Does anyone have information on the next generation Toyota Corolla or Toyota Camry. It should be out by the end of the year, so does any one have info on its design and engine specs

Camry JUST got a facelift, and the Corolla is due for one<p>I guess the Camry is still a year and a half off, by then it should be a reskin. It will have a new body on the old mechanics, maybe new Engines, but seeing as the current engines are new (ok, redone mechanically) I doubt there will be<p>The Corolla should be tweaked this year, getting new Grills, a fresh interior, and tweaked headlights and taillamps (I still maintain the minor changes made for MY05 are not the facelift)<p>The Corolla may recieve a 2.0L engine, the old one from the RAV, but seeing as the current 1.8 is doing very well I strongly doubt they would hark for an engine slowly being nixed from the lineup I believe a new 1.8 Turbo will be replacing the engine in the XRS though, same with the Matrix.<p>If you don't mind I will shortly move thins conversation into the rumors area because that is all that's being discussed.

I'm sure the new Camry will, like Andre said, be on the same platform. The engines, or at least the V6s, will probably change. I think we may see the new 3.0L V6 replacing the older one and the 3.5L replacing the 3.3L. There will most likely be a hybrid variant, most likely based off the 3.0L V6. The exterior and interior will be redesigned, and it might actually become sportier while still maintaining its emphasis in comfort. The Camry was last redesigned in 2002 and revised for 2005-- I'd say the new model should be a 2007 or 2008 model.<p>Contray to Andre's beliefs, I'm sure we won't be seeing another facelift for the Corolla (no offense or dissing intended, but by Andre's logic, Honda's planning to facelift the Accord and Civic and pretty much all the already-facelifted cars in their lineup again, as all Honda changed were the lights and the grille, and, in the case the Civic's taillamps and the Accord's supposedly changed grille, who the hell can tell the difference?)-- I'm sure we'll see a complete redesign. What I figure is that we'll either see larger version of the existing engines or new versions of similar size with all the goodies that the GR-FE has. There'll probably also be a hybrid (what I'm hoping for is a performance-oriented hybrid that's capable of competeing, at least, with turbocharged ricer fodder i.e. SRT-4, WRX, etc.; that ought to shup hybrid-hating enthausiasts up). Since the Corolla came out for 2003 and was revised for 2005, I'd say we're looking at the next Corolla being a 2007 or 2008 model, as well, although I don't think it'll be in the same year as the new Camry.

I still don't understand why Toyota refuses to re-introduce the Corolla GTS (or SR5, or GT or whatever they'd call it) as a Honda Civic Si fighter. The car would look pretty good as a two door coupe.

<B>With a new-generation Camry due within 12 months, and an all-new, sportier Avalon following late in 2006 </B><p><B>TOYOTA Australia is seriously considering a strategy to make the next generation Avalon the only mainstream V6 choice, restricting Camry to four-cylinder power.</B><p><B>Mr HogiosĀ presence in Japan had previously been linked with work on the next generation Camry world car due on sale globally (including Australia) by early 2006.</B><p>Got these from some articles at- Carsales.com.au<p><B>Just as Toyota's Avalon is set for considerable changes, so too is the new Camry. It is expected to be fitted with a four-cylinder engine only, which Toyota's executive director of sales and marketing, Dave Buttner, admits is "a possibility", leaving more room for the Avalon replacement to compete in the Big Aussie Six segment.<p>Having such a big locally made car with a four-cylinder engine also has some advantages with fleet purchasers looking for a large car with a roomy interior and better fuel economy than a six-cylinder. Toyota is taking notice of fleet buyers, government buyers included, that adhere to a four-cylinder buying policy.<p>The next Camry is also expected to be a more cohesive-looking vehicle, with styling more likely to appeal to private buyers rather than the fleet market.<p>With regard to excitement, Toyota previewed its idea of Camry performance at the recent Melbourne motor show with the TS-01 concept, which featured a supercharged V6 engine.<br> <br>"We will look at our next generation to go to market with a sports vehicle . . . which would be similar in concept to the TS-01," Mr Buttner says.<p>Toyota already has a sports division designed to tempt the aspirational buyers that have traditionally gone for sporty Fords or Holdens.</B><p>This article is from Drive.com.au<p><br>

We gotta facelift Corolla last year...<p>AND yeah the front of the JDM Sedan and Wagon look abit yuk. BUT how nice is the interior and the back.<p>Also in Europe they have a great list of standard features including standard curtain airbags. AND the Japanese models also get a good standard feature list. BUT here is Australia, compared to the 3, Astra, Focus (not here yet), and other models... the Corolla is way behind. I also hate the fact that three different models (Ascent Sport, Conquest and Levin) all have the same design 15inch Alloys, they coulda had different ones at least... <p>I cant wait till the ALL NEW one arrives whenever.

Tell u what, i just looked at the specs of the ALL NEW Focus, the Astra and the Mazda3 sold in Australia...

(even the current Camry only gets 16inch max. <p>Man this will be interesting to c what Toyota do to the All New Corolla and i hope size, standard feature wise its up there wit these 3 cars... <p>

In the US, the Camry was released in 2001 as a 2002 so there should be an new one fall 2006 as a 2007. I wouldn't be suprised to see hybrid versions of both the 4cyl and V6. The current Corolla came out in spring 2002 as a 2003 and received a facelift for the 2005MY, a new one will be released in spring 2007 as a 2008. The current ones are selling well so theres no rush.<p>I do believe it would be a good idea to offer the next Corolla in 2dr. They can offer it in all models (CE,LE,S,XRS) just like the sedan and cover a bigger market like the Civic does. And this would help keep older people from buying the Scion tC....
