Does Toyota’s TRD division made enough progress for the Camry attractive, or should you remain with the standard version? Toyota sent us into Dallas, Texas to drive the 2023 Camry TRD at the Texas Motor Speedway to see if we could determine.
2023 Toyota Camry TRD Redesign
Interior And Exterior Design
The most recent Camry has already got the most aggressive style we’ve seen on the mid-sized sedan, but Toyota wanted to ensure that the TRD wouldn’t be mistaken for one variant of other trim levels. The 2023 Toyota Camry TRD via its 19-inch matte black wheels that come with an option of Bridgestone Potenza summer tires, the front splitter is gloss black along with side aero skirts and a rear diffuser sporting red pinstriping, cat-back exhausts featuring stainless-steel tips and black letters the red TRD badge Red brake calipers and, finally that Dominic Toretto approved rear wings.
Like as with the Camry XSE, the TRD model’s four exterior colors come with the Midnight Black roof and black mirror caps. Toyota will launch 2023’s Toyota Camry TRD in Wind Chill Pearl (white) and Midnight Black Metallic. Celestial Silver Metallic and the exclusive color of the TRD, Supersonic Red with other exclusive colors to be offered in the following model years.
Inside, the Camry TRD hasn’t been changed as much as its exterior, but there are a few design signals to remind drivers that they did not buy a normal Camry. There are only one interior color available, Black Sport Soft-Tex seats with inserts made of fabric with red accents. The entire cabin is adorned with red accents like seatbelts, stitching gauges, embroidered headrests including floor mats. It’s best to like the color red since there’s plenty of it throughout the interior and there aren’t any other colors to choose from. The interior stays the same as an ordinary Camry however Android Auto will be a welcome option for 2023’s model year.
2023 Toyota Camry TRD Engine
Do not expect any modifications under the hood since Toyota’s 3.5-liter V6 engine is completely in its stock configuration. But don’t fret, it has plenty of power, with 300 horsepower and 267 pounds of torque that is sent onto the front wheels via an eight-speed auto transmission. Remember, these were V8 figures only a couple of years ago. Fuel economy is estimated at 22/31/25 mpg city/highway/combined, which is just one mpg on the highway and one mpg overall less than the Camry XSE V6 (likely due to the additional drag from the spoiler).
The bigger P235 Michelin all-season tires as well as the optional Bridgestone Potenza Summer tires might provide a little greater grip from the start, but we’re expecting the Camry’s acceleration time of 5.8 seconds to stay the same. Toyota’s TRD division has focused the majority of its efforts improving the handling of the Camry with more robust underbody braces, custom coil springs (which are lower by 0.6 inches) as well as special-tuned shock absorbers and bigger 12.9-inch front brakes that have dual-piston calipers that replace single-piston units. Also, there’s a TRD cat-back exhaust that produces the sound of a roaring engine during acceleration. We guarantee that when you listen to it, you’ll think “that’s coming from the back of a Camry What’s that?”
2023 Toyota Camry TRD Release Date And Price
It’s not surprising that the sportsy TRD version comes with the highest price but, surprisingly, Toyota has priced it as the cheapest V6 Camry with a price of $31,040. Compare this figure to the $34,410 price for the beginning of the V6 XLE trim and the $34,960 price for the V6 XSE trim, and the 2023 Toyota Camry TRD stands out as a reasonable bargain.
