2015 Toyota Camry Powertrains Unchanged, Prices Rise $100-$1355

Although the refreshed 2015 Toyota Camry looks completely different on the outside, it remains practically the same as the previous Camry under the skin. Toyota has announced full information on its best-selling sedan, detailing the updated model’s carryover powertrains, new features, and slightly increased pricing that now starts at $23,795 with destination for the base LE model.

We previously thought that Toyota might revise the refreshed Camry’s powertrains for greater performance and fuel economy, but this is not the case, as the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, the 3.5-liter V-6, and the 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid system all continue on unchanged. The 178-hp four-cylinder comes standard on all trims except for Camry Hybrid models; the 268-hp V-6 is available in either sporty XSE or luxurious XLE trims; and the Camry Hybrid comes in LE, SE, and XLE trims. EPA ratings for the four-cylinder are unchanged at 25/35/28 mpg city/highway/combined, meaning that the 2015 Camry continues to lag behind competitors like the Nissan Altima (27/37/31 mpg) and Honda Accord (27/36/31 mpg); V-6 and hybrid EPA numbers are not yet available.

The base Camry L trim level is gone, leaving the 2015 Toyota Camry LE as the base model, which now comes standard with a power driver’s seat and a 4.2-inch infotainment display and carries a $100 premium over last year’s model. The $24,665 Camry SE also goes up by $100 and adds the power driver’s seat, and the $26,975 XLE model costs $340 more than last year, or $665 more than last year with the V-6 which now costs $31,195. The 2015 Toyota Camry’s new XSE model, which aims to be even sportier than the SE, costs the same as the XLE in both four-cylinder and V-6 forms. The XSE V-6 also replaces the SE V-6 model.

Camry Hybrid prices do rise slightly more, with the Hybrid LE ($27,615) going up $460, the Hybrid XLE ($30,805) going up $1355, and the Camry Hybrid SE that was introduced as a limited edition last year is now a mainstay in the hybrid lineup with its $28,820 price.

New available features for the 2015 Toyota Camry Lineup include active safety technologies like forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, and a blind spot monitor. There is also an updated Entune multimedia system for some models, and LED daytime running lights in addition to the numerous interior and exterior upgrades for the refreshed Camry.

Stay tuned for more details about the 2015 Toyota Camry including full option pricing before the car goes on sale in late September.

Camry for 2015 has very subtle changes. The styling is refined, not changed. The interior has lost some of it's add on look (the clock now looks like it belongs there). And don't forget that Noise, Vibration and Harshness is much better. Toyota does not want to mess with its bread and butter car that a lot of folks buy for primary transportation. It is hard for me to believe that the Hybrid Camry only accounts for eight per cent of total sales.
The car seems to not make any waves, being rather contemporary not way out there. I know, the power trains are the same, but so what? They work and they last. The 2015 Camry will still sell well no matter what. 
Toyota is noted for reliable transportation with willing customers waiting to buy or lease them. Even with all the bad press they got over the accelerator sticking, their products are built to a higher standard. And they will also fix their cars, the last one about the pedal was chopped off so it can not hang on anything.
Think of all the other makers out there and think of all the problems that manufacturers have had in recent years. Nobody is perfect, and when you are on top people will make a bigger deal of anything that goes wrong with your product. They may be appliances but I would rather have that than something that breaks down every other day. Let us hope that they are building a little more sporty cars without forgetting the dependable and reliability factors of the past. Time will tell if they have done a great job.

It still looks like a womanmobile. Besides we typical buy trucks from cars.com or buyherepayherelistings.com because the prices are more reasonable and you typically ain't got worry about all the crazy finance charges these banks like to tack on to the sticker.
The front clip looks better but the rear looks like a mix of an old Accord & an older Sonata.

Styled by committee, built by penny-pinchers. So sad! I drive a '14 Accord Sport, w/6-spd manual. Even the Hyundai Sonata looks better than this.
Wow...finally Toyota moved in a direction to make the Camry less ugly.  I kinda like this design.  I like the Accord design better but this one is nice.
