Toyota Camry Turbo Plans Widely Misunderstood To Avoid Disappointment

By  | 

Toyota and turbochargers are two things that don’t blend well and this is why we are surprised to see new reports claiming on a mass transition to turbocharged engines for the vehicles from the Japanese carmaker.

It was mentioned that Toyota is now looking to greatly improve fuel economy and power by way of rival Honda and that is through having revolutionary turbocharged engines. The move will start with the next-gen Camry, which is expected to arrive in 2020.

Well, after looking up at Toyota’s press release, we can confirm that this is a massive misunderstanding. Toyota has got no intentions to turbocharge their mills at all. The carmaker is merely hoping to extend its forced induction sabbatical.

This is a move to meet the more stringent fuel economy standards including using lightweight materials rather than Toyota adopting turbocharging mills. In other words, Toyota is avoiding turbochargers, which is quite disappointing considering their dull nature.

    There seems to be a few misunderstandings here. First, the next generation Camry comes out this fall as a 2018 model year. Second, when Toyota uses turbos they work very well. I.E. Supra, Mr2, Celica All-Trac/GT FOUR, Soarer.
