2017 Toyota Camry: Why You Can Rely On This Mid-Size Sedan


Over the many years that the Toyota Camry has been on the market, it has consistently been named one of the most reliable mid-size sedans. And while the experts at Street Toyota agree wholeheartedly with these findings, we know many of you may be thinking: what exactly makes a car reliable?

By definition, if something is reliable, it is trusted to do, or provide, what is needed. If we apply this definition to cars, a reliable vehicle is one that will get you from Point A to Point B in an efficient and safe manner.

To further explain, we’ll go into detail about aspects of the 2017 Toyota Camry that help it reach this high standard.

How the 2017 Toyota Camry Exceeds Our Reliability Standards.

A leader in efficient, yet bold, performance.

Don’t worry: efficiency doesn’t mean you’ll lose out on dynamic performance — especially in the Toyota Camry. Choose your blend of thrill and efficiency with three available engine options:

  • 2.5-liter 4-Cylinder 6-Speed Automatic: 178 horsepower ; 170 lb.-ft. torque
  • 3.5-liter V6 DOHC 24-Valve Dual VVT-i: 268 horsepower ; 248 lb.-ft. torque
  • Hybrid engine: 2.5-liter 4-Cylinder DOHC 16-Valve Dual VVT-i: EV and ECO Modes

The fuel efficiency of these engines range as you might expect. Offering lesser horsepower, the 4-cylinder engine achieves an impressive 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, while the more powerful V6 achieves up to 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

Thanks to Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive, the Hybrid trims boast up to 40 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.

Setting the standard for safety innovation.

Safety is one of the keystones for a reliable vehicle, and the 2017 Toyota Camry delivers. Awarded a 5-star overall safety rating by the NHTSA, the Camry is fully equipped to keep you safe. The Star Safety System™ is standard tech in every Camry model and provides the following features:

  • Traction Control (TRAC)

  • Brake Assist (BA)
  • Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
