With the current generation of Toyota Camry being in the market since 2011, its rather dated tenure makes the model ripe for a new model come next year. Following this teaser tail light photo, it appears Toyota will be updating the Camry as an all-new model for the 2018 model year.
The new Camry, set to make its reveal at the North America International Auto Show (NAIAS), will be one of three parts of Toyota’s display. Apart from a display from Toyota, Lexus will have a press conference and there will be a ‘tech showcase’ as well.
Apart from this image, no official details have been shed regarding the new Camry. Judging from the design cues of the tail lights, we may likely see a more aggressive profile for the whole car’s design.
Here's a set of photos snapped by our spies of a camouflaged 2018 Camry conducting road tests.
Under the hood we’ll probably find a 2.5-liter four cylinder for the base model, with a 2.0L turbocharged four cylinder powerplant option available for higher trims. We may find that powerplant in a performance-oriented variant of the Camry as well. As of today there is still no word regarding the return of the V6 motor to the Camry’s lineup, but a hybrid powertrain is in the cards.
The new Toyota Camry will make its debut at NAIAS in January, with units to be first released by late 2017 or early 2018.
