The 2020 Toyota Camry will be available with all-wheel drive and so will the 2021 Toyota Avalon.
- All-wheel drive will be optional on both 2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Toyota Avalon
- Will be an available stand-alone option
- TNGA technology shared with Toyota RAV4
- First AWD Camry since 1991
The Toyota Camry will once again be available with all-wheel drive. Indeed, Toyota announced today that the 2020 Camry will offer AWD as a standalone option on its LE, XLE, SE, and XSE trims. The 2021 Toyota Avalon will also offer all-wheel traction.
No word yet on a possible hybrid Toyota Camry with AWD.
The 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine developing 202 horsepower (205 hp on the Camry XSE and Avalon AWD) will be the sole engine available with all-wheel drive. The V6 will retain FWD motivation.
The all-wheel drive system for the new 2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Avalon comes from the 2019 Toyota RAV4. It features Toyota’s Dynamic Torque Control AWD system can disengage the differential to save fuel when all-wheel drive isn’t needed.
Both new AWD models will share many other components with the RAV4 SUV including the engine, transmission, transfer case and rear differential.
2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Toyota Avalon all-wheel drive models will feature an “AWD” badge on the trunk lid to differentiate them from FWD models.
By adding AWD, the new Camry will be able to compete more closely with the new Nissan Altima unveiled last year with AWD. The Subaru Legacy offers standard all-wheel drive and was redesigned for 2020. As for the Toyota Avalon, it’s one of the few full-size sedans to come with AWD.
Pricing for the Toyota Camry AWD option hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, nor has its availability for the Camry Hybrid.
