2013 Toyota Camry Overview
Renowned for its reliability, the 2013 Toyota Camry offers great value and peace of mind.
The Camry has long been one of, if not the best-selling cars in America for several decades. It got a complete redesign last year that gave it brand new styling inside and out, as well as improved fuel economy and added standard features. Toyota also says that 90-percent of the Camry’s purchased in the last 15 years are still on the road today, an impressive testament to the midsize sedan’s reliability and low cost of maintenance.
Since it was completely made over last year, the 2013 Camry does not feature any changes from last year’s model. 16-inch wheels are standard, while higher trim levels and the sporty SE trim get larger 17- and 18-inch cogs. V-6 equipped models get a dual exhaust to distinguish them from their four-cylinder counterparts.
Speaking of engines, the Camry has a pair of good ones: a 178-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder that serves as the base engine, while those looking for more passing power and performance can upgrade to the aforementioned 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard and the sporty SE trim adds paddle shifters for closer control over shifting.
The redesigned Camry improved fuel economy over its predecessor by 10-percent and the 2013 model has the same figures: 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway with the four-cylinder and 21/30 mpg city/highway with the V-6. These numbers place the Camry near the top of the midsize segment, just behind the 2013 Honda Accord.
Whether you’re looking for a budget friendly commuter or a more luxurious cruiser, the Camry has you covered with plenty of standard features to go along with a long list of premium options. All Camry’s come with air conditioning, power windows and locks, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and cruise control. Also standard are Bluetooth connectivity and a USB/iPod input, useful tech features. Looking to spruce up the Camry a little more? Leather upholstery, powered/heated front seats, and wood-grain interior trim pieces are optional. Advanced technology like dual-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system, and Toyota’s Entune infotainment system is also available. Entune connects your smartphone to the Camry and provides services like localized Bing searches and internet radio; a three-year subscription to this service is complimentary with the purchase of a new Camry.
The 2013 Camry performed very well in crash tests, receiving a five-star rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. Standard safety features include 10 airbags, all-disc antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system.
