A New Conceptual Rendering Sparks Speculation on the 2024 Toyota Camry
In a recently removed video created by a vendor for Toyota Financial Services, an artist’s rendering of a Toyota Camry was mistakenly used as a placeholder image. The video, which was intended to explain the differences between buying and leasing, sparked speculation when viewers identified a conceptual rendering of a red sedan with a new front end design that bore a striking resemblance to current Toyota models, including the Prius and the Crown Sport, which was unveiled in 2022.
The Rendering: A Blend of Current and Future Designs
The conceptual rendering depicted a red sedan that amalgamated features of the Prius and other recent Toyota models with a lower, more sedan-like body. This contrasted with the Crown Sport’s half-wagon, half-SUV body. The resemblance extended to parts of the rendering like the door cut lines and greenhouse, which bore a strong similarity to the current Camry model.
Anticipation for the 2024 Camry Update
With an unchanged design for seven years, the Camry, a significant model for Toyota, is due for an update in 2024. However, the conceptual rendering does not suggest a complete generational redesign but implies a facelift with minor hardware adjustments. The large black wheels and aggressive air intake in the rendering could hint at a sportier version like the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) or the speculated performance-spec GR Camry.
The Camry’s Position in the Shrinking Sedan Market
Even as the sedan market contracts, the Camry remains an important model in Toyota’s lineup. It is currently the only traditional sedan in the top 10 best-selling cars of 2023 so far. While other companies are reportedly planning to phase out their staple sedans, Toyota seems reluctant to invest in a completely new Camry generation. This reluctance is suggestive of the Camry’s significance to Toyota’s vehicle lineup.
