America’s best-selling mid-size sedan is getting some updates as Toyota launches the 2023 Camry.
As the eighth-generation model is likely to retire, this year’s changes focus on the minor and essentially a revised nightshade version.
Available in Camry SE models with front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and hybrid powertrain, the Nightshade package features eye-catching 19-inch alloy wheels with a matte bronze finish. These contrast with the sedan’s revised color palette, which includes the new Reservoir Blue and Midnight Black and White. The 2023 Camry Nightshade now features “black-trimmed headlights and taillights for a more powerful dimension.”
In addition to the updates, the Nightshade version features a TRD-inspired front fascia, a sport-enhanced suspension and black badges. They’re joined by a black rear spoiler and a black mirror cap.

With gas prices hovering near all-time highs, many people will probably be interested in the Camry Hybrid, which offers a manufacturer-estimated fuel economy rating of up to 51 mpg CT, 53 mpg highway and up to 52 mpg. It has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, two electric motors and a small lithium-ion battery pack. This setup enables the hybrid to produce a combined output of 208 hp (155 kW / 211 PS).
