Even General Motors now knows the Camry is no longer considered a "Japanese car." According to Ad Age, GM will soon launch a new advertisement for the redesigned 2008 Chevrolet Malibu with the tag line, "We're tired of being a foreign car in our own country."
In 1986, the Camry won Consumer Reports' first Best Buy award. A two-door version, the Camry Solara, was introduced in 1999, followed shortly by a convertible. A hybrid version was introduced in 2007.
