All-New 2018 Toyota Camry Unveiled in Detroit

Laking Toyota

Thanks to a lower seating position and a lowered centre of gravity, along with a revised rear suspension, the new 2018 Toyota Camry will not only feel faster and more agile, but it actually will be.

The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling vehicle in the midsize sedan segment for a while now, and this year the Camry gets a complete makeover that will ensure that it remains at the top of its class for quite a while longer. The new 2018 Toyota Camry keeps everything we know and love about the car, then adds a sporty architecture and a much more aggressive design that is sure to get it noticed out on the road.

A New Architecture for the 2018 Toyota Camry

The 2018 Toyota Camry will be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture, a new philosophy put forth by Toyota that will define how its future models are designed, engineered and packaged. The idea behind TNGA is to preserve all of the features that have dictated Toyota’s success such as resale value, build quality, comfort, and safety; then adding a much more dynamic and sporty driving experience to the mix.

The first thing you notice about the 2018 Toyota Camry is its design. The car is lower but wider, and you also notice that it is longer. This creates a sleeker overall profile that really stands out. There will be five trims offered in the new Camry: L, LE, XLE, SE, and XSE. The last two are the sportier versions, and you can tell right away when looking at them. Featuring black wheels, quad exhausts in the back, a spoiler, more aggressive bumpers with an integrated diffuser below the rear bumper and more prominent grill, 2018 Toyota Camry SE and XSE models are sure to turn heads.

New Engines for the 2018 Toyota Camry

Thanks to a lower seating position and a lowered centre of gravity, along with a revised rear suspension, the new 2018 Toyota Camry will not only feel faster and more agile, but it actually will be.

There will be three new engines available in the 2018 Toyota Camry, starting with the new 2.5-liter, four-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine. This engine was designed to offer more power and more torque while reducing fuel consumption at the same time. Toyota engineers increased the compression ratio and added the latest version of Toyota’s VVT-iE valve timing technology in order to achieve an unprecedented thermal efficiency of 40 percent. This should give the new 2.5-liter a lot more power while also making it the most fuel-efficient engine it its class.

There will also be a new 3.5-liter V6 engine as well as a new hybrid setup for the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The latter will get a CVT continuously variable automatic transmission while the two other engines are now paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. We should know more about power output and fuel economy ratings as we get closer to the 2018 Camry’s summer launch date.

Finally, the new 2018 Camry get’s Toyota’s complete suite of active safety technologies called Toyota Safety Sense-P as standard equipment. That means every 2018 Camry will have Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA); and Automatic High Beams (AHB). Select models will also come with standard Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
