The all-new Camry is arriving with a bunch of great features and specs that is sure to give its rivals a good run for their money. Although most of its rivals are going down the hybrid route, Toyota has decided to stick with what it knows best in its latest Camry.

The 2018 Camry, slated to debut in the third quarter of 2017, is said to be underpinning a similar modular architecture as the one found in the new Prius and the upcoming RAV 4.

This model will be coming with a 2.5-liter inline-four engine in its base model while the top model will be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 mill that is said to be capable of up to 300 horsepower. Both these engines will be mated to an eight-soeed automatic tranny.

The Camry has been growing on US consumers of recent and it’s reported that sales have been reaching about 430,000 units per year between 2011 and 2015.

The 2018 Camry is sure to elevate that figure as many fans are extremely pleased with this upcoming model, as seen on various Reddit threads.

Many folks are happy that Toyota has decided to retain the V6 engine instead of venturing down a CVT option. This is a good move as it will be able to nab some former Accord V6 owners who are looking for an upgrade.

That said, do you think not offering a CVT was a flawed move by the company? Or, do you feel that a V6 is what will appeal to buyers more?
