2025 Toyota Camry To Be Exclusively Sold As A Hybrid

New Camry is expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships in late spring 2024 with a starting MSRP of $28,400.

Toyota said its new 2025 Toyota Camry is going to be exclusively hybrid. The 2025 Toyota Camry pairs the fifth-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS 5) with a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine and has a standard 225 net-combined horsepower on Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) and 232 HP on electronic on-demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) equipped models. The Camry also features a manufacturer-estimated combined 51 MPG rating on the LE FWD grade and offers available electronic on-demand AWD across all four grades: LE, SE, XLE and XSE.

The 2025 Camry is expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships in late spring 2024 with a starting MSRP of $28,400 – over $400 less than the outgoing Camry Hybrid base grade and includes more standard features, according to Toyota.

Toyota said its engineers tuned the new THS 5 system to provide a more natural acceleration feel that is synchronized with the increase in engine speed. According to the manufacturer, this was achieved by increasing the amount of power from the lithium-ion traction battery through the electric motor generator to suppress high increases in engine revolutions during acceleration.

Camry vehicles also have an electronically controlled Continuous Variable Transmission (eCVT) that intelligently finds the right gear ratio for the amount of throttle input for optimal fuel efficiency.

Electronic on-demand AWD has been adapted to work seamlessly with THS 5 and utilizes an electric motor generator on the rear axle resulting in 232 net-combined horsepower – 30 more horsepower than the outgoing model with a mechanical AWD, Toyota said. The system provides on-demand front-rear torque distribution in accordance with driving conditions to support start-off acceleration, handling and stability in everyday driving situations. Toyota said if the system deems the roads as slippery or senses a loss of tire grip, the distribution of torque to the rear wheels is then controlled to deliver traction.

According to the manufacturer, all models feature a MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. The SE and XSE grades have a specific sport-tuned suspension with new shock absorbers in the front and rear including a larger diameter front stabilizer bar. Toyota said further control is provided by an enhanced brake feel from the newly adopted braking system. The Electronically Controlled Braking system (ECB) features on-demand pressurization provided through a new pump motor in the brake actuator, which Toyota tells us enables greater controllability and brake feel.
