2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid travels for Wildlife and B.A.S.S.

Camry SE hybrid goes to the SEWE gala at Charleston Place
The redesigned Toyota Camry comes in a hybrid model that really knows how to stretch the gas mileage out a LONG way. This car is not on the same level as the Toyota Avalon hybrid, since it is a good bit smaller and lighter with less bells and whistles. However, the car has some serious pep when you step on the gas and take it from eco mode into power drive.

Camry and Tundra
First up for the Camry that was listed as blue in color was the Dock Dogs at Brittlebank Park, the most dog-friendly portion of the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition held in Charleston over Valentine's weekend. The cold February winds howled as the two-tank competition began on Friday and finished up Sunday afa'noon. I was able to find a parking space for my compact Camry underneath the sagging limbs of a live oak tree, where an SUV like the Highlander had no chance of sneaking in.
Cool sponsorship with B.A.S.S.

The 2015 Camry hybrid SE sedan lists at $27,995 but has additions that ran it up to $32,987. These include the EnTune premium audio with satellite radio and navigation features. A power moonroof, a very cool illuminated Door Well and the remote start option. The 40 miles per gallon factoid hides the fact that this car is real stingy with gasoline. The monroney info states the the owner will save $4500 in fuel costs over five years, which is GOOD NEWS!

Love this truck at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic
While the Camry is FUN to drive, it is most likely not for families with grown kids or for folks with dogs that need at least some transport. This car color was listed as blue, but the man on the street tends to say it looks more like purple. Well this purple sedan is powered with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that has the pep and pizazz necessary to dash through traffic better than the rest. Only time will tell how the Camry hybrid holds up in the maintenance category, but the Toyota track record for such issues is very good.
