2018 Toyota Camry: Monthly Update for March 2018

2018 Toyota Camry

Where Did We Drive It?
Our 2018 Toyota Camry drove through March anonymously. It came and went without much notice, which, to be honest, is probably what most Camrys do. Thankfully we have nothing much to report. Unless, of course, you have to write an update like I do. That said, we did have a tropical encounter with one of our Camry's cousins and we found a nice little detail about the trunk. Hey, no one said Camrys need to be exciting.

2018 Toyota Camry: Monthly Update for February 2018

Where Did We Drive It?
We drove our 2018 Toyota Camry just 902 miles in February. Is this new, sportier Camry not resonating with us? Are we not feeling it? Is it the front end? Are the other shiny objects in our garage (Model 3, Colorado ZR2) distracting us?

Maybe some, none, or all of the above. But even after a month of short commuting miles, broken up by a drive to Las Vegas, we're still right on target with our mileage after five months. Granted, we had some big-mile months early on in the test and around the holidays. And with spring around the corner, the Camry is certain to be a popular car for long drives and weekends out of town. Maybe we'll even autocross it. I mean, I won't. But someone will, I'm sure.

2017 Toyota Camry

Where Did We Drive It?
We continued to pack miles onto our 2018 Toyota Camry in November, but it didn't come close to matching the roughly 3,000 miles we reported in October. Last month, the Camry mostly stuck to commuting and weekend tours of Los Angeles County, and we added just more than 900 miles, well below our 1,700-mile monthly goal.

2018 Toyota Camry

Where Did We Drive It?
Our new 2018 Toyota Camry has only been in the fleet for a month and a half, but we've wasted no time breezing past the engine break-in period of 621 miles. In fact, we've put nearly 3,000 miles on Blue Lightning since we purchased it in mid-September. In that time, the Camry has seen its share of city commuting, highway driving and instrumented performance testing. A few local trips bookended the month — Josh Sadlier took it to Palm Springs in early October, and I drove to Temecula at the end.

2018 Toyota Camry: Introduction

2018 Toyota Camry

What Did We Buy?
"Didn't we just have a Camry in the fleet?"

This seemed a reasonable question after hearing that we'd added a 2018 Toyota Camry to our long-term stable. It wasn't that long ago that we'd driven a black SE trim for a year, but it turns out it wasn't quite as recent as it seemed. That particular test wrapped up, and the car sold, almost five years ago.

Time flies; you just don't expect it to fly by on the wings of a Camry, a car so ubiquitous on America's roads that it's always just there. It seems all of that capable anonymity has caught up with the country's best-selling car, however. Six years later, the new Camry rolls out with a bold new look, revamped four- and six-cylinder engines under the hood, and a chassis that promises both improved interior room and a more engaged driving feel.

Such comprehensive changes made it hard to ignore the new Camry, so we decided to buy one for our long-term fleet. Now we have a year and 20,000 miles to see if the redesign really does push this family sedan forward in a meaningful way.
