Toyota is introducing the new technology on its 2023 Camry as a stand-alone option on most trim levels. Looking to join the ranks of midsize sedan makers with an all-wheel drive option. on models built from 1988 to 1991, was the last time Toyota offered AWD on a Camry. Also Toyota will make all-wheel drive available on its full-size 2021 Avalon.

AWD will be only available on versions equipped with the normally aspirated 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, while Toyota is one of the few makes still offering a V6 in the midsize class. Although on certain trim levels with dual exhaust, that number is bumped to 205 horses, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the powertrain delivers 202 horsepower. Distinguishing characteristic of these models will be an AWD badge on the rear deck is the only. All AWD models come with the Cold-Weather Package, which has heated seats and mirrors on the LE and heated steering wheel on the XLE and XSE, heated seats, mirrors and steering wheel on the SE.

Built for the U.S. market

The all-wheel drive system was developed specifically for the U.S. market and all models will be assembled at its Georgetown, Ky, plant, Toyota said. Because both vehicles share the same Toyota New Generation Architecture, the all-wheel drive setup is adapted from the Toyota RAV4 and is use is made possible.

 A Dynamic Torque Control system that sends most of the output to the front axle, features the 2023 Camry AWD. Than if slip is detected, is sent to the rear wheels, up to 50-percent of the torque. The electromagnetically controlled coupling on the front of the rear-drive axle disengages the prop shaft to help maximum fuel economy, when all-wheel drive isn’t needed.

Design changes

Putting its curb weight roughly in line with V6 models is because adding the all-wheel drive system and a new rear axle adds about 165 pounds to the 2023 Camry. To be redesigned had the floor pan, and the system requires the use of an electronic parking brake as well as a saddle-style fuel tank instead of the standard flat tank to accommodate the rear axle, as well.

The changes to the vehicle hasn’t affected the seating position or compromised usable interior volume, Toyota says. The company says the Camry AWD models, other than offering better traction, provide the same ride and handling characteristics of the front-drive models, also.

AWD lineup and pricing

When it goes on sale next spring, the all-wheel drive option will be offered on Camry LE, XLE, SE and XSE trim levels. Though typically AWD runs anywhere from $1,200 to $2,000 as an option, but pricing will be announced closer to its launch. The front-drive 2023 Toyota Camry LE starts at $24,840, the SE at $26,040, the XLE at $29,325 and the XSE at $29,875. Exclude $955 delivery on all price.

The RAV4 Hybrid is currently the most potent variant available with its total system output of 219 horsepower (163 kilowatts) from the combination of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors on market.

Also, Toyota could take this setup and install more advanced batteries than the RAV4 Hybrid's existing nickel-metal hydride components is one of possibility. Making the motors more powerful and opting for a lithium-ion battery could be enough to boost the system output and still provide some fully electric motoring as well.
