exterior styling, performance, safety, audio and convenience features. The model now receives power from a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine equipped with variable valve timing with intelligence VVT-i. The total output will reach 169 horsepower for Camry, LE and XLE grades. The new engine can be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic one with sequential shift. There will also be available a 3.5-liter V6 capable of generating 268 horsepower. In terms of interior, the new model will receive newly designed grille and front bumper, an enlarged lower intake, larger projector headlamps and restyled tail lamps. The Camry Hybrid exterior enhancements will include a unique hybrid grille, a distinct front bumper, a wider lower intake, restyled fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. The Hybrid is also equipped with Hybrid Synergy Drive certified as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle producing over 70% less smog-forming emissions than the average new car. Inside, the Camry and LE grades are available with an optional audio system equipped with a new USB port for auxiliary music sources, Bluetooth, integrated satellite radio, single-CD, and MP3. Camry Hybrid adds a newly designed meter cluster and Fraichir, a combination of silk protein and synthetic fiber, cloth seating surfaces that are gentle to the skin. Unfortunately the price was not made public yet, but the Japanese specialists will announce it before it goes on sale in the spring.
