The Camry's History

In 1982, the Camry was introduced for the first time. It stared as a compact car, but soon was redesigned as a mid-size sedan. Since its introduction, there have been many sub-models of the Camry, including the Celica, Vista, and Scepter sub-models. Today, the Camry stands alone as a wide-body, mid-size sedan. There have been eleven generational models in all, including five generations of the wide-body style that is on the market today.

Over the years, the Camry has truly become a global car, with availability all over the world. It has garnered multiple honors and undergone incredible innovations in its history of over three decades.

XV40 Series Camry

The XV40 Series of the Camry was unveiled at the 2006 North American International Auto Show and started with the 2007 model year. As a part of the XV40 series, the Camry became available as a hybrid for the very first time. In all, the models were produced in four different powertrain options:

  • From 2007 until 2008, a 2.4L engine with 158 hp and a 5-speed manual or 5 speed automatic transmission.
  • From 2009 until 2010, a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with a new 6-speed automatic transmission that delivered 169 hp on the LE, XLE, and base trims or 179 hp on the SE trim.
  • An upgraded 3.5L V6 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission produces 268 hp.
  • A second-generation Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain with a 4-cylinder engine that delivered 150 hp and an electric motor that produced 190 hp simultaneously.

This generation of Camry vehicles also offered many improvements in design and performance throughout the series:

  • Standard power locks
  • Standard stability and traction control
  • Redesigned fascia and taillights

XV50 Series Camry

The current generation of the Camry is seated in the XV50 series generation. It was introduced in August of 2011 as a 2012 model year. While the exterior only underwent subtle changes for a sportier, more angular, style, the cabin went through a radical overhaul. Many of the performance features stayed the same as the previous generation with a few changes:

  • Three engine choices, including a 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid with 200 hp, a 2.5L 4-cylinder gasoline engine with 178 hp, and a 3.5L V6 engine with 268 hp.
  • All transmissions are 6-speed automatics
  • The SE offers upgraded paddle shifters and a sport-ready, stiffer suspension
