The 2011 Toyota Camry comes to us as America's continuously best-selling vehicle for the eighth straight year, even though Toyota's reputation was damaged by Toyota's highly publicized recalls for unintended acceleration. America's have known exactly what to expect from the Toyota Camry for years. It's been a reliable, comfortable commuter for millions, which helped it conquer the market as the best-selling car in the US for nearly a decade.
The 2011 Camry remains the same since its last redesigned for the 2008 model year. The vehicle is available in a stripped down base model, a better equipped LE edition, a sport tuned SE model, and a top of the line XLE trim level. The 2011 Camry is offered with a choice of two engines, a 2.5-liter four cylinder making 169 horsepower, or a 3.5-liter V6 making 268 horsepower. The two have very different qualities, with the four cylinder performing just adequate. The V6, however, out powers the V6 engines found in almost all of its major competitors.
Which manual transmissions in midsize cars are becoming increasingly rare, the 2011 Camry is still available with a six speed manual at almost any trim level. A six speed automatic is also offered, and is standard on the top of the lone XLE. The exterior of the 2011 Camry is unchanged and still as plain and bland as ever. Inside, the cabin of the 2011 Camry is well thought out, with easy to use controls, comfortable seating and electronics that are typical for its class. There are few negative reviews about the Camry's seats, but some have mentioned the lack of support with the SE model's upholstery.
The features list for the 2011 Camry is typical of the class. There's nothing glaringly missing, but nothing exceptional, either. The interior remains easy to use and most importantly, very comfortable.
