Exterior Design

If you loved the 2017 Camry’s sporty styling, you’re in for a treat! The 2018 model promises even sharper, more athletic styling with a lower and wider body, as well as a brand-new logo. The performance-focused SE and XSE trims will arrive with a mesh grille insert, a rear lip spoiler and diffuser, and restyled bumpers, while the XSE alone gets 19-inch black machine-finish alloy wheels. New rear double wishbone suspension, coupled with greater use of ultra-high strength steel, gives the 2018 Camry responsive yet solid driving dynamics.

Performance and Powertrains

For 2018, the entry-level Camry sports a new 2.5L 4-cylinder and 8-speed automatic transmission duo. Specs have yet to be released, but should stay somewhere around the current Camry’s 4-cylinder output: 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. The new 4-cylinder will also be found in the Hybrid, which gets a CVT and Sport Mode for quicker gear changes and acceleration. According to Toyota, it’s fuel economy ratings will be best-in-class. A 3.5L V6 is also on the horizon, and while engine specs aren’t available, it’s expected to dish out around 268 hp.

Interior Features

The 2018 Camry’s captivating style changes will extend to the interior, which will feature cozier, more supportive seats and soft-touch materials. Inside the cockpit, drivers will have access to the new Toyota Entune 3.0 system for easy navigation around Santa Ana or Culver City. Optional features, including a 10-inch Head-Up Display, built-in Wi-Fi, and a JBL premium audio system, are also on the table.
