25 mpg city, 35 highway (four-cylinder); 21/30 (V-6); 43/39 (LE Hybrid)
Fuel economy has become a higher priority for mainstream shoppers today, and the Camry's engines range from fast and thirsty to smart and frugal.
Last year brought a number of changes to the other four-cylinder and V-6 models (lighter weight, earlier torque-converter lockup) aimed at mileage improvements, and ratings went up to 25/35 mpg for four-cylinder models and 21/30 mpg for the V-6.
The Hybrid is the leader in the lineup with its astounding 43 mpg city, 39 highway, according to the EPA.
The latest Camry Hybrid includes a readout for real-time gas mileage, as well as a power-flow display. And as in the Prius, Toyota has added EV Mode and Eco Mode to the Camry Hybrid. Under some situations, given proper charge, the lack of steep hills, and light throttle application, the Camry Hybrid can go about a half-mile or more on electricity alone.
Hybrids and four-cylinders are excellent gas-sippers, but V-6 Camrys are nothing special.
