Toyota has unveiled the 2025 Toyota Camry, debuting a new generation for the four-door Chevy Malibu rival. The all-new 2025 Toyota Camry is now offered exclusively with a hybrid powertrain, and is available with all-wheel drive, neither of which is available on the current Chevy Malibu. The new-generation Camry also marks the end of the V6 engine for the midsize sedan, as the Camry was the last model to offer a six-cylinder powerplant in its segment.
Highlights for the all-new 2025 Toyota Camry start with a redesigned exterior, which includes LED headlights across the range, and functional air ducts, front-side canards, and a rear diffuser on sportier trim levels. Two-tone paint is offered as well.
Inside the cabin, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster is standard, while a 12.3-inch digital cluster is equipped higher in the range. A 10-inch head-up display is optional, while an eight-inch touchscreen and available 12.3-inch touchscreen handle infotainment duties. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are equipped as standard, as is a Qi wireless charging pad. The new Camry also boasts a suite of safety systems, with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert equipped as standard.
Providing the motivation is Toyota’s fifth-generation hybrid system, with a 2.5L four-cylinder equipped for internal combustion duties. Output is routed to the front axle as standard, or all four wheels as optional. Output ranges up to 232 combined horsepower for all-wheel-drive models, a 30-horsepower increase compared to the preceding mechanical all-wheel-drive model. All-wheel drive will be available across the lineup.
As a reminder, the Chevy Malibu previously offered a hybrid powertrain between 2016 and 2019, specifically the 1.8L I4 LKN engine, rated at 182 horsepower and serving up a combined 46 mpg for the 2019 model year.
The Camry’s suspension and braking systems were also reengineered, with Toyota placing an emphasis on balanced handling and comfort.
The 2025 Toyota Camry will hit Toyota dealers next spring.
