AWD Camry doesn' exist anymore?[edit]

In the past, a 4cyl, 4 speed automatic, 4WD Camry used to be offered in Japan ONLY. It was the only AWD Camry offered. However, with the current generation (XV50), Toyota Japan has done away with all non-hybrid Camry vehicles, in Japan. This includes the 4WD Camry variant. As such, toyota.jp no longer makes any reference to a 4WD camry, and indeed, the car search tool does not make reference of it, either (4WD versions of the Corolla Altis - similar to the Corolla sedan in the US market - still exist). As far as I am aware, 4WD was never offered (after the transition to the wide box Toyota Camry, back in the early 90s), on any non JDM Toyota Camry. I propose removing this reference from the vehicle infobox, since it is no longer true.

2015 update?[edit]

Is there a reason why there's nothing mentioned about the MY 2015 update? I would have thought someone would have gotten around to it by now. Carguy1701 (talk) 14:36, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

It's here. OSX (talkcontributions) 15:14, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Incomplete sentence[edit]

What's the correct completion of the article's "The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rated the Camry Hybrid LE as:"? Vaughan Pratt (talk) 16:25, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

It had to do with the fuel economy table below it in the same section. Someone obviously later added information about the wind tunnel performance that broke the link. I simply remove the sentence as the table is better served by itself. OSX (talkcontributions) 03:51, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

XV50 Development[edit]

I have been very busy traveling this summer and had wanted to start a pet project of mine, giving in-depth info on development of every mass-market automobile from interviews of the respective programme personnel for each car. I promised Stepho-wrs all this info, but have been overwhelmed with the volume of items I need to dissect and new business ventures in personal life.

Biggest issue I have is, the difficulty of translating either Japanese kanji, hiragana, or etc. Two, is the need to screenshot information. I have information on development of the XV50 from 2007 to 2011, but will need to carefully extract content from each page and of course, translate to perfection. Much of my previous submissions regarding developmental stuff on Japanese cars were gathered similarly, but I have found more in-depth pieces. Currently waiting on full information for the XV70.--Carmaker1 (talk) 04:12, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Much appreciated.  Stepho  talk  11:22, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome. Here's an example of what I intend to send you gradually: Camry III 1987, 1987-88; 250T LS (XF20) 1991. Bear in mind, that I had to implement watermarks in order to protect against third parties grabbing and reusing what I've gathered (which they did not pay for in bulk). Combining some loosely kept semi-private access intellectual property, design patent information, retrospective accounts/interviews, timelines, and etc, this is how I plan to write on vehicle development.--Carmaker1 (talk) 19:34, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
