All New Toyota Camry for 2018

As I am driving a 2001 Nissan Maxima with over 115,000 miles, I am considering a newer car, maybe brand new, in 2017.  Toyota’s 2018 Camry will be available in late 2017.  The car’s styling has always been a bit stodgy.  Reports are saying the 2018 model will offer some sleeker styling and some important safety features.  Knowing Camry’s reliability history makes this a car I am definitely going to consider.

According to Toyota, the redesigned Camry features a lower center of gravity aimed at making it more aerodynamic and fuel efficient. The new car also has a two-inch longer wheelbase. And the hood, cowl, and dashboard height have all been lowered for better outward visibility.

Mechanically, the 2018 Camry offers the same familiar powertrains: a 3.5-liter V6, and 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Both will be paired to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, as experienced recently in Consumer Reports Highlander and Sienna test vehicles.

A four-cylinder hybrid will also be available, mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and featuring Toyota’s latest fuel-saving technology. Horsepower and fuel economy estimates were not disclosed.
