2023 Toyota Camry Missing This Important Upgrade – Redesign Coming?

An important feature was not updated for 2023 Toyota Camry. What we know about next generation Camry.


Toyota Camry is doing just fine for itself. Camry has been the best-selling midsize sedan in America for 20 consecutive years.

That is two full decades.

And in a crowded field of midsize cars for buyers to decide on, this is a monumental accomplishment.

But when will Camry receive a redesign? A big clue may have been uncovered with the release of 2023 Camry details.

And the omission of this huge upgrade.

2023 Toyota Camry Review

Toyota announced last month the refreshed 2023 Camry Nightshade. It is available in SE front-wheel drive, SE all-wheel drive, and SE Hybrid.

I recently had the opportunity to review this new 2023 Camry at Toyota Headquarters. Spoiler alert: you may really like the combination of 19-inch matte-bronze finished wheels with new color Reservoir Blue.

Pretty cool upgrade.

There is one feature, though, I was sure Camry would include as part of a refresh update. It was not.
In fact, 2023 Venza is getting it, 2023 Highlander got it, 2023 RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid are showing it off, and the 2023 Corolla family will have it.

A new multimedia system.

Toyota Audio Multimedia is being rolled out across the Toyota lineup. Several popular Toyota models are either equipped with it or will be equipped with it this model year.

Next-gen 2022 Tundra has this new multimedia system. The new 2023 Sequoia has it as well. Plus, as I said, the 2023 RAV4 and Highlander and Corolla and Venza are getting it.

But not Camry 2023.

Look for modern graphics, improved speeds, more conversational voice commands, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and many more functions and capabilities with Toyota Audio Multimedia. And, of course, larger multimedia touch screens as well.

So, why hold it back from Toyota Camry?

Must be time for a new body style.

2024 Toyota Camry Release Date

I do not have any insider information, but it makes sense that we will be seeing a 9th generation Camry for the 2024 model year.

We have been with 8th-gen Camry since 2018 model year, and that feels like a long time considering the competitive midsize sedan segment.

Of course, a new generation of Toyota Camry will bring with it new exterior and interior styling, a modernized interior cabin, potentially new powertrain options, and plenty of new technology and safety.

I, for one, cannot wait to see what next-gen Toyota Camry has in store for its fans.

Time for Your Toyota Camry Comments

I would love to see your opinions and thoughts on this one. Will we see a 2024 Toyota Camry with a new body style, or will it be another year after that?

What would you like to see out of the next generation Camry? Do you think Toyota should come out with a Toyota Camry plug-in hybrid or maybe a battery electric Camry?

Or maybe a high-performance Camry?

Thanks for reading everyone. See you next story.

The Camry needs to loose weight and be downsized. It has become an ugly over styled huge fat bloated vehicle. It is claiming to be a mid size but to me it a full size. I have not taken the time to properly compare dimensions to any full size car, so I may be wrong. The Accord was heading in the same direction, but was down sized, and looks good and trim. The Altima also has gotten to be a large vehicle but seems to be holding on its current size.

I hate to disagree with you, sir but I think the current Camry is one of the best looking cars ever. My wife and I bought a new Camry XSE a couple of years ago and we truly love it.

To me, its dimensions are perfect. It is a large car, yes but that just adds to the appeal. It makes the design flow better. (I just read that the new '24 Honda Accord is 2.8 inches longer than the '23) I'll say that after this body style was introduced, I was never going to be happy until I owned one.

I can also say honestly that we separately and together have received quite a few compliments on our car. That's really saying something these days when so many cars look alike. Of course, I believe the color scheme on our car helps it to get noticed. It is Wind Chill Pearl White with a Midnight Black top with Cockpit Red (bright red) interior. One younger man who complimented it said he had never seen a car with bright red interior before,

But @Thom, differing opinions are what makes the world go 'round and what drives the auto industry!

Its way past time for Camry to offer a new 2024 Camry late this year or early next year. The exterior design is old looking and the inside cabin dashboard over packed. Honda just came out with a new design for 2023 so Toyota better wake up and smell the competition coming. No one wants a 2018 Camry in 2024. No One
