Noteworthy 2022 Toyota Camry Hybrid Has Incredible Fuel Economy Specs

If you are considering a new hybrid for the 2022 model year, take a look at the Toyota Camry Hybrid. I was blown away by the fuel economy specs and some other cool features.


2022 is a new start for the Toyota Camry Hybrid. Its refreshed body and far more aggressive styling. The thing that really caught my eye is what the fuel economy specs are. I have those numbers and more on in this article.

Toyota hybrids are known for their fuel economy. Albeit, the first-generation Toyota Camry hybrid was not much to talk about. Still, this new one certainly takes the cake.

An astounding 51/53/52 (City/Hwy/Cmbd) is more than I expected from a larger sedan. Toyota hybrids have now been on the market for over 20 years. In that time, we have seen some remarkable improvements with hybrid technology.

It should not come as a surprise to me that Toyota improved Camry (and all the hybrid lineup) this much, but somehow it does.

Other Notable Features
Cost is always something to consider when looking into buying a new hybrid vs. a gasoline counterpart. The Camry Hybrid does cost a little over $2,000 more. However, you almost get twice the fuel economy, and with gas at $4.00 a gallon, going hybrid makes sense.

Camry offers more options than ever before with available AWD and the performance XSE V6 model boasting a stellar 301 hp. Other 4 cylinder models range in hp from 176 to 205 depending on the trim. The hybrid system does boast the highest rating on the 4 cylinder platform at 208 hp.

More options, more power, and of course, better fuel economy make the new Camry and the Hybrid version a very outstanding choice when looking for a new hybrid.

I hope to soon get out and drive one, so I can report back on the stellar build quality of Toyota and the superior hybrid technology they sell.

Thank you all for reading, and remember Today's Adventure is Tomorrow's Story.

Isn't that the same as the 2021 model for fuel efficiency? When I did those calculations it took 5-7 years to pay off the price difference with the gasoline counter part (@ $3.00/gal in Florida). This doesn't sound so amazing

You can also think of it as a hedge against rising gas prices. If prices go up, the time to pay off the price difference will come around sooner. Of course the opposite is true, but how much lower than $3.00 a gallon could prices go? There is a hard bottom for gas prices, but no limit on price increases. Since this car will last for 10+ years, it will almost always pay for the hybrid option unless you sell early. I drive a 2008 Camry Hybrid and my current tank average is 38.5 MPG…so what doesn’t sound so amazing is an increase of only 15 MPG in 13 years of development.

Purchased a 2020 Camry Hybrid LE in December 2020 after my 2007 Camry Hybrid was totaled in an Accident. Minor issues like seat cushion comfort and lack of rear seat air vents not withstanding, I am getting 53 mpg in my everyday driving. Was considering trading this in for an XLE or a model with more features, but I'm a year away from paying for this Baby and the gas mileage is better than I expected. Kudos to Toyota, and even though the 2022 is attractive, I'll stick with what I got.

LoL. What did the author think about the 2019 through 2021 Toyota Camry hybrid fuel economy, because it is the exact same as the 2022 MPG. Does nobody fact check these people/bots anymore? Oh well, I'll do your DD for you, for a nominal fee. Bring on the AI!

Toyota has a long way to go to match my 2015 Chevy Volt which has so far averaged 89mpg over its 43k working life.

The Chevy Volt can't compare. Try taking the Volt on a long road trip, the Camry Hybrid will beat it's fuel mileage. One more thing...the Camry Hybrid won't be broken down along side the road like your Chevy. LOL
