Just before the end of the year, Toyota teased everyone with a snapshot of the next-generation Camry and while the Internet broke out in excitement, I was distracted trying to understand the point of the Mannequin Challenge… Seriously, why did this thing catch on?! I digress, according to Digital Trends, the next-generation Camry is a sleek & sporty departure from Camry’s-past:
While the teaser only shows a sliver of the car,
we can see cues like thin LED taillights, a trunk-mounted spoiler, strong and swooping character lines, fake rear air vents, and large wheels
Styling aside, the new Camry will ride on the same modular platform that underpins the Prius – which is great news, considering that chassis is one of the best parts of the Prius – and will use both 2.5-liter four-cylinder and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. There are also rumors of a 3.5-liter, V6-powered TRD Camry to rival Ford’s Fusion Sport. The Camry line-p will be rounded out by a hybrid version due in 2018.
The Camry is set to premiere at the Detroit International Auto Show which runs from January 8-12. I’ll be updating the blog regularly this month with news coming from the Detroit Auto Show!!
