Toyota has released a new image of the 2012 Camry, which adds to the growing number of teaser images highlighting the updated sedan. We've seen a video of Akio Toyoda talking up his latest product, along with a shot of the headlight. After that came a still image of the headlight, foglight and a portion of the grille and lower fascia. Now, we get to eyeball the backside with a photograph showing the taillamp and Camry badge courtesy of a new image posted to Twitter.

One of these days, we'll get to see the whole thing... again.

      I got stuck behind another camry this morning, by the way. I guess this is the next annoying taillight shape I will be seeing a lot on my favorite 2-lane driving road.

      I would assume Camry buyers are like toaster buyers. When they need one, they go to the store, see a couple different flashier models, give them a few once overs and then pick up the old tried-and-true basic model and walk to the check out counter.

      I don't really think that Toyota's focusing that much on the exterior of the Camry, mainly the interior. I hope it loses its horrible-looking retro look.

        yeah, that greenish greyish plastic with white stripes... ugh. I hope they don't use it again. I would rather have black or chrome.

      I thought the taillight shot looked way too good to be a Camry. Nice to see Toyota get competitive.

      be still my beating heart. if the next "teaser" shot is of a silver painted plastic hub cap with 14" performance rubber, it will surely put me over the edge. you can almost hear the collective dropping of Metamucil bottles in retirement communities when they see this kind of automotive porn.

          They will. OMG guys our lovechild has been redesigned and is all better now! Let's put the Camry down as recommended without even testing it!

      Considering just how good the some of competition is Toyota needs more than a mild redesign here. Look at the Ford Fusion, The Suzuki Kizashii, the Mazda 6, the Hyundai Sonata, There are a lot of choices out there that offer a significantly better car for the money in at least one way when compared with the current Camry, and after the engine sludge and the frame rust and the Prius headlights, and the steering issues, and the brake issues, and the stability control issues, and the long long list of other recent recalls and other woes. Well I for one don't think of Toyota as having an untarnished reputation for safety and reliability any longer. So what exactly is Toyota going to trade on for the new Camry? how will they stand out from a very competitive current crop of mid sized sedans this time? Sadly I expect they will just continue to ride on the coat tails of their past reputation for reliability.

        Your bias came into full view when you started talking about engine sludge and frame rust... go look up the number of recalls other automakers have had. Toyota only had the most recalled vehicles recently due to the unintended acceleration scam by the US government. Even then, their NUMBER of recalls was dwarfed by the likes of GM and the like. For so many years the most recalls awards were won by GM and Ford. Educate yourself.

      Oh Subaru, run don’t walk from this patnership before you become another soulless company like Honda and Toyota.

      I'm not a Toyota fan but they are just meant to be an appliance. And that is all some people want. However what does drive me crazy about Toyotas are their drivers! I used to be a sales guy at my local Toyota dealership and the mentality of the owners of Toyotas and their attitude towards anything that isn't Toyota is just awful. They act as if Toyota was the greatest thing and everything else is crap. And they are the most annoying people to negotiate with because they always walked in with CR magazines and would want everything below invoice and they always thought they are getting screwed. I could go on and on but this "new" Camry looks more like a thorough refresh.

        I can imagine that would be true. But with Ford, GM, and Hyundai/Kia being the ones to beat in styling on mainstream cars and Toyota and Honda slipping, if things stay the way they are now in the industry for awhile, people will see the light and quit buying this thing. Those three are offering overall quality on par with what Toyota and Honda have become so famous for. They're offering reliability and quality and you can have your cake and eat it too with some stylishness. Can't wait for the new Malibu. How can you go wrong with Camaro-inspired cues?
