1989 Toyota Camry

The 1989 Toyota Camry was mostly unchanged from the previous year, when Toyota introduced a new engine option: a 2.5-liter V6 with 153 horsepower and double-overhead cams. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine was still available as well. The only change for the '89 Camry was that the All Trac all wheel drive system became available in with the automatic transmission as well as the manual.

The 1989 Toyota Camry was available as a four-door station wagon or sedan. The 1989 Toyota Camry was available in several trims, which included the base model, the DLX, the DLX V6, the DLX All Trac, the LE, the LE V6 and the LE All Trac. The 1989 Toyota Camry gets between 20 and 30 mpg for fuel economy, depending on the engine.

Drivers of the 1989 Toyota Camry note that with features like hand-cranked windows and no air conditioning, their cars are somewhat bare-bones and not very plush. But drivers also frequently compare their 1989 Camrys to the Energizer Bunny and are still driving them even today.
