For 2020, America's best-selling car gets even better with the introduction of Camry TRD. This new trim takes already sporty SE grade and gives it a dose of performance with some major mechanical upgrades, including the adrenaline-pumping 3.5-liter V6 engine. The result is a jaw-dropping Camry that's bound to turn heads. And with production limited to only 6,100 units, this is an opportunity you won't want to miss. So let's find out what makes Camry TRD stand out from the rest of the crowd.
At first glance, it's obvious that this isn't your average Camry. The TRD grade sets itself apart with a gloss-black, red-pinstriped aero kit, providing a sleeker appearance thanks to its front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. And that rear pedestal wing isn't just for show - it helps with downforce for better vehicle stability.
Pther blacked-out exterior touches, like headlight housings, roof, side mirror caps, window trim, Toyota badge and nameplate lettering, as well as red TRD badging make it clear that Camry TRD means serious business.
The cabin is stitched together in red, from the leather-trimmed steering wheel to the floor mats - the latter of which also proudly wear the TRD logo. Camry TRD also comes exclusively witht he black SofTex - trimmed front seats with TRD-embroidered headrests, which perfectly complement Camry TRD's eye-catching red seatbelts. And once you're ready to get going, just push Start to watch the instrument cluster illuminate with a unique TRD start-up animation. Then use the TRD-debossed shift knob to put Camry TRD in Drive and set off.
WHEELS & BRAKES
In addition to being wider, Camry TRD's wheels are also lighter than Camry's SE's wheels. This weight difference means a reduction in unsprung mass, which helps enhance ride quality and turning agility. But that's not all. Hiding behind these lightweight wheels are bigger brakes that sport 12.9-inch front rotors and dual-piston, red-painted calipers. This increased stopping power helps balance Camry TRD's 301-horsepower powerplant. And the entire wheel and brake package is wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza P235/40R19 summer tires to help maintain grip.
Suspension upgrades like TRD-tuned front and rear shocks help keep Camry TRD planted by improving vehicle body control while maintaining on-road ride quality. Next, stiffer front and rear sway bars help increase torsional rigidity by 44 percent and 67 percent respectively for flatter and more confident cornering. Then there's a larger threepiece underbody brace, which makes Camry TRD more agile by reducing body flex, allowing the suspension to work more effectively. Finally, a rear seat V-brace adds even more torsional rigidity, while also replacing Camry's 60/40 split fold-down rear seat with a fixed rear seat.
