The 2022 Toyota Camry shares a nameplate with the generations that came before, but its extroverted styling and performance model make it almost unrecognizable. That's because the current Camry is arguably the most compelling it has ever been. The standard, albeit humdrum, four-cylinder engine is economical and fine for daily driver duty. The hybrid version maximizes fuel economy, even if its acceleration is uneventful. That leaves the lusty 301-hp V-6 to pick up the pace, especially on the sport-tuned Camry TRD, which is actually entertaining to drive. While rivals like the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata are more refined and satisfying overall, the Toyota has its own desirable qualities, such as a full suite of standard active safety features and goodwill generated by decades of proven reliability.
What's New for 2022?
The only news for the 2022 Camry lineup relates to how its myriad models look. Unlike before, the Nightshade appearance package (which adds black exterior trim, black wheels, etc.) can now be had on the hybrid models. The Camry's paint options are also slightly different, with Edge White now available on non-TRD trim levels. However, the Galactic Aqua hue has been discontinued.

We'd select the spiciest Camry of the bunch, which is the tuned-up TRD model. It's only available with the 301-hp V-6 and eight-speed automatic. In addition to its racier body kit—complete with a discrete rear spoiler and a pair of prominent exhaust tips—the sedan sports a retuned suspension that's 0.6 inches lower than on the regular models. Other performance-enhancing features include larger front brake rotors and black 18-inch rims that can be had with all-season or summer tires. The upgrades make the Camry TRD more engaging to drive than the rest of the lineup, even if its cat-back exhaust system doesn't sound as thrilling as its many aerodynamic add-ons suggests.
