It has a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an optional 3.5-liter V6, as well as a six-speed automatic transmission for both engines. Toyota says its 2012 Camry Hybrid will get 43 mpg city fuel economy with a 650-mile range with its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
“Competition in the midsize sedan segment is the strongest it’s ever been, and the all-new Camry is designed to maintain its long-standing leadership while also broadening its appeal,” says Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager.
