Unofficial Picture: 2012 Toyota Camry

Last week Toyota showed off its new 2012 Camry sedan to its dealers at a national meeting in Las Vegas, and now a video taken at the meeting has surfaced, showing the upcoming sedan in the buff. The bad news? The video was taken down within a matter of hours after it was posted to YouTube this morning. The good news? We managed to snag a screen grab from the clip that shows the front and rear of a pair of Camrys on a stage. The red Camry, with its five-spoke wheels, aggressive air intakes, and ground-effects package, looks to be an SE model (Toyota’s “sporty” Camry designation) while the black one in the foreground is likely an uplevel XLE.

The Camry is definitely evolutionary—not revolutionary—in the styling department, and it appears to maintain the same greenhouse as the outgoing car. The headlights have been toughened up and are much more angular than the current car’s, and the rear-end treatment appears to ape that of the Subaru Legacy with its L-shaped taillights. While we aren’t prepared to declare that the 2012 Camry has shed its nameplate’s typical wallflowery-ness, it does seem to carry a restrained handsomeness—something the outgoing car distinctly lacks—courtesy of its newly hardened edges. The 2012 Toyota Camry is slated to go on sale this fall; we will bring you more information on Toyota’s bread-and-butter sedan as it becomes available.
