5 Cool Facts about the 2018 Toyota Camry

Toyota showed off the 2018 Camry earlier this year at the 2017 Detroit auto show and just based on its looks alone, it means business. The Camry is tired of being ordinary, and the new Camry jumps right into bolder flavors, promising more engaging driving dynamics, advanced safety features, and cutting-edge technology to go with the new lines of the exterior design that’s guaranteed to turn heads.

 
Wider, Lower, and Longer.

In comparison to the outgoing Camry, the new car is 1.2 inches lower, 0.4 inches longer, and 1.3 inches wider, thanks to its new platform and as a result, the roof and hood are 1.0 inch and 1.5 inches lower. This not only gives the Camry a bolder look on the road but also an improved ride and handling.

 
Still powered by a V-6

Contrary to rumors that it would feature a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, Toyota has kept the V-6 in the 2018 Camry. Featuring Toyota’s direct- and port-injection system, the new 3.5-liter unit should be more powerful than the unit replaces.

 
Standard Eight-Speed Transmission

On gas-only variants of the 2018 Toyota Camry, the eight-speed automatic will come standard. To minimize power loss from the torque converter, this new gearbox has a direct lock-up feature from second to eighth gear, which helps the new Camry accelerate quicker and put power down to the road more efficiently than ever.

 
Going green while looking great

The 2018 Camry comes with an SE trim like its predecessor, however, the CVT comes with a Sport mode that mimics six simulated gears and a paddle shifter for manual mode operation in the SE trim. Going into Sport mode also improves the car’s acceleration, thanks to the hybrid system’s electric power boost which sheds the thoughts that hybrid vehicles are slow.

 
Active Safety Comes Standard

Toyota has added its Toyota Safety Sense suite as standard in the 2018 Camry as well as Toyota Safety Sense P, which includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, and lane departure warning with steering assist. It also includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, which bundles together forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.
