Toyota, over the years, has built an enviable reputation for producing vehicles that are reliable, durable, and economical. 

Their cars, consistently ranked among the best for longevity, have become a go-to choice for those seeking hassle-free ownership. 

The 2023 Camry seamlessly fits into this legacy. By offering advanced safety features, impressive fuel efficiency, and a comfortable ride, it epitomizes Toyota's commitment to quality and value.

Whether for city commutes or highway journeys, the Camry stands as a testament to Toyota's enduring promise of dependability.

Let’s dive deep into what the 2023 model brings to the table.

Performance & Handling

The 2023 Camry doesn't deviate from Toyota's well-established formula of providing smooth and reliable power. 

It's available with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, generating around 203 horsepower. For those seeking more oomph, the 3.5-liter V6 is on offer, delivering a robust 301 horsepower. Both engines are paired with a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The handling, while not sporty, offers a composed and confident drive, making both city commutes and highway cruises a pleasure.

Fuel Economy
