2010 Toyota Camry gets engine upgrade

2010 Toyota Camry
The 2010 Toyota Camry, first shown at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show recently, has quietly received a minor facelift and an engine upgrade.

The 2010 Camry has upgraded to a new 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine equipped with “variable valve timing with intelligence,” also known as VVT-i. It produces 169 hp for basic Camry versions, and the sportier SE gets 179 hp to back up its sports suspension. A 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift are available.

Exterior changes include a new grille and front bumper, an enlarged lower intake, larger headlights and restyled tail lamps. The base Camry gets restyled wheel covers, while the higher grades get 16-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, and the sporty SE gets new 17-inch wheels.

The Camry Hybrid, equipped with a petrol engine backed up by an electric motor, gets a completely unique front grille and bumper design. The outgoing hybrid is under service in Dubai as experimental taxis, and it is possible these cars may become available to the buying public in the near future.

Inside, the Camry is available with an optional audio system equipped with a new USB port for auxiliary music sources, Bluetooth, integrated satellite radio, single-CD, and MP3 and streaming music capability. All Camry models will now be equipped with stability control and traction control, at least in the United States market. Auto up/down power windows with jam protection on all four doors is standard equipment.

The 2010 Camry will go on sale in the UAE and the GCC by the end of 2009, but will not have the upgraded engine.

  1. not much change same boring slow car… i like altima and accord both r good looking and fast.

  2. Why don’t they sell these with a V6?

  3. nice car.
    and now we have another reason to buy it.

  4. They dont sell it with a V6 because toyota has no imagination hence they brought out the Aurion which is essentially the camry with a V6.So if they bring in the V6 it might take sales away from this..They have the V6 option in the US since as far as i know they dont get the Aurion..Not too sure on this tho..

  5. Do I see twin exhausts!!!!

    Hate the rear lights….Never liked this car…maybe the new engine upgrades will make it a bit more exciting…though being a camry…I highly doubt it…

  6. 169 hp for a 2.5L isn’t impressive compared to the 2.5L Altima..however, the SE is the one that will be pit against the altima and accord for performance anyway. 179hp with sports suspensions and 17 inchers sounds like a good competition.

  7. still accord is bigger has more HP compared to camry though 1 litre short

  8. YAAY!!..This means new taxi’s in a years time:)….new camry cabs.This is one of the main reason that makes people go for the Accord.

  9. Taxis might as well, stop taking camrys. for their green taxis, malibu and for the regular red roof ‘Dubai Taxi’, the sonata.

  10. Lets wait and see..I doubt they cut off the camry. Its been their since 96′ :).

  11. Nice, the new camry might have got a bit smaller & went a bit cheaper on quality but this little punch in performance makes me want to buy one.. I hope they sell the 6spd manual here…

  12. why don’t ya just get an altima? toyota has just lost it. Nothing in their line-up excites me anymore…

  13. hmm, heard people saying this since years, but same old story in dubai, Toyota, Nissan, Honda followed by others, some models from other manufacturers making marks here and there but nothing new. Those who buy BMW, Merc, Lexus and Infinity & Range Rovers will be least bothered. They have money in pocket, resale or no resale.

  14. another piECE of S–t…. toyOTa ALwaYS Su–s..

  15. he..he..quite true toyota always su-s thats why its no. 1 manufacturer in world.

  16. its nice not bad at all

  17. I think a more sportier steering wheel should be provided with the SE cause the standard one is plain BORING!!!

  18. Toyota’s no. 1 one cuz of blind people…

  19. Well camry is the most reliable vehicle here in dubai, otherwise you wont see lot many taxi camrys , also seen n the new altima taxi ‘s these days guess the only vehicle you wont see as a taxi is the accord!

  20. I have a feeling the sonatas are going to replace the camrys due to recession!!! 😯

  21. yes, sonatas are better for taxi drivers ,they might take more holidays due to their cars maintenance issues, than those taxi drivers who use camrys.

  22. @xander – the new accord’s power is rated @ 178 hp…but the point is, only the SE has 179 hp while the standard models have the engine detuned to 169 hp; guess Toyota is only becoming more and more stupid!! And if speed is the issue here, then the new Altima and the new Mazda 6 kills both while the 2.3L Ford Mondeo easily catches up with both! And talking about Camry’s reliability; the old camry used to be one of the best in that case while the new Camry seems to have both quality and reliability problems. The very taxi drivers who drive the new camrys are saying this.

  23. the new Camry 08 as far as i know has 159 hp gross 169 may be net hp toyota are good car for old PEOpLe because they need to HAve comfort of there oLD sofas every where…that’s why its no 1 selLer in the World

  24. ^^^^ I was talking about the 2010 camry..and the ’08 Camry is rated at 159hp net…by the way, net figures will always be lower than the gross figures since it is after calculating the power loss through the drivetrain while the gross power indicates the raw power of the engine. However, it is still the old man’s car, as cayanide said 😆

  25. the camry is rotting in cities ….. how much linger should we wait to get a new camry exterior … 25 years or more……..

  26. Accord alwayzz sucks…look 2009 accord, it has very poor shape…too big…dull styling…..camry always rocks that’s why it is the best selling car all around the world

  27. yes.. camry has a great interior…Any one should try to drive accord and camry.I drive both accord and camry…accord is more faster then camry but camry is so smooth, very good handling and reliable…I dont like accord specially for the high way….camry is also good for drifting..:) camry won 🙂

  28. 😎 Would have to agrea with most of you around the world who finds Toyota’s line up to be lacking power and excitement. As for styling and reliability Camry has always been great for a daily driver and also resale value. Being that I work at A Toyota Dealership, we just took delivery of th 2010 V-6 6speed manual trans…WOW!! Screw Accord amd Altima,I wouldnt have said that a year ago. Interesting points of view from everyone!! 😀

  29. Just traded my 07 Camry LE V6. Not an ounce of troble with that car. Was looking at the Caddy CTS $45,000 but it rode horrible. Went and bought a 2010 Camry LE V6. This car has good looks, great quality and value. Cost to own the 07 Camry was $2800 per year for 3 years (paid cash). Try doing that with a Lincoln or a Caddy.

  30. Hey, plz check this website…You will find that camry V6 is more faster than altima and accord..Camry always ROCKS… http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/112_0802_midsize_sedan_comparison/specs_and_road_test_data.html

  31. my uncle has the new Camart v6.

    The Camary looks cool but there is alot of it in the road makes it not. I think the Camary looks better than the Altima.

    Toyota is still a reliable brand but it not as reliable as it used to be.

  32. I think CAMRY SE has an extra ordinary looks..SE looks more better than accord and altima.However camry GL is not look better than accord..CAMRY SE has an sporty look 🙂

  33. CAMRY SE HAS AN EXTRA ORDINARY LOOKS.IT LOOKS MORE BETTER THAN ACCORD AND ALTIMA..SE HAS AN SPORTY LOOK. HOWEVER CAMRY GL HAS NOT GOOD LOOKS AS ACCORD… BUT CAMRY SE ALWAYZ ROCKS…love it

  34. You want style, buy an Altima, you want features buy an Altima, you want better fuel consumption buy an Altima, want value for money buy an Altima, want better resale buy an Altima, want better service buy an Altima. I had a Camry previously and then I bought the New Altima,no problems compared to the new Camry, a complete tension free car. Honda Accord is too highly priced for the features which by the way are so basic that it su(|<s.

  35. when is camry 2010 comming in abu dhabi. suppose to come in the start of summer 2009. anybody knows????????????

  36. i dont know what you guy,s are talking about i have a camry 2008 se v6 with 279hp this car will leave your little civic in the dust and go head to head againts almost anny other v6 sedan and probably win its an extremely fast and powerfull car i love it..

  37. the camry se is a 4cylinder engine & its max output is 157hp.

  38. Camry does not come with six air bags!! Any reasons? Is it because Camry is anyway being used only for Taxis or is there any other reasons?

  39. I checked with dealers today , The 2010 model is still with 2.4 engine,5A gear. the changes are:
    1-grill slightly
    2-Blue tooth shifted on the steering
    3-wheels biger
    4-brake light new look
    5-removable holders

  40. With the same price you can buy Lumina S.

    1 Million times better than a Camry & RWD….

    Camry, Accord, Altima, Maxima are all Stupid FWD cars which are heavily overpriced….
    These cars are no value for your money…

  41. the 2010 camry is a great car anybody out there says its a bad car does not know how to judge a vechile..if u want to make it to the finish line buy toyota

  42. Hi,
    The Aurion car has launched instead of Creseda. So that there is no match of Camery with Aurion and Accord. These cars are good but no match with Camery, dear all Camery is camery and please don’t match it with other cars, camery is reliable and much competent than the other one.

  43. I think lumina is one of the shit car i ever seen in my life, it is one of the big blond, there is only one stupid person among 100 million people who told that Lumnia is better than other one. Dear Camry compares with other cars is totally out of person’s mind. Be Improve your self.

  44. I think camry has made amazing changes in exterior and interior to dominate altima.Toyota is the best reliable car in the world and best choice for indians which is largest community in UAE.Camry should avail in altima’s price.

  45. driving a camry is like watching a south indian porn movie….kills any internal drive u have in life

  46. when is the 2010 camry sports edition getting realised in uae???

  49. WHAT EVER IT MAY BE TOTOTA VEHICLES ARE THE NO.1 VEHICLES FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE.

  50. HAHAHAHAA….SAJU, U MUST DEFINITELY BE EARNING MORE THAN 15K – TO BUY THAT CRAP AND FOR IT’S MAINTENANCE CHARGES WHICH IS NOW HIGHER THAN SOME OF THE EUROPEAN CARS…AND RELIABILITY?? TELL ME THAT ABOUT 2007 CAMRY AND I’LL BELIEVE YOU; ANYTHING AFTER THAT IS BULLSHIT AND IT IS A PROVEN FACT – CHECK WITH AL FUTTAIM TECHNICIANS FOR MORE DETAILS!

  51. how.

  52. Who wants to buy an overpriced Taxi.

  53. i put 123000 km on my 2007 camry hybrid after this i can tell you that its a wonderful Roomy rigid luxury car v6 acceleration fuel efficient (44.3 mpg hwy when cruise control 120km, 34 city) its reliable all replacement are breaks once and the water pumb no thing bad, although the bad roads i drive on the car still give superior ride quality,i am thinking now in lexus rx 450 hybrid.

  54. toyota should have given more attention at the aurion trd developed in aussie, and made a rwd & awd option. nevertheless, aurion TRD still rocks. TOYOTA 4EVER! see more amateur races in youtube for yourselves….CAMRY ROCKS!

  55. not very good car plz do not buy

  56. I am driving Camry for last 3 years continuously for average 300km per day. I am feeling more comfortable and smooth driving especilly in highways. Also I have not experienced any major issues.

  57. Camry is the best……so the rest of you can just suck up your complaints…
