2015 Toyota Camry coming up soon.

The revised Camry will be officially shown on April 16th.

So far, the only official word is " will challenge conventional expectations of mid-cycle model change".
So that would mean quite a bit more than the usual "new headlights and bumpers".
(It is also what is being said about the 2015 Jetta and 2016 Passat)

Being a mid-cycle refresh, the profile won't change much.
But we could be seeing a whole new front, rear and interior. And maybe new engines? (2.0 Liter Turbo?)

No matter what, the Camry is still the best selling car in the US, so Toyota won't be going nuts with crazy styling.

What would you like to see in the 2015 Camry?

I actually like the clean styling of the current Camry. Best looking one ever. My issue is the horrid interior, seats and the cheap looking tail lights. Otherwise it's close to being one of the better looking sedans out there in it's class (in SE trim).

I would like to see fuel economy that crushes the Accord's numbers. Also, a more sporty ride, quieter and is NOT available in BEIGE!

I would like to see the Camry go away completely. It's a horrid car for people who don't care about cars. But of course it will continue to sell to pear-shaped suburbanites, because that's the way it's been for the past twenty years. No amount of re-molded plastic is going to be enough to make a difference.

I like the stylistic turn that Toyota took with the new Corolla. It's a lot smoother and more balanced, with a bit of a Lexus look up front.

An OK-looking Camry would challenge conventional expectations. Maybe they looked at Hyundai's numbers and figured they should lay-off the ugly stick for once. Little did they know that Hyundai was thinking the opposite.

And we have to thank Hyundai and Kia for giving them a fit and forcing them to go beyond updating little touches here and there.

umm correction Vince, Honda Accord is now the best selling sedan! Not Camry!

Sales mean nothing, the best selling brand for years was GM and they made the most horrid cars around....Sales are the result of marketing, end of story, you want proof other than that look at the food industry, Mcdonald's outsells other, waaaay better burgers by a long shot, they ( McDonald's) are the Toyota of the food industry.

Correct, sales mean nothing. Toyota puts so much cash on the hood, that every transaction is like a fire sale. To see who the real winner is, it's a balance between transaction price and sales. Of the competition, I'd bet on the Fusion. Those things get really expensive, and I see well optioned Fusions everywhere. I'm hoping to start seeing more Mazda 6's around. I'd like for that to become real competition against the Camry.

Vince is right with the sales number which you can see here:

And, to our surprise, the car that has the lead so far this year is the Nissan Altima!

I personally don't want them to change much if anything. The Toyota Camry has been the top selling car for a reason. Reliability.

Look at how many older models are on the road and compare that to Hyundais and Kia?

No matter what detractors say about the Camry it's a car that sells in high volumes because people know what lasts and are willing to plunk down their hard earned coin to own one.

If it were true for Hyundais or Kias they would be the best selling vehicles on the road but they are only still second best to whatever Toyota and Honda sells.
