The 2025 Toyota Camry is getting a makeover, based on a new teaser image showing the sedan's trunklid.
Previously, Toyota released a shrouded photo of the Camry's front end, which included a lightning signature similar to the Toyota Prius's design.
The current-generation Camry debuted in 2018, so the timing is right for the next one, which will have all-wheel drive and a hybrid powertrain.
UPDATE 11/9/23: Toyota has today revealed the next-generation Camry will debut on November 14. Along with making that announcement, the company released another teaser photo showing a close-up shot of the family sedan's trunklid. That image also confirms that the 2025 Toyota Camry will have all-wheel drive and a hybrid powertrain.
A new Toyota Camry will break cover soon, at least that's what's expected after the automaker released a teaser photo. The shrouded image shows the front end of what's clearly a car (versus another crossover), and judging by the visible rear headrests, it's most likely a sedan.
We have other evidence that suggests the car in question is the next-gen Camry. Earlier this year, our spy photographer caught a heavily camouflaged Toyota sedan prototype testing. While nothing has been confirmed, we expect the new ninth-generation Camry to have similar dimension to the outgoing model but ride on the company's TNGA-K platform and benefit from updated powertrains.
Neither today's teaser image nor our spy photos give us a clear idea of what the 2025 Camry will look like, we can make out a prominent Toyota badge on the nose—like the Toyota Supra—and the distinct lighting signature is similar to the design seen on the Toyota Prius.
Last month, a video accidentally posted on Toyota's YouTube account revealed what we thought might be the new Camry. The red car had side detailing reminiscent of other new Toyota models and facial details like the Prius as well as the Toyota Crown. The video has since been taken down, and a Toyota spokesperson told Car and Driver the rendering was mistakenly used and not a preview of the new Camry.
A Mightier Hybrid Camry?
The next generation of the Toyota Camry will almost surely feature a new selection of powertrains. There's no doubt a hybrid setup will be among those, however, Toyota now has quite a few to choose from. Will it be the 236-hp all-wheel-drive configuration that powers the Crown, or perhaps the Toyota Highlander's potent 265-hp hybrid turbo four While the current Camry's base 2.5-liter four-cylinder might still be offered on lower trim levels, we don't expect the 3.5-liter V-6 to carry on.
