Toyota Camry Engine Options & Performance
The 2019 Camry offers an impressive array of engines to choose from. The base level includes a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that comes paired with a Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission and can deliver 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
The Camry also offers a powerful 3.5-liter V6, which can push the performance further to 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. However, drivers looking to take their vehicle into a greener direction can always opt for the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder hybrid engine, which produces 176 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque, all while achieving an EPA-estimated 51/53/52 MPG city/highway/combined*.
Entertainment Meets Convenience
The cabin of the Toyota Camry is equipped with plenty of features to make those commutes up the 5 or 15 fly by. This sedan includes the Entune™ 3.0 Audio with Entune® App Suite.
This system includes six speakers, and a voice-activated 7-inch touchscreen with plenty of entertainment options. The screen also includes Apple CarPlay®, which provides you easy access to your phone’s contacts, libraries, and apps right from the touchscreen display, with the Wi-Fi Connect® helping you access your media streams, which offers 2GB in a 6-month trial with Toyota Connected Services.
Every trim level of the Toyota Camry comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. This bundle includes a collection of driver-assistance features that utilize sensors to measure speed and distance to accurately warn drivers of possible collisions or incidents on the road ahead.
The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection factors in your speed and proximity to detect a possible collision. The Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist detects when the vehicle is straying from its path and uses selective braking to guide the vehicle back to its intended lane.
The Dynamic Radar Cruise Control makes highway driving convenient because you can set a cruising speed and preferred distance from the vehicle ahead, which will adapt to the flow of traffic while keeping a safe distance without you having to intervene. All these features aim to make safe driving easier and more secure.
Toyota Camry Trim Levels
While the Toyota Camry L includes all the features that you’ve read about, there’s a few other Camry trims you’ll want to consider for when it’s time to select your next vehicle.

The trim also includes the option of the Entune™ 3.0 Audio Plus with App Suite, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, HD Radio™, and Remote Connect®.
