2013 Toyota Camry: Most things to most people
user id

Toyota’s Durand says the company will soon reveal news about a Special Edition four-cylinder Camry. It’s doubtful that model will have anything in common with the automaker’s NASCAR edition Camry, though the aim of that oval-track beast has everything to do with jazzing up Camry’s pedestrian image. “Our 2013 Camry looks more like the production vehicle than ever before,” says Ed Laukes, vice president of marketing communications and motorsports for Toyota Motor Sales. “We think NASCAR fans will really appreciate that our new on-track Camry looks like the one in their driveways.”

For those looking to get more zip out of a Camry, the model of choice would be the SE ($26,910). Beyond the more sporting V-6 engine, the SE features an upgraded suspension that brings a bit more life to the car’s steering, though you won’t want to book lap time at Talladega Superspeedway just yet. Remember, Camry’s unwavering mandate remains to be most things to most people.

Or in yet another sports metaphor, “Camry is a post player,” Durand says, lapsing into basketball speak. “It’s not going to be taking 15-footers.” After all, those three-pointers have a way of missing, something that Camry, judging from its nearly 30 years of U.S. sales, continues to know little about.
