Toyota Camry SE Sport Limited Edition Model Released

Toyota has just announced a new limited production model of the four-cylinder, Camry SE, that offers some legitimate sporting upgrades from the base model.

The Camry SE already comes with some serious suspension upgrades which is perhaps why the Limited Sport Edition (SLE) is basically a paint and wheels upgrade over the standard 2.5 SE. It should also be mentioned that the limited production version of this car is offered with a Blizzard Pearl paint job for a only a certain period of time.

The Camry SE Sport Limited Edition, is not a package for the base SE but it’s own trim model. A base Camry SE with the 2.5 liter engine sports 178hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. It also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters. There is of course a body kit and 17-inch rims, wrapped in low-profile Bridgestone Turanza tires, but the real story is the suspension ugrades. The shocks and springs are stiffer,  and under the hood a strut-tower braces smiles at you. A cross-brace is also added in the trunk which prohibits the rear seats from folding down.

To develop the SE Sport Limited Edition, Toyota looked to the options list for the base SE, and basically added an already available  $2,405 options package. It adds an 8-way power seat, a sunroof, and a touchscreen navigation/audio system that features Entune.

That package is the essence of the Sport Limited Edition model’s upgrades. The only other upgrade on the car is the 18 inch alloys from the V6 SE Camry. The SLE is priced at $25,995, representing an increase of $370 over a comparably equipped SE. Meaning that this limited edition basically seems to be a $370 charge for the 18-inch rims from a V6 SE.

The Blizzard Pearl paint will only be available on Camry SE sedans that are built from September 12 to November 12. The Sport Limited Edition is also available in Barcelona Red and Attitude Black. Those colours are already in production and do not have a planned cancellation date.

Now, the real question is how much for a set of used V6 Camry SE rims on Toyota Nation?

Editor’s Correction: The backseat does fold for 2012.

    Your information about the rear cross-brace is outdated. You couldn’t fold the seats down on the 2007-2011 Camry SE. They lowered the cross-brace in the redesigned 2012 model so that the seats CAN be folded. Not a big deal, but worth mentioning.

    Truth. But autoguide always seems to miss the little details that people like to know about.

    So who will be the first to get the part number for the brace and the strut bar!?

    The car is what it is, a Camry with a more aggressive look and all the accessories that you would want. We are not going to set the world on fire with this sport model but it does make a great comuter vehicle that gets 35mpg on the highway and looks good doing it. Attitude black, through on some dark window tint and there you have it !!! Took the test drive and was somewhat impressed. Handles well, nice comfortable seats, quiet and well behaved going down the highway at 100mph….. good stereo/information center, dash..  I bought it !

    Um, except, you know, it also doesn’t have that V6

    71 year old grandmother here. Bought the attitude black model and loving the sporty look, leather double dash, screen that tells me who is singing my favorite country song, comfort black leather seats with silver cloth inserts, great on ice and snow (truly tested this month-March 2013), blue tooth which I had to learn about (easy) and what a comfortable ride for these old bones. LOVE MY CAMRY!
