For the ’07 model year, Toyota says it has done one of its most expensive mid-year changes to date for the Camry Solara.
Changes include a redesign of the grille and front and rear bumpers; the addition of new halogen headlamps and light-emitting diode taillamps; high-intensity discharge lamps for the Sport grade, as well as 17-in. alloy wheels and side rocker molding; and interior changes such as a 6-disc, MP3-capable audio system with auxiliary jack; Bluetooth hands-free calling (SLE trim); and seat-mounted side curtain airbags (not available on the convertible models).
However, horsepower has dropped, due to revised Society of Automotive Engineers testing standards, from 157 to 155 for the 2.4L 4-cyl. base engine, and to 210 from 255 for the 3.3L V-6 mill.
