When it comes to mid-size sedans, the Toyota Camry is the king. According to Toyota, it has been America’s best-selling passenger car for the past 17 years. Americans love their Camrys. The sedan is family-friendly, reliable, and, now in its eighth generation, quite stylish. But when it comes to performance and fun-to-drive dynamics, the Camry is usually isn’t at the top of the list. That changes with the new 2020 Toyota Camry TRD.
TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development and it’s the automaker’s in-house performance division. Think of it like AMG at Mercedes, BMW’s M Division, or Dodge’s SRT. TRD has been increasing the performance of the brand’s pickups and SUVs since the 1990s, and now it has turned its attention to the popular Camry for the first time, dialing up its performance and fun factor. The new Camry TRD offers a track-tuned suspension, over 300 horsepower, and a more aggressive design inside and out, including a large rear spoiler and red seatbelts. Is it a true sports sedan? You bet it is.
