Detroit 2009: 2010 Toyota Camry

32 posts in this topic

In addition to the 2010 Toyota Prius and iQ-based FT-EV, ToMoCo is taking the wraps off the redesigned 2010 Camry at the Detroit Auto Show later today. Due to go on sale this March, the restyled Camry offers the same soul-sucking practicality and Maytag levels of usability as its forbearers, but features a few engineering and design tweaks to bring it into the next decade.

On the outside, the 2010 Camry receives a new front bumper with enlarged air intakes, uprated headlamps and a set of restyled taillights. The XLE model includes 16-inch, ten-spoke wheels, while the SE rolls on 17-inch hoops and the base LE makes due with wheel covers. Inside, a new optional stereo with USB port, Bluetooth, satellite radio, single CD and MP3 capability is fitted, and Vehicle Stability Control is now standard on all models. The Camry Hybrid gets a slightly reworked fascia, along with a new gauge cluster and silk protein/synthetic fiber cloth seats that Toyota claims are more gentle on the skin.

Under the hood of the base Camry, LE and XLE models is a refreshed, 169-hp 2.5-liter four equipped with VVT-i. The SE model uses the same engine, but comes packing another 21 hp for a total of 179 and can be had with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. Both the 268-hp, 3.5-liter V6 and the hybrid drivetrains soldier on unchanged.

Hit the jump for all the details and check the gallery below to see the tweaks for yourself.

That is pretty much just a really lame, half-a$$ed mid-cycle refresh. :blink:

More Toyopet KoolAid.

Yawn!

I do have a question: Is Toyota and Honda in a contest to see who can create the ugliest grille designs in the auto industry? I say they are in a solid tie at the moment since Subaru has recently withdrawn from the contest.

Oh my GOD, WTF, KEWL, MIND BOGGLING, scintillating, amazing, creative, trend setting, gorgeous.

And they have totally made it into a RWD in MCE. No more boring badge for Toyota. Toyota you are genious. When can I buy this? I cannot wait to have one in my hand, make it three so that I can have different flavorz. Toyota you rock out with your cock out by bringing this MCE gamechanger Camry in the mid size segment. :pbjtime::metal::jump::bowdown:

OMG! Camry roolez!! It is TEH BOMB! Toyota IS God! :) :)

Of course, I'm sure these photos are automotive pr0n to the guys I worked with this summer at the startup---there were so many Toyota fanboys there---from the 24yr old w/ the new Camry w/ the 20 inch custom wheels, to the 4 Priuses, the 30-something ironman triatheletes---one with a Matrix and one with an FJCruiser, etc.. they were always picking on me for driving/liking American cars.

It looks like this Camry kissed a last gen Accord and the Accord's chrome lipstick smudged on the Camry.

It is way behind the Malibu and the refreshed Fusion makes it look bad as well. Has toyota given up? Since the 1997-2001 version it has been all downhill for the camry (in design).

So is Camry going to be the one to bring the popular forest green color back that attacked family sedans in the early/mid 90's?

Well, even if it is, it'll have to be better than the colour demonstrated in some photos for me to like the colour, and even then, I'd still hate the car.

That green in the picture in this thread would look good on the G8, CTS, or new Camaro, IMHO. Much nicer than the '90s Camry green..

My favourite greens of the 1990's were Chrysler's Emerald Green, Forest Green, and Medium Fern.
