Toyota Expected to Drop a New Camry and RAV4 in 2024

The Toyota Camry and RAV4 are beyond ubiquitous at this point, as they’re the go-to cars for people wanting dependable transportation that doesn’t take a lot of thought. Newer models are surprisingly sporty, though they’re still the unfailingly practical commuters Toyota has always offered. The current generation vehicles are now several years old, however, and the automaker is expected to issue brand-new versions in 2024.

Drive reported that the two vehicles will carry on in 2024 with the same underpinnings current-generation models use. Though the RAV4 faces stiff competition from all corners of the globe, the Camry competes in a thinning crowd. Honda recently overhauled the Accord, but the Hyundai Sonata is expected to be discontinued after an upcoming facelift. 

Sedans are a dying breed and have long taken a back seat to new SUV and pickup truck development, but Toyota has remained committed to most of its long-running cars. Toyota cut the Avalon from its lineup after 2022 and introduced the Crown, a high-riding all-wheel drive crossover car with upscale finishes inside. The automaker is also expected to introduce an SUV version of its legendary Century luxury sedan that will cost three times the base price of a new Land Cruiser.

      That engine may meet it's end of life through the Lotus Emira, just as the 2ZZ-GE did. Love some 2ZZ.

    Too bad the automobile market is still largely insane. Otherwise this would be a great time to pick up a current generation Camry SE.

      "Yeah, if you hate driving and love your fridge, the Camry SE is the ideal appliance for you."

      Even the SE, is a much better "driver's car" than any CUV/SUV. Even the ones with Lambo and Ferrari badges slapped on them. And a Camry V6 is arguably more of a driver's car than the half-electric appliances Ferrari is curretly trying to promote as their so called "top of the line." As well as the latest 4 wheel steering 5 series, regardless of engine choice and M "package" (a really nice car functionally. Just completely artificial in every possible way as a driver's car.)

      But yes: Toyota's GR cars are definitely more "driver" oriented than the Camry and Prius and Tundra lines. That's kind of the whole point. If Morizo wasn't the reigning monarch of the world's largest auto company, and instead was limited to only one car like the rest of "us" peons, perhaps a GR Camry would be forthcoming......

    "Sedans are a dying breed"

    This is a bigger loss than manual transmissions.

      True but the auto industry is mainly to contribute to the death of the sedan. Newer sedans for the most part have smaller trunks with slopping roof lines making less headroom and are lower to the ground making ingress and egress much harder. Also Government Regulations favor trucks with larger dimensions have less stringent fuel economy standards. More profitable to make and sell suvs, crossovers, and pickups.

    Toyota SUVs and cars are not so reliable anymore. There is something going on with the vehicles that is causing a battery drain issue, which is continually causing a dead battery. Toyota won’t admit that anything is wrong and owners have to deal with waking up to a dead battery over and over again. Do a search on the internet on Toyota battery drain issue or Toyota dead battery issue and get ready to read all about the problem from Toyota owners. Same issue with Subaru vehicles, which resulted in a class action lawsuit. Hopefully the same will happen with Toyota and owners will get compensation and a resolution to the problem.
