We last saw the heavily revised 2015 Toyota Camry at the New York Auto Show earlier this year. Now, it's finally time for the best-selling car in the US to hit the roads in late September, and Toyota is announcing how much the updated model actually costs.

The basic Camry LE rings up for $22,970 (*not including a $825 delivery, processing and handling fee). That's up slightly from the base price of $22,425 for the 2014.5 LE, but the updated sedan has some 2,000 new parts, while also being 1.8 inches longer and boasting a 0.4-inch wider track. The rest of the trim levels include the SE for $23,840, sporty new XSE for $26,150 and XLE at $26,150. Opting for the V6 is the XSE and XLE bumps pricing to $31,370.

Separately, the Camry Hybrid gets its own LE, SE and XLE trims. The LE starts at $26,790 with a standard, power driver's seat and 4.2-inch information display. The SE for $27,995 gets an improved interior and the XLE at $29,980 has leather, heated front seats, LED running lights and more.

Powertrains carry over with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic available on all non-hybrid models and a 3.5-liter V6 with a six-speed auto optional for the XSE and XLE. The Camry Hybrid maintains its 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder and CVT.

Despite the slight price jump, even base LE models get features like an eight-way power driver's seat and heated outside mirrors. The SE also adds a 4.2-inch multi-information display and direct tire pressure monitor system.

Jumping up to the XSE adds leather, heated front seats and a power passenger seat, and the top XLE features Ultrasuede seat inserts. Both of these also get LED running lights and Toyota's Entune Audio Plus multimedia system. V6 models also have full LED headlights, Smart Key and navigation on a seven-inch infotainment system.

New 2015 Toyota Camry – The Best Just Got Better

Value-Driven Pricing for the 2015 Camry, the Best-Selling Car in America

September 02, 2014
TORRANCE, Calif., (Sept. 2, 2014) – The dynasty rolls on! For 12 consecutive years, and 16 of the past 17, the Toyota Camry mid-size sedan has worn the crown of "best-selling car in America." One creates such a juggernaut by never resting on its laurels and the new 2015 Camry is a prime example of this philosophy.

Going on sale in late September, the 2015 Camry and Camry Hybrid has been remade with a bold new exterior design, improved dynamic performance, a premium and upscale interior, and offering new and innovative safety technologies. All of this has been accomplished while retaining its excellent value through affordable pricing.

Making the Grades with Power and MPG
The 2015 Camry will be available in four models, the value-driven LE, the sporty SE, the new XSE and the premium XLE. The new XSE builds on the success of the SE with an edgier look, enthusiastic driving dynamics and luxurious amenities, making it the sportiest Camry yet.

All Camry gas models will be powered by the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of peak torque. It's teamed with a standard six-speed automatic transmission with the combination offering EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/ 35 MPG highway/ 28 MPG combined fuel economy. The XSE and XLE will also offer a 3.5-liter V6 with the six-speed automatic, generating 268 horsepower.

More For Your Money
The two most popular Camry models, LE and SE, receive pricing that is virtually unchanged from the 2014.5 model. Both models are equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Each is each heavily equipped with standard convenience features and for 2015 add 8-way power driver's seat with power lumbar support, shift lever boot with contrast stitching, satin chrome interior accents, passenger window auto up-down, chrome front upper grille and rear trunk garnish (smoked chrome on SE), and heated outside mirrors. The SE gas model also adds a standard 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display and direct tire pressure monitor system.

Camry XSE and XLE models equipped with the four-cylinder engine each add more standard features over the LE and SE, including leather-trimmed seating with multi-stage heated front seats and four-way power passenger seat on the XLE or leather-trimmed seating with Ultrasuede® inserts and multi-stage heated front seats and 4-way power passenger seat on the XSE. Additional standard features include Entune Audio Plus multimedia system, LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels with a super chrome finish on the XLE and 18-inch alloy wheels with machined face and black paint for the XSE. In all, there is nearly $1,200 worth of added standard equipment for the XLE but an MSRP increase of only $340.

Camry V6 versions of the XSE and XLE add standard LED high and low headlights, Smart Key entry, Entune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite including a 7-inch High-Resolution Touch-Screen Display, power tilt/slide moonroof, Qi wireless charging capability and much more.

THE Camry Hybrid
Camry Hybrid will be available in three grades, the value driven LE, sporty SE and the premium XLE. Each grade is equipped with more standard equipment than ever before. Among the features now standard on the Camry Hybrid LE are 8-way power driver's seat including power lumbar, and the 4.2-inch TFT multi information display.

The Camry Hybrid SE adds Sport fabric SofTex®-trimmed front seats with seatback pockets; 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support; Leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic three-spoke steering wheel with Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio controls; and silver interior trim.

The Hybrid XLE grade adds standard leather-trimmed seating with multi-stage heated front seats and 4-way power passenger seat, LED daytime running lights, direct tire pressure monitor system and 17-inch alloy wheels with super chrome finish.

Safety First
All 2015 Camry models will come standard with best-in-class 10 airbags. Like all current Toyota vehicles, the 2015 Camry comes standard with the STAR Safety System, which includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. It also features the Smart Stop Technology brake-override system.

The 2015 Camry also offers advanced safety features including Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Auto High Beam, and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Pricing
The Camry LE receives a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $22,970 while the SE will carry a base price of $23,840. The XSE and XLE models will carry identical MSRP's of $26,150 for models equipped with the four-cylinder and $31,370 for the V6 versions.

Pricing for the Camry Hybrid will start at $26,790 for the LE model, $27,995 for the SE, and $29,980 for the premium XLE.

The MSRP for the 2015 Camry does not include the delivery, processing, and handling (DPH) fee of $825. The DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States Toyota (GST) may vary.

      I actually like Toyota, but I cannot imagine buying this over a Mazda 6 or an Accord.  It's pretty awful.

        Ok

        I guess if one's primary concern was a quiet, comfortable ride one might plausibly pick the Camry over the Accord or Mazda6.

        Unfortunately enthusiasts' opinion does not equate to average consumers' purchase, or Mazda should have done much better.

        I don't see a weak spot in Mazda's lineup other than the aged Mazda 2 (wait till 2016 model)

        This Camry is leaps and bounds beyond any in a long time. I actually like it. i would agree about buying one over the 6 though. Accord doesn't do much for me though. The 6 touring and grand touring models are sweet rides though. I just wish they gave it a larger engine option. Although the 6 moves good for what it has.

      Oh god what did they do to the front end! Don't they know that lexus style front end is crap!!!  I just don't know why this car sells so much, so many better choices out there, Mazda 6, Accord, Fusion...

        Let's be honest though, the old front end was nothing to write home about either.

      You would have to be blind to think this car is attractive. That bogus greenhouse extension makes me want to cry. And that grille, oh lord...

      Im pretty sure Toyota used Ned Flanders mustache as the design inspiration for this generation Camry.  Go ahead and Google it, i'll wait.

      What happened to the rear doors with those 'what the hell is it' quarter windows or what is it.. hmm ?

        @gtv4rudy

        Failed emergency mid-life re-design is what happened.The roof  & C-pillar is the same from the original 7th gen which features sharper lines. So in order to "make it work" they created this fake c-pillar which looks horrible.I own a 2012 Camry SE V6, so I may be bias, but this actually looks worse in SE/XSE flavoring than the original 7th gen Camry.

          I prefer the outgoing model as well. It has Toyota's classic refined and understated styling. They need to stick with what they're good at, because they're not going to win at making "beautiful" expressive cars (Same goes to Lexus).

          Did you not listen to the press release moron.. They left the roof the same.. Dum duh dum dum duh..

      Toyota, moving backwards! 

      Hazdaz
      • 3 Months Ago

      Regardless of what people think of this new grill design, the bigger issue is why is Toyota copying its own luxury division when it comes to styling elements?? 


      That's not a smart move even if people like the Lexus spindle-grill (which I personally am not a fan of), you don't want to be using it on all your products. 


      That's one of the things I really admire about Hyundai/Kia.  They are essentially the same cars used for both company, but both inside and out they have very unique styling.

        @Hazdaz

        Hyundai/Kia are now decent cars, but don't give them too much credit for styling.  They basically threw a bunch of money to hire designers from Europe.

          I would give credit where credit is due. Designers are hired to design... why should it matter who hires them?

      Iamazing
      • 3 Months Ago

      It's exactly as pathetic looking as I expected.  The spindle b.s. has migrated over from Lexus as has the profile "up swoop" from the IS.  Regardless, the usual idiots will salivate over it and buy it.

        @Iamazing

        Believe it or not, buyers don't "salivate" over Camrys.  They buy what is reliable, and what family and friends claim will cause them the least trouble over 10 years.

          Also more reliable and hold a high resale value. Smart buy

          Well that sure wouldn't be the Camry since it's cheapened 2007 onward redesign

          I couldn't agree more!  I am on my second Camry and loving it.  The first one was a 07 LE CPO with full warranty.  Paid $19.5 OTD.  I got hit in 2012 and it was totalled.  USAA paid me $17K.  I turned around and got another CPO 10 LE V6 with full warranty OTD $18K.  Been driving it every weekend from Fresno to SD and the cars drives like a champ.  No issues whatsoever.

      I swear a year ago the Camry started at $24k .. that same model year 2014 has dropped to $22.4 now but .. I think the prices are falling.

      Way to go Toyota!   Just when Lexus is finding its own design direction you go and steal its spindle grill merging the two brands once again...

        Thats ok because Lexus sort a kinda borrowed their grill design from Audi

        And strangely, Toyota and Lexus are the only vehicles with sport trim levels that are less attractive than "standard" versions.

          @over9000

          That's because I wasn't "complaining" I made a point!  And Ford and Aston Martin have nothing to do with the point I have made.

          Probably because that design actually looks great!

      Notice they try to trick you into thinking the greenhouse has changed, while all they did is add a black plastic piece to the rear sail panel behind the rear door.  Lame.
      MikeyGee
      • 3 Months Ago

      I feel like the front looks so "heavy" compared to the back, which looks small. The whole car looks oddly shaped and as others have said I cannot forgive them for that horrid C-pillar.
