7 head turners at the Detroit Auto Show

  • Toyota Camry


    The best-selling sedan in America is getting a new, sleeker look. The redesign of the 2018 Camry comes as Toyota hopes to lure additional buyers to its flagship sedan instead of the pickups and SUVs that have led sales since gas prices tumbled in recent years.

    The new Camry is two inches longer, and the roof is one inch lower than its predecessor. It will have engine options of a 3.5-liter six-cylinder, a four-cylinder and a gas-electric hybrid. Standard safety equipment will include so-called pedestrian detection -- which hits the brakes at low speeds if it senses someone crossing in front of the car -- and lane departure warning.
