It's an exciting time at Westminster Toyota. The brand new 2018s are rolling onto our Greater Vancouver lot as we run through the 2017 clear out event. It began with the concept car that became a reality, the C-HR, and was followed by the 2018 Yaris, the new Prius c, and now here we are looking at the future of the iconic Toyota Camry. This is where things get really interesting.
Redesigned, updated, and upgraded, the new Camry has had everyone talking since it was unveiled at the NYIAS and NAIAS auto shows earlier in the year. Wondering what all of the fuss is about? Allow us the honor to be the first to preview the 2018 Camry, for you.
One glance at the XSE and SE models and you'll see that Toyota pushed the limits of what one can expect from the body of the Camry from here on in. The muscular vehicles boast a notably wider stance, with designers quoting "catamaran-inspired" accents to complete the black sport mesh grille. Whatever it is, it will turn heads on the asphalt.
The bird's eye view is impressive too, thanks to the XSE's available panoramic glass roof with a front power tilt/slide moonroof. There is so much natural light coming in that you'll think Camry released a convertible, but don't worry, your hairstyle will stay intact. When you factor in the 19-inch machine-finished alloy wheels and new smoke-tint LED headlights, you know you're witnessing the unveiling of something very special.
The XSE brings even more excitement, by inviting dramatic updates to the interior, complete with available Cockpit Red leather trim and textured metal moldings that clearly borrow a healthy dose of attitude from their NASCAR racing team. Available ambient interior lighting and contrast stitching help keep things classy, while the new driver-centric positioning with available 10-inch color Head-Up Display on the windshield and steering wheel controls create a cocoon born for driving. And what do those interior controls do? Keep reading.
One of the most anticipated parts about any 2018 update is the technology. The new Camry does not disappoint. The available 7-inch color Multi-Information Display will help you effortless navigate any urban, suburban, and highway route on the map, ensuring fuel economy remains in check in the process.
Should you opt for the available 8-inch multimedia touchscreen, you'll be treated to smartphone-esque pinch-and-zoom navigation controls, complete with a customizable home screen where which you can manipulate your Bluetooth connected playlist as it delivers crisp and clear audio via available 9 JBL speakers.
The vehicle also includes the conveniences you've come to expect from the forward-thinking brand, including a Smart Key System with Push Button Start, but also has a few surprises, including available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging and available Bird's Eye View Camera (yes, bird's eye view).
You may use your car for school pickups and/or jaunts to sales meetings, but you will get a taste of what it feels like to hit the racetrack when behind the wheel of the 2018 Camry, especially when you opt for the 3.5-liter V6 with a new direct shift 8-speed automatic transmission and enhanced double wishbone rear suspension. The performance is simply unmatched in its class, as the vehicle's new lower and wider stance along with a D-4S direct-injection system optimizes the driving experience.
Of course, you don't need high-octane performance at all times, which is why the Camry has been updated to give you the choice of how you want to drive at any given moment. The car comes with three driving modes, including Sport Mode, ECO Mode, and Normal Mode, leaving you in complete control of your destiny.
The good news continues as you learn that the above noted performance will not come at the expense of fuel economy. The Camry remains to be one of the most economical vehicles on the market in 2018, and if you consider the Camry Hybrid, you can take that statement to the bank thanks to a four-mode system (Sport, ECO, EV, Normal) that offers an EPA-estimated 51 (city) / 53 (highway) mpg.
We know you thought it wasn't possible. How could one of the world's most dependable vehicles become even more so? This has been accomplished by combining the standard Toyota Safety Sense P, Star Safety System, and ten airbags with the available Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Safety Connect. When you decide to leave our lot with the new 2018 Camry you have taken possession of one of the safest and most reliable vehicles on the planet.
