Looks like the new, "more emotional" Toyota Camry designer Kevin Hunter talked about back in January is going to arrive very soon, with news that Toyota's bread-and-butter sedan will be getting an update in just a few weeks time at the 2014 New York Auto Show.

"On April 16 at the New York International Auto Show, we will make an important announcement about America's best-selling car, the Toyota Camry," said Curt McAllister, Toyota product news manager, in an emailed statement. Considering the high-profile nature of the NYAS - not to mention the competition that will be shown there - it makes sense that Toyota would choose to unveil something as significant as a major refresh at the Javits Center.

We wish we had more to tell you than this, but unfortunately, that's about all we've got to go on at this time. Of course, we'll have much more for you during the lead up to NYAS, including any leaks of the refreshed Camry. Stay tuned.

      I've been waiting my whole life for one of these.

      Put a rear wing on it and call it a WRX....

      Hopefully the announcement is that they will implement their Valvematic system in the V6 and four cylinder engines in the Camry. That or they will offer both engines with D4S. Or that they will offer the Camry sedan with all wheel drive. There's quite a bit Toyota could do--and have already done in other markets--but they are rather conservative in the US market. In any case, competition in that field is rather stiff and the Camry already does well with what it has, so I don't think Toyota needs to do anything dramatic in order to stay at or near the top. Chances are they'll just do a semi-spindle grill redesign similar to the Avalon.

      Perfect the safety demerits, upgrade the interior (the cheap headliner and carpeting gotta go!), keep it comfy, quiet and above all - bullet proof reliable. And oh yeah - how about some new colors?

      The Camry's never been ugly, but for some reason the front of the SE does look it. It looks like a glaring vampire. Toyota has the money to keep doing refreshes sooner than most other automakers, but why don't they just design a better looking and more competitive car from the get-go?

      I hope it's not like the Avalon. While it got some praise from the media for it's look, the Avalon is ugly to my eyes.

      And how well did that "new, more emotional Corolla" work out? Nothing here, move along.

      Pillows and blankets will be passed out and the lights dimmed to encourage napping.

      I'll be surprised if there are any noticeable changes.

        What a stupid remark. There would be no reason to rush an update (since the Accord, Altima, and Fusion are posing serious threats) if there weren't going to be noticeable changes.

      Needs to be a rear wheel drive, V8, diesel wagon with a stick to work for me...

          I thought merely mentioning rear wheel drive wagons, V8s, diesel and sticks would automatically generate Thumb Ups!!!! Man, I need to go look at some old Autoblogs for guidance.

      I didn't there could be so many iterations of boring. Toyota continues to find a new level of boredom on each and every Camry released/updated.

        "know" somehow didn't find it's way as the third word. Edit feature would be nice

      Doesn't matter, there will be about 354 comments from the kids here Autoblog about how boring, bland , beige, and stupid it is, and more whining about the fact that actual adults who have jobs go out and drive one and then end up liking it to buy it. Round and round it goes.
