2018 Toyota Camry: Monthly Update for April 2018

by Dan Edmunds, Director of Vehicle Testing

2018 Toyota Camry

Where Did We Drive It?
We added 1,159 miles to our 2018 Toyota Camry in April and pushed it beyond the 10,000-mile threshold. That said, we'll have to pick up the pace and take full advantage of the upcoming summer road-trip season if we hope to total 20,000 miles by its year anniversary at the end of September.

By all rights the Camry should have accumulated more miles this month, but out of necessity it spent much of its time in the suburbs running here and there. It never got much of a chance to stretch its legs on any sort of road trip.

2018 Toyota Camry: Monthly Update for December 2017

2018 Toyota Camry

Where Did We Drive It?
We added around 1,600 miles to our 2018 Toyota Camry in December thanks to two long trips, one to Arizona and another to San Diego. We missed our goal of 1,700 miles for the month, but we're confident we'll be on schedule to hit our 20,000-mile goal by October when our long-term trial concludes.

Why are we so confident? Because people around here really seem to dig the Camry, so it's a safe bet that Blue will get its fair share of miles. As expected, the Camry performed as intended. We experienced no major foul-ups, problems or gremlins as 2017 came to an end. We did notice a few weaknesses in the Camry armor, however.

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: Monthly Update for October 2017

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.
