2012 Toyota Camry Pictures Leaked Via Canadian Magazine

With just a few weeks left before the official introduction of the 2012 Toyota Camry, the Canadian blog Driving leaked images of the car, prompting us to wonder: Is this car an evolution of the current model, a revolution, or just flipping the pillow to the cool side? Pictures come by way of the French-Canadian L’Annuel de l’automobile 2012. Through some thriftiness of asking around the office for French speakers, we were able to conclude that the new Camry will have the all four powerplants carryover from the current generation car. Per the chart listed, the base engine will have 169 horsepower for the LE and XLE and 179 horsepower the SE's version of the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The article states that the LE and XLE pick up 9 more horsepower, but we will have to see as the car nears its U.S. debut. For the 3.5-liter V-6, horsepower will hold steady at 268, and the 2012 Camry Hybrid will retain the same 187 horsepower setup with the older 2.4-liter engine and an electric motor. If our translations prove correct, expect the most notable new features to be Toyota's Entune infotainment system, better materials and sound deadening, greater comfort, and more steering feel for the SE models. The magazine says fuel economy for the 2012 Camry Hybrid will top 40 mpg, but we don't know how that will translate to EPA testing.
