The new generation of the famous Toyota sedan will come with some interesting and new features. The 2018 Toyota Camry will be essentially much better model than the current one. Though its release was expected to happen sooner, the release of the all-new and improved sedan had to be delayed. This is due to the delay in development of the new TNGA platform which will underpin the new model. The reasons why the making of the platform took longer than anticipated is unknown, however, this doesn’t make much of a difference. The new TNGA platform will either way be used for the new Camry and it will come with amazing features. In addition, the new generation of the mid-size sedan might also come with a slightly larger body, though this hasn’t been confirmed. Such change would be great as the new model would be more cozy and comfortable, but since the current generation is quite spacious as it is, if the dimension increase doesn’t happen, it won’t be such a shame. The new 2018 Toyota Camry will come with an improved powertrain as well, thus rounding up its redesign. The new model should be available in two to three years, and its release will surely be one of the most important events in the year of 2017, when the release is expected.
The 2018 Toyota Camry Exterior & Interior Changes
The Toyota Camry, as it is at the moment, is one of the most popular models on the American market, so basically, anything the manufacturer does to the new generation will only make it even more awesome. The current model comes with an interesting style: it is neither too bold not dull or uninteresting. Therefore, the 2018 Toyota Camry will probably keep its current design as a base for its future appearance. Changes should be subtle, the new 2018 sedan will probably resemble its 2015 counterpart, but it will present its style and elegance in a modern and innovative way. In addition, the new 2018 Toyota Camry will, like we said, come with the new TNGA platform. This platform will be made out of lightweight materials, so it will reduce the sedan’s weight quite much, thus improving its performance and fuel efficiency. Reportedly, the new model will come with much better fuel economy than the current sedan, which is excellent news. Also, the new model might come a bit larger and with slightly longer wheelbase. Though this hasn’t been confirmed yet, such change is quite possible. This would provide the model with more space and offer more comfort, while the longer wheelbase would improve the Camry’s stability, precision and overall performance.
The Expected Powertrain Changes & Possible New Engine
As for the powertrain, the 2018 Toyota Camry is said to come with some unexpected engine changes. The exact engine lineup hasn’t been confirmed yet, since it is too early for that, but we will tell you what the speculations and semi-reliable sources say. Firstly, the sedan’s base engine will be kept. It is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit that currently produces 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. The current power output will probably be improved for the 2018 model, mostly due to the weight reduction. Secondly, the new 3.5-liter V6 engine, that currently generates 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque) will be replaced with a new mill. The new mill will be a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that will generate slightly less power – 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque – but it would come with significantly better fuel economy. The 2018 Toyota Camry is expected to have its fuel consumption reduces by 30 percent, which is a fantastic improvement. This is mostly due to the new platform, and the new unit. Although some skeptics will be disappointed and worried that the new Camry will be less interesting and powerful than before since it would come without the V6 engine, we know better. The new model will actually come with an improved performance due to the new platform and the fact that it now weighs less, so it can perform like before, if not better, without as powerful unit as the V6 engine was.
The Expected Release Date
The 2018 Toyota Camry will be released sometime during 2017. The new generation of the most popular sedan seems to have a plan to become even more popular than it is at the moment, if that is even possible. All in all, we believe that, of all the sedans on the market, the 2018 Camry is by far the best model to be waiting for.
