Special Edition Camry, Corolla Debut in Red and Blue
Toyota is showcasing special editions of the Corolla and Camry at the Chicago Auto Show this year.
The Camry went through a mid-cycle refresh that reached showrooms for the 2015 model year that gave it a thoroughly revised body. But for 2016, you will have the chance to buy a special edition that will include 18-inch wheels specific to the package, blue stitching on the dashboard, seats and shifter and a special gauge cluster.
Along with that, the car will also come with smoked taillights, a push button ignition, wireless charging and special floor mats among other small touches. Toyota plans to build 12,000 of the special edition models.
But that isn’t the only special edition model the company is showcasing this year in the Windy City. There’s also a special edition Corolla on display. It gets special 17-inch wheels with a gloss black finish, a black interior with red stitching, the same standard smart key and push button ignition as the special Corolla and unique floor mats. Toyota will build 8,000 copies of the special edition Corolla.
Toyota didn’t say what either of the models will cost or exactly when they will arrive, but production begins in August so you can expect to start seeing them arrive late in the summer.
