Findlay Toyota Located at 7733 Eastgate Rd in the Valley Automall, celebrated the arrival of the 2018 Camry to their showroom on July 14th.  The Toyota Camry has a rich history dating back to 1979 and no other midsize sedan is as popular as the Camry in overall sales.

Over the years Camry has become synonymous with reliability and fuel efficiency. For years Camry has lead the way in a very competitive segment of the market.

“When people think Toyota, they think Camry,” said Robby Findlay, director of operations for Findlay Automotive Group. “Camry has always been known for being consistent. The goal for the redesign was a more sporty and stylish feel.”

Compared to the 2017 model, the new Camry is 1.2 inches lower, 0.4 inches longer and 1.3 inches wider.

Findlay went on to say that Toyota now includes Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) on every Camry and most Toyotas across the lineup. TSS is a package of active safety features like pre-collision system which alerts you and may automatically apply the brakes if it detects a potential frontal collision. The system will detect vehicles and pedestrians. The package also includes lane departure alert which will notify you if you’re drifting out of your lane. For safety and convenience of the driver automatic high beams and dynamic radar cruise control are also included.

“Toyota Safety Sense provides peace of mind,” Findlay said. “The TSS is an example of what is going to make vehicles semi- or fully-autonomous in the future.  The fact that Toyota provides TSS as standard equipment on every Toyota model speaks volumes.”

Available engines in the new Camry are the 2.5 liter four-cylinder eight speed automatic; the 3.5 liter eight eight-speed automatic V6; and the hybrid model.

“The Camry is no longer your grandma’s car,” Findlay added. “Toyota has revolutionized the 2018 Camry.”
“Based on looks alone, it (the 2018 Camry) means business,” said Motor Trend Magazine. “No longer content with vanilla, the new Camry jumps right into bolder flavors, promising more engaging driving dynamics, advanced features, and cutting-edge technology to go with the new exterior design that’ll surely turn heads…”

“I’m not the least bit surprised by the success of the Camry, said Kody Grady, new-car manager and a 17-year employee of the dealership. “It’s a winner every year.”

Also key to the 2018 Camry is its fuel efficiency the 2018 Camry LE with a 2.5 Liter engine and 8-speed automatic transmission will reach an impressive EPA estimated 28 city to 39 highway; while the hybrid model produces a whopping 51 mpg city, 53 mpg highway EPA estimated rating.

“The Camry has the best of everything,” Findlay said. “Anyone currently driving a Camry is encouraged to visit Findlay Toyota to test drive the 2018 model.”

Led by general manager John Barr, Findlay Toyota is part of Findlay Automotive Group founded in 1961 by the late Pete Findlay, whose son, Cliff, now oversees 31 automobile dealerships in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Oregon and Idaho. The umbrella continued to expand recently with the purchase of four dealerships in Prescott, AZ.
