2018 Toyota Camry SE & LE Sneak Preview | Oxmoor Toyota in Louisville, KY


Hey guys, Chuck Shueman here with Oxmoor Toyota. Really excited today, we’ve got two 2018 Camerys
here that we’re able to preview. These are going to be out for sale later this
summer, but we wanted to go over some of the changes that they made in the 2018. The big that you’ll notice is the body style
change. Now, they gave this a really athletic look,
they lowered the hood line, they lowered the roof line, just dynamic lines all across. Beautiful car, very stable. They changed the grills on these and one of
the cool things about these grills is that if you watch NASCAR, you’re going to notice
this grill very closely resembles the actual stock cars that they use. And I’ve never seen a company take their stock
cars and match the grill so closely, and that was intentional. This is the LE here in the blue, you might
notice the bar grill here and this is the SE over here in the black, it’s got the honeycomb
or web look. Just kind of a sportier look, this is the
sport version and consider the LE the luxury version. And so, one of the cool things about the 2018
is that they’ve taken the Toyota Safety Sense P, so our pre-collision program, so there’s
a multi-millimeter radar, and in-dash camera, and that is going to be standard on all the
Camerys, so that gives you pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, pre-collision,
lane departure, sway alert, auto highbeams, all kinds of cool safety features are going
to be standard on these, very safe cars, still has 10 air bags standard, all the safety features
you’ve come to expect from Toyota and a Camery. But the other thing that we’re really excited
about is this car’s built on the new TNGA platform, and so what this is going to give
you, this is their new dynamic force engine here. So this is a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine that gives
you better fuel efficiency and more power than the previous generations. Very excited about this engine. This also has a new 8 speed direct shift transmission,
so you’re not going to feel any lack of power when you’re accelerating around the highway. This thing is fun to drive. The other thing is that they’ve added comfort
in the back, now they’ve got a double wishbone suspension in the rear, so it’s actually a
more comfortable ride, more enjoyable ride. This thing is fun to drive, and so we’re really
excited about that and we’re really excited about some of the other features that are
available on the interior as well. So, we’ve got an SE and an LE, and this LE,
it’s got different connect services, so there’s a, different connect services that I want
to tell you about They’ve got remote connect, so the remote connect, and while we’re talking
about this, we’re gonna do something, so I’ve just locked the car and I’ve got an assistant
over here, he’s got his cell phone it’s actually connected to this car, and so what you can
do is from your phone, there’s an app you can download, you can start the car, you can
lock and unlock it, and all that’s remote, so that is called remote connect.This also
has safety connect that’s available. So, with the safety connect, what it does,
it gives you an emergency constant if you we’re to get into a wreck, that’s a subscription
service that’s available. This also has service connect, so this will
give you a alert at 5,000 miles that you’re due for service,And you’ll actually get that
message on your car, and it alerts you that you’re ready for service. And there we go, so we’ve got the remote connect
start of the car, from his cell phone in his pocket.And then the fourth connect that I
want to talk about that’s available on these is the wifi connect, and so it actually has
wifi that you can have in your car so that you can pair your phone to it, and be connected
to wifi and not have to use your cellular data. And so, with Toyota’s remote connect, when
you open the car it turns the engine off, but I wanted to show you the interior here. How cool they did with the redesign, the sweeping
dash that you see here, and this is the LE, the base model, it’s got wood grain there
on the dash, a big 7 inch touch screen right there for the radio system, and then just
these sculpted seats, the dash – which is just gorgeous, they did a fantastic job with
this design, and then you also got a ton of space in the back here too.Restart it to get
that AC going, but if you look back here, really spacious back seat. Very comfortable, and if you look up here,
all the head room that’s available for your passengers when you get back there. Still one of the largest back seats in it’s
class, and then, we talked about the safety connection, that button is up here, the wifi
is connected already, and then, this also has In-Tune 3.0, which we’re really excited
about. With In-Tune 3.0, which is our radio system,
you get scout GPS, which is available on all trims.So scout GPS here, you have to have
a phone paired with it, but it is an app that you download on your phone and it’s free,
and what it does is it gives you navigation, so the navigation follows you, you can set
an address, and do turn by turn navigation with a map that follows you. This also has our app suite, so all the apps
that are available, slacker radio, pandora, iheartradio, they’ve added NPR 1, Yelp, still
has fuel, all kinds of cool stuff like that, so very easy to use. You can use voice command with a lot of that,
you also have a 4.2 engine, multi-information display in the center which gives you information
about your vehicle, digital speedometer, that kind of thing, so just very intuitive, very
user friendly, this one even has a sun roof, homelink, you can program garage doors, I
could go on and on about all the features. This thing has a G wireless charger in here,
and again, this is the base model, this is the LE, there’s just so many cool features
available, auto dimming rear view mirror, this has blind spot monitoring, so it lights
up when someone is in your blind spot. It also gives you rear cross traffic alerts,
so if your backing out of a space, like at Kroger, gas station, something like that,
if a car’s coming, it will actually beep and alert you in the center which side that cars
coming from. I’ve even had it pick up a bicycle in my wife’s
car. So it’s very cool very, very safe, very convenient,
we’re just thrilled that we got to preview these, we can’t wait to get them in later
in the summer and sell them. So hopefully you’ll come out when they’re
available, test drive, get one of these, you know, as soon as you can. Appreciate it, thanks guys!
