The Camry Gracia was introduced in December 1996 to succeed the Scepter. Available body types included a 4-door sedan and a station wagon. The base model was the Japanese-made Camry designed for the North American market, which was modified to suit the Japanese market.

The body conforming to the GOA collision testing standards had dimensions of 4,760/4,775 mm in length, 1,785 mm in width, and 1,420/1,470 mm in height. It shared the platform with the front-wheel-drive version of Windom, with a choice of a V6 2,496 cc 200 PS engine (2MZ-FE) or an inline 4-cylinder 2,163 cc 140 PS engine (5S-FE). The former was combined with the ECT-i automatic transmission that integrated engine and transmission controls, and could restrict unnecessary shifting into 4th gear depending on the incline of a road. All models came standard-equipped with ABS, dual SRS airbags, and 3-point seatbelts for all five seats, and SRS side airbags were an option. A new traction control system that integrated engine and braking controls was available as an option for the 2.5-liter model. In April 1997, a V-flex full-time 4-wheel-drive (4WD) version was added to the wagon model, and a 4WD sedan was added in August 1998.

In the minor model change in August 1999, the Gracia subname was dropped from the sedan, leaving the Camry Gracia name exclusively for the wagon line. The sedan survived the following model change in September 2001, whereas the wagon (Camry Gracia) was discontinued.
