2007 Toyota Camry

    You can only do this using the new voice recognition input method.
  • So what version of the NAV system comes in the 2007 Camry, and what are its specs? Is there additional information on it anywhere?

    Thanks -

    If I were you I'd wait about a week or two and see if the styling still is so exciting. A Camry over a TL is a big big jump to make logically. I mean with the TL only $3K more than a Camry, it is hard for me to swallow buying the Camry. Toyota is good but Aacura is in general better. The material quality, the features, the resale value, the attention to detail. The Camry is new so it may have ALOT of new appeal but once it wheres off, you'll be left with a very expensive family sedan versus a bargain of a luxury car.

    At least, it's a step in the right direction. I wish it allowed you full function while the car is in motion.

    Interesting thread, I have not heard a peep from my salesman ever since he said he could order me a v6 xle for 28.5K. LaLaLa. I also don't like the xle wood, too light. I personally can't get excited about the car. Somebody take my wife, please... Can get a TL nav for 34k but no deals on financing...or Infinity is offering 1.95 financing on g35's. I can get a 39k g35x for 36k. the money is almost free. A grand over 3 years. If you don't mind a $1000 a month car payment...People are right, you want a camry, wait 3 months, go pick one you like. Don't get caught up in the new car hype. This week they are only going to make 6500 of them. Duh.

    I don't really understand how so many people are comparing Acura to Toyota :confuse: . Its like comparing Hyundai to Infinity. Two completely different classes of cars. If you are going to compare Acura to a Toyota product in all fairness it would have to be compared to Lexus.

    Show me prices. Show me a comparably equipped Camry is that is only 3K less than a TL.

    [In Philly] Looking on, I see a Camry XLE V6 plus heated seats, VSC, floormats, Smart Key with an MSRP $31,039 and a selling price of $29,580.

    An Acura TL + NAV is $35,940, with selling price of $33,819.

    MSRP difference is $4901, and selling price difference is $4239, figures about half again as much as $3000.

    Still, the two are aimed at different markets, and different segments in that market. And both have features the other one lacks; its not REALLY as if one is better or worse equipped than the other.

    The Camry SE V6 with everything I wanted will be in to teh dealer in about 2 weeks. I was able to catch it prior to leaving the factory and add some stuff for 'port installation'. I was looking at the TL, and am very happy to find that the Camry of choice for me is $3k less and jsut as satisying. Bluetooth, NAV, MP3 capability, nice drivetrain and engine, good value. Even though the TL is considered an Entry Luxo sedan, the redesigned Camry isn't that far off. More Lex and Toy. ;)

    There can only be one reason, Toyota did a pretty good job with this new Camry. My personal believe has always been that Acura was one notch lower than Lexus and a little higher than Toyota. My opinion has only been reinforced after seeing the new Camry at the local dealer last night. This is personal observation. I do not wish to offend anyone. It's no wonder Toyota expects to sell 500,000 annually. The only problem is it will seem like everyone has one.

    The TL also has dual climate control and a more luxurious interior, plus a 4-year 50,000 mile warranty. Some people have been getting the TL, with NAV, in the $32,000 range. Still, the SE is a great bargain.
  • iwantatliwantatl Posts: 25
    I am not comparing a Camry to a TL. I just happen to be looking at both. I can get what I want in a TL, ie: and I pay $5k more vs. trying to find a Camry. I just didn't think it would be that much of an [non-permissible content removed] pain to get a new Camry. In St. Louis we have 2 Acura dealers. They both quote the same price $34k nav $32k no nav. I wish I could get a TL nav for $32k.
    Like I said, the Camry is nice, but it is still a Camry. No offense....

    I'd be very interested to see if you are able to order what you want in the XLE.

    I'm trying to get XLE 4SP with NAV, and with the hassle factor in availability, and now considering skipping the NAV (paying about $25K), buying XLE V6 with NAV plus obligatory extras (would pay about $29K), or even perhaps the 2006 Avalon XLS with NAV ($32K) (I'd buy an SE with NAV, but it does not have climate control) (These are Fitzmall prices).

    I see Honda Accord has the NAV in 4 cly, and could be purchsed for $26K. I hope Toyota makes NAV more available.
  • alpha01alpha01 Posts: 4,747
    The car has only been out for a week, folks. Toyota's going to produce a lot of Camrys, not all combinations are available just yet, even if your region will be ordering them in the future.

    I received a quote of 32.5k for Acura 2006 + Navi

    where do you live?
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    I have been quoted $300, $400, $500, and $600 over dealer invoice in the Seattle/Tacoma area.

    One dealer said they were selling theirs for $595 over MSRP. HA!!!!!!!!!

    Haven't heard from the Costco dealer yet but doubt they can beat $300 over invoice.

    Dealers say I should get a special order car within 5 weeks from order. They will reconfigure a car they have in the queue to what my specs are.

    Will order manana.

    I was a few days from putting a deposit on a 2006 Acura TL,

    What about the absence of H.I.D. Bi-Xenon lights on the new Camry? In Canada there is also no navigation available. Also, no dual zone climate control on the SE.

    Three serious flaws IMO. The new Camry is simply not in the same class as the Acura TL.
  • fredvhfredvh Posts: 854
    When people are talking invoice here are we really talking invoice(from kbb or edmunds) PLUS the TDA fee because apparently the TDA fee shows on the dealer invoice as a valid amount when a dealer shows you the dealer invoice? Comments or questions?
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    Manufacturers invoice price + Advertising Cost = Dealers Invoice.

    In the Pac NW, that advertising number is $514.

    At Fitzmall, it calculates to be $457.

    Thought I wanted the Bisque (tan) interior but saw one on a Barcelona Red XLE today.

    Looked terrible because the seats are tan (didn't look at the door panels) but everything else (console, dash, carpet) is the same as on the Ash (gray) interior.

    As if the wrong seats had been dropped into the car.

    Disappointing so I will go with Ash Leather.

    "The new Camry is simply not in the same class as the Acura TL."

    Maybe not the Camry SE. However, the XLE might be (or pretty darn close). In reality the Camry is not suppose to be in the same class. It's a mass produced vehicle attempting to satisfy what many average American (and some Canadian) buyers would like to purchase. The TL does not fall in that category (nor should it). I think it's a complement to Toyota that some are actually comparing it to the TL (and not the Accord). What may appear as a flaw is likely a marketing strategy by Toyota. The bottom line is simple, it's your money and choice.
  • mackabeemackabee Posts: 4,709
    You may want to contact Thompson Toyota or Tri County Toyota in Pennsylvania. They each have one 4 cylinder XLE with nav, leather, heated seats, vehicle stability control, floor mats, for $28,544.00 and $28,758.00 respectively. The second one has the Z1 package, the first one the CF option. Aloe green and Black. Good luck in trying to get either of these two cars from these dealers. They are either pre-ordered for the GM's wife's demos or have already been pre-sold. Tell them Mackabee sent you!
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    What a deal!!!!!!!!!

    $26,000 - 26,200 for these in Seattle area.
  • mackabeemackabee Posts: 4,709
    Easy njerald. I was quoting MSRP's. It's up to tidewater to negotiate his price. If that's what they are going for in Seattle knock yourself out and buy one. I'm just providing some information since tidewater is in my area.
  • bartalk3bartalk3 Posts: 692
    If youwantaTL, go to Chicago. It's much more competitive there than St. Louis.
  • tidewatertidewater Posts: 69
    I do appreciate your passing on the info on those two Camrys Mackabee. From the option descriptions, it sounds like option combination #3 (in Seattle, Wash region) from 'build your vehicle'. I actually heard from another local dealer there were two XLE 4SP with NAV in our region (1 Black 1 White). Since there are only two XLE's 4SP in the entire region currently, I think it'd be nearly impossible for me to get such a current car directly from a dealer. Hence, I'll probably special order.

    I am a fairly slow buyer, and will probably wait around a few more weeks before placing an order. Other than that one brief visit to a local dealer, I have not really pursued this. From the comments posted here, I believe that I will be able to get the car I want for around $500 to $600 above invoice.

    I am thrilled with all the new features on the new 2007!

    Right now I'm thinking:
    Camry XLE 4SP, VSC, Heated & Leather Seats, NAV,
    Desert Sand if the beige interior looks good.
    I would prefer to get non-heated cloth seats, but I'm guessing that Toyota will not provide that configuration.
    Would like to avoid the Z1 package

    As you can tell, I from the Tidewater area, like yourself.

    You must be thrilled njerald!

    Good job on your quotes. My guess is that numerous people on the boards are using the pricing information that you just came up with. As in my last post, I'd like to get an XLE 4SP configured under the Washington region Option #3.

    Can I ask you one more time which model/configuration/color you are going to order?

    Now I hope your order goes smoothly, and something doesn't go wrong during that time while waiting for the order, and that you don't have to pay any unreasonable doc fees or prep fees. I like to deal with someone where I'm very confident the sale transaction will go perfectly smoothly.

    Congrats on getting a good deal rolling!

    Hey njerald,

    Do you think the Bisque is that bad?

    I wanted the Bisque (tan interior) because I getting very tired of the grey, and I just don't see how the yellow wood is going to go with the grey. I sat in a 2006 Avalon with a tan interior - I liked it better than grey. I was also told that the Avalon's wood trim color (which I think looks great) is also same color on the 2007 Camry (This seems untrue and I think Camry wood is lighter - more yellow).

    Here is Grey/wood interior 2007 XLE
