The 2015 Toyota Camry launches in the United States the second week of September, and we couldn’t be more excited. As you know, the 2015 Toyota Camry has been the #1 car in American for years and we can see why. It’s sleek exterior, spacious interior and Toyota dependability have made a difference to all the loyal Toyota buyers out there. Last week at a press conference, Robert Carter, the senior VP of Toyota’s automotive operations in the United States had this to say:
“This is a mega change to Camry and the most expensive mid-cycle change in our company’s history,” Carter started. “We are fully committed to keeping Camry No. 1 for a long time to come.”
The 2015 Camry has an updated exterior appearance with all new exterior panels except the roof turret while maintaining the same frame as its 2014 model. The powertrain is the same and the interior changes are more minimal. While the changes for the 2015 Toyota Camry might not seem drastic, Carter hinted at big changes to come in the future.
“The next chapter in Toyota’s history will focus on design, fun-to-drive and killer interiors,” he said.

This past week was the 2015 Pebble Beach Auto show consisting of the Concours d’Elegance, Tour d’Elegance, RetroAuto, Motoring Classic, Automotive Fine Arts Society Exhibition, and the Pebble Peach Car Auction. This Auto Show overall is aimed at showing off classic cars, luxury vehicles, and concept cars. Toyota joined in on the fun when they showed off new designs of their FT-1.
As you might recall, the new Toyota FT-1 was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show this past January. At Pebble beach, two new exciting versions of it were as different as they were similar. The first version of the FT-1 was the FT-1 Gran Turismo. This took the current platform of the FT-1 and made it even sportier by giving it a larger rear spoiler and a lower stance. This Vision GT FT-1 could hint at what Toyota’s future race cars, such as the Supra, will look like in the coming years.
The second special-edition Toyota FT-1 is what Toyota is calling their “upscale interpretation” of the vehicle. The outside of the car changes from the bright red color to a cool, graphite shade. The seating surfaces in their upscale FT-1 become even more luxurious with tan leather, making this edition of the FT-1 like the Clark Kent to the Gran Turismo FT-1 Edition’s superman. In fact, that’s what the designers were after – the more muted tones were inspired by a superhero’s transition.
Both special edition vehicles that were on display this past week will be available for players to drive in the video game, Gran Turismo 6. Learn more about the Toyota FT-1 Vision GT concept in the video below and be sure to stop by Haddad Toyota to stay up-to-date with all the newest Toyota News.

The interior of the 2013 Toyota Camry has a leather-wrapped tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth® controls, silver interior trim, two 12V power outlets, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat to help you ride in comfort, dust and pollen filters, cruise control, and power lumbar support for both the driver and the front passenger.

Did you know that the Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in the United States? In fact, it’s been the bestselling car in the U.S. for the past 12 years and the 2015 Toyota Camry coming out later this year promised to deliver more of the same dependable, reliable performance that we have come to expect from this great car. In fact, over 90% of all Camrys sold in the last ten years are still on the roads today! (We suspect the other 10% were used for movie stunt productions and therefore blown up and unable to be driven after such intense Hollywood stunts).
The Toyota Camry time and time again has proven its long-term worth and people are taking notice. IntelliChoice, an automotive analysis company, rated the 2014 Toyota Camry as the having the highest retained value in its class.
While all of this is great, we can’t sell the Camry any better than it can sell itself so be sure to come by Haddad Toyota to test drive the best car in the U.S. today. You won’t forget it!
