No, it should be completely replaced by the 2012 model, but updated for 2010.
They almost always make an update by the 4th model year. How "major" it is varies, but is generally a lot more than just new paint colors. The 2010 will be the fourth year of this body style.
Look at the 2005 Camry vs the 2002-2004 models.
The absolute minimum you can expect is standard VSA on most if not all models and a minor styling update (maybe new grill, headlights, tail lights etc.).
Maybe they will update or replace the 2.4 liter engine that's kind of old and address some complaints about interior quality.
The 2010 will probably be released earlier than average next year otherwise there was no point in making the 2008 Camry model year extremely short and releasing the 2009 Camry so early this year when there were no changes between 2008 and 2009 models.
I could see them adding some features seen on the 2009 Corolla such as pre-wiring the satellite radio antenna from the factory and making XM standard with the JBL.
There are also lots of complaints about the nav system being substandard vs the Honda's because there is little you or the front passenger can do with it while the car is in motion (even with the voice commands).

The upcoming Venza will get an all new 2.7L I4 engine pumping out around 190 to 200 HP. My bet is the next generation Camry will get this as the base engine. I don't think the 2010 will get the 2.7 liter engine although it is possible they will tweak the current 4 cylinder to produce an extra 10 hp or so to keep it competitive with the competition's 4 cylinder engine. The most likely change for the 10 model will be some cosmetic appearance change.

Even a cosmetic change (different front and rear end caps) and widespread availability or standard VSC, factory installed XM etc. could be a nice improvement.

Yea, I don' believe they will make any major changes besides refreshing the headlights or tail light and the grill. Compare the 94 to 95 camry, or the 99 to 00 camry, or the 04 to 05 camry. All of they major changes are very minor. They may make some things standard like VSC. Also, as I said early some minor cosmetic changes.

No, they did more than only minor cosmetic changes. The 3.3 liter V6 became available.

... the platform's and the engines generally have 10 yr lives.
92-01 vehicles were about the same size
02-11 vehicles will all be about the same size
However with the lukewarm reception to the Accord's size increase ( almost Avalon ) I wonder if Toyota will grow the Camry any further. I hope not.
2.2L I4 ran from 92 to 01
3.0L V6 ran from ?? to 06 ( the 3.3L was a modified 3.0L )
2.4L I4 should run from 02 to 11
3.5L V6 should run from 07 to 16
These would be the SOP runs. The Venza with the 2.7L will be out as an 09 but I'd guess the Camry keeps the 2.4L through MY 2011. It makes the Venza that much more attractive. It sets it apart. Valvematic additions across the board are likely additions in all models at that time frame.
Then there's the THS 3 options.

With advent of teh new CAFE we may begin to see more rapid acceptance of new engine technologies such as DFI, miller cycle, and maybe even "simple" engine compression braking.

It's still possible they could add the 2.7 for 2010 as long as they're building it for the Venza anyway especial if it would get the same or better fuel economy.
People thought they wouldn't put the 3.5 in the Camry since the competition was only using 3 liter engines and so the Avalon could be further differentiated, but they were surprised when that engine did appear in the 2007 Camry.
#12 of 1027 what do you think
Apr 04, 2008 (8:35 pm)
about the size of the Camry and the size of the Accord? The Camry has gotten bigger and bigger every 10 yrs ever since it came out. Its due to get bigger again with the next Gen.
