What’s New for the 2017 Toyota Camry?

For the 2017 model year, the Toyota Camry comes with new technology such as Qi wireless charging that has been added to the SXE (four-cylinder), XLE, and XLE hybrid trims. This wireless charging technology allows the driver to simply put their Qi-compatible device on a nonslip surface and then it will charge without being plugged into anything. Furthermore, the XSE and XLE models will receive Toyota’s Entune infotainment display that comes with both navigation and a JLB audio system. The last notable addition for the 2017 Camry is the STAR Safety System, which comes standard on all 2017 Toyota vehicles.

Gone are the days when the Toyota Camry used to be all about function and couldn’t care less about appearance. The 2017 model features a sleek exterior design.

2017 Toyota Camry Performance

The 2017 Toyota Camry comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission, which work together to produce 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. For those consumers who are more concerned about their carbon footprint, the Toyota Camry is also available with a hybrid powertrain that pairs a four-cylinder engine with a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor. This engine combination provides the Camry Hybrid with 200 net horsepower and allows the sedan to travel up to 40 miles in the city with just a single gallon of gas. Finally, the most powerful engine option for the ‘17 Camry is a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque.

2017 Toyota Camry Efficiency

Fuel efficiency for the 2017 Toyota Camry varies depending on which engine is equipped in the vehicle. When fitted with the standard 178-horsepower four-cylinder, the ‘17 Camry yields an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Efficiency improves to 40 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway with the Camry Hybrid. However, consumers who opt for the more powerful V6 will have to sacrifice on fuel economy, because the V6-powered Camry only yields 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
