DETROIT -- I spoke to Jill Decker, Product Specialist at Toyota.

She notes that this is the 2008 model of the Toyota Camry which was launched in May 2007. The estimated price starts at $25,900 to $31,000. It is manufactured in Georgetown, Kentucky and in Japan. The Camry was the first hybrid built in the United States.

It is the longest passenger cruising vehicle and it drives 650 miles on a tank of gas. The hybrid has a gas and electric motor and battery working in synergy. It has a 2.4 liter, 4-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor with 650 volts of power. This vehicle gets 34 mpg on the highway and 33 mph in the city. At 25 mph the gas and electric motor kicks in together, Decker said.

It has a 8-year 100,000 mile warranty on the battery, 3-year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and 5-year 60,000 mile warranty on the powertrain.

The Camry has 7 airbags including the driver knee airbag. It also has an information system on the dash letting you know how charged the battery is and the fuel economy.

"The design features are the same as 2007, nothing has changed much. The target segment is everybody. All age groups like to drive the Camry," Decker said.
