Finally, the Japanese automaker Toyota has recently been officially revealed the 2020 Camry TRD for the U.S. market. Toyota has claimed that the new Camry TRD is a “track ready” car with a red seatbelt and mod chassis. Of course, not only a light revision, but there are total, complete and comprehensive changes made by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) on the new Camry TRD – a Toyota racing division that is fully responsible for their NASCAR racing engine program.
Under its hood, the 2020 Toyota Camry TRD is still powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 301 horsepower and it’s also equipped with a freer-flowing exhaust aft of the catalytic converter. The V6 engine is available for the XSE trim of the new Camry TRD, which is heralded capable of sprint from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds. Although it’s claimed to be slightly slower than the Honda Accord with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The new Camry TRD 3.5L V6 is still available with 8-speed automatic transmission that can be controlled manually via steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. In order to compensate for its speed and improve braking, Toyota has installed a new 12.9-inch front brake rotors with two-piston calipers in this mid-size sports sedan. That’s different from the Camry XSE which has a 12-inch front brake rotors with single-piston calipers.
Additional undercar bracing components are claimed to help the Camry TRD body become much stiffer than the standard model, plus the revisions made to its suspension make the structure more rigid, too. The suspension is also equipped with lower 0.6-inch stifter springs and front/rear new anti-roll bars. Furthermore, the 2020 Camry TRD now uses 19-inch matte-black wheels wrapped in the Bridgestone Potenza summer tires.
Meanwhile, release date for the 2020 Toyota Camry TRD is scheduled for this fall with four exterior color choices available when the car reaches dealership, including Celestial Silver, Supersonic Red, Midnight Black Metallic, and Windchill Pearl. As for the estimated official price, the new high-performance 2020 Toyota Camry TRD are expected to go on sale in the United States at a price of around $40,000.
