Like the Prius and C-HR, the 2018 Toyota Camry sits on Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform which is said to provide a “fun driving experience”. Accordingly, the car will get a 30% stiffer structure and 48 mm longer wheelbase. These facilitate the suspension operation and make space for the cabin.

Here’s what most Camry buyers need to know about the engines: the entry-level model will be gifted with an all-new 2.5-liter ‘Dynamic Force’ four-cylinder engine, knocking out 206 hp and 252 Nm of torque. The same engine is present in hybrid version with a smaller output of 176 hp and 221 Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, rang-topping grade will come with 3.5-liter V6 unit delivering 362 hp and 362 Nm. These two engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission; however, the hybrid version still remains a CVT.
