2021 Toyota Camry four-cylinder to get eight-speed auto, power boost in Australia

The 2021 Toyota Camry four-cylinder will score a power boost and an all-new automatic transmission when the facelifted model arrives in the coming months. Australian government documents reveal the non-hybrid, facelifted Camry's 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine will develop 152kW of power – up 19kW over the 133kW produced by the outgoing base Ascent, and 17kW over the 135kW extracted by higher Ascent Sport, SX and SL grades...

VFACTS 2020: Toyota Camry top-selling mid-size sedan for 27th year

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon may have been consigned to the history books, however the Toyota Camry has outlasted them and gone from strength to strength, becoming the top-selling medium-size sedan in Australia for the 27th year in a row. Even at the height of their powers, the longest winning streak for the Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon was 15 years – when the Commodore led the market until 2011...

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020

It was a big year for automotive in 2020, with the exit of Holden, the cancellation of international motor shows and the Australian Grand Prix due to coronavirus, and the steady decline of new car sales. In a challenging climate, it's perhaps unsurprising that carmakers reduced their ranges, discontinued under-performers and replaced older models with hybrids, electric cars or new creations altogether...

Toyota Camry V6 dead in Australia: axed with 2021 facelift

The Toyota Camry V6 will be axed early next year, following in the tyre tracks of the Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon – and marking an end to the affordable six-cylinder sedan era. Toyota dealers in Australia have been advised the Camry V6 will be discontinued when the facelift model arrives in the first half of next year...

Cheap speed: The cars with the most power per dollar

In our era of turbocharging and electrification, it can seem almost weekly that a new, immensely powerful, absurdly expensive hypercar or super-sedan makes its debut. The Bugatti Bolide, SSC Tuatara, Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series and heavyweight GMC Hummer EV encompass some of the more recent additions to the high-horsepower club...

The models driving Australia's used-car price surge

Used vehicle prices in Australia are 25 per cent higher than they were during the same period last year, marking an all-time record rate of growth for the sector. Although new car sales are dwindling, demand for used vehicles has accelerated rapidly, smashing the previous record of 20 per cent growth set in December 2009...

Toyota price rises across the range

Pricing across the Toyota range has undergone a major shakeup, with the RAV4, LandCruiser, Corolla, Prius Hybrid, Camry, 86, Granvia, C-HR, and HiAce models all receiving price increases. The HiLux is also expected to increase in cost when the 2021 model is launched later this month, as previously reported by CarAdvice...

2021 Toyota Camry: new infotainment, advanced safety, here next year

The Toyota Camry has come in for a mid-life facelift, and the changes are more than skin deep. Beyond a subtle redesign of the front bumper, the 2021 Toyota Camry range will gain more advanced safety features, a tablet-style infotainment screen in the middle of the dash, and hybrid versions will get a lithium-ion battery pack...

Australia's most affordable hybrid and electric cars

The list of electric car and hybrid car options in Australia expands with every passing year, but their often prohibitive cost – particularly in the case of EVs – remains a major barrier to their uptake. Hybrid drivetrains are complex, while batteries for hybrid or electric cars are expensive to manufacture, which bumps up the price of hybrid and electric cars across the board...

Toyota recalls 45,683 cars due to fuel pump issue

Toyota Australia has issued a recall of 45,683 of its Camry (GSV70), Corolla (ZRE172), FJ Cruiser (GSJ15), Kluger (GSU50 and GSU55), HiLux (TGN121), Prado (GRJ150) and Landcruiser (URJ202) models spanning model-years 2013-2019. Affected vehicles were sold between 11 October 2013 and 3 April 2020...

Finally we can say "Oh what a feeling!"

My brother-in-law owns a 2008 TRD HiLux 4000SL, which acts as a regular reminder of Toyota Australia’s attempt more than a decade ago to tempt newer and younger customers to the brand. Or, as the company might as well have also said: to eradicate the disparaging “white goods on wheels” comments associated with its cars...
