The Toyota Camry mid-sized sedan has always been considered to be a practical and reliable appliance vehicle that can get passengers from point A to point B without much fuss. However, Toyota apparently wants to change that stigma with the all-new 2018 model. The 2018 Toyota Camry looks very different from its predecessors in that it now sports a more aggressive design that is reminiscent of its luxury car rivals.

Everything has changed

The brand new model literally doesn't have any components from the older model. The only thing it has in common with its predecessor is its badge.

Everything is all-new, the interior, the exterior, the suspension, and the engine. According to Toyota, the Camry will be the first vehicle in its line-up to utilize its new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. The platform will be used for all future Toyota products moving forward.

Interior wise, the Toyota has really outdone themselves when it comes to the materials, fit, and finish of the Camry's cabin. The space inside the mid-sized vehicle is much more refined with a better overall layout and ergonomics. Additionally, the 2018 model will be the first in the line to have a full red interior option.

Three different vehicles

Toyota is currently offering three distinct variants, namely a V6 model, a 4-cylinder model, and a hybrid electric/gasoline model.

Interestingly, each variant will sport is own unique front grill and bumper setup, which will make it easy for consumers to distinguish them on the road.

The V6 model has around 301hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, while the 4-cylinder model will have 203hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The latter's power can be increased with the higher tier trim models, with up to 206hp and 186 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a factory-installed quad-exhaust system.

Both engines are mated to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission.

As for the hybrid model, Toyota has managed to pack the system's batteries under the rear seats, which means that it will have the same trunk space as the other two models. Toyota also explained that having the batteries in that position will aid in its handling thanks to a lower center of gravity.

Full unveiling schedule

Toyota currently has a full embargo on the press revealing any of the car's efficiency numbers, driving impressions, and pricing. The company apparently wants to announce all of the information on June 21.
