Overview

How Much Does a 2021 Toyota Camry Cost?

The 2021 Toyota Camry is available in a wide array of trims and variations. LE and XLE models are the more comfort-oriented trims, while SE and XSE have sportier styling and suspension tuning. The Camry TRD, introduced last year as the first Camry made by Toyota Racing Development, is the sportiest Camry with a track-tuned suspension. The V6 is optional on XLE and XSE models and standard on the TRD. All-wheel drive is optional on all Camry models with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine. The LE ($24,970, plus $995 destination fee) includes 8-way power driver's seat, 60/40-split/folding rear seats, an alarm system and 17-inch alloy wheels. The newly updated standard infotainment system includes a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa integration, and Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required after trial). Also standard is Toyota’s full suite of active safety systems known as Safety Sense 2.5+ that bundles highway-speed adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, enhanced pedestrian detection and automatic high-beam control. The SE ($26,485) has sportier styling and sport-tuned suspension and steering, front sport seats and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with paddle shifters. In terms of feature content, the Camry SE adds 18-in wheels, single-zone automatic climate control and SofTex vinyl upholstery. Both the LE and SE can be equipped with a sunroof, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic alert systems (packaged together), the Convenience package (passive keyless entry and push-button start, an auto-dimming mirror and a universal garage opener) and the Audio package (a 9-in touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, Sirius XM satellite radio, and dual-zone climate control. The SE Nightshade Edition ($27,185) offers the same features as the basic SE model but with black styling elements that include the wheels, door handles, mirrors, window trim, grille and roof-mounted shark-fin antenna. The Camry TRD ($32,185) offers the Camry’s optional V6 engine at a steal, as the other V6-equipped Camry trims cost at least $2,810 more. In the TRD, the V6 is unchanged, putting out the same 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque paired with the same 8-speed automatic it uses in other applications. What the TRD does gain is added structural bracing, a TRD-tuned suspension that drops the ride height by 0.6 inches, bigger brakes and a cat-back exhaust system. Additionally, the TRD Camry gains 19-in wheels that are 3.1 pounds lighter and a half inch wider than those found on the XSE trim. Summer tires are standard — which, it’s worth mentioning, will prove problematic to buyers in cold climates. There’s also a big, obnoxious, love-it-or-hate-it rear wing and additional styling elements. Paddle shifters are included as well. For 2021 the TRD includes blind-spot monitoring. The XSE ($30,4200) builds on the SE trim, while the XLE ($29,870) adds to the LE. Both add full-speed adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, three drive-mode setting modes (Eco, Normal and Sport), an electronic parking brake, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, an 8-way power passenger seat, leather upholstery, rear adjustable headrests, an upgraded backup camera and instrument display, the Convenience package content and three USB ports. The XSE has 19-in wheels, while the XLE has 18-in wheels plus a leather-wrapped version of the LE’s steering wheel. The XLE and XSE also get the Audio Plus package with the new 9-inch touchscreen display. The V6 engine is optional in the Camry XSE ($35,545) and XLE ($34,995) and brings with it a panoramic sunroof, a color head-up display, wireless smartphone charging, and upgraded audio with 9-speaker JBL system. All of these items are also available on the 4-cylinder XSE and XLE. A factory navigation system is optional on XLE and XSE models, as is a head-up display (HUD) that’s standard if you get the V6. If you live where it gets especially hot, you might love the ventilated front seats available in XSE and XLE grades. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) Camry LE and Camry SE start at $26,370 and $27,885 respectively. AWD versions of the Camry XLE and Camry XSE begin at $31,270 and $31,820, respectively. The blacked-out 2021 Toyota Camry Nightshade is available as a front-driver SE model for $28,585 or an AWD SE for $28,585.

Toyota Camry Safety

Is the 2021 Toyota Camry a Safe Car?

The 2021 Camry is the first vehicle to get the automaker’s new Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+. This builds on the prior system and again includes forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and automatic high beams. It adds enhanced pedestrian and bicyclist detection, plus a new intersection assist that can warn of oncoming vehicles or pedestrians in intersections when you’re making a left-hand turn. Additionally, full-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is standard on XLE, XSE and TRD models and has the ability to bring the car down to a stop and resume when traffic flows again. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is also standard on XLE, XSE and TRD models and optional on the LE and SE. Furthermore, the ability to automatically brake while in reverse to prevent a collision is optional on XLE and XSE models. Also standard is a rear-seat reminder to help prevent leaving a child in the car. The 2021 Camry is yet to be crash-tested, but the 2020 model earned 5-star ratings from the government. The non-profit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also gave the Camry perfect marks in all crashworthiness, crash avoidance, headlight and child seat anchor categories, earning it a coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation — the Institute’s top honor.

Competition

2021 Toyota Camry vs the competition

2020 Honda Accord — The Camry and the Accord have long been the two top-selling midsize sedans in America. While the Camry uses naturally aspirated engines, the Accord uses turbos. 2020 Subaru Legacy — For those seeking a more conservatively styled midsize sedan (or one with standard AWD), the Legacy is a good place to turn. Its value, safety ratings and reliability are all strong. It’s also all-new for 2020. 2020 Hyundai Sonata – The Sonata offers some of the most cutting-edge technology available in a modern sedan. Sleek looks are part of this complete package, too. Used Toyota Avalon — For about the same price as a new Camry or less, you can get its larger, plusher, V6-packing sibling.
