Toyota debuted its first ever transverse engine, front-wheel-drive car in 1963. Ever since the Camry has been a skilled family car.
Camry has been the most successful luxury car worldwide for more than six successive generations.
Now Toyota’s boss, Akio Toyoda has completely revamped the Camry series and launched an all-new-eighth-generation model of the luxury car, new Toyota Camry 2018.
The new Camry is based on an all-new global platform, one that has more in common with the Toyoto Prius C-HR variant.
The new Camry’s body is constructed from a more high-tensile steel with better laser welding. It is slightly lower and wider than the previous models with a more sophisticated rear suspension.
The new Camry’s face is accentuated by a two-piece grille comprised of flowing thin and thick treatments – key elements of the Camry’s “Keen Look” design philosophy.
It is worth mentioning that Camry will again be available in four grades: LE, XLE, SE and XSE.
The completely redesigned interior is a fusion of functionality, futuristic styling, and a high degree of personal space and craftsmanship. The front seats have been completely re-engineered with improved ergonomics, providing maximum comfort with a newfound level of ease and engagement to match the new Camry’s elevated performance and athleticism.
According to the company, three new powertrains will be available on the new 2018 Camry. They include a new 3.5-liter V6 with D-4S Fuel Injection and an all-new 2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine, which comes paired to a new 8-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission (8AT), and a next-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS II).
According to Toyota, fuel economy with new four-cylinder engine is estimated by the EPA at 29 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway and 34 combined. That’s 26 percent better than the previous models.
Thanks to the new suspension, the Camry now has better handling and feels lighter on its feet while taking turns.
The new Camry will cost almost $24000.
