2007 Toyota Camry Surfaces on Japanese Web Site

Japanese Web site Auto Gallery Net has published what it purports to be authentic photos of the redesigned 2007 Toyota Camry, which is slated to make its official debut in early January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

If the photos are genuine, the revamped sheetmetal appears to borrow heavily from the new Toyota form language that has begun to emerge on such recently introduced models as the Avalon and the Lexus IS. In fact, the '07 Camry looks more substantial, sophisticated, and expensive than the current design. The Web site says the drag coefficient on the car is a slick 0.28.
Dimensions won't change dramatically, according to Auto Gallery Net. The overall length remains just over 189 inches, while the wheelbase grows about two inches to 109.2 inches. Front and rear track also grow by more than an inch, but the car sits about an inch lower, giving it a more aggressive, European stance. The interior is roomier, and so is the trunk.
A revised DOHC 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine will deliver 167 horsepower (in Japan trim) compared with 154 hp for the current U.S.-spec car, and it will be mated to a new five-speed automatic transmission. The Japanese Web site makes no mention of a V6, but the '07 Camry is rumored to be getting Toyota's DOHC 3.5-liter unit as an option in North America. The Japan-spec Camry will be available in both front- and four-wheel-drive variants, but the four-wheel-drive version may not make the cut for North America.
