2022 Toyota Camry for Sale in Smithfield, RI
In an automotive world awash with SUVs and pickups, America’s best-selling passenger car doesn’t just live on – it thrives. The Toyota Camry’s continued success is a testament to the vehicle’s tried-and-true formula of value and practicality. After eight generations and four decades, the stylish Camry keeps attracting drivers, both repeat buyers and new devotees.
For the 2022 model year, even the base LE gets upscale features like dual-zone climate control and illuminated visor mirrors. Across the lineup, all Camrys receive a three-position drive mode selector to match behind-the-wheel preferences, and six trim choices ensure there’s a sedan for every taste and budget. Every one of them is covered by Toyota Care, which provides scheduled maintenance (mainly oil changes and tire rotations) and roadside assistance for 24 months or 25,000 miles.
Trims and Mechanical Specs
The 2022 Toyota Camry’s half-dozen trim choices are the LE, SE, SE Nightshade, XLE, XSE, and TRD. Standard power for all except the TRD is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 203 horsepower and 184 pounds-feet of torque (206 hp/184 lb-ft in the XSE). A 3.5-liter V6 producing 301 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque is available in the XLE and XSE and standard with the TRD. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard on all trims, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available on models with the four-cylinder engine. The addition of AWD will drop engine output by one horsepower and one lb.-ft. of torque.
The EPA-estimated fuel economy for a FWD Camry with the base engine is 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway (27 city/38 highway for the XLE and XSE). AWD Camrys are rated at 25 city/34 highway. For V6-equipped trims, the XLE is rated at 22 city/33 highway, while the XSE gets 22 city/32 highway and the TRD is rated at 22 city/31 highway.
Standard Equipment and Options
Some highlights of the LE’s standard features are LED exterior lighting, power side mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, intermittent windshield wipers, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 4.2-inch driver information display, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a six-way manual front passenger seat, fabric upholstery, a tilt and telescopic steering column, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and the Toyota Safety Sense suite of advanced driver aids (see below for details).
The SE should be the choice for anyone who likes some additional sportiness. This trim upgrades to 18-inch alloy wheels and a sport-tuned suspension, also getting a color-keyed rear spoiler, auto on/off headlights, heated power side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leatherette seats with power lumbar control for the driver. The SE Nightshade is equipped similarly, but with blacked-out wheels and black exterior trim.
XLE apparently stands for “extra luxury equipment,” since this trim’s seats and steering wheel are trimmed in leather, and it gets heated power side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, proximity keyless entry with push-button start, 7-inch driver information display, heated front seats, an eight-way power front passenger seat, rear-seat HVAC vents, and ambient interior lighting. The XSE’s standout assets are 19-inch wheels, the sport-tuned suspension, special exterior accents, and a dual exhaust with quad chrome tips.
TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development, and this surely is the Camry trim with a performance edge. It’s set apart by its extra-aerodynamic body, exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels, sport exhaust, sport-tuned suspension, proximity keyless entry with push-button start, and trim-specific exterior accents. On the inside the SofTex seating, cabin accents, and trim are TRD-specific. It also gets automatic climate control, a 4.2-inch driver information display, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a six-way manual front passenger seat, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
The major options include a panoramic sunroof (available on the four-cylinder XLE and XSE but standard on these trims with the V6) and the Cold Weather Package (heated steering wheel, heated power side mirrors, and heated front seats), which is available on the SE and SE Nightshade. The heated steering wheel is also available on the XLE and XSE.
Safety and Technology
All Camry trims include Toyota’s Safety Sense collection of advanced driver-assist technology: forward-collision mitigation, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlights, and traffic sign recognition. The XLE and higher trims get full-speed adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert (available on lower trims). In addition, the optional Driver Assist Package (a head-up display, a surround-view monitor, rear cross-traffic braking, and ventilated front seats) can be ordered on the XLE and XSE.
The LE, SE, SE Nightshade, and TRD get the standard infotainment system with its 7-inch touchscreen, six-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming, a USB-C port, a USB charge and media port, and a 12-volt accessory outlet. The XLE and XSE upgrade to a 9-inch touchscreen and SiriusXM satellite radio (these features are available on the other trims). Wireless device charging is standard on the XLE and XSE and available on lower trims. Navigation, which comes in conjunction with a nine-speaker JBL sound system, is available on the XLE and XSE; the JBL audio is optional on the TRD. All trims are eligible for a Wi-Fi hotspot and Toyota Connected Services (telematics).
