The 2014.5 Camry is subtly revised versus the 2014 models, with largely tech upgrades and enhanced features and packages across the line.
As the long-running sales champ, the Camry is not quite a “stop and stare” type of car to see on the street. This continues for 2014.5 for all the LE and XLE trims from about $23,000 and up.
The SE model is by far the best-looking of the bunch, with a far better style all around. Most notably – up front, where the SE Camry uses a new grille style, lower air dam with central painted elements, and a few other tweaks.
A nice treat for value shoppers is a choice of V6 or standard four-cylinder power for this generation of SE Camry, versus its V6-only setup in previous years.
Toyota summarizes the model differences below:
The new-generation Camry employs an elegantly simple but modern form, emphasizing a wide, lower stance than previous models.
The LE and XLE feature additional exterior chrome trim, and the SE grade has its own lower-body design, fine-mesh upper grille section and integrated trunk spoiler.
Fog lights are standard on the XLE and SE grades. The SE also is distinguished by a three-part lower grille section housing fog lamps, along with black sport trim headlamp bezels.
