The Japanese automaker is diligently preparing for the model generation changeover of the popular Camry – to be showcased for the first time during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
The ongoing Camry has been around since 2011 and it was thoroughly updated in 2014 to make the same impact on the North American market as before. At the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, the company will present the new generation, most likely coming out as a 2018 model year. The new Camry – a major release for the automaker in the United States – at NAIAS the company has also announced a Lexus press conference and a “tech showcase,” though the latter is shrouded in mystery. There aren’t any details to talk about the design of the Camry save for the released teaser image, but judging by the spy shots on the Internet we’re in for a polarizing new front end, more dynamic head and taillights as well as quad exhaust tips.
The motivation for the Camry should be provided by the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine as the base option, followed by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with more power and possibly a V6 carryover. Of course, the hybrid will live on, and the model is expected to reach dealerships late next year as a 2018 model year.
