The 2018 Toyota Camry is definitely going to appear at the 2017 Detroit motor show in January. Just a few days ago, the company released a teaser to announce the next-generation model. The current iteration of the best-selling car in America arrived for the 2012 model year. According to the latest reports, the new Camry will feature a much more exciting exterior design. On top of that, expect it to ride on a whole new platform. Some sources suggest that the upcoming Camry sedan is due to adopt a sportier engine range as well.
2018 Camry Design
As mentioned, the 2018 Camry redesign will make this highly popular model visually more attractive than before. It’s no secret that Toyota’s sedan has often been criticized for its bland styling. According to the teaser image that shows the rear fender, its new sheet metal seems quite promising. In that regard, expect the 2018 Toyota Camry to adopt the company’s latest design philosophy. In other words, expect a toned down version of the eye-catching design of the C-HR crossover or the new Prius.
The next-gen model will ride on Toyota’s New Global Architecture. The new modular platform that underpins the Prius will make the Camry significantly lighter than before. It will also benefit from the use of lightweight body panels such as the aluminum hood. In turn, the car will offer an enhanced driving experience as well as improved fuel efficiency. When it comes to the interior features, we’ll know more after the upcoming Detroit auto show.
Although official confirmation has yet to come, the Camry will most likely offer only four-cylinder engines. In that regard, expect it to adopt a new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 instead of the current 3.5-liter V6. The new Camry 2018 could also use an upgraded version of today’s 2.5-liter unit. Some sources even suggest that Toyota is developing a 1.5-liter turbo as the base powertrain for this sedan. Of course, we’ll disclose any new information on that matter as soon as it hits the web.
2018 Toyota Camry Pricing and Competition
The 2018 Toyota Camry is not likely to stray too far from its predecessor when it comes to pricing. Expect the entry-level model to start at around $20,000. Some of its numerous rivals include well-known names such as Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu and Kia Optima.
