Despite what is happening in other parts of the automotive industry, midsize sedans have continued unabated in delivering buyers performance, efficiency and plenty of features. The Toyota Camry has led its segment for more than 15 years by providing all of the above and for the new model year, takes things a step or two further. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2019 Chevy Malibu makes it clear how much fight is still left in one of the industry’s most competitive segments. The two popular sedans are equals in many ways, but Toyota has created just enough space for the 2019 Camry to entice buyer to schedule a test drive at dealerships like Colonial Toyota. Customers can learn more about the iconic platform today by calling, 203-403-6890.
The Toyota Camry was completely redesigned just last year. However, that doesn’t mean Toyota was taking any time off in improving one of its most important models. Colonial Toyota customers will find Toyota’s updated infotainment system available that is compatible with some of today’s most popular digital devices. For a long time, the Malibu was an in-class leader for available technology, but the updates made to the 2019 Toyota Camry have pulled the two sedans even with one another. A lot of vehicles, including the 2019 Camry and 2019 Malibu, are compatible with smartphone apps. However, owners of the new Camry will also be able to bring their Amazon Alexa experience into their Camry ownership experience.
On the surface, the available powertrains for the 2019 Toyota Camry might not look different, but the sedan’s performance specifications tell a much different story. The standard powertrain for the 2019 Camry is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make more 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. XSE trims of the new Camry get a further three-horsepower boost. Colonial Toyota customers can also choose a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that also uses the same eight-speed automatic. The upgraded powertrain makes 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Buyers who choose either corresponding powertrains in the 2019 Malibu will not be able to match their Camry counterparts in terms of performance.
