The 2018 Toyota Camry is the eighth generation of the best-selling sedan. It now boasts sportier styling and focuses on the driving experience.
In the past, some would see the midsize sedan as a boring and blah vehicle. It had a somewhat stiff and plain look, with impressive quality, but that was it. It was appealing to an older generation but garnered little to no appreciation from others. This year, Toyota decided to change that.
According to The Car Connection, 2018 is a year of an all-new generation of the best-selling mid-size sedan. This is now the eighth generation in the Camry's 35 years of existence.
The all-new Toyota Camry now offers stylish and more expressive styling. The midsize sedan also gets more sophisticated suspension giving better driving and handling. It also promises improved fuel efficiency.
CNET Roadshow reported that the new Toyota midsize sedan made its official debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. It is once more available in four trim levels: the base LE, a better-equipped XLE, a sporty SE, and an upscale XSE. There will also be a Camry Hybrid.
The SE and XSE version will receive more aggressive bumpers, mesh grille inserts, rocker panels, rear lip spoilers, and a rear diffuser. The XSE sets itself apart with 19-inch beautiful black machine finish alloy wheels.
The Toyota Camry's interior will focus on visually appealing aesthetics, while still retaining a practical and intuitive layout. The front seats get a more comfortable supportive redesign. The interior will focus on high-grade soft-touch materials as well.
The 2018 Camry will also get a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, auto high beams, and radar cruise control. Higher trim levels will get blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
The Japanese automobile manufacturer gives the 2018 sedan a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. No power figures are available yet but it will definitely offer more power and an expected best-in-class fuel economy. The current year's Camry has 178 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque.
The 2018 Toyota Camry will be on sale later this summer. No pricing is available, but the base pricing should be near the $23,070 base price of the 2017 model.
