The Toyota Camry has been one of the best selling cars for the past 15 years (becoming a staple of Toyota by sell over 18 million units to date) and with good reason: quality, comfort, and price.

The Engine

The 2018 Toyota Camry will come with three different powertrain options that you can choose from such as: a new-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS II), a 3.5-liter V6 which has a D-4S Fuel Injection, and an all-new 2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine which so happens to be paired with an 8AT (which is an 8-speed on Direct-Shift transmission which is automatic). Due to the advancement in technology, it is also able to offer a better steering experience. You will be able to test drive one at your Kansas City Toyota dealership.

Different Options The 2018 Toyota Camry Offers

Not only can you test the steering while you are at your Kansas City Toyota dealership but you can also be on the lookout for the different grades of the model. The LE (the standard) and the XLE (the premium) are two of the grades of the 2018 Toyota Camry. Another two grades that will be available are the SE and the XSE. They can be differentiated from the other grades by their sportier look with rocker panels (which are at the bottom of car doors between the wheels), and the XSE has 19 inch alloy wheels with a black finish. These will all be available at your Adams Kansas City dealership.

Size Difference From Previous Models

When, the 2018 Toyota Camry arrives at your Kansas City Toyota dealership, it will look lower to the ground. This is because the designers have lowered the hip points with approximately 1 inch in the front and approximately 1.2 inches in the rear. This will therefore make the model lower to the ground by an inch and have a lower roof line. This was done to create a lower center of gravity but the interior design still allows for more maximum space for the passengers.

Interior Design

Although the model’s exterior looks like it has been reduced in size, the interior has more space than ever before. When you sit inside the 2018 Toyota Camry while at your Kansas Toyota dealership, notice how much room you have. In the passenger side, you can feel a sense of spaciousness because the dashboard is designed more ergonomically. On the driver’s side, you can see the gauges clearly, and the dashboard is lower so you have as much visibility as possible. The same is applied to the cowl and hood of the vehicle. The materials that make up the interior are of multiple hues and tones throughout and manufactured of the highest quality grade to give it a pleasant feel. Toyota has included a HMI (Human Machine Interface) touch screen between the driver and passenger which is not distracting. The side mirrors also give the idea of space around the car.
