For the first time since 1991, the Toyota Camry will be available with an all-wheel-drive drivetrain. Toyota is giving drivers an even better grip on the road with the Toyota-developed Dynamic Torque Control AWD system that will soon be available on Camry LE, XLE, SE, and XSE trim grades. Originally, there was no plan set for the 2020 Toyota Camry to offer an AWD option. However, with the rising demand for AWD vehicles Toyota decided to make it happen and give drivers what they wanted.
The 2020 Toyota Camry AWD will begin to hit dealership lots in early spring of 2020 and the AWD offering will be exclusive to North American dealerships. Along with the AWD drivetrain, the Camry AWD is bringing with it additional standard and available features that make this vehicle more than worth the wait.

Beneath the hood of the 2020 Toyota Camry AWD is a high-efficiency 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission. Equipped with the Dynamic Torque Control AWD system, the Camry AWD LE, XLE, and SE trim grades generate 202 horsepower and the Camry AWD XSE generates 205 horsepower.
The Dynamic Torque Control AWD system found in the 2020 Toyota Camry AWD offers better traction on the road to provide improved performance during less-than-ideal weather conditions. The AWD system found in these Camry models can direct up to 50 percent of the engine’s torque to the vehicle’s rear wheels to help compensate for any slippage occurring at the front wheels. When AWD isn’t needed, the system can disengage to prioritize fuel efficiency, then re-engage in an instant if the system is needed again.
The AWD system in the Camry AWD does not take away from any space throughout the cabin or cargo area. The Camry AWD is 165 pounds heavier than its FWD counterpart and customers can expect to find a similar ride experience as that of the FWD Camry.
