The wheelbase has been extended by 1.9 inches from 109.3 inches to 111.2 inches. The global version, along some changes in styling, may vary in the dimensions.
The 2018 Toyota Camry is based on the GA-K version of the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform. It will be available with an all-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. The range will include a hybrid model featuring an electrified version of the 2.5-liter engine. The gasoline models have their engines mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the hybrid model has a continuously variable transmission.
Inside too, the 2018 Toyota Camry has been completely redesigned. Changes are not limited to the aesthetics, Toyota has paid attention to even improving the comfort and incorporating latest technologies inside the car. The front seats have been completely reengineered and a plethora of new technologies have made to the Camry with the latest redesign. 10-inch colour head-up display, 7-inch MID in the instrument cluster and 8-inch Entune 3.0 infotainment system Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link with Moving Maps (2.5L gasoline, 2.5L hybrid)/Dynamic Navigation system (V6 gasoline) are a few among them.
