  • Обзор Toyota Camry TRD 2020 года: жестче и спортивнее, но лучше ли?

За последние 40 лет Toyota Racing Development прошла большой путь. Хотя начинали они, как собственное ателье и поставщик запчастей для Toyota, теперь они отвечает за разработку некоторых самых популярных грузовиков и внедорожников Toyota: Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, Tundra TRD Pro и 4Runner TRD Pro. Благодаря этим тачкам, поступающие как дилерские партии, и автомобилей, таких как почтенный Camry, которые сидят там намного дольше, команда разработчиков TRD получила задание наложить немного своего волшебства на семейный седан компании. Результатом является Toyota Camry TRD 2020 года, и после вождения кажется, что TRD не позволили зайти достаточно далеко.

Было бы слишком просто дать оценку внешнему виду Camry TRD с ее колоритным задним спойлером, передним сплиттером, боковыми юбками и красными тормозными суппортами, торчащими из под его новых черных колес в стиле DTM, но это было бы не честно, т.к. значительные изменения получила подвеска и шасси, также сделанная командой TRD. Используя спортивную Camry XSE в качестве базовой линии, инженеры TRD начали именно с подвески. Автомобиль был опущен примерно на полдюйма и оснащен более жесткими амортизаторами с клапанами TRD, более жесткими пружинами и еще более жесткими передними и задними стабилизаторами поперечной устойчивости. Решив не останавливаться на подвеске, люди из команды TRD также обратили внимание на шасси Camry. Исключение люка из опционального листа Camry TRD принесло им в своем роде некоторую дополнительную жесткость, но еще большей жесткости, принесло добавление трех дополнительных скоб кузова под автомобиль. Как Вы можете видеть, ребята из TRD любят пожестче =)

Завершили свою работу перенастроенной рулевой рейкой, более громким выхлопом, увеличенными передними тормозами с двухпоршневыми суппортами, более широкими, но более легкими колесами (легче, чем у колес XSE примерно на 1 кг), которые, предположительно, помогают охлаждать тормоза.

Несмотря на то, что специалисты по планированию продукции Toyota были фанатичны, чтобы команда TRD работала над Camry, они были менее готовы финансировать любые изменения двигателя или трансмиссии. Таким образом, Camry TRD останется с 3,5-литровым V-6 мощностью 301 л.с. и восьмиступенчатой ​​автоматической коробкой передач. Стоимость этой Тойоты 31,999 долларов, говорят, что это самый дешевый способ получить Camry с V-6.

Итак, как все это работает в реальном мире. Красные кожаные сиденья Camry, красные ремни безопасности и красная отделка, безусловно, производят хорошее первое впечатление, но, если вы ожидаете чего-то большего, чем немного более спортивная Camry – или ее настоящий конкурент Honda Accord Sport – вполне вероятно, что Вы останетесь разочарованны.

Проблема не столько в том, что команда TRD сделала с Camry, сколько в том, что ей не разрешили и, следовательно, команда не сделала. И это не вина двигателя. V-6 развивает мощность 301 л.с. в автомобиле, который весит около полутора тонн, поэтому имеет приличное соотношение мощности и веса. Скорее, это настройка трансмиссии, которая высосет весь потенциал этой машинки.

Спортивный режим на трансмиссии или переключатели должны помочь в теории, но вместо этого они больше работают как ограничитель передачи, так как трансмиссия продолжает переключаться на повышенную и понижающую передачу, как пожелает. Рулевое управление все еще расплывчато и ему не хватает деликатности, которую вы получаете от таких моделей Toyota, как новые Supra или 86.

Единственная область, где усовершенствования TRD ощутимы и имеют самое большое значение, находится на трассе автокросса. При движении спиной к спине с базовым Camry XSE, превосходный контроль кузова Camry TRD впечатляет. TRD более посажен, стабилен и проворен. Также чувствуется большая разница в торможении.

Camry TRD во многих отношениях является чудом в линейке TRD. В то время как модели 4Runner, Tacoma и Tundra TRD ориентированы исключительно на внедорожные характеристики, Camry TRD — не та дорожная модель, которой она могла бы и должна быть. В лучшем случае это более жесткая, спортивная Camry. Toyota планирует создать 6000 образцов в 2020 модельном году. Camry TRD является примером инженерной команды, работающей со связанными за спиной руками. Надеемся, что в следующий раз Toyota позволит им сделать большее.

2020 Toyota Camry TRD Test Drive

Introduction

Even though race cars that look like the Toyota Camry have been the face of the brand’s successful NASCAR Cup Series effort in recent years, it’s not likely many Camry buyers selected the practical midsize family sedan for its performance chops. The lack of a performance “halo” model for the street among its broad spectrum of trims apparently hasn’t hurt Camry sales as the midsize Toyota has been the best-selling sedan in the U.S. for the last 17 years.

That situation changes for 2020. With the return of the Supra 2-seat sports car to the Toyota showroom and the motorsports-loving CEO, Akio Toyoda, guiding the company, there is newfound interest in performance. This year, the lineup of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) models has been expanded beyond pickup trucks and SUVs to include a pair of unlikely sedans, the Camry and Avalon.

The 2020 Toyota Camry TRD model is the first-ever in the midsize sedan’s lineup. More than just an appearance upgrade, the 2020 Camry TRD gets suspension and chassis mods that transform it into a sports sedan. Including the $955 destination charge, the new Camry TRD is priced at $32,125. It’s the least-expensive Camry equipped with the 3.5-liter V6.

Styling and Design

Subtlety, usually a Camry design given, is not in evidence here. The 2020 Camry TRD rolls with a provocative pedestal-mounted rear wing that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a Honda Civic Type R or Subaru WRX STi. The transformation from sober sedan to road rocket continues with a full aerodynamic body kit with ground-effect rockers, little airfoils in front and behind each wheel opening, aggressive-looking front and rear fascias, a large-bore cat-back dual exhaust with polished stainless-steel outlets and TRD-exclusive flat-black 19-inch alloy wheels. There’s more street savvy in evidence with a black-out grille, black badging and red-painted brake calipers. A striking $500 two-tone paint option as seen here on the Barcelona Red Metallic test car adds a gloss-black roof, mirror caps and black-out window trim.

The tuner-car sedan look is enhanced by the TRD Camry’s lower, road-hugging stance, reduced 0.6 inch by the use of shorter coil springs.

Inside, TRD touches include aluminum foot pedals, sport fabric Softex-covered seats with red and gray striped inserts, red stitching, red seatbelts and TRD logos on the seatbacks, floor mats and shifter.

For sure, the TRD is not your parent’s (or grandparent’s) Camry, even if they might have been huge NASCAR fans. The car is not a sleeper.

Comfort and Cargo

Meanwhile, all the thoughtfulness, accommodations and accouterments buyers have come to expect in mainstream Camry models carry over to the TRD version. Despite the sporty cues, there are no rock-hard thigh bolsters or front seatback wings to contend with on the firm but comfortable medium-density foam-padded seats. No sacrifices to make on the altar of performance.

The Camry TRD combines a driver-focused cockpit with upscale, soft-touch materials that deliver premium sedan plushness at a mainstream sedan price. As with other Camry models, a dramatic horizontal dash design sweeps into the doors and features a diagonally cut center stack and asymmetrical floor console design. Standard fare includes a power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar, a leather-wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel with paddle shifters and both conventional cruise control and adaptive cruise control buttons, remote keyless entry, pushbutton start, power windows with auto up and down, plus dual sun visors with sliding extensions.

Interior storage is generous with a covered center console bin under the center armrest, a generous-sized glovebox, an open bin for small items ahead of the shifter, an overhead sunglass holder, a pair of front cup holders, a dash-mounted coin bin to the left of the steering wheel and ample space in the doors for bottles, maps, umbrellas and such.

The Camry TRD has a midsize sedan-appropriate trunk measuring 15.1 cubic feet. Need more cargo space? The back seat is a 60/40 split fold-down design for carrying longer items in the trunk. A flip-down center armrest and another pair of cup holders add comfort and convenience to an already roomy back seat.

Safety and Technology

As with all 2020 Camry models, the new TRD version finally brings Android Auto cellphone mirroring to the car’s long and impressive list of standard equipment, joining Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility added previously. As the TRD Camry is based on SE trim, it has to make do with the smaller 7-inch touchscreen, plus a 6-speaker AM/FM stereo with SiriusXM. Hands-free phone connectivity and Bluetooth music streaming as well as in-car Wi-Fi are also included.

Not available in the TRD Camry is the larger 8-inch touchscreen with HD Radio and a CD player or the 9-speaker JBL premium audio system, which are exclusive to XLE and XSE trims. Navigation isn’t a TRD option either.

That said, the base Camry system with the 7-inch screen is a breeze to use. There are no remote control touchpads or control wheels to distract you from what the TRD Camry is good at—sporty driving. The touchscreen is within easy reach of both driver and front passenger with large analog knobs for volume and tuning and easy-to-access hard shortcut buttons flanking the screen, plus steering-wheel and voice command controls.

To keep the price of the Camry TRD model down, Toyota based it on the SE model. This means the TRD version gets a fairly generous suite of standard safety technology, including lane departure alert with mild steering assist, a backup camera with trajectory lines, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam control, and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking plus a 3-year subscription to Toyota Safety Connect which gives owners emergency roadside assistance, automatic collision notification and a stolen vehicle locator.

Unfortunately, because the TRD model is based on the SE, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring are not available, even at extra cost. Also unavailable is the optional driver’s assistance package which includes a head-up display, intelligent clearance sonar parking assistance with rear cross-traffic braking and a backup camera with a 360-degree overhead view of the car and its immediate surroundings.

Driving Impressions

Toyota says the TRD Camry’s chassis dynamics were honed with track input. While the traditional family sedan goodness is still in evidence, the TRD model’s precise steering, excellent body control and road-hugging stance gives the car a European sport sedan ambiance.

It starts with additional underbody bracing to boost the Camry’s already ample torsional rigidity of the TNGA-K platform the Camry is based on. From there, the TRD folks fitted shorter, stiffer coil springs, thicker anti-roll bars, larger front brakes and TRD-tuned gas shocks. Ride height is reduced 0.6 inch for a lower center of gravity and available 19-inch summer performance tires deliver increased stick and satisfyingly quick turn-in. The ride is firm but not jouncy and never harsh, even over rutted pavement.

Adding some scoot is the TRD Camry’s standard 3.5-liter V6. The direct-injected, 301-hp 3.5-liter V6, also shared with the Lexus ES 350 and RX 350, sports Toyota’s D-4S dual fuel-injection that utilizes both multiport and direct injectors. It is paired with a wide-ratio Direct Shift 8-speed step-shift automatic with paddle shifters.

The TRD Camry can scamper to 60 mph from rest in just under 6 seconds flat, with good throttle response for overtaking on 2-lane highways and merging onto high-speed freeways and has a velvety exhaust note to boot.

EPA estimates for the TRD Camry are 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway/25 mpg combined. The V6 runs on regular unleaded.

As with more pedestrian Camry models, the TRD offers three driver-selectable drive modes via a row of buttons on the center console. Selecting Eco gives more gradual throttle response under most driving situations and upshifts to higher gears earlier to keep engine revs lower, saving fuel in the process, but takes the fun out of staying ahead of traffic. Sport delivers crisper throttle response, later transmission upshifts with easier downshifts and higher steering effort at highway speeds, but makes the steering too stiff and takes a big bite out of fuel economy. The default Normal mode is the best, resulting in lively steering, crisp acceleration and a not-too-shabby observed average fuel economy in the high 20 mpg range.

Conclusion

While there may not have been a tremendous grass-roots demand for a Camry performance halo model, now that it’s here, the TRD version is worth a look. The boy-racer wing may not be for everyone, but Toyota is expanding its roster of offerings under the Camry tent to include everything from thrifty base models and hybrids to Lexus-like leather-lined premium trims, all-wheel-drive models and now a credible sports sedan. The beauty of the TRD Camry is its ability to engage the driver in a sporty, fun-to-drive way while giving up none of the traditional Toyota qualities of practicality, roominess and value.

Toyota Camry TRD 2020

I took delivery of a 2020 Toyota Camry TRD the day before the second NASCAR Cup Series race of the disrupted season, the Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway. Although I’m not a huge oval track fan, I watched it anyway because there isn’t any other racing happening. By coincidence, a Toyota Camry won the rain-shortened race.

As I watched the race, I thought the winning Camry has nothing in common with my test model. But after a few days, I realized it is more closely related to the NASCAR version than the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang race cars that it competed against. They are both supposedly based on retro versions of the original Pony Cars that first competed in the Trans Am race series in the late 1960s.

In contrast, the Camry is a midsize family car, which is what NASCAR race cars were historically based on. That’s where the «Win on Sunday, sell on Monday» catch phrase came from.

But more than that, the 2020 Camry TRD is more performance oriented than any current midsize Chevy or Ford. The current versions of the Chevy Malibu and Ford Fusion are both good affordable family cars, but their most powerful engines are small turbocharged four cylinders, and there are no sport option package.

In contrast, Toyota offers several versions of the new Camry with a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 301 horsepower and 267 foot-pounds of torque. And the TRD version include a genuine sport suspension, a lower restriction muffler, and such aerodynamic upgrades as a lower front scoop, side body moldings, and a rear wing.

More than that, the TRD is the least expensive V6 version of the Camry available. Although it lacks some features, like blind spot monitoring, it still includes all of the performance upgrades for around $32,000. Plus, the red and black paint job on my test car was striking, attracting attention everywhere I went.

It was also very comfortable and easy to drive for a performance-oriented car. Even with all the suspension upgrades, the ride was not too stiff. The exhaust was noticeable but not too loud. And, like all Camry models, it was roomy enough for five adults.

That said, the Camry TRD is not as fast as V8-equipped versions of Mustangs and Camaros. They are seriously fast, while V6 Camry’s are merely quick. But even my TRD version is must easier to live with than its V8-powered counterparts. Their additional horsepower is hardly ever needed in day-to-day driving, or even weekend trips where traffic-free roads can occasionally be found.

I admit that I was a little annoyed when Toyota first began NASCAR racing. I thought the series was supposed to be a showcase for Detroit’s Big Three. But then Dodge dropped out. And now the Camry is built in Georgetown, Kentucky, which makes it about as American as can be.

So while the 2020 Toyota Camry TRD may have nothing mechanically in common with the NASCAR version, it is more aligned with the most traditional of all American race series than you think. And it offers a lot of fun and style for relatively little money for the boy (and girl) racers in all of us.

Reader Review: 2020 Toyota Camry TRD

First-ever ‘race-tuned’ Camry impressed Calgarian with its style and handling

Incredulity was par for the course as Brian Smith spent a week testing the new Toyota Camry TRD.

‘THAT’s a Toyota Camry!?’ people queried the Calgarian as he took his kids to one of their first basketball practices in the cautiously re-opening city during this new pandemic-era. They weren’t the only ones to respond in such a manner.

And yes, it’s a Camry. It’s actually the first TRD-tuned – for Toyota Racing Development – Camry that Toyota has ever produced. Based on the eighth-generation Camry, a five-passenger sedan that was redesigned and launched for the 2018 model year, this TRD version adds to the XSE V6 model some unique and aggressive styling with an aerodynamic body kit. Included in that kit is a front splitter, side skirts, a trunk lid spoiler and rear diffuser. The TRD package also adds chassis stiffening braces and suspension upgrades with stronger coil springs, revised shock absorbers, front and rear sway bars and larger brakes.

“It looks like a NASCAR pace car,” Smith says of his first impression. “The black roof gives it a ‘race car’ feel, and the red brake calipers behind the jet black 19-inch rims wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza tires with TRD logos are spot on.

“The trim, ground effects and grille give the car a very aggressive stance, and although the car looks like it has been lowered (it has, by 0.6-inches) and the ground effects accentuate that, it’s not so much that I’d worry about bottoming out. The tail on the trunk – well that was over the top.”

Smith learned to drive in Edmonton, and initially, his cars tended to be economical four-cylinder vehicles equipped with manual transmissions. His first new car was a 2004 Acura TSX, and as his family grew an SUV was added to the stable. Currently, he drives a 2018 Audi S4 and his wife maintains a 2009 Acura MDX. While Smith is now working from home, he did at one time commute five days a week in the Audi. Often, the family heads to the mountains or to Edmonton for the kids to participate in tournaments – in those instances, they’d drive that distance in the MDX.

When shopping for a new car, Smith likes to consider, “Performance, and not the zero-to-sixty kind, but good feel, good cornering and good control. I like a car to have a bit of luxury, so sunroof, GPS/navigation, good sound system, USB ports – things that make a car function these days. Finally, price – there has to be good value for the money.”

When asked about his thoughts regarding Toyota, Smith says he’s always considered the automaker as one that consistently builds good-quality, reliable cars that might be middle-of-the-road when it comes to performance. But the Toyota Supras of his youth? Those were aspirational vehicles.

“This really is a good-looking car,” Smith says of the Camry TRD. “And until you go around and see the Camry badge on the back you really wouldn’t know that you were looking at a mid-range mid-size family sedan. The additional TRD logo on the back helps explain what happened.”

Finished in Supersonic Red, Smith’s Camry TRD rang in at just a bit less than $39,000, including freight and PDI but before taxes. Because the TRD is based on the XSE V6 Camry, a number of amenities actually get removed, including a power moonroof, head-up display and blind spot monitoring system. Also, because there’s a strengthening V-brace located behind the rear seats, the 60/40 folding seat backs are deleted.

Smith, who is 6-feet 2-inches tall, didn’t have any issues getting into the cabin. Initial adjustments of the eight-way power driver’s seat and exterior mirrors was intuitive, and he says there was plenty of room for him to get comfortable.

“I was happy to see an actual gearshift lever, instead of buttons as some manufacturers have done,” Smith says. “Buttons just aren’t as tactile as a lever, and having grown up driving standards, my hand just naturally falls to where the shift lever is in the console.”

As for the actual driving experience, Smith says, “The engine felt just a little flat. If somebody had simply said, ‘Here’s a Camry with a V6,’, I’d say it’s great. But if you make it look like a race car, with super handling characteristics but the engine is the same – well, I guess I’d have to say it’s not as fast as it looks.”

That’s because the TRD employs the same 301-horsepower, 3.5-litre V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission found in two other Camrys, the XSE V6 and XLE V6 models. It won’t sound the same, though, thanks to its TRD-specific cat-back exhaust system that produces a not-unpleasant rumble. The other Camry trims, the LE, SE XSE and XLE, are equipped with a 2.5L inline-four that makes 203 hp, or 206 in the case of the XSE.

“The engine itself is really good, but in this car, it seems a little out of place,” Smith explains. “The overall connection to the road in the Camry TRD was just fantastic, Toyota picked the right balance in the suspension and handling. It’s a great ride.”

While the family had the Camry TRD, Smith drove to Big Hill Springs park just north of the city. The kids, he says, liked the car and enjoyed the ‘racer’ appearance of the exterior. His wife also appreciated the TRD and enjoyed the ride but wasn’t sure she liked all of the extra attention it garnered.

“I don’t know what demographic will be looking at this car,” Smith says, and concludes, “But for that little less than $39,000 price tag there’s a lot of car for the money.”

2020 Toyota Camry & 2020 Toyota Camry TRD

Of all the mid-size sedans on the market, the Toyota Camry sets the pace and, year after year, leads the way in its class because it’s so reassuring, agile, user-friendly and high-performance wherever it goes, whether in urban areas or on the scenic roads of Quebec, Canada and the United States.

Since Japanese ingenuity knows no bounds, the very first Camry TRD (Toyota Racing Development TRD) is now available with an even sportier, more aggressive and more aerodynamic face. Sherbrooke Toyota, in the Eastern Townships near Lennoxville and Rock Forest, presents its star vehicle, the 2020 Toyota Camry, as well as its supercar, the all-new Camry TRD.

The 2020 Toyota Camry Always in the Lead!

In 2018, the Japanese automaker decided to revamp the architecture of its sedan and created a platform called TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) to seat the all-new Camry. In 2020, we can see in all its splendour this quietly resplendent, sleek sedan that stands before us with great elegance and gives us a feeling of mission accomplished. The Toyota Camry is so popular that it comes in six trim levels, with the exception of the hybrid version. It offers a lot in terms of comfort, handling and performance and easily ranks first among mid-size sedans in Le Guide de l’Auto 2020 .

The LE, SE and XLE models are powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, while the XSE model comes with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and can reach 0–100 km/h in 8.3 seconds. The more advanced versions, the XSE V6 and XLE V6, feature a 3.5-litre six-cylinder (V6) engine that develops 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. These versions reach 0–100 km/h in 7.0 seconds and are very powerful and efficient.

Inside the Camry, comfort and driving pleasure are assured, and the cabin is spacious both for the driver and front and rear passengers, with plenty of legroom. It’s not for nothing that this sedan is so popular for long-distance driving. Even more interesting are the user-friendly features on the dashboard, the touch screen that can be up to 8 inches (on the more elaborate versions) and the very efficient controls on a tilting steering wheel. The 2020 Toyota Camry can count on forward-thinking features such as USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition, an Entune smartphone integration suite, passive and active safety systems and much more.

The 2020 Camry TRD is Agile and Surprising in Every Way!

The all-new Camry TRD has arrived in town and will give you a great feeling, not only because it’s an upgraded model of the 2020 Camry, but also for its exceptional handling, exclusive 19-inch wheels, Calty-designed aero kit and unique breathtaking TRD interior trim.

The 2020 Toyota Camry TRD is clearly focused on performance with more track-inspired styling thanks to enhancements and exclusive TRD chassis tuning. It delivers more agility, precision and control with a distinctly eye-catching design and an inspiring ride.

The new Camry TRD embodies the TRD’s holistic approach to vehicle improvement and is powered by the acclaimed 301-horsepower 3.5-litre DOHC V6 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission with sport mode and paddle shifters. This V6 breathes easier with a dual TRD Cat-Back exhaust system, giving the model a more raucous idle and acceleration sound.

In short, the all-new 2020 Camry TRD is sleek, high-performance, user-friendly and packed with innovative features and functionality, and boasts a high-gloss black front grille with Sport Mesh insert and black exterior badge. Available vehicle colours include Supersonic Red, Windchill Pearl (both two-tone) and Midnight Black Metallic; and polished stainless steel TRD exhaust tips on the Cat-Back exhaust complete the exterior makeover.
