We have constantly been keeping you updated on the new 2012 version of the Toyota Camry which will launch on 24th August. On that front, the latest is that all specifications and details for the Camry have been released. The price however will be confirmed later but is expected to be in the same range that is somewhere close to Rs. 23-24 Lakh.
The prevailing versions were Completely Built-Units and the latest fully loaded trim is a CKU, which might mean a slight cut in prices but the market conditions, inflations, rates etc. seem to be saying otherwise. What exactly will happen, for that we’ll have to wait for a little while more. The new Camry will be a 16 Valve DOHC, 2494cc engine in comparison to the prevailing 2362cc models. The loaded Camry will be capable of delivering a power output of 178bhp at 6000revs as compared to the current version which churns out a power of 164bhp at 6000rpm. The torque generated will be 233Nm at 4100rpm. Following the global trend India would be getting the Petrol version only for now. There are no comments whatsoever about a diesel mill.
The exteriors of the 2012 Toyota Camry have been enhanced to give the sedan more premium and luxurious looks. Enhancing the looks is the new styled Chrome radiator grille, Automatic HID headlamps, 10 spoke 16inch alloy wheels, chrome door handles and rear garnish along with the body colored ORVM with electric adjust and retract and the freshly designed larger and elongated taillights, which is combination lamp with LED brake lights.

Further, there will be an impact sensing fuel-cut off system, immobilizer plus alarm, clearance and back sonar with illustration display, ensuring that the ride is not just comfortable but safe and secure as well.
