v4 vs. V6
By Rich on
2011 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Having owned a 2007 Camry LE with the V6 I must say how wonderfully surprised I was when I purchased a 2011 XLE 4. Plenty zippy and wonderful on the freeway. First tank full of gas 28 MPG with the V6 on the same route just 23 Mpg. Highway blows away the 32 MPG estimate and this at 70 MPH. This time Toyota under-promises and over delivers. Leather seats excellent and ride may be cushy but I love it after a hectic day of work. The JBL sound is crystal clear and the speakers are dynamic. If your thinking V6 think again and drive the V4. In a Venza the difference is pronounced because of the weight difference. In the Camry quiet, smooth and MPG, trump 0 to 60.
The mileage. Five miles per gallon increase vs the V6 is money in my pocket and nearly 100 gallons of gas saved annually. Do the math the higher the gas price the more you save. Also the Blue Ribbon metallic paint job is a real sleeper. When the sun hits it the car gleams.
None for the price point and I lease the deal for the price was excellent.
