2015 Toyota Camry Gets Sweeping Redesign

The best-selling car in America for the last 12 years just got better! When redesigning the Camry for 2015, Toyota went bumper to bumper and floor to roof, changing or re-engineering nearly everything. Only the roof remains unchanged, and it caps off the boldest Camry body ever.

That gives you an idea of the transformation the Camry underwent. The new 2015 Camry has a stiffer body structure, enhanced aerodynamics and its quietest ride ever.

Expressive. Athletic. Exciting.
An aggressive looking front bumper and grille, pronounced side character lines and low-profile LED headlamps give the new Camry a far more expressive style.

Sleek new headlamps are the eyes in a new Camry face you won’t forget. The 2015 Camry offers available LED low- and high beams with auto static leveling, and front turn signal indicators and LED DRL’s are integrated for an elegant appearance. Tail lamps wrap around into the tapered rear quarters for a more sophisticated appearance.

The 2015 Camry is available in 10 colors, including the all-new Celestial Silver Metallic and Ruby Flare Pearl.  Additional colors new for Camry include Blizzard Pearl; Predawn Gray Mica; and Blue Crush Metallic

The 2015 Camry will be available at Longo this October.

The Power of Giving Back 

At Longo, doing good for our community and charity partners comes naturally.  

For nearly five decades, we have been actively involved in causes that make a positive difference to our neighbors and team members – from education and children’s welfare to health and wellness programs.

Through the continuous support from our guests, and participation from our staff, we are able to do what we do. Thank you for allowing us to give back!

Our community partnership comes to life every Saturday when high school students participate at our fundraiser program to raise $500 in exchange for helping our Service Department operations.

Gone in Sixty Seconds: Americans Take Home a Camry Every Minute in May

By the time you read this, at least one more Camry will likely be off the market.

Even if you’re an exceptionally fast reader.

For the month of May, consumers bought just over one Camry per minute. Overall, 49,584 Camrys found their way to a customer’s driveway last month. That’s a rate of 1.1 every 60 seconds. 

“There’s a reason Americans choose Camry, and it shows in sales month after month,” said Bob Carter, vice president of automotive operations for Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. “It’s America’s best-selling car, but more important is the one Camry in the customer’s driveway. The one Camry that gets you and your family to work, school, vacation, the Camry that works in a business enterprise, the one Camry you trust to be reliable and help keep your family safe.”
