The 2018 Toyota Camry arrived in Canada in the summer of 2017 with a starting MSRP of $26,390, and it’s better in every way than ever before.
“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.”
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.
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 and Scout GPS Link. Entune App Suite Connect provides access to traffic information, weather, Slacker, Yelp, sports and stock market results, fuel prices and more, while Scout GPS Link delivers smartphone-based navigation tools. In addition to Scout GPS Link and Entune App Suite Connect, XLE and XSE grades include Entune 3.0 Plus, which adds Entune Safety Connect with automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, emergency assistance button and enhanced roadside assistance. 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.
The 2018 Toyota Camry is the Camry that Canadians have always loved – but with more evocative styling, engaging, spirited performance, additional standard convenience and safety features, and even better fuel efficiency – in short, the Camry Transformed, for the better, in every way.
