Toronto, Ontario – Toyota Canada has announced a price reduction for the 2009 Camry, which will be offered in five models with a starting price of $23,400. The 2008 Camry started at $25,900.

“The Camry is one of North America’s most popular passenger cars, and represents the quality, safety and comfort that Canadians associate most with Toyota,” said Tony Wearing, Managing Director of Toyota Canada Inc. “For the 2009 model year, we’ve added even more standard equipment, including Toyota’s Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control on most models, and new options packages. As part of our commitment to provide Canadians with transparent and consistent value, we’ve also introduced the 2009 Camry with a starting MSRP of $23,400.”

As with 2008 models, 2009 Camrys will be available as the LE, SE (in manual or automatic), LE V6, SE V6 and the XLE V6. All come standard with numerous features, including CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary jack and wheel-mounted audio controls, air conditioning, power locks with keyless entry, power windows with driver’s side auto-down, Optitron electronic gauges, silver-accented interior trim, dual vanity mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering column, cruise control, heated mirrors and variable intermittent wipers.

Pricing for the 2009 Camry ranges from $23,400 to $25,435 for four-cylinder models, and $28,235 to $35,020 for V6 models. That compares with 2008 Camry prices from $25,900 to $28,050 for four-cylinder models, and $29,500 to $37,525 for V6 models.
