The 2017 Toyota Camry has arrived in Marietta, and it promises three exciting engine options to choose from. From efficient hybrids to powerful gas engines, there’s an option for everyone. Known for its reliable performance matched with a number of luxury features, this spacious sedan is perfect for drivers of Smyrna or Vinings. Check out our comprehensive view of the available performance configurations below, and then meet us for a test drive near Atlanta.

Engine Specifications

There are three engines available on the new Toyota Camry.

  • 2017 Toyota Camry 092.5L 4-cylinder engine: This engine is featured on the LE, XLE 4-Cyl, SE, and XSE 4-Cyl. It boasts Toyota Direct Injection (TDI) and 16-valve dual variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i).

  • 3.5L V6 engine: Featured on the XLE V6 and XSE V6, this engine steps up the thrill. With TDI, it also features 24-valve Dual VVT-i.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine: This engine works with a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor and a sealed nickel-metal hydride battery to offer you eco-friendly power.

Horsepower and Torque

Depending on your driving style, you’ll want to choose the engine that has the power output that will meet your sporty or commuter-friendly needs.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder engine: This engine produces up to 178-hp and manages up to 170 lb.-ft. of torque.

  • 3.5L V6 engine: Turning it up a few notches, this engine generates up to 268-hp for a rev you can feel. It manages up to 248 lb.-ft. of torque — a big difference.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine: The net horsepower of this hybrid engine is 200-hp.


Depending on the model you choose, there are two available transmissions. One is designed for gear selection with gasoline models, and the other transmission works with hybrid technology for seamless transitions with high efficiency.

  • Automatic Transmission: On the LE, XLE, SE, XSE trims, a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic transmission with intelligence and sequential shift mode allows you to manage gears with ease.

  • Continuously Variable Transmission: With all three hybrid trims, your engine will be matched with an Electronically Controlled CVT which provides you with maximum efficiency.

Fuel Economy

All 2017 Toyota Camry models work with front-wheel drive, which means you’ll have better fuel economy. While all three engine options offer you great gas mileage, the V6 trades in a few miles for extra power with the pedal.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder engine: Fuel Economy estimates come in at 33 mpg highway*, 24 mpg city*, and 27 mpg combined*.

  • 3.5L V6 engine: This engine will give you 30 mpg highway*, 21 mpg city*, and 24 mpg combined*.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine: You’ll have far less stops at the gas station with this engine. You’ll get up to 38 mpg highway*, 42 mpg city*, and 40 mpg combined* on the LE trim. On the Hybrid SE and Hybrid XLE, you’ll get up to 37 mpg highway*, 40 mpg city*, and 38 mpg combined*.

Special Performance Features

In addition to all of the options listed above, the 2017 Toyota Camry was designed with other performance features that work together to deliver a smooth and practical ride that you can enjoy for years to come.

  • Paddle Shifters: On both the SE and XSE models, you’ll have paddle shifters located behind the steering wheel. These allow you to switch gears of the 6-speed automatic transmission manually, giving you the specificity you want when you need it.

  • Dual Exhaust: At the rear of the vehicle, a dual exhaust system offers you both peak performance as well as a stylish touch to the body.

  • Push Button Start: Without having to dig for your keys, you can ignite the engine with the push of a button next to the steering wheel, in addition to being able to lock and unlock the doors.

  • Driver Assistance Features: Many advanced technologies are available to take action to offer you premium safety, including Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning.

  • ECO and EV Modes: On the hybrid models, these driving modes allow you to take advantage of higher fuel efficiency or pure battery power.
