NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Unveiled The Updated Camry XSE
November 28, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
A brand-new Camry XSE vehicle from Toyota was presented; it will compete in the 2024 NASCAR Cup season. The Toyota Camry TRD Next Gen, which finished the past two competitive seasons with 18 wins and 25 poles, is followed by the Camry XSE Next Gen.
Based on the seventh-generation Mustang, the “Dark Horse,” Ford Performance presented a new version of the Mustang earlier this month that will compete in the Cup starting in the next season.
Calty Design and Toyota Racing Development collaborated to make sure the body style elements closely resembled the newly revealed 2025 Toyota Camry XSE.
A unique hammerhead design on the front fascia with an upper grille slot integrated into the redesigned sleek and broad headlamps is one of the new characteristics of the Toyota XSE. C-shaped corner vents are also located on the exterior of the wider lower grille area, and the hood has new character lines and hood duct outlets. The car’s rear fascia has chamfered bumper corners on the back of the corner panels that merge into the rear bumper in addition to updated quarter panel style.

The revised, slimmer rear lights and these characteristics offer the 2019 Camry racing car a more contoured look.
“As demonstrated by the new street-based Toyota Camry, Toyota’s attention to detail will be aptly displayed in the 2024 Camry XSE racing vehicle. Paul Doleshal, general manager of motorsports for Toyota Motor North America, stated, “We are thrilled to take this car to the track and continue to achieve success with it for years to come.
“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. The amount of work that went into the production of this car cannot be overstated.”
With the Camry in the NCS, the GR Supra in the Xfinity Series, and the Tundra TRD Pro in the Trucks division, Toyota is still the only manufacturer in NASCAR to have three nameplates on display throughout the three national series.

Toyota has won 180 Cup races, three championships, 201 Xfinity victories, and four series crowns since entering both Cup and Xfinity in 2007. Toyota has won 228 races and nine truck championships since entering the truck market in 2004.
Toyota’s dedication to ongoing development both on and off the racetrack is the cornerstone of our company’s involvement with NASCAR. According to David Wilson, president of TRD, “Our Camry XSE race car embodies that motto and faithfully captures the essential design elements of the all-new production Toyota Camry.”

“We look forward to working closely with our race team partners to optimize the performance of the newly designed Camry race car as we get ready for the 2024 season. That way, we can carry on our tradition of setting lap records, winning races, and going for championships while driving a Camry.”
The yearly preseason Clash demonstration, which will once again take place on a quarter-mile asphalt track inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, will mark the first race for the Camry XSE in February.
