Does the 2013 Toyota Camry SE Have an Upgraded Stereo?

By Rick Popely  on November 30, 2013 "I noticed the XLE trim has the JBL stereo. What does that mean?"

John N. A 10-speaker sound system with speakers made by JBL, an American audio company that is a unit of Harman International Industries, is available on the 2013 Toyota Camry SE and XLE models, though with some differences.

On the 2013 Camry, the four-cylinder SE and XLE models have a standard six-speaker sound system (not JBL branded) and a 6.1-inch touch-screen. A package that adds navigation, Toyota's Entune multimedia system, satellite and HD radio, and other capabilities is a $1,050 option. In addition, the XLE four-cylinder is available with a system that includes all that plus 10 JBL speakers (with a subwoofer and amplifier) for $1,700.

The six-speaker system with navigation, Entune and the other features is standard on the SE V-6 and XLE V-6 models. On the SE V-6, the JBL speakers are a $650 option. The JBL system also is optional on the XLE V-6, but it includes a 7-inch touch-screen and a premium navigation system, and the price jumps to $1,620.
