2014 Toyota Camry XLE Review

The 2014 Toyota Camry is a favorite in the world of midsize sedans, and while the base model is luxurious enough for some, you can opt for the Camry XLE if you want to experience true luxury.

Like the base model, the 2014 Camry XLE is a five-passenger car with four doors. It has FWD and a six-speed automatic transmission that includes a manual mode. It is an incredibly roomy car with enough legroom, hip room, and headroom no matter where you sit, including the middle rear seat.

Options

There are two main options for those who decide to upgrade to the highest trim level. The Camry XLE has the standard 2.5-liter gas four-cylinder engine, while the Camry XLE V6 has an improved 3.5-liter gas V6 engine. The XLE V6 also has multiple additional features when compared with the XLE. You also have the option to go with a Camry Hybrid XLE, which is similar to the XLE but a hybrid.

Engine

As mentioned, there are two main engine options available for the 2014 Toyota Camry XLE. The XLE’s engine has a reasonable 178 horsepower and 170 foot pounds of torque. Its weight to power ratio is 18.2 pounds per horsepower, but the XLE V6 is a significant improvement. This improved engine has an impressive 268 horsepower and 248 foot-pounds of torque, which lead to the excellent weight to power ratio of 12.7 pounds per horsepower.

Gas Mileage

The gas mileage you get with your Toyota Camry XLE will depend on the model you choose. The XLE gets 25 miles per gallon in the city and 35 on the highway. The XLE V6, on the other hand, gets about 4 miles less per gallon, no matter where you are driving. Either car will give you a respectable mileage that can help the environment and your wallet.

Features
