Toyota has reworked the Camry formula for 2021 with small but many changes to its signature sedan. It’s including flashy additions to the TRD trim and all-wheel drive in 2020.
Toyota Camry gets Rid of Base L Trim and Uses XSE Trim
The 2021 model dropped the base L trim and then added an XSE trim which is combining the SE’s sportier appearance, suspension, and steering with some of the premium interior features from the XLE. Then, there are different trims that got revising front fascias. In fact, Toyota has added its latest Toyota’s Safety Sense driver-assist suite. Also with access to features like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. Then it is lane-centering, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder.
Moreover, the Nightshade package is available for the Camry Hybrid and it is big news for 2022. In the past, it could be on the non-Hybrid trims. The Nightshade does dress the window trim, badging, door handles, mirror caps, and shark fin antenna in black. It also sets the sedan on 18-inch black alloys. However, the prices for 2022 for the regular and Hybrid ranges, along with price differentials from the 2021 prices to start after the $1,075 destination fee, are:

LE: $26,370 ($250); SE: $27,910 ($275); SE Nightshade: $28,610 ($275); XLE: $31,1250 ($100); XSE: $31,670 ($100); TRD V6: $33,435 ($100); XLE V6: $36,245 ($100) and XSE V6: $36,795 ($100).

The LE and XLE, elsewhere in the range, do get their front fascias that are restyled to look different from the honeycomb-style grille with vent inserts on the SE and XSE. Moreover, the Ice Edge exterior color which has been exclusive for the TRD V6 can now, in fact, be bought for the LE, SE, and XSE trim, which color does replace the Galactic Aqua that does away.
