2001 Toyota Camry Overview

Perhaps because it was due for a redesign in 2002, not much changed for the 2001 Toyota Camry. The only update was the inclusion of the Gallery Series for the LE, which included features like two-tone paint and seat fabric, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, chrome accents and special badging.

The 2001 Toyota Camry came in three trim levels: the base CE, the midlevel LE and the higher-end XLE. All came standard with a four-cylinder, 2.2-liter, 133 horsepower engine and were available with a V6, 194 horsepower engine. Fuel economy is about 20 to 30 miles per gallon, depending on the engine.

The 2001 Toyota Camry continued the model's streak of being a best selling car. Once again, major complaints centered around the fact that the 2001 Camry, though a good car, is boring to look at and boring to drive. Still, the Camry earned many loyal fans in 2001, who said quality and dependability were their favorite things about the Camry.
