Toyota Camry - The Best Selling Car

When you’re America’s Best-Selling car, it’s no surprise you eat awards for breakfast. The competition gets tougher every year, yet in 2019 again, the Toyota Camry is up for the challenge. Take a look below at each of the years Camrys and see how they compared to their sales numbers the previous year.

2002 434,135 units sold

2002 Toyota Camry

The Camry is all new for the 2002 model year, and this year marks the beginning of the Toyota sedan’s 17-consecutive-year run as the top-selling car in America.

2003 413,296 units sold

2003 Toyota Camry

New-Camry fever appears to wane for 2003, and Toyota sells slightly fewer than it did the year before. Still, in no way can over 400,000 sales be considered a down year.

2004 426,990 units sold

2004 Toyota Camry

The Camry’s unexciting reign atop the sales charts is made more interesting for 2004, when Toyota redesigns the Solara convertible & coupe.

2005 431,703 units sold

2005 Toyota Camry

The Camry remains at the top of the sales charts in 2005.

2006 448,445 units sold

2006 Toyota Camry

Sales of the Toyota Camry begin to ramp up, apparently in response to the release of the all-new 2007-model-year example in early 2006. The new Camry sports more interesting styling and an available 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6. Also this year, the Camry gains a fuel-efficient hybrid model.

2007 473,108 units sold

2007 Toyota Camry

Another year, another Camry podium finish in the sales race. The Camry’s sales volume is the highest recorded since the Oldsmobile Cutlass’s epic 1979 sales of 518,160 units.

2008 436,617 units sold

2008 Toyota Camry

Camry sales decline significantly—though, remember, 2008 is the year the American economy drives off the rails.

2009 356,824 units sold

2009 Toyota Camry

Recession-era sales leadership means moving only 356,824 Camrys.

2010 327,804 units sold

2010 Toyota Camry

Despite Toyota’s massive unintended-acceleration snafu stealing headlines in 2009 and 2010, the Camry again is the best-selling car in America. The unintended-acceleration furor turns out to be over little more than ill-fitted floor mats, not actual mechanical defects.

2011 308,510 units sold

2011 Toyota Camry

With an all-new model for 2012, the Camry sedan still outsells every other car in America, and with its lowest sales volume in a decade.

2012 404,886 units sold

2012 Toyota Camry

The Camry's total redesign proves to be a powerful sales booster, with 2012 volumes eclipsing 2011 volumes by nearly 100,000 units.

2013 408,484 units sold

2013 Toyota Camry

Little changes in the Camry’s world for 2013. It again takes top sales honors, marking its 12th year doing so.

The four-door sedan tops the industry in car sales yet again.

2015 429,355 units sold

2015 Toyota Camry

Just three years after its then most recent redesign, the Camry undergoes a heavy update for 2015 that brings more expressive styling and a claimed focus on driving dynamics and sportiness. Sales increase for the fourth straight year, and again the Toyota is the top-selling car in the U.S.

2016 388,618 units sold

2016 Toyota Camry

The Toyota’s sales decline for 2016, but this has less to do with the Camry than with market forces overall: Trucks and SUVs are ridiculously popular, so sales of traditional cars begin to fade.

2017 387,081 units sold

2017 Toyota Camry

Car sales continue their slow decline in the U.S. in 2017, although that same year the Camry is all new. Despite being much improved, the new Camry is outsold by the RAV4 crossover with which it shares dealership showrooms. But it's still the best-selling car in America.

2018 343,439 units sold

2018 Toyota Camry

In 2018, the Camry wins the Car race but takes a back seat to the RAV4 crossover (427,170 units sold) it shares Toyota dealership floor space with.

What will happen in 2019, will Camry be the the leader of the pack again? As of the end of October, Camry sales are at 285,058 units according to the Toyota Newsroom.
