Since the first ever transverse-engine, front-wheel-drive Toyota car in 1963, the Camry has been excellent into holding a long distinction as a competent family car.
With more than six successive generations, the Camry is undoubtedly true to its reputation as one of the most popular luxury cars worldwide.
But now, Akio Toyoda – Toyota’s boss – wants to revamp the Camry series completely and launch an all new 8th generation model of the luxury car.
The new Camry is based on an all-new global platform, one that has more in common with the Toyoto Prius C-HR variant.
The exterior body of the new model is constructed from a more high-tensile steel with better laser welding. It is slightly lower and wider than the previous models with features of a more sophisticated rear suspension.
The key elements of the Camry’s “Keen Look” design philosophy is its face, accentuated by a two-piece grille comprised of flowing thin and thick treatments.
It is worth mentioning that Camry will again be available in four grades: LE, XLE, SE and XSE.
The interior is a fusion of redesigned functionality, futuristic styling, and a high degree of personal space and craftsmanship.
The front seats have been completely re-engineered with improved ergonomics, providing maximum comfort with a newfound level of ease and engagement to match the new Camry’s elevated performance and athleticism.
According to the company, three new powertrains will be available on the new 2018 Camry. They include a new 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 (8AT), and a next-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS II).
According to Toyota, fuel economy with new four-cylinder engine is estimated by the EPA at 29 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway and 34 combined. That’s 26 percent better than the previous models.
Thanks to the new suspension, the Camry now has better handling and feels lighter on its feet while taking turns.
