2018 Toyota Camry Packs An Open-source Linux-based Infotainment System

2018 Toyota Camry packs an open-source Linux-based infotainment system

Automotive Grade Linux, or AGL, is a division within The Linux Foundation set on developing open-source software for cars that will help support the future of connected cars. The group is made up of more than 100 automakers, suppliers, and tech corporations. We sampled some of the iterations at this year's CES in Las Vegas. Toyota, one of the first two OEMs to join, announced today that a new AGL-backed infotainment system will go on sale later this summer in the 2018 Toyota Camry.

The new system will mark a huge step forward for Toyota and presumably Lexus, which has fallen far behind in the infotainment department. The Camry will be the first vehicle with the new AGL infotainment, but the system's flexibility will help provide an easy transition to other models, including those from Lexus. The big takeaway is improved connectivity and new functionality, though exact details haven't been revealed.

Japanese 2018 Toyota Camry Debuts TRD And Modellista Trims

While the U.S. had its first glimpse at the 2018 Toyota Camry at January’s Detroit Auto Show, the automaker has only just previewed the vehicle in Japanese guise and with it, offered us an unimpeded view of the TRD and Modellista packages available.

At this stage, it is thought that the TRD and Modellista visual options will only be available in Japan, although worldwide markets are expected to receive a full-blown TRD variant in the not too distant future.

2018 Toyota Camry unveiled with TRD and Modellista variants

We’d already seen the 2018 Toyota Camry – but that vehicle was the one developed for the North American market. Here you see the 2018 Toyota Camry in Japanese domestic market spec: in other words, the version that’ll be sold here from late this year.

There are minor visual changes between the model seen here and the North American version, including different front bumpers and headlight inlays (with clear indicator lenses rather than the amber tinted ones on the US models), and tail-lights with marginally different lenses.

From the side, the concept looks to feature smoothed out versions of the eighth-generation Camry’s doors. At the front and rear, the concept has unique styling, with cleaner and sharper details than the already unveiled North American Camry.

Those making their way to the Shanghai Auto Show this year might get hit with a strong case of déjà vu once they lay eyes on Toyota's Fun sedan concept.

Judging by its dimensions, shoulder line and A & C-pillar design, this concept seems to be previewing a car that we already know pretty well, namely the 2018 Toyota Camry, which already made its debut back in January at the Detroit Auto Show.

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota Nascar Camry

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota NASCAR CamryToyota is really excited about its participation in NASCAR, despite a connection to its consumer cars thinner than the decals that identify it as a Camry. Disbelief in the branding fiction aside, the restyled stock car will race this year and try to protect its 2016 manufacturer's championship.

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota Camry

2017 Detroit Auto Show: 2018 Toyota CamryEven as SUVs and crossovers are taking a bite out of sedan sales, the Toyota Camry still managed to be the best-selling vehicle in 2016 without a truck bed. Impressive, given that it was in the seventh and final year of its current design. And doubly so considering that it was design that was never exactly at the forefront of style, innovation or, critically, the midsize sedan pack.

2018 Toyota Camry Imagined

2018 Toyota Camry ImaginedNothing says A-to-B transport more than Toyota’s Camry; dependable, comfortable and utterly anonymous. Is it bad? Well no, as the 429,000 Camrys Toyota sold in the US last year show making it the best selling car in the country. But it does sit at the bottom of the pack in terms of allure compared to rivals such as Ford’s Fusion and Mazda’s 6.

2018 Toyota Camry gets sporty cues, sleeker stylingThe current Toyota Camry isn't a pretty car, but the 2018 model, at least from what we can glean from the most recent set of spy shots, shows a lot of promise. The next-gen Camry was caught testing with a Highlander and Lexus RX and appears to be a high-performance variant of the sedan. We know it sounds crazy, but this could be a good-looking Camry.
