Most automakers would be pretty quiet the model year following a vehicle’s redesign. Toyota is not most automakers. The manufacturer kept everything in place for the newest version of its midsize sedan, but also released it with a vastly updated roster of standard technology. To be sure, several of Toyota’s competitors have made a lot of gains in the midsize sedan class. It’s pretty safe to say that trend is over for the foreseeable future. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2019 Ford Fusion will provide potential buyers with an excellent illustration of these improvements. The 2019 Toyota Camry has arrived at the Colonial Toyota showroom and customers can schedule a test drive today with our product experts by calling, 203-403-6890.
For the 2019 model year, Toyota wanted to make sure that the Camry wasn’t going to be deficient in any areas when compared to the competition. The popular Entune infotainment system is a familiar feature that has come with the Camry for a long time. Toyota has vastly improved its capabilities by making it compatible with several popular devices that its potential owners use every day. Those who use the Apple iPhone and Amazon Alexa digital home assistant will be able to expand those devices’ functionality in the 2019 Camry. Additionally, Toyota is continuing to make its suite of active safety systems standard across all five trims of the 2019 Camry. The 2019 Ford Fusion does have competing versions of this technology. But it’s not available on all trims.
It would be easy to make the mistake that because the 2019 versions of the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion offer very similar engine options that would be equally-matched in performance. Not much could be further from reality. The standard powertrain setup for the 2019 Camry is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine of the new Fusion is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission but makes fewer than 175 horsepower as well as fewer than 175 pound-feet of torque. Colonial Toyota customers can also choose versions of the 2019 Camry with a 301-horsepower V-6. The competing Ford engine, which is a turbocharged, four-cylinder, has a peak output of 240 horsepower.
