For those of you who’ve always wondered, the word Camry is derived from a phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri, which means “little crown”.
It can also mean “beyond compare”.
Other cars come and go, but the subject of this 2015 Toyota Camry first drive review soldiers on, year after year, remaining one of America’s best selling cars. On average, some 400,000 Camrys find their way onto somebody’s driveway each year. What’s more on average, Toyota builds a new Camry every 54 seconds.
