Findlay Toyota shares the new features and updates found on the 2018 Toyota Camry.
“When people think Toyota, they think Camry,” Robby Findlay, director of operations for Findlay Automotive Group said in a press release. “Camry has always been known for being consistent. The goal for the redesign was a more sporty and stylish feel.”
The 2018 model is 1.2 inches lower, 0.4 inches longer and 1.3 inches wider than the 2017 Camry, the release said. The 2018 model also has Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), which includes features such a precollision warning that may automatically apply brakes to prevent a front collision. The car also senses pedestrians and vehicles in its path. A lane-departure signal will alert the driver if the vehicle is starting to leave its lane.
“Toyota Safety Sense provides peace of mind,” Findlay said. “The TSS is an example of what is going to make vehicles semi- or fully-autonomous in the future. The fact that Toyota provides it provides TSS within the price of the vehicle. It’s standard equipment on every Toyota model.”
Several engines are available for the 2018 Camry: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, eight-speed automatic, a 3.5-liter eight-speed automatic V-6 or a hybrid engine.
“I’m not the least bit surprised by the success of the Camry," Kody Grady, a 17-year employee of the dealership, said. “It’s a winner every year.”
The 2018 Camry LE offers a fuel-efficient 2.5-liter engine that reaches 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. The hybrid model offers 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on highways, based on EPA estimates.
