With newly added AWD, Toyota's Camry and Avalon are ready to battle winter

[2019.11.13, Wed 13:05] The Toyota Camry is incredibly popular with carbuyers, but for many shoppers, the ubiquitous midsize sedan is missing one thing - all-wheel drive. Toyota is adding all-wheel drive to the Camry, as well as the larger Avalon sedan. The all-wheel drive Camry goes on sale in spring 2020 as a 2020 model, with the Avalon following in fall 2020 as a 2021 model. Adding all-wheel drive to the Camry and Avalon was also relatively easy, according to Toyota. The all-wheel drive Camry weighs 165 pounds more than a front-wheel drive model, while the Avalon weighs about the same with all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, according to Toyota. While front-wheel drive models are available with a choice of powertrains - including V6 and hybrid options - the all-wheel drive Camry and Avalon use the RAV4's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Toyota Avalon all-wheel drive models were designed specifically for North America, and will be built exclusively at Toyota's Georgetown, Kentucky, factory.
