The 2015 Toyota Camry just hit the stage at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. Bill Fay, Toyota Division Group Vice President and General Manager, explained to a packed room of automotive journalist what they did to make it better than ever before.
Fay said they reinforced the body and added spot welds to increase torsional rigidity; a new, two-stage brake booster offers smoother and more confident braking and they re-tuned the suspension to deliver more responsive handling while maintaining the comfort our owners expect.
Here’s what they did with the exterior:
“The front end is all about attitude with a new bumper cover and a prominent grille. Brighter, best-in-class LED low and high-beam headlights feature sleek housings. We gave it a new hood paired with a more prominent character line that spans from its muscular fender flares across its new doors and rear quarter panel and into a freshly styled trunk giving it a clear sense of motion. New tail lamps sweep into the freshly tapered bumper cover. And the wider track gives the car a more athletic stance and confident curb appeal.”
He moved on to talk about the redesigned interior:
“We used soft-touch materials for a more refined look and feel. French stitching, satin chrome, and metallic black trim, dress up our premium models. Customers will recognize the seats, door panel and steering wheel have been improved. And we gave it a new center stack with simplified and intuitive controls. We also added top-flight electronics. A 4.2-inch multi-information display conveniently located in the meter cluster helps keep the driver’s attention on the road. Working with JBL, we custom-tuned the audio system for superior sound. Audio screens up to 7-inches display the latest and greatest Entune system. And the Camry even offers a segment-first wireless charging system for your phone. To improve NVH and make this the quietest Camry ever, we added almost 30% more carpet insulation while moving the side mirrors out further away from the cabin to reduce wind-noise.”
A few of the safety featured discussed include: Pre-collision system; Lane Departure Alert; Adaptive Cruise Control; Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert; and Auto High Beams.
