2019 Toyota Camry Trims
The ever-popular and reliable Toyota Camry offers seven trim levels for 2019 (there is also a Camry Hybrid model with three trims). The conventional gas-burner comes in L, LE, XLE, XLE V6, SE, XSE, and XSE V6.
The L, LE, XLE, SE, and XSE Camry trims are powered by a 2.5-liter, 16-valve Dynamic Force four-cylinder double overhead cam engine that makes 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. On the XLE, a multi-mode feature is added, allowing a choice of three drive modes: ECO, Normal, and Sport. The trims with this engine are rated by the EPA to achieve 28 miles to the gallon in the city and up to 41 on the highway.
The XLE V6 and XSE V6 trims get a bit more power (along with somewhat lower fuel efficiency) from their larger engine, a 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC D-4S dual injection V6 with dual variable valve timing. This combination yields 301 horses and 267 lb-ft of torque and is EPA rated for 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. All Camry trims come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and some – the SE and XSE – come with paddle shifters.
The base L is well equipped with quite a package of safety features and other amenities. Highlights in this list of standard features are a rearview camera with a projected path feature, dynamic radar cruise control, wood interior trim, Apple CarPlay compatibility, ten airbags, lane departure alert, and occupant-protecting construction (side impact beams, front and rear crumple zones, and an energy absorbing steering column). The LE adds 17-inch wheels, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and additional cup holders. The XLE moves up to 18-inch wheels, auto on/off LED headlights, a chrome front grille, heated power side mirrors, automatic climate control with dual zones, Qi-compatible wireless device charging, a blind spot monitor, and leather upholstery. A dynamic guidelines feature is also added to the rearview camera.
The additions to the SE trim support its sporty appearance, with color-keyed rocker panels and spoiler, a sport mesh grille, black-finished 18-inch wheels, and SofTex upholstery. One level up, the XSE tacks on some more appearance amenities, from the gloss-black grille with mesh insert and 19-inch black alloy wheels to the dual exhaust with quad chrome tips. Inside, it gets ambient lighting and three USB ports. Besides swapping in a V6 in place of the four-cylinder and upping the horsepower by 98, the XSE V6 adds a 10-inch color head-up display and a power tilt/slide moonroof.
Several options are grouped as packages that can be added to upgrade your chosen trim’s standard equipment. The base trim is not eligible for any options packages, but buyers of the LE can tack on the Convenience Package (Smart Key system, HomeLink transceiver, and auto-dimming rearview mirror) or Audio Package (Audio Plus with App Suite, Qi smartphone charging). The XLE, XLE V6, XSE, and XSE V6 are eligible for the Navigation Package, which not only adds the nav system but upgrades the audio to a premium JBL system. Individual add-ons range from a bird’s-eye view camera with perimeter scan to a two-tone midnight black metallic roof and rear spoiler.
