If Henry Ford can be proclaimed the man who put the nation on wheels, Toyota can justifiably claim to be the automaker responsible for getting the nation into hybrids. Indeed, Toyota’s Prius is the poster child of gasoline/electric hybrid automobiles. Further, Toyota’s Avalon, Highlander, and its best-selling Camry model are all offered with hybrid powertrains.
Finding such a heavily refreshed Camry Hybrid presented a mere three years after the complete redesign of the 2011 Camry is a bit of a surprise. Given a product cycle of approximately six years, this is typically when we’d see a mid-cycle refresh. Instead, Toyota has virtually remade every aspect of the car —except the powertrain and the roof.
In other words, this as close to a complete redesign of Camry Hybrid as Toyota could get. Some might even considered a complete redesign. In all probability, your neighbor who just bought a 2014 Camry certainly does.
