Serving Tallahassee, Panama City, Marianna, Lake City, Valdosta

The 2017 Toyota Camry has enjoyed the success of its predecessors. It remains the top-selling car in the country. While the outgoing represents an update over previous generations, the 2018 Toyota Camry represents a truly new sedan. The exterior, interior, performance and features have all been stepped up to match modern sensibilities.

Performance

The 2017 Camry has been stiffened for better driving dynamics. For 2018, engineers took that even further. Improved once again, the new build has four-point engine mounts and a double-wishbone suspension. While the current four-cylinder engine produces an ample 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. 2018 Camry drivers will enjoy boosted power and better fuel economy. For driving enthusiasts, a new 3.5-liter V-6 boosts power over the 2017 V6 model. Contributing to driving precision, both engines trade the six-speed transmission for an eight-speed one.

Appearance

The new Camry has a different, bolder look. A wide lower valance opening with horizontal slats marks the LE. A blacked-out mesh lower valance marks the XSE. New lines add more character. The 2017 Camry’s rounder headlights have been exchanged for the angular headlights with LED accents create a light signature. The wide taillights from 2017 are still there, but they move onto the rear fenders and are offset by a new sculpted rear bumper. New features include a vent just beneath the taillights and a quad-tip dual exhaust. Adding to the changes, the new Camry is longer, wider and lower.

The 2018 Camry definitely represents a departure in Toyota’s interior design. The more traditional dashboard is replaced by an asymmetrical one. Taller drivers will appreciate that the new steering wheel can telescope further. Through special engineering techniques, noise and harshness have been decreased, helping everyone enjoy the ride more. As before, there’s an eight-inch touchscreen for Entune infotainment. The 2018 menus have been fine-tuned for easier interactions. The brand’s exclusive navigation app comes along for the ride, making it one of the most affordable ways to bring maps and directions to your screen. Toyota also adds a seven-inch gauge display as part of its human-machine interface. Wi-Fi and a JBL sound system have been added to the tech roster.

Safety

The 2017 Toyota Camry made headlines with ten airbags, a feature few rivals can match. It also has whiplash-lessening seats, a Toyota exclusive. The car holds a five-star federal crash rating and is a Top Safety Pick. Toyota Safety Sense features are offered on most models. For 2018, these features now become standard. This includes a forward collision warning, alerting you to stopping cars and pedestrians. This system also has an autobrake feature to reduce or even prevent impact. Lane departures can be avoided thanks to a warning with steering assist system. Adaptive cruise control leaves the driver to steer while it regulates the car’s acceleration patterns to match traffic. New 2018 features include a 10-inch color head-up system. On the windshield, this displays important information in the driver’s line of sight.
