Gives US/Canada origin parts content and location of assembly for 2005-2009 vehicles sold in the US (though 2009 is incomplete now).
According to the stuff there, the 2009 Camry (non-hybrid) has 75% US/Canada origin parts. For 2008 and 2007, the percentage was 70% and 75% respectively. Final assembly is listed as being both US/Canada and outside (which you can determine for each individual car by looking at the first character of the VIN).
