The Camry won its place in the history books as it managed to sell more than 10 million units Worldwide while being a simple yet stylish choice ever since it was released. The new model is no exception, and while it may not be the best out there, it offers a nice balance between everything with a bold and modern design, efficient and powerful engines and an excellent interior to be in. While a new model hasn’t been announced just yet, rumors coming from a Toyota insider say that the 2017 Toyota Camry will be an entirely new car that will surprise many people.
We only hope that the car will manage to surprise us in a positive manner as the current model wasn’t all that great from the start. So far we know that the new sedan will be using Toyota’s new modular platform which first debuted on the Prius.

This will allow them to build a similar car in terms of size and comfort while being up to 15 to 20% lighter than before. Another benefit is that it will need less power to be just as fast, and a hybrid model will certainly further improve fuel efficiency.
2017 Toyota Camry Release date and Price
The release date has been rumored, and we tend to agree, to be at the end of 2017 when the car hits the market for under $24,000.
The larger problem of the new model and probably the biggest current selling point of the current generation of the car is the lack of a V6 engine in the next model. This hasn’t been confirmed by Toyota, but the inside information suggests that the new car will be designed with fuel efficiency in mind.
This means that the car will very likely ditch its old V6 in the favor of a new 2.0 liter turbocharged inline four engine which could easily provide just as much power as bigger V6 option while using a lot less fuel.
The base 178 horsepower four cylinder unit of the current model is also likely going to be discontinued in the favor of a smaller 1.5 liter 3 cylinder turbocharged mill and according to reports, this one will deliver a similar level of power and torque like a previously available base unit.
So far the rumors are not hinting anything about the design of the upcoming 2017 Toyota Camry, but if we had to take a guess and to consider the previous models of the car, it is safe to assume that the designs of the new generation Prius or the upcoming RAV4 are going to be showcased here.
Just like before, we expect it to be a bit more stylish but close to the current design language of Japanese carmaker.
