In a departure from the more traditional body styles Toyota usually showcases, the 2018 Toyota Camry is full of aggressive style. Toyota’s eighth generation of the best-selling sedan wears more appealing sheet metal, and a new chassis promises to deliver a more exciting drive.
The new Camry is lower, wider and curvier, with a sleeker, more aerodynamic profile. The design change also warrants a new Camry logo.
To give the sporty SE and XSE versions more visual pop, they receive more aggressive bumpers, rocker panels, mesh grille insert, rear lip spoiler and rear diffuser. The XSE sets itself apart from the SE with 19-inch black machine-finish alloy wheels.
The latest Toyota Entune 3.0 system handles infotainment duties with standard navigation. Options include a JBL premium audio system, 10-inch color head-up display and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Missing from the options list are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
The 2018 Camry has a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine working in tandem with an eight-speed automatic transmission, or an updated 3.5-liter V6 pushing about 268hp which is similar to the 2017 Camry. The hybrid drivetrain to go along with the new four-cylinder engine promises a more exciting drive with Sport mode. Sport brings better acceleration with an electric boost from the hybrid system
The 2018 Camry will go on sale late this summer. Pricing details aren’t available yet, but base pricing shouldn’t be far off from $23,070.
