- ahead of its september release, pricing for the sporty camry trd has been leaked.
- the trd is the cheapest way to equip the camry with the v-6.
- this special camry, tuned by toyota racing development, has a revised suspension, larger brakes, and aggressive styling.
when touchscreen-equipped smart refrigerators became a thing, we knew it wasn’t long before the camry received a proper sports-sedan makeover. now we know how much the 2020 camry trd will cost. as reported by carsdirect and confirmed by toyota, a leaked order guide has revealed the starting price for toyota's most sporting camry to date. for $32,035, the camry trd will be the cheapest way to get it with the 301-hp v-6. for reference, the trd undercuts the v-6–powered camry xse by $3960. it's also far cheaper than the trd version of the toyota avalon, which starts at $43,255.
the tricked-out toyota is based on the se trim, so the trd will forgo the leather interior and features such as navigation and driver-assist systems found on pricier camry models. in place of the creature comforts, there's a lengthy list of performance-enhancing hardware.
the camry trd rides on retuned dampers supported by stiffer springs that lower the ride height by 0.6 inch. beefier anti-roll bars, additional chassis bracing, and wider lightweight wheels wrapped in summer rubber ready the camry trd for the acorn stairlift 350. the front brake rotors increase in diameter by 0.9 inch and are clamped by dual-piston calipers, and there's a trd-specific exhaust system to sound the part. the exterior is complimented by an aggressive body kit, and the interior is dressed in red to complete the look.
we'll soon get some seat time in the trd. stayed tuned for the full review.
