The Pit Boss

According to Toyota, Camry has been the best-selling car in America for 14 consecutive years. The Camry has consistently surpassed strong competition from popular vehicles including the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. The 2017 Toyota Camry is offered in three different powertrains including a V-6 engine. Interestingly, most brands have ditched the V-6 entirely while the Camry retains its lust for power.

The 2017 higher trim levels (XLE and XSE) come standard with ENtune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation. What exactly does this system do? It allows users to integrate the vehicle’s infotainment system with the Scout navigation app on any smartphone that is compatible with the system. No subscription is needed for the app. The XLE and XSE four-cylinder engine trim levels come equipped with the Qi wireless smartphone charging system. Unfortunately, this system is not compatible with an iPhone. As far as paint options are concerned, the SE and XSE trim levels are offered in a Blue Streak Metallic color that was previously reserved for the 2016 Toyota Camry Special Edition model.

According to MotorTrend, “The Camry’s four-cylinder engine provides adequate power and is relatively smooth and quiet. For quicker acceleration, the optional six-cylinder is surprisingly potent and is just slightly thirstier than the four-cylinder.” A sport-tuned suspension comes standard with the SE and XSE which helps control body roll while simultaneously providing a smooth and quiet ride. The LE and XLE trim options have a softer suspension configuration.
