New details have emerged about the ninth-generation 2025 Toyota Camry , which has received significant changes to the powertrain.

For the first time in history, the Camry is available exclusively as a four-cylinder hybrid. This means that the legendary Camry three and five, equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, is becoming a thing of the past. Additionally, the lineup also lacks a sporty TRD model.

Toyota has offered a V6 engine option in the Camry for decades. The third generation model introduced the six-cylinder engine to the United States for the 1988 model year. This 2.5-liter powerplant produced about 153 hp, while the base 2-liter four-cylinder engine at the time only made about 114 hp. Since then, the V6 has become the mainstay of the Camry lineup.

The situation changed in 2025. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine produces 225 hp. on the front wheels or 232 hp. with all-wheel drive, which is much less than the 301 horsepower of the outgoing V6.

When asked by Motor1 about the lack of a V6 engine, a Toyota spokesperson said the press release included “all trim levels and powertrains for the 2025 model year.” A Toyota spokesman later added that “the V6 is finished.”

The situation is similar with the TRD package, which has disappeared from the lineup. Among the available trim levels, the top-end is the XSE, which is equipped with two-tone paint and 19-inch wheels. Buyers can choose a two-tone color scheme with a Midnight Black Metallic roof and Ocean Gem, Wind Chill Pearl, Heavy Metal or Supersonic Red body.
