Automotive.com ranked the 2010 Toyota Camry as one of the Top 5 Best New Cars based on the Motor Trend 2010-2011 New Cars: The Ultimate Guide, Part 5.
The review from Motor Trend described the new Toyota Camry with modest changes to the exterior of all versions but the addition of stability/traction control as standard on all versions.
The best of family cars, the Camry ranges from $20,445 to $25,925. The 2010 Camry has not seen a lot of design changes but maintains excellent performance with crisper handling and enhanced option choices. A multi-point injection fuel system and 170 horsepower continues to provide the Camry with a smooth, comfortable drive and first-class style.

October marked the beginning of production for the Toyota Highlander sport utility vehicle at the company’s plant in Princeton, Indiana. The Highlander, Toyota’s 12th North American-built model, production is a $450 million investment in a more efficient utilization of the manufacturing capacity.
Originally the Indiana production plant produced the Tundra pickup, which was consolidated last fall to the Tundra plant in Texas. The Indiana plant, which also builds the Sienna and Sequoia, has been preparing for the production of the Highlander for a year.
As a testament to Toyota’s commitment to North America, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana reacted to several months of slow production by retaining all of its 4,200 team members, who were further trained and improved manufacturing processes to prepare for the Highlander production.
TMMI now represents a $3.7 billion investment. The addition of the Highlander boosts production at other Toyota plants, such as West Virginia, where the 6-cylinder engine is made, and at nearly 250 of Toyota’s North American suppliers.
Since it was introduced in 2000, more than 1 million Highlanders have been sold in the United States.
