When it comes to the midsize sedan class, Toyota Camry is one option nobody should ignore. And with the upcoming 2018 Toyota Camry, we can always confirm that this sedan from the Japanese automobile maker remains one of the best options out there. Compared with the previous model year, it is most likely that the 2018 model year of Toyota Camry will remain unchanged.
2018 Toyota Camry Interior
In fact, we can always expect that the new Toyota Camry will provide one of the most spacious and comfortable cabins among its competitors. The Camry has been renowned for the abundance of legroom and headroom both up front and in the back, so even the taller adult passengers can still sit comfortably. In total, the trunk space is at 15.4 cubic feet, which is actually pretty average for its class, although it is plenty in most situations.
For the driver, it is always easy to operate the controls inside the Toyota Camry—they are even glove friendly! The operation of climate controls is simple and intuitive, while the standard 6.1-inch Entune touchscreen for infotainment system is upgradable to a 7-inch touchscreen. Although the graphics are not as crisp as the top of the segment and there’s an absence of full smartphone integration, the screens are easy to use and pretty straightforward.
2018 Toyota Camry Engine
Under the hood, it seems like there will be only a little change with the new Toyota Camry powertrain specifications. Just like the 2017 model year, it’s most likely that the 2018 edition will come standard with all-wheel drive and a 2.5L 4-cyinder engine capable of producing 178 horsepower of total output and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. Meanwhile, for the higher trim levels, it seems like the more powerful 3.5L V6 will still be used to power the car. For the 2017 model year, the V6 engine produces total output of 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque.
What about the performance? We expect that there will be at least a little improvement with the new Toyota Camry in terms of fuel economy, although the current ratings produced by the 2017 Toyota Camry are not too disappointing. The base 4-cylinder, for instance, takes 8.3 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 mph, which is considerably slower in the class and has a 28 mpg combined of fuel economy. Meanwhile, the V6’s estimated fuel economy is at 24 mpg combined, which is pretty average compared to the V6 engines of the rivals.
2018 Toyota Camry Price
Rumor has it that this upcoming Toyota Camry will be available at around $24,000. This price is quite surprising—good surprise—considering Toyota provides much convenience in such affordable price. This is also known as the same price as the 2017 version.
In general, the 2018 Toyota Camry is most likely to remain as a midsize sedan with roomy and comfortable interior, along with more spacious rear seating. It also has a luxury and sporty feel and look, along with user-friendly controls and powerful and smooth V6. When the 2018 Camry will be released is still unknown, but it is said that the sedan has been ready for its debut, which will take place at the 2017 North American International Auto Show.
