Toyota is revamping the Camry for the 2018 model-year with a more efficient, powerful engine lineup, stylish design and improved driving dynamics as the midsize sedan enters its eighth generation, Toyota announced at the Detroit auto show.
The 2018 Camry, which will be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture, extends its wheelbase by 2 inches and lowers the roof and hood height by 1 inch and 1.6 inches.
Toyota will offer a trio of new powertrains, including a 3.5L V-6 with D-4S fuel injection that's paired with a new 8-speed automatic transmission (8AT). Toyota will also offer a 2.5L inline-4 gasoline engine, as well as its next-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS II) that would be paired with a continuously variable transmission.
Additional safety features include the standard Toyota Safety Sense package that includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, adaptive radar-based cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, and automatic high beam. New available safety technology includes a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and intelligent clearance sonar with rear cross-traffic braking.
Toyota gave its Camry a heavy refresh for the 2015 model year.
