2025 Toyota Camry First Look

Published on Mar 27, 2024 by Cassie Gould

What We Know About the 2025 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry has long been the definitive midsize sedan. While people continually say the sedan is dead, Toyota defies that by selling about 300,000 Camrys a year to families, Uber drivers, and really anyone who needs affordable and totally reliable transportation. And now there's a new one.

The 2025 Toyota Camry introduces the ninth generation of the popular sedan. It's available exclusively as a hybrid, and buyers can pick between front- or all-wheel drive configurations as well as LE, SE, XLE, and XSE trim levels.

What Powers the 2025 Toyota Camry?

Its hybrid powertrain pairs a 2.5-liter four-cylinder to electric motors. The front-drive variant gets two electric motors and makes a total of 225 horsepower. The AWD version adds a third motor-generator to the rear axle, boosting total output to 232 hp.

Both powertrains use an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT). The hybrid system uses a lithium-ion battery, but Toyota isn't disclosing its capacity until closer to the new Camry's launch.

However, this ninth-generation Camry is a heavy refresh, not an all-new car. The 2025 model rides on the same TNGA-K platform that was underneath the eighth-generation model. However, there is a reworked suspension with new shocks and revised tuning. The automaker touts the setup as offering "enhanced responsiveness and agile handling."

The 2025 Camry has a similar appearance to the eighth-gen model, with a large lower front grille and skinny headlights. The new model has standard LED headlamps, running lights, and taillights. Ocean Gem and Heavy Metal are newly available paint options, in addition to current Camry colors Ice Cap, Wind Chill Pearl, Celestial Silver Metallic, Underground, Midnight Black Metallic, Supersonic Red, and Reservoir Blue.

The XSE model has a body-color lower fascia, black trim on the trunk, and 19-inch wheels. It's available with a Midnight Black Metallic roof in combination with Ocean Gem, Wind Chill Pearl, Heavy Metal, and Supersonic Red.

What's new Inside the 2025 Toyota Camry?

The Camry comes with a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch infotainment screen. The XLE and XSE feature 12.3-inch displays for the gauges and multimedia duties. The tech includes support for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, in addition to having a wireless charging pad. The higher-level grades also offer a 10.0-inch heads up display. There's also an available nine-speaker JBL stereo.

The various trims offer different upholstery. The SE uses SofTex with white accents over Boulder or Black. The LE features fabric with an embossed ocean-wave pattern. The XSE has leather in black or bright red, and the XLE's leather also has Dinamica microfiber trim. The XLE and XSE have optional heated and ventilated seats. These trims also come with acoustic laminated glass for the front-side windows to reduce wind noise in the cabin.

What Safety Features Does the 2025 Toyota Camry Offer?

All 2025 Camrys come with the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite of tech. It includes a pre-collision system that detects vehicles and pedestrians, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure assist, road sign assist, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The XLE and XSE offer an optional Premium Plus Package that adds traffic-jam assist, front cross-traffic alert, lane-change assist, panoramic view monitor, and front and rear parking assist with automatic braking.

There is no info yet about a sporty TRD trim. When asked, Toyota said this announcement covered all trims and powertrains for 2025, which didn't shut the door on the model returning eventually.

The new Camry hits dealers in fall 2024. While pricing isn't available yet, we'd expect the new model to be broadly similar in price to the Camry it replaces.
