2012 Toyota Camry review from Toyota of the Black Hills

by Holly Johnson

Who doesn’t want to start the New Year off with a bang?  Why not welcome the New Year with a bang and purchase a new vehicle and not just any vehicle but the 2012 Toyota Camry to be exact.  With more aggressive details improving the front grill and side profile as well as rougher lines encompassing the Camry giving it a smoother look.  The 2012 Camrys improved sporty handling is an effort to entice buyers who want to write off  Toyota. Those buyers don’t know what their missing until they give the luxury sedan a chance to see how it handles for themselves.

The 2012 Camry isn’t too much different from the 2011 model which isn’t a bad thing when you look at how far the Camry has come over the years.  Improvements on the 2012 Camry that differ from the 2011 model is an improved engine.  A powerful 2.5 liter four-cylinder as well as a 268-horsepower 3.5 liter V6.  Both engines are also joined by a six-speed automatic transmission to deliver better fuel economy which makes for fewer visits to your local pump.  The four-cylinder returns an EPA estimated 35 highway mpg while the V6 gives it a little bit more of a push with nearly 100 more horsepower achieving 30 mpg on the highway.

As well as updates to the engine suspension improvements have also been made to make driving the Camry a more enjoyable experience with better handling dynamics.  Paddle shifters on the SE model, offer manual control of the automatic transmission and rev matched downshifts.  Not saying that the 2012 Camry isn’t sporty but it does offer more of a rock-solid legacy of luxury & a comfortable ride quality.  With the coming year why not go to your local Toyota dealership and drive the new 2012 Camry?  You will be welcomed by a friendly staff who will be happy to let you test drive the Camry so you can see for yourself what you’ve been missing.
