Toyota introduces new safety technology with 2021 Camry sedan

New Equipment for the 2021 Toyota Camry 

Regardless of whatever else happens inside of the new vehicle inventory available at the Colonial Toyota showroom, the latest version of the Camry midsize sedan will always garner a lot of well-deserved attention. The Camry has ranked among the most popular and well-equipped platforms in its class for more than a couple of decades. When the new model year arrives in Milford, the Camry won’t be in any danger of giving up that title. The list of new equipment for the 2021 Toyota Camry is longer than ever before and arguably more distinguished than ever before. Not only will the 2021 Camry feature all-wheel-drive for the first time in the model’s history, but it is also getting several more upgrades that are equally as impressive. Let’s take a look at what the 2021 Toyota Camry has to offer.

We have covered the introduction of the Toyota all-wheel-drive system to the Camry lineup in a couple of previous blog posts. And, as exciting as this addition to spec sheet is, the 2021 Camry will have so much more to offer, including a new generation of the automaker’s safety technology, a revised front-end and a pair of new floating multimedia displays.  

How is Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ different? 

Toyota was well-ahead of the curve when it came to equipping its lineup with active driver safety systems. In fact, much of the automaker’s lineup had the Toyota Safety Sense system added years before the government-mandated deadline. The 2021 Toyota Camry will be the manufacturer’s first vehicle to feature the enhanced capabilities of Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+. Without getting too deep in the weeds, TSS 2.5+ basically improves how the system’s various features function. Every element will react faster and notice more detail, which will be even better for preventing collisions. 

Additionally, Toyota is including a rear seat reminder system on all 2021 Camry trim grades. If the system detects a rear door was opened within 10 minutes of the engine being started, or any time after the engine shut down, the driver will hear a series of chimes to remind them to look in the back seat. 

Heads-up Display 

Almost every credible study on traffic safety has concluded that the chances of an accident increase exponentially when the driver’s eyes leave the road. Toyota is including a 10-inch color heads-up display on the XLE and XSE models that will project speed, navigation and other vital information in the driver’s eye line, without being obtrusive or distracting.
