Though crossovers and SUVs dominate the new car market as the Sedanocalypse closes in around us, some four-door cars will always be fine. The Toyota Camry is one of them. It may have lost its U.S. sales crown to the RAV4, but no one should worry about its future. Especially after today, when Toyota announced it should get better at handling poor weather. Advertisement Toyota says the Camry is getting optional all-wheel dCamry All-Trac of the early 1990s. Sadly, no, that name is not making a comeback, which seems like a marketing misfire to me.
