Toyota Camry, 2012: More car, lower prices for most models

Toyota is spending a reported $150 million to market its seventh generation Camry, the newest version of the best-selling car in the United States for the past nine years.

The marketing campaign includes 30-second spots in the current World Series, with the new commercial continuing  through the 2012 Super Bowl.

But what current television commercial, which details the "reinvention" of the Camry, doesn't detail is the new price structure for the Camry, including a unique concept.
