While there are numerous small changes between the two Camry models, we think there are four main differences to be aware of when making your purchasing decision. First, the 2018 Toyota Camry has a completely redesigned look. Even from a far distance, it is clear the 2018 Toyota Camry appears more bold and athletic thanks to a longer, lower, and wider stance. This structural change has also gifted passengers with increased rear legroom.
The second significant change to the 2018 model is an upgraded suspension. While the 2017 model used rear struts the 2018 model uses a double-wishbone suspension. The double-wishbone suspension was recently used on the Toyota Prius and received high praise, and Toyota is hoping the 2018 Camry will receive similar ride comfort and handling improvements.
The third change to the 2018 Camry lies in the engine options. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine has been revamped and will now produce significantly more horsepower. An optional 3.6-liter V6 engine will also be available. Both engines will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that has never before been offered with the Camry.
The last significant change is that, like other 2018 Toyota vehicles, the 2018 Camry will come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense® P System on all trims. This bundle includes advanced safety features that were previously only found in higher trim levels and optional packages on previous Camry models.
With just a minor price increase, the 2018 Toyota Camry is definitely worth the money. Anyone interested in learning more about the new model is encouraged to fill out the form on this page and explore other Camry research and blog pages on the Ackerman Toyota website.
