2018 Toyota Camry Specs and Features
Mechanically speaking, the 2018 Toyota Camry offers the same powertrains. Apparently, they are the new 3.5-litre V6 with D-4S Fuel Injection and an all-new 2.5-litre inline-4 gasoline engine, which will come mated to a new 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission. The third is a Toyota Hybrid System or THS II. A maximum output of 295 horsepower is expected.
The new TNGA or Toyota New Global Architecture platform used will reduce weight and improve handling.In its crosshairs are a higher torque, higher power, and lower fuel consumption. Toyota’s Variable Valve-Timing-intelligent Electric (VVT-iE) is more than 40 percent more efficient when compared to previous versions. The new engines will be extremely fuel efficient. No manual transmissions are offered as of now. Hybrids are equipped with an eCVT transmission.
2018 Toyota Camry Exterior Design
The exteriors of the 2018 Toyota Camry is similar to the 2016 Prius. The recent Angry Birds front-end styling is expected on the new car. This was seen in the 2017 Corolla as well. A sleeker profile is also expected. By lowering the height of the car, the overall vehicle height is approximately one inch lower than its predecessors.No interior space is sacrificed for this feature, however. The swept-back design improves aerodynamics as well. The front and the rear fenders have been facelifted as well, resulting in a new and sporty look for the new vehicle as well.
The lower hip point and the redesigned roofline provides for a low center of gravity. The sedan has a very expressive outlook. The car is instantly recognizable as belonging to a new generation as well. Smoke-tinted rear combination lamps wrap up the changes at the rear. The front mesh grille is also very adept at leveling with the driver which allows for better visibility as well.

The interiors are also redeveloped. Soft-touch materials with upgrades complete the package. The leg space is comfortable, the seating rows are spacious, and the infotainment system is great as well. Also available is a 10-inch colour heads-up display with a seven-inch screen within the instrument cluster, and another eight-inch screen which displays audio, climate control and navigation details. All of these are in the center console. On offer is a panoramic glass roof with a moonroof.
The 2018 Camry showcases the Entune infotainment system. Entune 3.0 is available with a remote start and door unlocking capability, guest-driver monitor, and a very important vehicle status notifications.

The interiors are nothing but fine examples of fine craftsmanship and a wistfulness to bring the future forward.
