US market announced to receive the new Camry in September.
Twitter user shou_zama has published images of a trailer in Japan transporting the 2018 Toyota Camry ahead of the car's expected sales commencement in the second half of the year. These units were likely manufactured at the company's Tsutsumi plant where the Toyota Prius is also made and could be prototypes.
The 2018 Toyota Camry is based on the TNGA platform that debuted with the Toyota Prius in 2015. For the USA, its biggest market, the new Camry will be produced at the Kentucky plant in the USA, and reach dealerships in late Summer (September).
The new generation Camry has incorporated the Japanese automaker's "Keen Look" design for an evolutionary look. It is 0.4 inches (10.16 mm) longer, 0.7 inches (17.78 mm) wider and 1.2 inches (30.48 mm) lower, and has a 1.9 inch (30.48 mm) longer wheelbase.
Toyota will offer the 2018 Toyota Camry in the U.S. market with an all-new 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine. Power is sent to the wheels via a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The range includes a hybrid variant too, with a powertrain consisting of a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. The electrified variant gets a continuously variable transmission.
