On Monday, Toyota Racing officially unveiled a brand-new design for the NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Camry XSE that will hit the track during the 2024 season, beginning with the Busch Light Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum.
The new body design, which was brought to life by Toyota, Toyota Racing Development, and Calty Designs, utilizes the same body styling characteristics observed on the recently-released 2025 Toyota Camry XSE as closely as possible.
Dubbed the Camry XSE Next Gen, will serve as the official predecessor of the Toyota Camry TRD Next Gen, which has been used for the last two seasons with 18 victories and 25 pole positions.
New features of this latest-edition Toyota Camry race car include distinctive hammerhead styling on the front facia with an upper grille slot that is tied into the updated slim and wide headlights.
The outside of the larger lower grille area also features C-shaped corner vets, while the hood features new character lines and new hood duct exits. The rear facia of the car includes revised quarter panel styling and chamfered bumper corners on the back of the corner panels that blend into the rear bumper. These features, along with updated thinner taillights, give the new Toyota Camry XSE race car a new, more sculpted appearance.
“The 2024 Camry XSE race car will properly highlight Toyota’s attention to detail as has been showcased in the new street version Toyota Camry. We are excited to bring this car to the race track and continue to achieve success with it for years to come,” said Paul Doleshal, group manager of motorsports for Toyota Motor North America. “The amount of work put into this car’s production cannot be overstated, and we thank everyone at TRD and Calty Design for their efforts in creating a premier vehicle for our team partners to compete for wins and championships.”
Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), 23XI Racing, and LEGACY MOTOR CLUB will be the three organizations spearheading full-time efforts under the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) banner for 2024.
The manufacturer continues to be the only manufacturer in NASCAR to showcase three different nameplates across the three national series – utilizing the Toyota Camry in Cup, Toyota Supra in Xfinity, and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro in Trucks.
Since joining NASCAR’s top-two series in 2007, the manufacturer has earned 180 wins and three titles in Cup, plus 201 wins and four championships in the Xfinity Series. Joining the Truck Series in 2004, the manufacturer has won 228 races and nine championships.
“The foundation of Toyota’s presence in NASCAR is our commitment to continuous improvement on and off the race track. Our Camry XSE race car reinforces that mantra and accurately reflects the key design attributes of the all-new production Toyota Camry,” said David Wilson, president of TRD. “As we prepare for the 2024 season, we look forward to working closely with our race team partners to optimize the performance of the newly-designed Camry race car so we can continue our legacy of leading laps, winning races, and competing for championships with the Camry nameplate.”
With the addition of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB to the manufacturer’s lineup in 2024, the manufacturer will have eight full-time entries on track every weekend, plus a part-time entry for LEGACY MC owner, Jimmie Johnson.
Both Christopher Bell and Erik Jones will utilize this new body style in the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series test session at Phoenix Raceway.
