Buying a 2019 Toyota Camry is not much different from buying a new one. There are five different trim levels to choose from: L, LE, XLE, SE and XSE. The first three trim levels are the most “normal” Camry versions, while the last two (SE and XSE) are the sportiest variants. Regardless of trim level, every 2019 Camry comes with a 203-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, reports Autotrader.
However, you can find a larger 305-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine in the SE and XSE trim levels if you want more power. But if fuel efficiency is your main priority, the base engine is the best choice because it can achieve 32 mpg in combined driving. The V6 engine, on the other hand, can get a combined fuel rating of 26 mpg. It’s also worth noting that while the Camry comes standard in front-wheel-drive form, an all-wheel-drive configuration can also be found.
The 2019 Toyota Camry L is well equipped
If you want to get the most out of your budget for a used Camry, the base L model can provide that. The entry-level version comes standard with 16-inch wheels, a 7-inch infotainment screen, six-speaker audio system, Apple Carplay and Bluetooth. There was even an option for a Convenience Package that includes push-button start, keyless entry and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
In terms of safety, every 2019 Camry comes standard with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, high beam assist and adaptive cruise control. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert features were optional.
The 2019 Camry LE came with some minor upgrades
Along with the Camry LE trim upgrade comes a few upgrades over the base model. The Camry LE adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, an 8-way power driver’s seat and an anti-theft system. Other options include a dual-zone climate control system, wireless phone charger and power sunroof.
The Camry XLE offers more luxurious touches
If you can find a Camry XLE, you’ll be treated to more premium features like a 10-inch head-up display, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, leather seats and upgraded LED exterior lights. An optional JBL premium audio system, surround-view camera and navigation system are also available.
Camry SE and XSE add some sporty touches
If you want a sporty touch from your Camry, look for an SE trim level. This variant features black 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, single-zone climate control, and a black mesh front grille. If you want everything the SE offers, but fancy a few of the luxurious touches of the XLE trim, then the XSE trim level is the way to go.
How much does a 2019 Toyota Camry cost?
Looking nationwide at 2019 Toyota Camry models for sale, you can expect to pay between $15,000 and $25,000 for one depending on the trim level you choose. Of course, the condition, mileage and location of the car can also play a role. So don’t be too surprised if you find some selling for close to $30,000 in some areas.
