Information became available on the all-wheel drive Toyota CamryFebruary 19, 2020
The information that Toyota Camry will acquire a unique all-wheel drive variation for North America appeared back in 2019. Now announced previously unknown details about the new model, distinguishing it from a simple front-wheel drive sedan.
To equip Camry with an all-wheel drive system for the first time, specialists from the Japanese brand were forced to “transform” the TNGA platform using elements from the RAV4 and Highlander crosses.
The four-wheel drive itself, also known as Dynamic Torque Control AWD, was borrowed from the Toyota RAV4 sedan. This system has a unique functioning algorithm, which has proved to be excellent on different types of roads. The system transfers 100% of the torque to the front wheels, however, if necessary, it can give up to 50% of the output to the rear axle.
The all-wheel drive system is optionally available for Camry in trim levels having a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The differences of such a sedan will be a pair of forked pipes and a characteristic nameplate “AWD” on the luggage compartment lid. The car will consume 9.4 liters in the city, 6.9 liters on the highway and 8.1 liters in the combined cycle.
During the modernization, the Camry AWD model acquired a “razdatka” and a rear suspension, which has a differential from the RAV4 cross, and a driveshaft from Highlander. All this made the sedan heavier by 75 kg.
In the American market, the all-wheel drive Camry model will appear this spring.
