Joining The Dark Side: New 2022 Toyota Camry Trim Level Arrives
It seems the best-selling midsize sedan in America is growing. A new trim level has been added to the 2022 Toyota Camry lineup.
One that should provide consumers with a nice balance between efficiency, affordability, and fun.
I watched a great video review by Ben Hardy (subscribe to his YouTube channel here) while he was at Larry H. Miller Toyota Murray in Utah (their website here). Based on this, I thought readers might enjoy hearing about the latest Toyota Camry trim.
2022 Camry Hybrid Nightshade
Looking for something fun to drive that can get you up to 47mpg? Consider the all-new 2022 Toyota Camry Hybrid Nightshade.
Based on Camry SE, the Hybrid Nightshade (or Camry Nightshade Hybrid as some may call it) adds in multiple, black-accented features. In other words, Camry has been “Nightshaded.”
Plan to see the following as standard equipment: black front grille with sport mesh inserts, black mirror caps, black shark fin antenna, black rear spoiler, black window molding, black exterior door handles, and black rear badges.
Camry is growing stronger in The Dark Side.
Plus, 18-inch black alloy wheels are perhaps the main exterior attraction.
Seating is a combination of black SofTex with black and gray fabric inserts.
