2015 Toyota Camry: What Engines Are Available?

Looking at the 2015 Toyota Camry will simply show you the newest version of a classic Toyota vehicle that is perfect for families and individuals alike. This sedan has been popular for years and is constantly improving, even when drivers don’t think doing so is possible.

The first thing you notice about the 2015 Camry is that it has a completely new appearance. In fact, every body panel was replaced, with the exception of the roof. There are also now LED daytime running lamps, a new center stack and dashboard, refreshed materials, and even French stitching, depending on the trim level. The most important thing for many drivers, however, is the engine, and the Camry offers three different options, each of which is excellent.


2.5-Liter Engine

If you choose to get a base model of the 2015 Toyota Camry, you will find yourself enjoying the 2.5-liter inline-4 cylinder engine. This engine is identical to last year’s base model and gets you 178 horsepower, meaning that you will probably see the same fuel economy figures as you did in last year’s Camry with the base engine. This would put the figures at 25 miles per gallon city and 35 miles per gallon highway when combined with the 6-speed automatic transmission.

3.5-Liter Engine

For upgraded power, the choice for your 2015 Camry still remains the 3.5-liter V-6 engine, also paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine will give you 248 pound-feet of torque and 268 horsepower, making it much more powerful. Fuel economy will of course decrease slightly when you upgrade to this engine, but is still respectable at 21 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway.

Hybrid Engine

The final engine choice for the 2015 Toyota Camry is the hybrid engine, which is an Atkinson Cycle 2.5-liter I-4 engine combined with an electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT). It is still combined with a 105 kW battery pack, and the fuel efficiency for this engine remains the same as for previous years. That means that the LE Hybrid engine will get 43 miles per gallon city and 39 on the highway, while the Hybrid SE and XLE get 40 and 38 mpg, respectively.
