Finding a vehicle that is both practical and good-looking can be difficult – unless you’re looking at the 2018 Toyota Camry. The mid-size sedan was recently honored with a spot on the prestigious Wards 10 Best Interiors list, which is put out by Wards Auto. This means it has one of the nicest, most comfortable cabins in the industry.
The Camry made a lasting impression on the judges thanks to its “artistic approach, eye for detail, high degrees of functionality, and onboard technology.” Its seats were noted for its comfort and craftsmanship, while its interior’s signature lines and bold use of color – red in particular – showed off the model’s style. As one judge said, “Finally, an interior with some color that pops.”
In addition to its compelling design, the Camry also earned notice for its sporty appearance. Its easy-to-read driver information system in particular was highlighted, particular the fact that the there were just enough “read outs and information not to put the driver into sensory overload.”
Overall, the editors found the 2018 Toyota Camry to be an overall good value in the mid-size sedan segment. Toyota received the commemorative award earlier this month at the Wards Auto Interiors Conference at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
While awards might be nice indicators of quality, we think the best way for you to determine that the 2019 Toyota Camry is the best choice for you is to test drive one. Stop into Capital Toyota and feel the difference that quality makes.
The Toyota Camry has continued to see high sales despite growing American interest in crossovers, trucks, and SUVs. That’s resulted in the automaker going ahead with a major investment to make the popular midsize sedan even better in the near future. The Toyota Kentucky Plant is the subject of a massive $1.33 billion investment that will support the American-made car.
The Toyota Kentucky Plant, better known as Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., produces engines and assembles Toyota vehicles. It will kick off with updates that aim to both modernize and streamline the production facility.
The $1.33 billion investment is the largest of any automaker in the state of Kentucky. The production facility will continue to produce the Toyota Camry and marks the Japanese brand’s foray into solidifying its relationship with American drivers.
Toyota has invested a whopping $60 billion in the United States in the past 60 years. The most recent investment makes up a major portion of the automaker’s plan to invest another $10 billion by 2022.
Once the plant is up and running with shiny new equipment, the Toyota Camry, Avalon, and Lexus ES will roll on the lines. The plant will also continue to employ at 8,200 workers.
We at Capital Toyota are happy to see an incredible automaker making such a major investment in the United States and future vehicles!
January saw the unveiling of a number of new, different nameplates via the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Among them was the new Toyota Camry debut, the first appearance of the 2018 model year across the entire world. Though Toyota brought over 45 vehicles to the 2017 Detroit auto show, the popularity and reputation of the Camry nameplate made it one of the most anticipated reveals at the event.
The 2018 Camry is all-new from the ground up, with Toyota’s New Global Architecture that the brand has been expanding across its entire lineup. Toyota’s designers also recognized the American market’s shift away from mid-size sedans and toward crossovers, so the new Camry incorporates design cues from the upcoming C-HR crossover. The interior has also been designed for a more sweeping, sculptural look.
The goal in designing the next generation of the Toyota Camry was to deliver a model that was more sporty, dynamic, and overall fun in terms of performance and capability. When Toyota reps unveiled the Toyota Camry debut in Detroit, they announced that “drivers will notice dramatic improvements” within seconds of getting behind the wheel. Judging from reviews of the new Prius, which has also implemented the new architecture, that assessment is spot on.
The battle to be America’s best-selling car is constant and heated, perhaps more so now than ever before, since the sedan market has experienced such an incredible explosion over the last couple years. That added level of competition makes the Camry’s continued reign atop the sales charts even more impressive. Even more impressive, the Camry sells just behind the three pickup trucks atop the American sales market..
Of course, when you check out the Camry, you’ll easily see why it’s such a popular fan favorite. It has a starting price of just under $23,000, gets up to 35 mpg on the highway, and comes with all kinds of options too—from the Entune infotainment system to several different powertrains. In fact, you can get the Toyota Camry with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a 3.5-liter V6, or even a hybrid powertrain setup.
