2016 Toyota Camry Toyota Dealer Serving Chicago
The 2016 Toyota Camry from Elmhurst Toyota a Toyota dealer serving Chicago continues its reign as the best-selling car in the U.S. This is unsurprising given the sedan’s comfortable ride, spacious interior, great driver visibility and numerous features, many of which are usually found in more premium and even luxury brands. Though the current generation Camry was redesigned back in 2014, the automaker continues to innovate with the addition of the Special Edition model to the 2016 lineup as well as updates to the Entune infotainment system. Also, two new exterior color choices, Blizzard Pearl and Blue Streak Metallic, are now offered.
The Camry Makes Driving From Chicago To The Suburbs In Style
For 2016, the Toyota Camry can be had in LE, SE, Special Edition, XSE and XLE trim levels. All come with 10 airbags as standard including a front-passenger knee airbag and rear side airbags. Other safety and security features include anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control systems, and a rear-view camera. More advance safety technologies like a lane-departure warning system and stolen vehicle locator are available on select trims and models. The NHTSA awarded its maximum five stars in overall safety to the Camry while the non-profit IIHS gave its highest rating of “Good” to the sedan in crash tests like roof strength.
The Camry Hybrid, which comes with most of the same safety features and ratings as the gas-powered models, is not covered in the review.
The 2016 Toyota Camry Provides Performance and Great Gas Mileage
Those gas engines are a 2.5-liter inline-4 and a 3.5-liter V-6. The four cylinder engine is found standard in most Camry models and gets a competitive 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. The more potent V-6, which can be had on the XSE and XLE, comes in at 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. Regardless, transmission is a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy ranges from an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in combined driving with the V-6 and up to 28 mpg combined with the four.
As for the driving experience, here’s what Edmunds noted after some time behind the wheel: “Of course, the Camry has traditionally been known for its comfort and quietness, and fortunately those traits are still abundantly present. Even the sport-tuned trims have a supple ride, but if you want the creamiest suspension possible, the LE and XLE certainly deliver. Under the hood, the base four-cylinder accelerates well enough, but the optional V6 is the star of the show with its effortless and seemingly endless thrust. Either way, the six-speed transmission is quite refined and notably quick to downshift.”
Automated headlamps, a power driver’s seat and Toyota’s advance Entune infotainment system are just some of the features found in the base LE. Step up to the higher trims and the list of standard features quickly expands with such niceties as leather upholstery, larger wheels, more advance versions of Entune and a wireless charging pad for phones.
