1987 Toyota Camry Overview

Toyota completely redesigned the Camry for 1987, ushering in the second generation of America's current best-selling sedan. The car's look evolved into a sleeker, more updated style, although it still looked conservative. Toyota abandoned the hatchback and introduced a Camry station wagon.

By reducing road noise and vibration, Toyota began to distinguish the 1987 Camry as a car for people who didn't want to really notice their cars and only wanted a smooth, quiet, unremarkable ride, unlike its competitor the Honda Accord, which offered the driver more "road feel" and interaction.

The 1987 Camry still came with a 2.0 liter, four-cylinder engine, but this time boasted 115 horsepower, due to its new 16-valve twin cam engine. For the first time, the 1987 Camry was available in three trim levels: base, the DLX and the more upscale LE. Fuel economy for the 1987 Toyota Camry was approximately 29 miles per gallon.
