The Toyota Camry is the best-selling passenger car in the United States. Introduced by Toyota in 1980, millions of drivers from around the world have purchased this affordable, dependable sedan over the last 33 years, and millions more remain on the road today, a testament to the Camry’s durability and reliability. Initially known as the ‘Celica Camry’, the Camry nameplate was given its own line in 1982. Since that time it’s continued to be a strong seller for Toyota, and has seen a number of significant redesigns over the years. 2015 Toyota Camry would not be a complete redesign; however, enhancements in interior and exterior are expected. Liftback and wagon designs were offered through the 2000 model year. Since that time the Camry has been a sedan offering only, in part because of the rising popularity of minivans and crossover SUVs. Removing the liftback and wagon models from the lineup have not significantly effected sales numbers for the company.
