Camry All-Wheel Drive system

 For the 2022 model year, the Toyota-developed Dynamic Torque Control AD system is available as a standalone option for the four-cylinder LE, XLE, SE, SE Nightshade, and ZSE grades. The AWD makes use of the high-efficiency 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine teamed with an eight-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission.

 For effective traction for inclement and slippery weather, while minimizing AWD’s typical drag on fuel economy, the company adopted the Dynamic Torque Control AWD system. This system can direct up to 50% of engine torque to the rear wheels, in response to acceleration from a start or slippage at the front wheels.

Camry TRD

Since the introduction of the Camry TRD in 2020, the company keeps on improving its grade. The 2022 Camry TRD features Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert as standard while the JBL Premium Audio system is an option on Camry TRD.

 Engine and power

 The 2022 Toyota Camry TRD comes with a DOHC 3.5-Liter V-6 engine that produces 301 horsepower. For maximum performance, the engine is mated to a Direct-Shift eight-speed automatic transmission that features sport mode and paddle shifters. For a more sporty exhaust tone, a specially tuned TRD cat-back dual exhaust system conveys a throatier idle and acceleration tone.

The TRD looks and function

The 2022 Camry TRD features a gloss black front grille with a sport mesh insert and black exterior badging. The aerodynamic body kits which include a front splitter, side aero skirts, trunk lid spoiler, and rear diffusers, not only add a track-ready look but also improve high-speed vehicle stability.

 The exterior features distinctive red pinstriping, red-painted brake calipers, red TRD badging, and polished stainless steel TRD exhaust tips that complete the road-hungry look.

 Color options

The 2022 Camry TRD is available in solid Midnight Black Metallic or in two-tone schemes that feature a new Calvary Blue or Wind Chill Pearl with a Midnight Black Metallic roof.

Interior design

 The interior features a Black Sport SofTex trimmed front seat with white accents and red-stitched TRD embroidered headrests. The leather-wrapped steering wheel also has red stitching, and even the seatbelts are red.

 Also featured in the interior is a shift knob with an embossed TRD logo, along with unique TRD floor and trunk mats, and a unique TRD meter with red illuminated accents and multi-information display (MID) start-up animation to complete the cabin upgrades.

2022 Camry interior

 The 2022 Toyota Camry displays information to the driver via three available displays, they include a floating 7- or 9-inch central touchscreen display. This same design was first used in the latest Toyota RAV4.

  Available on XLE and XSE grades is a 10-inch Head-Up Display (HUD) that displays vital information, including speed and turn by turn navigation directions, onto the lower portion of the windshield. Camry also offers available 7-inch multi-information within the instrument cluster.

 Occupants and the driver get a sporty cockpit-type feel while treating both the driver and the front passenger to expansive outward visibility.

 All grades come with a sophisticated, higher-tech look with linear dark, wood inlay, or patterned metal interior depending on the grade. 

 Exquisite stitching on the front- and rear-seat surfaces, one example of the high level of craftsmanship, is found throughout the vehicle. The XLE grade features a luxurious-looking textured herringbone seat pattern. Ventilated front seats are available on the XLE and XSE.

Camry’s cabin comfort just keeps going for 2022. The gas grades with 4-cylinder engines now offer standard automatic dual-zone climate control, which still comes standard on the XLE and XSE grade. The LE, SE, XLE, and XSE Hybrid grade has standard dual-zone automatic climate control with air filter, electric compressor, humidity sensor, and rear-seat vents. Rear seat vents come standard on the XLE and XSE Hybrid grades and are available as a package upgrade on the LE and SE.

Interior colors

Exterior colors determine the interior colors, they include Ash, Macadamia, or Black. An exclusive Cockpit Red interior for a touch of exotic sports car flavor is offered on the sport-oriented XSE grade.
