On the heels of last week's official 2012 Toyota Camry teaser video starring Akio Toyoda comes a new image that appears to show the full vehicle. Judging by how closely the headlamps of the car you see here resemble the ones on the red car that Mr. Toyoda was standing by, this very well may be what the all-new Camry will look like. The best-selling mid-size sedan is expected to make its official debut later this year.

Buyers shouldn't be surprised to find the proven 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 3.5-liter V6 to provide motive force, backed by six-speed automatic transmissions. If the pictures are indeed accurate, the Camry's looks are going to to evolve slightly and pick up some Lexus-like cues. Dimensions aren't likely to change much from the current Camry, and the quality of the interior outfitting is going to be a key point of interest. We'll have the full details later this year.

UPDATE: We've now received video of what appears to be the 2012 Camry being revealed to a group of Toyota dealers. Follow the jump to see the new Camry make its on-stage debut.

      That's not the new Camry. I know, because I have seen it. Also, if you really paid attention in the video, you'd see that the top of the headlights carry over to the top of the grille, with no rise. It's just one solid straight line.

      If this is the new Camry, this isn't too much of a change more of an evolution on the current design. It's mildly attractive but hardly exciting. Yet again I'm not a huge Toyota fan. It will be interesting to see how all of these new mid-sized cars that are coming out in the next two years are going to battle out.

      Woody's Car Site ran this photo last Wednesday. I linked to it when AB teased the new Camry's headlight, which was very similar to this car photo. Of course, that comment was deleted. This one probably will be deleted as well. I don't understand why there is an animus towards other sites.

      This has probably been said downthread, but the hood lines in this picture don't seem to match those of the headlight Toyoda teased the other day (particularly with regard to the HID). Although hard to see, the bumper and grille look different from this picture and in the video as well. If anything, this looks like a rendering from one of those Japanese concept-car magazines. Looking forward to the public reveal to know if I'm wrong.

      This (black and white image) is not the new car. 1. Look at the image of the headlight from Toyota and notice how the headlight follows the hood line. The above image does not show that. 2. Assuming the video is legit, the line above the door handles is not present. Also the grilles do not match. I doubt this image is real, but the video is.

      Squint and it sure looks a lot like an Infinti. It's okay for a Camry but eh.

        That's what I said weeks ago when I saw this article! Cover up the emblem on the front, and the headlight design, along with the rims look a car I'd see in the Nissan/Infiniti lineup!

      The drawing look good. Nice, sharp and simple. No ridiculous curves and shapes like a few certain cars in its class. I hope Toyota does something with the motor instead of droppin the current powerplant back in this new car. The competition has more power Toyota not that power is all that matter but more HP never really hurt anyone. I cant wait to see this car. When the current camry first dropped it was the best car around and took first place in every test. I hope this will do the same. If done right the camry will be a big winner.

      ReFresh or All-New? I did a frame grab and rotate from the posted reveal video and screen cap from Toyota's own U.S. site for comparison here: http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/71/2011vs2012camry.png What do you think? We'll know more in the coming weeks.

      What the hell is with the hate for this car? If you don't like it, DON'T BUY IT! No need for racist slurs...No need for trolling...No need to attack people... Is this too much to ask for?

        I don't understand it either. How does an ordinary family sedan inspire so much hate? It's not offensive in any way, and the mid-sized sedan market is so active and varied right now that there are all manner of appealing options out there if you don't want one.

          Dude it's not like anyone is saying that someone who buys a camry is going to get shot by us who think Camry's are a piece of ****! Honestly you fanboys (or not from what you say) are taking this to heart and getting all misty eyed over a little toyota hate. Ease up big boy and take a good laugh at the comments!

      it is very sad how some American people don't even pay mind to their own products any more.... where are you from ? where is your culture/heritage ? GM, Ford, and Chrysler are a HUGE part of what built this country, where is your American sprit?... It is very sad to see all these thumbs down and nasty comments from you Toyota lovers and GM haters.. just goes to show what has become of this country, some of you people can't even support the own country where you live and thrive in... i know im going to get thumbs down... but frankly i dont give a rats ass, because me and the other select few American supporters know we need to be proud in our OWN country, not a country thousands of miles away... and im not saying they can't do business here, im just saying how sad all this really is ... Americans used to take pride in thier products..... and now, this liberal, bias, over-blown media circus has turned the majority of you into overseas products lovers... get a grip people, think about the soil you are standing on, the soil you are sleeping and breathing on ... it is the 4th of July for God sakes

        You would have made a good comrade in the USSR. "The enemy of the people and the decadent buys foreign cars. Defend the motherland, buy AvtoVAZ!"

        I see your plea of patriotism and I raise you an article that establishes that this Camry is more American than American-brand cars. http://blogs.democratandchronicle.com/business/2011/06/27/the-most-american-made-car-is-again-the-camry/

        "Americans used to take pride in their products..." You're right. GM, Ford, and Chrysler used to take pride in their products. I'll buy a car based on which is the best, not where it's parent company is from. It bothers me that people look at my Acura as being a foreign car...when it was built right here in Ohio by North American Honda of Torrance, CA. Many of the so called "foreign" cars are just as American as the domestics. If not more so, as many American manufacturers move assembly to Canada and Mexico. Step out of your conservative, 1960s mentality.

      lol I love how the Jap fans are all crying about multiple accounts while every person that disagrees with them gets 15- down votes. Who has the multiple accounts now, you Toyota ****tards?

      Stop down voting the truth, you Toyota leg humpers! The Camry is a piece of garbage. Toyota's an extremely despicable company that has been making some of the most problematic, unsafe cars ever! You know it's true!
