2018 Toyota Camry Upgrades

The Toyota Camry has long stood as the industry’s best-selling mid-size sedan. With more than a decade at the top spot under its belt, the popular model is due for a redesign, and that’s exactly what it’s getting. The 2017 model looked good, but the 2018 Toyota Camry exceeds expectations. Now entering the 8th generation, the successful model receives a variety of updates.

The 2018 Camry rolls out on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform and the result is glorious. The new model brings an adventurous style with an eye-catching design that’s sure to inspire drivers of all ages.

As far as measurements, the 2018 Toyota Camry is less than an inch wider and longer than the outgoing model. While crossovers are selling like hotcakes due to a higher ride height, the new Camry heads in the other direction, as the hood drops by more than one and a half inches, although a redesigned interior offers a more open cabin with a sporty feel.

The new Camry features three powertrain options: a 3.5-liter V6, a 2.5-liter four cylinder, and a hybrid version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder. As for technology, drivers can expect a new and improved infotainment system which offers a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with connectivity for up to five devices.

We here at Krause Toyota can’t wait for the arrival of the 2018 Toyota Camry!

Another employee, Vicki Phillip, who is an office associate, knew she would love this place during her interview to be hired. She remembered the occasion saying, “The women in accounting were the first people I saw. I knew right away that I would fit in with them. They were absolutely warm and welcoming. Everybody here is compassionate. They truly care about you and appreciate you and what you do for them. It’s very nice to feel appreciated. People aren’t down in the dumps here.

Overall Caring Environment

In an industry that is putting more pressure to sell more and more, Krause Toyota makes it a point for their employees to have a balanced life. Most places in the area require employees to work on Christmas Eve at some capacity. Krause Toyota is closed for the holidays so they can spend time with their family.

It seems like one of the few places where all 39 employees work together to give the best experience not only for the customers but themselves as well. If you look around the dealership you will see so many smiling faces, and you can tell the people are happy to be there. It is because of this, that they have earned the Leadership Award, as well as the Small Business Award.

 

We recommend you experience this for yourself. Stop by Krause Toyota in Breinigsville, PA and see all the smiling faces. You will be glad you did.
