My own personal opinion is that the four cylinder is easier to service
and for that reason alone that would be my choice.
If you ever change your own spark plugs, for example, you'll be glad.
I suppose if you go to the dealer for all service, that wouldn't make
much difference.
The six will always have more power because the engine displacement is
larger.
The four is quite efficient these days with variable valve timing. Just
drive both and decide for yourself. Most people find the four adequate.
You left out the hybrid right? For 2007 my understanding is that you
could choose 6 cyl., 4 cyl. or hybrid.

Today's 4 cyl engines are becoming very powerful and have come within
30-40 horsepower of the V6 engine. They are also easier and cheaper to
service. The main problem right now is the new transmission Toyota
introduced for the 2007 may skip gears because they reduced 20% of the
parts probably. They claim it's only a small number, but you never
know.

I would personally wait a little longer on a new model for the problems
to work out.

Toyota Motor Co. has found what it calls a minor problem with the
transmissions in early models of the 2007 Camry.

In a small number of vehicles, the transmissions could skip gears.
Toyota anticipates the problem could affect 160 of the 32,000 Camrys
sold in March and April, Toyota spokeswoman Allison Takahasi said.

Toyota engineers have pinpointed the problem so it doesn't affect
future Camrys, she said. "They're aware of this and fixed it on the
transmissions being produced now," Takahasi said.

So far, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received
one complaint about the issue. The federal agency has not started an
investigation or asked for a recall.

The Camry, made in Georgetown, Ky., is the best-selling car in the
United States. The vehicle was redesigned for the 2007 model year.

Camry buyers who think their vehicle might be affected should contact
their dealer or call Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331.

Unless you like a lot of power, the Toyota 4 cylinder has more than adequate
power for most applications except perhaps towing a caravan (which is insane
anyway;-).

Of all the 4 cylinder engines I;ve driven, the Camry 4 is the smoothest,
widest in terms of torque at low revs and good power increase if you are
prepared to hold it gear and let it rev-out to 4-5000 rpm before shifting up
manually. plus the 4 gets excellent economy. No contest, unless you like
lots of power.
