2023 Toyota CAMRY – Now Available in FWD and AWD
The 2023 Toyota Camry continues its longstanding presence in the automotive industry as one of the longest-running nameplates. With an impressive streak of 20 consecutive years as America’s top-selling midsize sedan, the Camry introduces a refreshed Nightshade Special Edition for the 2023 model year. Toyota was one of the first manufacturers to offer the distinct Nightshade edition, providing a factory-designed package without the premium price tag. In 2023, the Camry Nightshade is available in three different moods, allowing buyers to choose from Midnight Black, White, and the new Reservoir Blue exterior colors.
The Nightshade Special Edition gives the 2023 Camry a premium sport sedan look and stance. It is available in SE grade front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and hybrid models. The black front grille with a Sport Mesh insert is borrowed from the Camry TRD model, while the Nightshade also features black rear spoiler, mirror caps, and exterior badges. For the 2023 edition, it adds black-trimmed headlights and taillights, giving it an even more aggressive appearance.
The standout design feature of the Nightshade Edition is the 19-inch matte bronze aluminum alloy wheels. These rims provide a striking contrast against any of the three body colors offered. The standard SE grade features, including the sport-tuned suspension, are carried over to the Nightshade Edition.
The Nightshade Edition is designed to appeal to drivers who desire a car that stands out and garners attention, as well as those who appreciate a designer look at an affordable price. Its popularity is increasing, with the Nightshade package accounting for about 5% of Camry sales in 2021 and projected to reach around 7% in 2022.
The Toyota Camry, now in its eighth generation, is approaching its 40th anniversary in America. With its striking coupe-inspired design and diverse range of models, the Camry remains a top contender in the midsize sedan segment. Offering 18 different choices, the 2023 Camry caters to a wide range of budgets and preferences. One notable option is the Nightshade Edition, available on all four-cylinder and hybrid models.
