Toyota’s next Camry will be exclusively hybrid

Toyota's latest Camry boasts improved HEV performance, electronic AWD integration and comprehensive warranties.

Toyota said its new 2025 Toyota Camry will be an exclusively Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). Powering the Camry is Toyota’s first-ever sedan pairing of its 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine and fifth-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS 5). Combining the engine’s power with two electric motors, Toyota said this new HEV has a standard 225 net combined horsepower on Front Wheel Drive (FWD) models and 232 HP on Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) equipped models. The 2025 Toyota Camry is expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships in the Spring of 2024.

Toyota said its engineers have also tuned the new HEV system at lower speeds to reduce engine RPM and increase power from the traction battery to provide satisfying acceleration and torque feel. The Toyota Camry will also adopt the “Beyond Zero” badge to highlight Toyota’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

Toyota said the electronic on-demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) has been adapted to work seamlessly with the hybrid system. The electronically controlled AWD features precise on-demand front-rear torque distribution in accordance with driving conditions to support start-off acceleration, handling, fuel efficiency and stability when driving on slippery road surfaces such as snow, the manufacturer said.

Toyota said its 36-month or 36,000-mile basic new-vehicle warranty included for the 2025 Camry applies to all components other than normal wear and maintenance items. Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and against perforation from corrosion for 60 months with no mileage limitation. Hybrid-related components that require repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship are covered for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The hybrid battery is covered for 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first, and is transferable across ownership.

The 2025 Toyota Camry also comes with ToyotaCare, a plan covering normal factory-scheduled maintenance, for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and two years of unlimited mileage of roadside assistance.

Any way you slice it, 2023 was one big platform for expressing fears around EVs. Read past the headlines, and many articles demonstrated a lack of context or understanding of the technology.
