The Toyota Camry has been America’s best-selling car for the last 15 years, meaning it knows a thing or two about giving drivers what they want. Reliable, smart, and sophisticated, the Camry has proved time and time again that it’s anything but basic. For its eighth-generation, this sedan has gone through a total evolution, adding newfound sporty performance and style to its already proven dependability. Take a look at the updates below and see what has the engineers at Toyota so excited.
2018 Toyota Camry Updates
We love the 2017 Toyota Camry for its undeniable appeal in terms of mechanics and design, however, the engineers at Toyota have completely evolved the model for 2018 utilizing TNGA, or Toyota New Global Architecture. This strategy represents a complete overhaul of the way the company designs, engineers, and packages its vehicles. In order to receive the TNGA feel, the 2018 Camry gets a new jaw-dropping design, more innovative technology, big safety systems, and more advanced performance features.
Key Differences Between the 2017 Camry and the 2018 Camry
For 2018, the Toyota Camry gets updates all across the board. 2018 Camry drivers will enjoy boosted power and better fuel economy compared to the 2017 model thanks to new engine options like a 3.5-liter V6 with D-4S Fuel Injection and an all-new 2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine, which comes paired to a new 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission compared to last year’s 6-speed transmission. The 2018 Camry also gets Toyota Safety Sense P standard on all trims while the 2017 model only had bits and pieces of that safety suite available as part of an options package.
On the design side, the 2018 model gets a sleeker profile than the 2017 model by lowering the hip points of the occupants by almost 1-inch in the front and 1.2-inches at the rear. The 2017 Camry’s more circular headlights have been exchanged with more angular headlights that feature LED accents to create a light signature that’s hard to forget. Finally, the interior design of the 2017 Camry is given an update as well, starting with swapping out a traditional dashboard for a more asymmetrical one. Toyota adds a seven-inch gauge display in addition to its eight-inch touchscreen for Entune infotainment, plus WiFi for easy device connection.
