Default Brass or aluminium radiator?

My old 1995 camry with I4, 2.2L engine has
a brass radiator. I was curious, what kind
of radiator do they put in new 2006 camrys ?

Never seen copper save for Ford Model-T! Copper is orange and brass is gold
color. My 03 Camry is plastic (argh) top and bottom and Aluminum
fins/cooling area.

My 1994 has an aluminum radiator.
Sounds like yours was replaced by an after market substitute.
The original had plastic upper and lower tanks and all aluminum
construction.
I have never owned a car that stayed cool as well as this one
regardless of conditions.
I suspect the radiator is oversized for the requirements to minimize
the electric fans cycling on.
Saw a neighbor's four cylinder Honda once and the radiator was much,
much smaller.
Aluminum will radiate heat very quickly, and is also lighter in weight.
