2020 Toyota Camry Now Has Available AWD
AWD is a highly sought-after feature. The Camry is a highly sought-after car. It seems only natural that the two would go together, right? Well, unfortunately, no. Not since 1991. Or at least that was the case until Toyota made a very special announcement quite recently…
Does the Toyota Camry have AWD?
Produced in America at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky facility, the 2020 Toyota Camry is getting an AWD option; the FWD Camry model will remain standard, though. AWD models are expected to be available starting Summer 2020. The AWD option is available for the LE, SE, XLE, and XSE trims and coincides an optional cold weather package. The cold weather package includes heated seats, heated mirrors, and a heated steering wheel depending on the trim. We love this decision and can’t wait to get our hands the new models. The 2020 Camry with AWD is only planned for the American market at the time of writing.
Dynamic AWD System
The all-wheel drive system on the 2020 Camry will be the same innovative one introduced with the 2018 RAV4. It’s called Toyota Dynamic Torque Control AWD (TC-AWD). It can provide up to 50% of the engine’s torque to individual rear wheels instantly. Other traditional AWD systems can only spare 20% of engine torque to the rear axle as a whole. With a complex monitoring system that receives input from multiple sources, the TC-AWD system can automatically prevent slippage to specific wheels before it occurs. It also minimizes the awkward pulling that results from one wheel having traction when another doesn’t.
