2021 Toyota Camry
2021 Toyota Camry at Stampede Toyota in Calgary, Alberta
Dependability is an amazing quality in a person, but perhaps an even better quality in a vehicle—and one that Toyota has personified since it first started making cars in 1937. Perhaps there isn’t a vehicle in the Toyota lineup that embodies this philosophy more than their standout midsize sedan, the Camry. For almost 40 years the Camry has been the go-to vehicle for families looking for a little more out of their vehicle, be it comfort, safety features, or simply a smooth and exciting drive. The 2021 Toyota Camry carries on this legacy thanks to its efficient powertrains, class-leading safety, and stylish exterior. Read on to learn more about the 2021 Camry, available at Calgary’s Stampede Toyota.
With a fresh facelift for the new model year, the 2021 Toyota Camry provides a sporty and refined new look—starting with the redesigned front fascia found across the trim lineup. While the LE and XLE give the 2021 Camry a real air of authority, it’s the honeycomb-style grille and side vent inserts and accents found on the SE and XSE that give this midsize sedan a much sportier vibe. Any Toyota trim sporting the XSE badging is sure to provide an athletic appeal, and the 2021 Camry XSE is no different; an integrated spoiler, sport front mesh grille, 19-inch alloy wheels, and an available panoramic glass roof (on gas models only) ensure that this Camry trim level has the looks to back up its exceptional performance.
Inside the 2021 Toyota Camry, a driver-focused cabin offers an intuitive layout with every control you need right at your fingertips. If you find yourself in the front seats of the Camry SE you’ll be treated to heated seats, perfect for Alberta winters, while the SE Upgrade adds an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat alongside a heated steering wheel. Going one step further, the XSE and XLE models add leather seating surfaces for a more refined look and feel. Two special editions take the undeniably exciting look of the 2021 Camry even further, with the Nightshade Edition adding 18-inch black alloy wheels, black door handles, gloss black window trim, black badging, and more, while the limited Camry TRD V6 offers racetrack-inspired looks including 19-inch TRD matte black alloy wheels, a cat-back dual exhaust with polished stainless steel tips, a body kit, and more.

Not only does the 2021 Toyota Camry look incredibly sporty, it has the performance to match, starting with the 203 horsepower 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine found on the LE, XLE, and SE trims. That same 2.5-litre engine sees a small bump to 206 horsepower on the XSE trim, while an available 3.5-litre V6 engine produces a whopping 301 horses. All matched to an 8-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission—with paddle shifters on the SE and XSE models—the Camry manages to be both powerful and efficient, offering exceptional fuel economy across the entire range of trims. But it goes further than just a powerful engine and efficient transmission; the 2021 Camry has a low centre of gravity allowing it to hug corners at high speeds, while an expertly-tuned drivetrain and suspension reduce vibrations from the road to offer a smooth and comfortable drive. AWD models of the Camry feature Toyota’s Dynamic Torque All-Wheel Drive system, which monitors road conditions and automatically adjusts power distribution to the front and rear wheels—allowing for more fuel efficient performance in dry conditions, and more control when traction is at a premium.
