When it comes to performance models, TRD is the brand Toyota enthusiasts are looking for. For 2020, the Camry TRD offers a completely different model then those for retired people. It is more like a ninja warrior under a poncho.
The Camry TRD can hardly be distinguished from other Camry models, but there are some subtle visual details that will give you a hint about it. First, it has an aero body-kit with a black front grill, sport mesh insert and black exterior badges.
Colors offered are Supersonic Red, Windchill Pearl, Celestial Silver Metallic – in two tones and a Midnight Black Metallic. The dual exhaust tips are also polished, to complete the outside sporty look. Such an aggressive look couldn't be completed without a set of 19 inch wheels with 235/40R19 Bridgestone Potenza tires.
Under the hood there is a 3.5 liter V6 engine that offers 301 HP, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shifters. Since it is intended for a sportier driving experience, Camry TRD has an improved chassis with stiffer coil springs. Thus, the front-wheel-drive car is stiffer with 44% on the front suspension and 67% in the rear. As any other TRD vehicle, the Camry TRD was specially tuned by Toyota Race Development Team on the Toyota Arizona proving grounds and on the TMC Higashi-Fuji Proving Ground in Japan.
