Ken Shaw Toyota presents the All New 2018 Toyota Camry:
When the good gets even better.
The 2018 Toyota Camry and Toyota Camry Hybrid have been reimagined and re-engineered from the pavement, up. Built using Toyota New Global Architecture – a state of the art approach to platform and powertrain design that helps deliver superior handling, more dynamic performance, and sharper styling. TNGA informs everything from the sweep of the hood to the placement of key components – all with the goal of enhancing the experience of owning, and driving, the new Camry.
“The eighth-generation Camry is completely transformed around the Toyota New Global Architecture – resulting in sleeker, sportier styling, a lower centre of gravity for more dynamic handling, and improved fuel efficiency,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “We’ve then added an impressive cabin, with premium materials, features, and technologies – including Entune connected technology – to create a truly outstanding sedan.”
New for 2018, the Camry is the first Toyota in Canada to feature advanced in-vehicle connectivity services. Fitted as standard to all models, Entune 3.0 Audio enhances the audio system with Entune App Suite Connect, delivering traffic information, weather, Slacker, Yelp, saved destinations, sports and stock market results, fuel prices and more. Included on XLE and XSE grades, Entune 3.0 Plus adds Entune Safety Connect with automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, emergency assistance button and enhanced roadside assistance, plus Scout GPS Link. The Camry XLE V6 features Entune 3.0 Premium Audio, which replaces Scout GPS Link with Embedded Navigation and adds Entune Destination Assist.
Also new for 2018, all grades feature a new look with distinctive upper and lower grilles, plus LED headlights as standard. Inside, the modern cabin features a sweeping interior design with improved quality of materials, exemplary ergonomics, and outstanding attention to detail. Every Camry grade is enhanced with heated front seats as standard, plus the security of the Toyota Safety Sense P bundle of technologies: Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection, Lane Departure Alert with steering assist, Automatic high beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
New powertrains are built around newly engineered 203 (206 on XSE) peak horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder or 301 peak horsepower 3.5L V6 engines. The 2018 Toyota Camry also features a new eight-speed direct shift automatic transmission, while the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is built around Toyota’s popular Hybrid Synergy Drive – the most proven hybrid powertrain on the planet.
What’s more, the all-new Toyota Camry will be available in a broad range of models and trim levels, organized into classic “L” series and sportier “S” series models, with conventional and hybrid power trains. All have been carefully crafted to offer Canadians a compelling mix of styling, features and specifications.
At a glance, it’s clear that the design goals for the all-new Camry of a distinctive, low centre of gravity resulting in a firm wide stance and sleeker profile, a practical-yet-emotionally styled cabin and a sporty yet upscale image both inside and out have been achieved and truly set a new standard in the midsize-sedan category.
Available in five grades (the L, LE, XLE, SE and XSE) and three new powertrains, there’s a Camry that’s right for anyone considering a mid-sized sedan. In addition, a next-generation hybrid system (THS II) has also been engineered for the 2018 Camry Hybrid to provide the ideal balance of energy efficiency with superior power output to maximize driving performance and enjoyment while also poised to achieve best-in-class fuel economy ratings.
Better performance? Enhanced fuel efficiency? With the all-new 2018 Camry and Camry Hybrid, it’s all possible. This is Toyota technology at its finest, producing the most exciting, fun-to-drive Camry yet. Standard on every 2018 Camry and Camry Hybrid, Toyota Safety Sense provides an array of innovative features designed to assist you with a safer, more relaxing journey.
The new Camry utilizes TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) which represents a completely new strategy to the way the company designs, engineers, and packages its vehicles to ensure they’re more dynamic, fun-to-drive and athletic than ever before.
