The iconic sedan is about to come with updates in the next year if we can rely on the latest reports. The current generation has been around 2017. To someone, this may seem as too early for a mid-cycle refresh, but keep in mind that sedans are in a constant decline, due to crossover expansion. Therefore, the only way to retain sales numbers is to make more frequent updates. For the 2021 Toyota Camry, we are about to see a fine number of them, most likely. This means not just aesthetical updates, but also interesting novelties on the inside, and maybe even some powertrain revisions. Logically, the 2021 Toyota Camry will come a little bit earlier than usual, most likely in the third quarter of the next year.
- Excellent fuel economy
- A full load of safety features
- Excellent reliability ratings
- Sporty handling
- Small cargo area
- Can be noisy at higher speeds
Of course, a waste majority of changes are expected to come in terms of styling. Mid-cycle updates are mostly about these kinds of changes and the 2021 Toyota Camry definitely won’t be an exception. Naturally, most of the revisions are expected to come at the front end. Details are still unknown, but we may presume that the new model could come with revisions on the grille, headlights and similar areas.
Of course, bumpers should get new shapes as well. Of course, those typical things like new color options and sets of wheels are also expected. On the other side, the overall design will definitely remain the same. Count on the same overall design, which is based on the company’s new TNGA platform, which ensures excellent driving characteristics. Also, changes in dimensions are not expected.
On the inside, we probably won’t see bigger changes and that definitely isn’t a bad thing. This cabin is great in so many ways. The overall quality is very good. Fine materials are all around the cabin, while the functionality is on a very high level. Also, seats are very comfortable, though some rivals like Chevy Malibu offer more legroom in the second row. One of the biggest drawbacks is a small trunk capacity, which goes around 15 cubic feet. These are below-average numbers for the class.
This update should bring novelties in terms of tech features as well. Of course, we are thinking of a new infotainment system, which will be faster and more functional. Also, it will finally include Android Auto.

2021 Toyota Camry Engines
Count on familiar engines under the hood of 2021 Toyota Camry. Base models will carry on with a familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which is good for about 203 horsepower. Still, an optional 3.5-liter V6 seems like a better deal, as it features 301 horsepower. These engines aren’t just powerful, but also feature impressive mpg ratings. You can count on impressive 29 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway, which are some of the best results in the class.
Moreover, you can also get a hybrid version, which offers unparalleled fuel economy that goes way over 50 miles per gallon in a combined ride. Even the arch-rival, Honda Accord Hybrid can’t match these numbers.
We should also see a couple of novelties in this aspect, but keep in mind that the current model is already fully-loaded with standard safety features, with things like rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist etc. Of course, there is much more in higher trims.
2021 Toyota Camry Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Toyota Camry should arrive sometime in the third quarter of the next year. We probably won’t see bigger changes in price, despite the changes. Therefore, base models should go around $24,000. Hybrid versions start at around $28,500.
