2018 Toyota Camry: A Sportier and More Dynamic Performing Hybrid Car

October 13, 2017

According to Car And Driver, the 2018 Toyota Camry is the reigning America’s favorite sedan today. The car was revealed at the 2017 Detroit auto show and bound for dealerships this summer. The team faced the freedom afforded by the fresh Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform which signs that Americans are continuing to abandon mid-size sedans and the fact that the current, inoffensively-yours Camry has really been selling well despite industry trends.


TNGA is Toyota’s new way of designing all its vehicles, which helps them to build cars that are more exciting to drive. The upcoming Toyota Camry is built with the new GA-K platform, and as a result, the car is lower, broader, and more structurally rigid than ever. The GA-K Camry has, as Toyota describes it, a “more exciting and emotional character.” Toyota doesn’t want to just settle for subtle nips and tucks. According to CEO Akio Toyoda, cars from the company will be more adventurous and has exciting designs. “It’s no secret that I like to involve myself in the design process,” said Toyoda, who made the official presentation of the new 2018 Toyota Camry himself. “My team might call it something else.”


The 2018 Toyota Camry hybrid will pack a fully re-engineered version of company’s latest hybrid system, the THS II, which takes advantage of the performance gains in the latest Prius. Toyota has spilled a large amount of effort into the powertrain, striving to strengthen sales of the upgraded Camry hybrid even as gas prices have remained low and sales of the variant have dropped to about five percent of the total Camry sales.


The interior design of the upgraded version of Camry will be more visually attractive but retains a practical and intuitive layout of the car. The front seats were redesigned for the users to be more comfortable to seat even for a long travel. The refinement is up with the use of higher grade soft-touch elements on major surfaces of the dash part, center console as well as door trim.


Backing the Toyota Camry’s sportier looks is a new platform that makes the use of a more ultra-high-strength steel and new molding techniques. In this case, the looks will help to increase the structural rigidity. Combined with a re-engineered rear double wishbone suspension, a 2-inch longer wheelbase and a lower center of gravity, Toyota promises considerably improved driving dynamics performance.


There are lots of new car coming next year. Almost all American vehicle company are planning to release a sedan or an SUV before 2018 ends. To know more about cars, its parts, and accessories, you may click here.
