The 1998 Camry featured new options that included two different sound systems and several new body colors. Subtle updates to upper trim levels, a slight horsepower boost for the four-cylinder models and upgrades to the interior, which included a new JBL audio system, climate control, and more marked the only changes for 1999. The 2000 model year offered basic updates to trim levels and a new Value Package that boasted all-powered accessories.
A larger, quieter interior, upgraded safety features and improved drive were the notable changes for 2001. No changes were in store for 2002, with a new 3.0-liter V6 engine that offered 240 hp debuting for 2003, along with the Limited Edition Camry. An entry-level standard model was introduced in 2004 with all models getting a style update for 2005. New features for this model year include: new exterior style, new grille, updated head and tail lamps, new wheels, Optitron gauges, a new five-speed transmission, audio controls on the steering wheel and upgraded seat fabrics.
The Camry would not see any updates for 2006. But in 2007, an all-new design was introduced, offering more interior room, more luxury features, a more powerful V6 engine that could make 268 hp and an available hybrid model. Following the major redesign, there would be no major updates for model years 2008-2009. In 2010, the Camry got a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder base, an upgraded six-speed transmission, restyled tail lamps and front grille, Bluetooth integration for lower trim levels and stability control. 2011 would yield no changes, with a completely redesigned Camry issued in 2012. A new 6 touchscreen was the big update for 2013, standard across all trim levels. There would be no major changes for 2014.
