2018 Toyota Camry Review

The 2018 Toyota Camry has been subject to radical changes since the release of the 2017 model. As one of America's most popular cars of all time, the Camry already has a great track record and has long been praised for its exceptional reliability. This new iteration of the beloved car will surely increase its fanbase even further with upgrading styling and technology.

This review of the 2018 Camry from your friends at Pecheles Toyota will provide you with a look at its upgraded features, helping you decide whether the Camry can be the right option for your commute through Washington, Greenville, and New Bern.

Stylish Inside and Out

This year's Camry has received an all-new low center of gravity, which allows for more predatory, low-to-the-ground styling usually reserved for luxury sports cars. The SE and XSE sport trims now have a distinctly different look than the LE and XLE, offering stylish black wheels, a mesh grille, a distinctive, sporty rear bumper, and large side intakes.

Inside, you'll find a driver's cockpit in which all controls point slightly toward the driver for ease of use. The dashboard's swooping design creates a feeling of openness and luxury in the front seat, while both the front and back seats have received a redesign to make them more comfortable.

Toyota Technology

Toyota's suite of active safety technology features now come standard on all trims of the 2018 Camry. That means you'll be protected with high-tech features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning with Steering Assist, Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection, and automatic high beams.

Toyota's Entune™ 3.0 infotainment system is also standard on all trims, and includes a helpful rearview camera and navigation system. Standard App Suite Connect allows you to access a wide variety of your favorite smartphone apps right on your car's screen.

Options for 2018 Camry

The 2018 Toyota Camry offers three all-new powertrains. A 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a 3.5L six-cylinder engine are available, both of which are paired with a new eight-speed transmission for smoother gear shifts. A new hybrid system is also available, which pairs the 2.5L four-cylinder engine with an updated version of Toyota's hybrid system. These new powertrains will increase fuel efficiency and engine power.

There are four trim levels to choose from: the LE, XLE, SE, and XSE. The S trim levels now have the option to drive in sport mode, allowing you to experience the thrill of driving with a manual transmission. Paddle gear shifters are mounted on the steering wheel for convenient shifting.
