This year marks 30 years of sales for the Toyota Camry in the US, and in that time, it has amassed more than 10 million sales. In its first year on the market, the Camry sold 52,651 units, but it has gone on to become the best-selling car in the US for the last 11 years.

Toyota says that "virtually all" current Camry models sold in the US are made here, and three-quarters of all Camry contents are domestically sourced.

Toyota Eclipses 10 Million in Camry Sales
About 1 in 5 Toyota Vehicles Sold Is a Camry

TORRANCE, Calif. (July 2, 2013) – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported 10 million sales of its Toyota Camry, America's top-selling car for the past 11 years, representing nearly 20 percent of all the vehicles Toyota has ever sold in the U.S. This milestone comes the same year Camry celebrates its 30 year anniversary in the U.S.

"We couldn't be more excited about Camry's 10 millionth sale in the U.S.," said Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. "With the support of so many loyal customers, Camry has truly become part of the country's fiber. For seven generations, Toyota dealers have also been instrumental in getting Americans behind the wheel of a Camry. Camry is definitely helping Toyota Go Places."

Toyota's first generation Camry was introduced to the U.S. market in 1983. In its first full year of sales, Camry sold 52,651 vehicles. Three decades later, 773 of those Camrys are still in operation.

Toyota brought Camry production to its plant in Georgetown, Ky. in May of 1988, marking the company's early commitment to investment in North America. In October 2006, the first Camry hybrid was produced, strengthening Toyota's hybrid leadership position in the U.S.

Overall, there are approximately 6.4 million Camrys on the road, further echoing the quality, reliability and durability still represented by Camry seven generations down the line.

This year, J.D. Power and Associates underscored Camry's value by ranking it number one in the midsize passenger car segment in its 2013 Initial Quality Study (IQS).

Today Camry is also the most American made car with 75 percent of its content sourced domestically, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Today, virtually all Camrys sold in the U.S. are produced in the U.S.

        I can understand missing a model year since they're all sooooo....Camry. But one of the pics was a Cressida! C.mon AB!!

      I think a Cressida was mistakenly added as a picture of a 1989 Toyota Camry. Though today's Camry is avoidable and pretty boring, I do like the first generation 5-door hatch model and the second generation wagon, they look very purposeful and unique. It's too bad they neutered the Camry by the third generation onward.

      Thirty years from now many of them may still be running. Still, no one will care.

      I got my wife a new Camry in 2009 when I got sick of throwing money at her VW Passat because you'll see a 20 year old Camy driving around every day. It's our beater, park at the airport, long distance car. It won't set any records at the Nurburgring, but it's been reliable as an anvil. Before you question my car guy cred, my DD is a 2012 Boss 302.

      Toytota was smart to stand by their product names - Camry and Corolla. Detroit keeps changing names hoping to spark sales. Or bringing old names back in the hopes customers forget about the new name piece of crap that was built. (I am talking years ago since Detroit is now finally back on track.) Of course, the flip side to keeping the same name is you can build a reputation for both good and bad things. Like dependable...but boring. And for many shoppers boring is fine. Although recent sales data is showing the Camry being challenged by much more stylish and exciting cars. Taurus used to sit on the top of the sales chart. Then Accord. Now Camry. I think Accord will take the lead back within the next year.

      My parents bought a 1983 brand new. Black bumpers, manual windows, stick shift, no passenger rear view mirror. Nobody had ever heard of it and my relatives referred to it as "that little farrin car." Became my first car in high school. On the road nobody paid any attention to it at all, same as today. I bet the Big Three would like to go back to 1983 and pay more attention to that little farrin car.

          They must've both been very short folks- nobody over about 5'8 could fit comfortably in one of those Camry hatchbacks, especially if they had a factory sunroof.

        For its time, it was actually quite spacious. Gotta love those boxy lines. It remember thinking that the "O/D" button on the left side of the shifter was something exotic. It also had a louvered plastic shade on the inside of the upper part of the rear hatch, which I had never seen before. It was a lemon though. They hated it and to this day my uncle curses Toyota and the local dealer.
