Posted 4/5/06 More Info/News 06 Camry Hybrid.....

***Toyota's newest hybrid***

Camry's optional Hybrid Synergy Drive® has both gas and electric power sources that effortlessly work together to produce a combined 192 horsepower -- more than Camry's current generation three-liter V6 engine. As with other Toyota hybrid-powered vehicles, the system varies power between gas and electric or both, as needed.

The Camry Hybrid has a 2.4 liter, four-cylinder 2AZ-FXE Atkinson-cycle engine, which generates 147 horsepower and is coupled to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. It also has two, specially developed electric motors that produce a combined 45 horsepower and an ultra-small inverter with a compact designed battery. Together, these elements deliver smooth, quiet power without the obvious shifting that goes with many conventional drive systems.

The Camry Hybrid is expected to be certified as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV), one of just six vehicles in the United States to meet this strict standard at launch.

Where's the magic?
Like the two generations of Toyota Prius and the Toyota Highlander Hybrid that preceded it, the Camry Hybrid gains its spectacular efficiency from several sources. One is the Atkinson-cycle engine, in which a small sacrifice in compression ratio is swapped for a greater fuel expansion ratio, longer power stroke and less waste heat, resulting in greater fuel efficiency.

The system also gains efficiency from its permanent magnet synchronous motor, which develops 199 lb.-ft. of torque from zero to 1500 rpm; from a nickel-metal hydride battery that, via the power inverter, can produce up to 650 volts of power; and from a computer system that measures demand and applies power from the gas engine or electric motor or both, as needed.


In addition, Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive takes advantage of regenerative braking, in which the continued rotation of the electric motor during braking, deceleration or coasting generates power that's stored in the battery. Some explain it this way: a conventionally powered car rolling down a hill still has its engine idling, still using gasoline. The Camry Hybrid (and all Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive vehicles rolling along in the next lane), not only has its engine shut down; its system is storing power to provide a boost for the return trip up the hill.

Safety and peace of mind
The Camry Hybrid was not only designed to help protect the environment, but also its passengers. All Camrys come standard with driver and passenger advanced airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag. Stopping power is provided by front and rear disc Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) with Brake Assist. A new vehicle motion control system called Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management [3] (VDIM) integrates operation of the ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), and Electronic Power Steering (EPS) to help control loss of traction during a turn. When a series of sensors detect a loss of traction, the system uses a combination of individual wheel braking, throttle activation and steering assistance to help the driver keep the vehicle on track. The standard Tire Pressure Monitor System [4] has sensors that constantly monitor the tires in case of a sudden pressure loss. When the sensors detect critically low tire pressure, the driver will be alerted through an indicator light in the dashboard. The Camry Hybrid also comes standard with daytime running lights designed to increase your visibility to other motorists.

All Toyotas receive warranty coverage for 3-year/36,000-mile Comprehensive, 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain and 5-year/unlimited-mileage Corrosion Perforation. And to add peace of mind to those worried about hybrid component reliability, a reassuring 8-year/100,000-mile Hybrid-related Component Coverage is provided. In states that adopt California emission requirements, the Hybrid-related Component Coverage is for 15-years/150,000-miles, with the exception of the battery. The battery is warranted for 10-years/150,000 miles [5].

Coming to dealers this spring
The 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid has a long list of standard features, including 16" alloy wheels; dual heated power outside mirrors; eight-way power driver's seat; power windows and doorlocks; auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass; a tilt and telescopic steering wheel with audio, BluetoothTM hands-free calling, and climate controls; Homelink®; a 440-watt, eight-speaker digital audio system with premium AM/FM/six-disc CD changer with MP3/WMA playback capability; and Smart Key System with push button start. Additionally, the Camry Hybrid is equipped with an "ECO" button that's designed to reduce energy use by the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and under certain conditions can help improve fuel economy.

The Camry Hybrid is being assembled in Japan and later this year, at Toyota's state-of-the-art facility in Georgetown, Kentucky. Making it Toyota's first hybrid model assembled in the United States. The all-new 2007 Camry arrives at dealer showrooms in March, with the Camry Hybrid to follow later this spring. End of April to May 2006 !

Bad News for all my 06 Prius waiters but good news for the CH waiters.

The news came to me by Toyota dealer bulletin today. The letter is "vague
and "murky in their wording but this is how I interpreted it. Though my personal understanding and opinion.

06 Prius facing slow down or scale down. Toyota is launching the all important and new segment targeted Mid Size Sedan the 07 Camry Hybrid this spring. However, the suppliers can not cope with the extra hybrid capacity, read=Hybrid components and peripheral ( belonging to Prius ) then share with the new spring launch 07 CH.

Therefore, it is going to share the parts allotment from the ever increasing and sought after the popular Prius. The launch of the 07 CH will jeopardise the increased volume and demand of the 06 Prius.

I did wish the 07 CH launch in this spring but by launching the same will dampen the momentum gained on the 06 Prius sales. Now I see the reality that and fear for my Prius customers and they will suffer the consequence of delay in receiving their ordered Prius delivery !

A really bad news indeed, it sucks ! Now I'm facing the furors and agony
from my order bank, my customers. it is a national apocalypse ....

What you all think about this..

To: All San Francisco Region Toyota Dealers

Date: January 18, 2006

Subject: Prius Availability

The Prius has been an incredible success for Toyota as a corporation and for you our dealers. It has been one of the top turning vehicles in our line-up for several years with sales to availability averaging above 90% for all of ’05. When a vehicle has this kind of success any variance in supply becomes immediately noticeable. It is for this reason that I am relaying our latest supply information regarding this fantastic vehicle.

Due to the _start up_ of the _Camry Hybrid_ during the first quarter, Prius production will be constrained through _March_. We are expecting wholesales of approximately 2550 units during the 1st quarter of ’06. We received 3631 wholesales during the 1st quarter of ’05. This is a reduction of 29.7%. Regular wholesale levels will_ resume_ during _April_ and are projected to progressively increase throughout the year with peak volumes in October and November. We are estimating total wholesales for ’06 to slightly exceed ’05 by year end.

As a result of this reduction in _1st quarter_ wholesales, you will see lower than normal allocation volumes of Prius until at least the 3-2 allocation in _mid-March_. Please be assured that the Region is doing everything possible to maximize your Prius availability. We appreciate your patience during this time.

If you have any questions, please contact your District Manager.

Sincerely,


xxxxxxx
Region Vehicle Supply Manager

07 Camry Hybrid amendment info released 1/18/06

Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., unveiled the all-new 2007 Camry and
Camry Hybrid at a press conference today at the 2006 North American
International Auto Show (NAIAS).
In the 23 years since it was introduced as a 1983 model, Camry has
evolved to the quintessential American family sedan with iconic status.

The Toyota Camry, the best-selling car in America four years running
and eight of the past nine years, is completely new for 2007 as Toyota
engineers and designers follow a strategy that refuses to take
continued success for granted. Toyota set out to redefine the new
Camry. To accomplish this, Toyota chose to expand the very definition
of Camry and in the process create a new benchmark for sedans.
Designers rethought every aspect of the Camry, from its chassis to its
body, interior, accessories and drivetrain. The result is a world-class
sedan that not only redefines global standards for comfort, performance
and intelligent design, but also is available, for the first time, with
Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive.

"With the new 2007 Camry, Toyota once again raised the bar with the
family sedan," said Don Esmond, senior vice president, automotive
operations, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. "Camry's reputation as the
gold standard was developed over more than 20 years of refining this
excellent package and this new Camry continues that reputation."

As designers and engineers refined their goals, they focused on trading
what some owners felt was a conservative image for a more stylish,
athletic, modern image. At the same time, they sought new standards of
performance for both standard and hybrid models.

The challenge was to accomplish a thorough redesign without sacrificing
traditional Camry qualities, including roomy interior, comfortable
ride, low noise levels, and class-leading value. Toyota designers
accomplished those goals by rethinking every aspect of the Camry, with
special attention paid to improving driving dynamics, comfort, low
noise and
As interested as drivers will be in Camry's enhanced performance,
refinement, value and style, they'll also be interested in its
fuel-economy numbers. The standard four-cylinder CE model has
EPA-estimated city/highway fuel economy ratings of 24/34. Camrys
equipped with V6 engines have EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 22
mpg city/31 mpg highway, while the Camry hybrid has fuel economy
ratings of 43 mpg city/37 mpg highway.

Exterior
An all-new exterior design provides the 2007 Camry with a visual impact
that signals a departure from the upright style of its predecessor.
This new Camry shape is athletic and modern, with a long,
high-visibility cabin set on a horizontal underbody with strong,
rounded planes and elongated structures. The wheelbase now is longer
than before, and track is wider, with the wheels pushed toward the
extremes of each of the car's four corners.

Under the flowing lines of this sheetmetal is a body structure designed
to absorb collision-impact forces and help minimize impact deformation
to the passenger cabin. High-strength steel is used for B-pillar and
rocker panel reinforcement to help manage overall body deformation in
the event of a side collision.

Inside the passenger cabin, even the seat frames are designed to
receive and help absorb side collision loads and a cross member in the
center of the floor is used for the same reason.

The chassis was made more rigid by connecting the cowl front to the
upper suspension towers. Additionally, the Camry's hood, fenders and
their brackets, and cowl are designed to crumple and absorb impact
energy.
As a final design touch, these same panels feature an eye-appealing
appearance. The new Camry's front fascia, defined by hood, grille,
bumper and logo, is dignified and innovative and is completed by
headlights that incorporate a projector-type low beam that offer both
beauty and high performance.

Chassis
While designers optimized the Camry's visual image, they also paid
attention to generating a sense of excitement in the driving experience
without sacrificing ride quality. To do that, they increased wheelbase
(109.3 in., up from 107.1 in.) but maintained the same overall length,
with a shortened rear overhang. Even with this lengthened wheelbase,
engineers delivered a reduced turning radius.

Setting the stage for improved grip and driver feel are upgraded wheels
for all four Camry grades. Gone are the 15-inch wheels previously
standard on the LE. For 2007, the CE, LE, XLE and Camry Hybrid will
ride on 16-inch wheels of either steel or aluminum, while the sporty SE
gets unique aluminum 17-inch wheels with six spokes. These are
optimized to help ensure brake-heat dissipation.

Thanks to the use of enlarged wheels, brake discs also were enlarged
for improved feel and stopping power. Up front, ventilated 11.65-inch
discs are used, with solid 11.06-inch discs at the rear. A new brake
pad is adopted that provides 10 percent higher coefficient of friction
for increased stopping power over the previous model. Finally, Toyota's
Brake Assist, an electronic function that senses an emergency stop and
applies increased braking power once the driver touches the brake
pedal, is standard.

Front suspension is via MacPherson struts. At the rear, a dual-link
strut system helps provide an optimal balance between smooth ride and
secure handling. To help improve the Camry's handling and driver feel,
all lower control arms were lengthened, all spring, shock-absorber and
antiroll-bar values, and all suspension geometries, were rethought and
recalibrated.

The completely revised chassis was lab-tested using specs simulating
the road surfaces in every country in which Camry is sold. Then, to add
real-world verification to their new design, engineers road-tested the
new suspension design for more than 60,000 miles in more than a dozen
countries.

Grades
An essential and primary goal was to ensure that even the least
expensive Camry is equipped with a comprehensive list of features to
enhance its comfort, convenience and value.

The CE gets an impressive list of standard features, including halogen
headlamps with an automatic on/off feature, a tilt and telescopic
steering wheel, a six-speaker 160-watt digital AM/FM/CD audio system
with an auxiliary audio jack and a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with a
five-speed manual transmission. It also comes with 16-inch wheels, a
full complement of seven airbags, a vehicle immobilizer and four-wheel
disc brakes.

The Camry LE adds to this package a long list of additional features,
including an in-key remote keyless entry and eight-way-adjustable power
driver's seat. A V6 engine with dual exhausts is also available.

Toyota's decision to distance the sporty Camry SE from the other grades
had a significant effect upon the chassis specifications being
developed for the new Camry SE. As was the case in previous years, LE
and XLE use basically the same chassis specs while the SE uses springs,
antiroll bars, shocks and bushings with firmer, sportier values than
those used in the other two grades.

But for 2007, there are other differences, as well. The SE has a
standard full body kit that positions the car 0.4-inches (10mm) lower
than other Camry grades. In addition, a V-shaped brace is added to the
SE's body between trunk and cabin and stabilizing braces were added to
the underbody to increase the body's torsional rigidity. Finally, to
make the SE more appealing to buyers seeking a more dynamic driving
experience, the SE delivers performance enhanced by underbody
aerodynamics borrowed from Toyota's experience in Formula One.

Tuning the SE chassis involved making the underbody as flat as possible
to smooth the airflow under the car, and also to increase the speed of
the airflow. Engineers also carefully adjusted the balance between
front and rear downforce. The result is exceptional stability at
elevated speeds.

Features standard on the SE include sporty 17-inch aluminum wheels, its
own distinct black, honeycomb-style grille, ground effects body
enhancement, smoked tint halogen headlamps, unique sport-trimmed
interior in dark charcoal or medium gray with a leather-wrapped,
three-spoke steering wheel and amber-colored optitron gauges.

The XLE's list of standard features includes an upgraded dual-zone
automatic climate controlled system with steering-wheel controls, a
premium 440-watt JBL audio system with Bluetooth™ technology for
hands-free calling, wood-style trim, moonroof, rear reclining seats,
fog lamps and 16-inch aluminum wheels. Four-cylinder models are
equipped with standard special seat fabric designed to be gentle on the
skin, while V6 models feature standard leather-trimmed seats.

Options available on select Camry grades include a tilt/slide moonroof,
heated seats, voice-command DVD navigation system, leather-trimmed
seating, rear spoiler, Vehicle Stability Control and a Smart Entry and
Smart Start system with push-button start that allows drivers to lock,
unlock, or start the car just by carrying the Smart Key on his/her
person.

Interior
One of the primary goals the new Camry's design team set for itself was
to come up with a stylish design and a roomy, comfortable interior.

The team turned its attention to maximizing interior space - in
particular, fore-and-aft space - without significantly enlarging the
Camry's exterior. It started by pushing the cowl, the bottom of the
car's windshield, forward for an increased sense of openness and room
in the Camry's passenger cabin.

Redesigned front seats also played a role in adding a feeling of
spaciousness to the Camry cabin. Additionally, seat-slide length was
increased to accommodate comfortable driving positions for larger
drivers and passengers. Manual seats have a range of 10 inches, and
power seats offer 10.2 inches of travel.

As a thoughtful detail, an assist plate - a place on which to position
one's hand for support while entering and exiting the vehicle- was
added to the outboard side of each front power seat-bottom surround
panel.

In an expansion of a seat technology first seen on the Toyota Prius,
the Camry's seats use Toyota's Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) seat
design. That means that each seat is designed to help manage whiplash
injury.

The 2007 Camry's door trim was redesigned for improved ease of use of
the door handles and switches. Designers maximized the size of the
space around the door handles for easier access.

Designers also paid careful attention to improving the comfort
available to rear-seat passengers. Footwell space for the rear seat was
enlarged, and additional rear seat legroom was provided. Available rear
legroom now measures 38.3 inches, up from 37.8 inches in the previous
generation Camry. To enhance comfort for rear-seat XLE passengers,
seatbacks now recline eight degrees from their standard position.
Alternately, a 60/40 non-reclining fold-down rear seat is standard on
CE and LE grades. Rear-seat passengers also get dedicated personal
reading lamps on moonroof-equipped Camrys.

So complete was the rethink of the Camry's interior that even the seat
fabric was redesigned. Used exclusively on the top-of-the-line XLE
four-cylinder model, the new standard fabric is treated by the Fraichir
process. In this process, fabric is coated with a naturally occurring
component called Sericin, which is extracted from silkworm cocoons and
refined. This substance is used because it contains a natural
moisturizing component.

Additionally, in their search for increased space, designers did not
overlook the Camry's trunk. With the 60/40 fold down rear seats, it
offers 15 cubic feet of luggage space. With the reclining or fixed rear
seats, it delivers 14.5 cubic feet of storage space. It is equipped
with a grocery hook, a utility box and a luggage net (on XLE) for added
convenience.

The revised interior involved a complete redesign of every detail of
the dash and console, in part to avoid the impression that the dash
crowds the Camry's passengers, and also to improve instrument
visibility and ease use of all controls.

The dash itself uses a two-level configuration with the upper level
moved toward the front of the vehicle to improve the impression of
roominess.

In the instrument panel, instruments are larger than before, with
larger lettering and longer needles. The speedometer is marked in
five-mph increments, a step that is important to American buyers
because speed limits of 55, 65 and 75 mph are very common.
Additionally, the odometer and trip meters are illuminated at all times
to improve daytime visibility.

Special attention was paid to the audio/HVAC control panel. The control
panel features switches that are slimmer and neater than previously,
with larger lettering, and with surface luminescence for easier use at
night.

A standard multi-information display offers outside temperature
readings, possible cruising range, average speed, average fuel
consumption and trip odometer.

Designers built in many storage spaces around the front-passenger area,
including console side-pockets, marking the first use of this storage
option in a sedan. Storage options also include a large front console
box equipped with an accessory power socket and an auxiliary audio jack
- this box is big enough to store eight CD jewel cases. Other storage
areas include an accessory box behind the shift lever containing
another accessory power socket, a 354 square inch rear-console box with
a card holder and a movable tray, and, adjacent to the shift lever,
holders for two large cups.

A new HVAC system, standard on the XLE and Hybrid, incorporates
automatic climate-control with separate left and right zones. This new
system uses Plasmacluster ionizer technology to help reduce airborne
mold spores, microbes, fungi, odors, germs and bacteria inside the
passenger cabin. The plasmacluster ionizer does this by artificially
creating positive and negative ions that seek out and surround harmful
airborne substances.

Engines and Transmissions
The 2AZ-FE engine, standard across the Camry grade lineup, is based on
the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine from last year, but is substantially
upgraded. This redesign employs optimized intake and exhaust systems,
as well as strategies that reduce internal friction and enhance
engine-block/crankcase rigidity. The result is improved power output
with exceptional fuel economy and reduced noise and vibration levels.

This engine is based on bore/stroke dimensions of 3.48 x 3.78 inches
(88.5 x 96mm) for a displacement of 2,362 cc, or 144.1 ci, and develops
158 SAE horsepower. During their revision of the existing engine,
engineers boosted the compression ratio slightly to 9.8:1, altered the
cam profile and paid particular attention to reducing friction through
strategies such as reducing the tension of the piston rings while
increasing their tensile strength. Finally, they reduced piston weight,
optimized the balance shaft, improved sound insulation performance of
the engine cover and improved the engine mounts.
With this engine, Camry buyers have the choice of either five-speed
manual or electronically operated five-speed automatic transmission.

For those looking for more power, the new 2GR-FE engine - a 24-valve,
DOHC 3.5L V6 - is available in the LE, SE and XLE. This engine is
designed to deliver up to 40 percent better acceleration over the 2006
model year Camry 3.3-liter V6. The V6 is based on bore/stroke
measurements of 3.70 x 3.27 inches (94.0 x 83.0 mm) for a displacement
of 210.9 ci, or 3,459cc, and uses a compression ratio of 10.8:1 to
generate 268 SAE horsepower.

The dual camshafts, which are chain-driven, employ Dual Variable Valve
Timing with intelligence (Dual VVT-i) for optimal cam timing - and
therefore maximum power production - at all RPM levels.

Engineers improved airflow through every element of the engine's intake
tract. This includes improving air-cleaner shapes, intake ducts and the
intake manifold and cylinder head intake ports. In addition, valve
openings were enlarged and exhaust pressure loss was reduced from the
exhaust manifold to the muffler. Engineers modified the shape of the
Camry's taper-squish combustion chambers to make maximum use of that
air. And they provided exhaust manifolds that incorporate catalytic
converters for greater efficiency.

Harnessing this engine's output is an all-new six-speed automatic
transmission that uses 21 percent fewer parts than the conventional
five-speed automatic transmission it replaces. This new transmission,
which can be shifted sequentially, relies upon a newly developed gear
train that uses a Ravigneaux-type compound planetary gear for reduced
size, weight and friction.

This new transmission also uses a quick-response, low-friction clutch
pack for enhanced fuel economy; an ultra-flat, low-inertia torque
converter for high transmission efficiency; a set of high-response,
low-slip clutch packs and new electronic and hydraulic control systems
that incorporate an intelligent shift control that learns driver's
driving style and selects gears based on that style.

As a result of this development, transmission kickdown response was cut
to 0.5 seconds, more than twice as fast as the response of the
transmission this new one replaces.

Audio
The standard audio system in the 2007 Camry incorporates an
AM/FM/six-disc in-dash CD changer with six speakers and uses a
four-channel digital amplifier that produces 160 watts of output.
Additionally, all audio systems are capable for reading CDs with MP3
files.

The premium JBL system, standard in the XLE and Hybrid, offers
AM/FM/six-disc in-dash CD changer with eight speakers and an
eight-channel, 440-watt digital amplifier for low distortion and
faithful reproduction of a wide range of musical types and styles. When
a navigation system is added, the premium JBL system integrates that
system and comes with a four-disc in-dash CD changer. The JBL audio
system includes Bluetooth® technology for hands-free telephone
compatibility.

Safety
All 2007 Camrys come equipped with an Antilock Brake System (ABS),
Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist. Vehicle
Stability Control (VSC) with traction control, an electronic system
that controls engine output and brake application on individual wheels
to help control loss of traction in turns, is available as an option.
Dual-stage advanced SRS airbags are standard on all Camry models.
Standard seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags help
provide coverage for the length of the passenger compartment. A
driver's knee airbag also is standard.

Camry Hybrid
Toyota extends its hybrid leadership by making its exclusive Hybrid
Synergy Drive available in the 2007 Camry. Hybrid Synergy Drive
consists of dual gas and electric power sources that are complementary
and produce a combined 192 horsepower. This system varies power between
gas and electric, or both, as needed.

The first half of this system consists of the 2.4L four-cylinder
2AZ-FXE Atkinson-cycle engine, which generates 147 hp and is coupled to
a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The second half of the
Hybrid Synergy Drive equation consists of a small, specially developed
electric drive motor that produces 45 horsepower, an ultra-small
inverter with a specially designed compact battery and a transaxle to
provide the economy and seamless performance hybrid drivers seek.

In addition to its groundbreaking Hybrid Synergy Drive, Camry Hybrid
comes with a long list of standard features. These include a
tire-pressure monitoring system, halogen headlamps with automatic
on/off, a premium JBL audio system with an auxiliary audio jack and
Bluetooth® technology, cruise control, a tilt and telescopic steering
wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control heating and air
conditioning, an eight-way-adjustable power driver's seat, a 60/40
split fold-down rear seat, 16-inch aluminum wheels, heated outside
rear-view mirrors and much more.

Additionally, the Camry Hybrid is equipped with an "ECO" button that
limits energy consumption by the HVAC system and under certain
conditions can help improve fuel economy.

Because there are situations in daily driving in which the gas engine
in a Toyota hybrid is completely shut down, air-conditioning and
power-steering systems are driven electrically, rather than by the
engine. This ensures these features will continue to operate, whatever
the status of the Camry Hybrid's drive system.

Finally, special attention was paid to the vehicle underbody with the
use of wheel spats and underbelly pans resulting in a low coefficient
of aerodynamic drag (Cd) of 0.27, which helps increase fuel economy.

Warranty
The 2007 Camry and Camry Hybrid are covered by Toyota's
36-month/36,000-mile basic new-vehicle warranty that applies to all
components other than normal wear and maintenance items. Additional
60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and corrosion
perforation with no mileage limitation.

The Camry Hybrid also has an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty that
covers the hybrid-related components, including the HV battery,
battery control module, hybrid control module, and inverter with
converter.

Default 07 CH the Camry hybrid

More 07 Camty Hybrid info !


America's best-selling car is redesigned for 2007, getting new styling, more power and
features, and, for the first time, a gas/electric hybrid model. Camry retains the same
overall length as the 2002-2006 version, but adds 2.2 inches to wheelbase and cuts
height by nearly an inch. Base-model curb weight is up some 175 lb. New features include
standard instead of optional curtain side airbags. The line consists of a price-leader CE
trim level, volume LE, sporty SE, and luxury XLE. All come with a 158-hp 2.4-liter 4-cyl
engine and a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automtic [sic]. LE, SE, and XLE
also offer V6 versions with a 268-hp 3.5-liter and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Camry's previous most-powerful V6 had 210 hp and used a 5-speed automatic.
Both '07 automatics include a manual shift gate. The Hybrid teams a special 2.4-liter 4-cyl
gas engine with a battery-powered electric motor for 192 net hp. It teams with a
continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) providing near-infinite drive ratios.
Like Toyota's smaller Prius hybrid, Camry's automatically drives on either or both power
sources, depending on conditions, and requires no plug-in charging. Antilock 4-wheel
disc brakes are standard for all models. So are front torso side airbags, head-protecting
curtain side airbags, and, for the first time, a driver's knee airbag.

The Hybrid adds antiskid/traction control that's available for other models. SEs come with
17-inch wheels, the other models with 16s. SEs also have a firmer suspension, and
specific trim inside and out. The Hybrid also has unique interior and exterior trim. A split
folding rear seat is standard except on SE and Hybrid, which have a fixed seat with center
pass-through. Leather upholstery is included on the V6 XLE, available for the 4-cyl XLE
and the SE. A navigation system with CD changer and wireless cell-phone link is optional
for SE and XLE, as are heated seats. A new-to-Camry keyless-entry/starting system is
included on Hybrid and available for V6 XLE.

It is interesting to note that the automatic transmissions are now 5 and 6 speeds (except
for the hybrid which gets a continuously variable transmission, like the Prius). Until
recently, most automatics had fewer gears than manual transmissions, but trying to
achieve higher fuel economy has pushed automakers to add extra gears.

Also, it seems that - if this information is reliable - Toyota has decided to position the
Camry hybrid between the 4 cylinders and V6 versions when it comes to power (158hp for
the 4-cyl, 192hp for the hybrid and 268hp for the V6). The thinking probably is that a
good portion of mainstream buyers will consider the extra power a good reason to pay a
bit more for the gas-electric drivetrain.

In fact, since the current generation's Camry has a V6 that generates at most 210hp, the
next generation hybrid's 192hp can almost be sold as: "V6 power, better than 4-cylinder
gas mileage."

Default Camry Hybrid MPG

Rickey,

Any idea on what the MPG rating will be on the Camry Hybrid. I'm hoping for mid 30's or higher. What would you guess?

I do not know the expected mileage at this point but today, went to the 06
Re-designed Rav4 Cross-over compact sport utility seminar/launch to University of Toyota session and spoke to few Toyota officials privately:
I'm wondering how big is the 07 CH Camry Hybrid's fuel tank is but, listen to this: 650 miles on a full tank for the up coming 07 CH ! The 06 Camry ICE version's tank capacity says : 18.5 gallons so if we assume that 07 CH will deploy the same size of tank. Gasp ! 35 mpg plus ! that will be a welcome benefit for the CH buyers ! Mid-Size, no almost a full size vehicle a-la- Avalon its dimension are shorter but the inner space will beat the next MB or Bimmers or even the Lexus LS sedan ...... So called the, Large premium sedans... Stay tuned !

Good things will come to those whom waits !

Taking reservation orders now at MSRP no more no less !

Hi hybrid Maven-G.H.

The V6 on the CH or the Camry Hybrid won't be necessary, due to its buyers demographics and the weight of the Camry will not warrant the V6
displacement. Toyota wants the new "CH" to be powerful-enough but fuel miser a-la-Priii . 200 HP combined for the CH and its estimate fuel MPG of high mid-35 mpg is what Toyota wants. As for comparison: The ICE 4 cylinder camry is more than powerful enough already but with the HSD integration that will be more than adequate power plus quicker get up and go !

I'm borrowing this post from Yahoo-Prius Groups posted by Mr Wayne Brown. I hope he won't mind hyjacking his post and my personal input for you all to read and share in your views !

Please let me know if his figure for the upcoming 07 Camry Hybrids fuel mileage is close to a real MPG ? I'm vey interested to know !

Hi All,

I am going to stick my neck out a little bit & offer some possible
MPG figures for the new Camry Hybrid with a side by side comparison
with the 04-06 Prius. Please keep in mind that these figures are
based upon the Camry Hybrid's 2.4 liter ICE being of the Atkinson
design. The 192 horsepower Camry Hybrid performance should be very
closely to slightly better than the 04-06 Prius.

The table below is based upon the following variables:

Temperature: 88 ºF
Elevation: 400 ft above sea level
Humidity: 29.93 in Hg
Load: 200 lbs.
AC: YES
Climate Control: 75 ºF
Wind: 0
Fuel: 114,500 BTU per US Gal. (Summer Blend)
Road Rolling Resistance: .001144 (smooth asphalt)
Tire Rolling Resistance: .0064 (Integrity @ 44/42 f/r)
Coefficient of Drag: .26-Prius & .28-Camry
Frontal Area: 2.16m^2-Prius & 2.28m^2-Camry

MPH....04-06PRIUS.....07CAMRY
70........50.94........42.41
65........54.42........44.99
60........58.62........48.10
55........61.79........50.34
50........65.52........52.98
45........68.14........54.73
40........83.80........66.91

The 2007 Camry Hybrid is going to be a beautiful, comfortable &
spacious vehicle. I know the above MPG figures are completely possible, lets hope that this is close to what we get.
Best Regards,

Wayne Brown -

Hello Wayne Brown.

Very optimistic figure but wishful-thinking ! I had the figure
for the
upcoming CH Camry Hybrid at 36~37 MPG ?
My guess base comes from Toyota guys that I spoke to, If same
fuel tank
dimension used for the 07 HH at 18.5 gallons
capacity they were saying cruise-range of 670 plus miles per tank.

Hi C. Ricky Hirose,

Your figures are only 2-3 MPG over what the current Camry gets now;
even the Highlander Hybrid gets 10-11 more MPG than a normal
Highlander & most of us are quite disappointed with that low level
of improvement. If the Camry can only get 10 more MPG than the
current model, we are looking at 43-44 MPG. I think it will do a
little better than that.

Did you notice that the Highlander Hybrid has a smaller fuel tank
that the regular Highlander. I have heard the Camry Hybrid too has a
smaller tank than the regular Camry. It is very likely that the 2.4
Liter ICE is the Atkinson design that has been in use in the Estima
Hybrid for the last 5 years in Japan. The Estima gets 40-44 MPG &
that is in the old THS format. The 07 Camry Hybrid 2.4 liter ICE is
being upgraded from the THS to the HSD or THSII format & should be
even more efficient.

If you take another look at my MPG table below, you will see that
the 04-06 PRIUS EPA combined figure of 55 MPG is very close to what
I show on the 65 MPH line. Notice that the Camry Hybrid simulation
figures 44.9 MPG on that line & I believe the odds are pretty good
that the Camry Hybrid will fall pretty solidly in that range.

Not so much `wishful thinking' here Mr. Hirose as finding the
specifications for the 2007 Camry Hybrid, plugging them into the
simulator & publishing the numbers.

Best Regards,

Hello Wayne.

Yes, the V6 application HSD on the "HH" mpg is around 28 mpg in real world driving.
A very small increase in mpg vs the ICE V6 Highlanders. Toyota Motor Corp recently
has announced that the V6 or V8 HSD application power units is _Not_ just about
higher mpg. Toyota feels and sees that others, soon to be interested "Demographics"
buyers outside of the Prius-Genre. Will be looking more towards the performance of
get up and go Power and Torque of next generations of HSD powered vehicles. A good indication
is that, The 07 Big sedans from "Lexus" HSD will be "faster and powerful" than the ICE counterparts.
and not-so-much looking at the MPG figures that Prius owning or soon to own buyer Demographics.
The 07 Camry Hybrid will bring the best of both worlds, Ample seating with room to spare A-la- Avalons.
Also will be quiter and "smoother" than the current ICE versions of the Camry-Avalons. The 3-4 mpg only better
than the current 4 cylinder Camry as you put it is not correct. I have driven a 4 cylinder Camry as company
vehicle and I could only measure City-Highway "Real" tank to empty travel range of 480-490 miles. I do not
drive in order to maximise MPG I drive at 75-80 mph when traffic flow permits. Now, I do not know the "Tank
capacity of the upcoming CH or the Camry Hybrids, whether Toyota is going to use the current Camry existing
Fuel Tank at 18.5 Gallons Capacity or they are going to use the HH's 17.2 Gallons tank or perhaps the much smaller
Prius 11.9 capacity ones .... I do not want to be overly optimistic and get dissapointed later ! I only stated that I heard
"Cruise-Range" of the 07 CH per Tankfull is 650 miles plus. Although, expect much better than what current information
knownst to me. The Entry-level Mid-Size Prius is one thing but the Full size up coming CH will be another.

Oh what a feeling to be able to market more Toyota Hybrids to the masses !

Hello Mr Hybrid Ambassador,
The Prius is too small for me, how soon will you have the Hybrid CH?
