Have we been watchful for a all-new Toyota Camry? Well, we don’t have to wait many longer as Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has already announced that a next-generation Camry will be nearing soon.
While a Philippines will usually be removing a new Camry soon, many of of a universe has already had a next-generation Camry for utterly some time now. In fact, a US-spec Camry was initial introduced as early as Jan 2017. For those in Asia however, we had to wait awhile longer. Japan usually got a Camry progressing this year; while Thailand got it usually final month.
For a time being, it is still capricious that variants of a Camry will be done accessible locally. What is expected yet is that a Camry offering here will be formed on a ASEAN-spec indication that usually debuted in Thailand.
Visually, a US-spec, Japan-spec and a ASEAN-spec indication demeanour scarcely identical. The categorical disproportion between a US-spec indication and a ASEAN-spec would be a miss of a sport-oriented model. Much like in Thailand, we will expected be removing a customary indication usually but a some-more assertive looking bumpers and wheels.
As for powertrain, there are 3 engine options to select from in Thailand. It starts with a 2.0-liter engine that produces 167 PS and 199 Nm of torque. Moving adult is a 2.5-liter engine that outputs 209 PS and 250 Nm torque. The final choice is a hybrid engine that is a multiple of a 2.5-liter section and an electric motor. Combined, a hybrid powertrain generates 211 PS. As for delivery choices, a 2.0-liter section continues to use a 6-speed involuntary while a 2.5-liter engine now gets a new 8-speed unit. Hybrid models will use a invariably non-static delivery (CVT).
TMP has not mentioned that engine options and facilities will be done accessible to a Philippine-spec Camry. Given a auspicious taxation breaks in hybrid vehicles, it could be probable that a hybrid various might also join a internal line adult as a new tip spec model.
