In an effort to increase its fuel economy by up to 30 percent, Toyota is going to revamp its engine lineup, which could see the next Camry losing its V6 in favor of a turbocharged four-cylinder.

Toyota recently introduced a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder in the 2015 Lexus NX 200t crossover, but it's expected that the engine will eventually be offered in several other Lexus and Toyota models. With 235 horsepower on tap, the 2.0L turbocharged engine could replace the Camry's V6 and is on par with the turbocharged four-cylinder engines offered in the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata.

The next-generation Toyota Camry will be the first model to be built on the automaker's Toyota New Global Architecture with a new platform and engine lineup. The new Camry could debut as early as sometime in 2016.
