Performance Specs and Fuel Economy Scores


Toyota continues to equip the 2020 Camry with one of two powertrains. The base model will have a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will produce 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The XSE trim uses the same engine, but with different tuning that will produce a few extra horsepower and slightly more torque. A naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine is also available with the 2020 Camry. This power plant will also use the eight-speed automatic but will make 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. A 2020 Camry with the four-cylinder engine can record up to 29 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. The V-6 engine will deliver 22 mpg in the city and more than 30 mpg on the highway.

The 2020 Nissan Altima also offers two four-cylinder engine options. Entry-level versions will also use a 2.5-liter power plant that will produce a little more than 180 horsepower. Even with this disparity in performance output, the 2020 Altima doesn’t quite match the fuel economy scores demonstrated by the 2020 Camry. Nissan buyers can also choose a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that will make less power than the V-6-powered Camry as well as fuel economy scores within a couple of points of the popular Toyota sedan.
