2018 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Ford Fusion
The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling midsize sedan in the United States for more than 15 consecutive years. For the new model year, the automaker has completely redesigned the sedan adding more interior space and better performance without sacrificing its sharp handling or world-class fuel economy. With the new model year and a newly redesigned vehicle in place the Camry has a new round of competitors to remain better than. This is pretty clearly illustrated in a comparison between the 2018 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Ford Fusion. The new 2018 Camry is available for a test drive at Spitzer Toyota today.
Previous generations of the two midsize sedans have been roundly praised by independent reviews for being as roomy and comfortable to drive as they are high-performing and efficient. For the 2018 model year, the Toyota Camry further separates itself from the Fusion as well as the rest of the class. A major part of the redesign for the 2018 Camry is the extra space that has been added. Toyota engineers added a few fractions of an inch to length and width of the wheelbase of the Camry. The team was able to make the interior more passenger-friendly while making sure the 2018 model is lighter than the 2017 version.

2018 Camry vs. 2018 Fusion: Performance Specs
Among the reasons the Toyota Camry has won over so many hearts and minds is its commitment to offering a strong balance between performance and efficiency. The Camry has always offered four-cylinder and V-6 engine options. That trend continues with the 2018 model, but both power plants have been vastly improved. Both the 2018 Toyota Camry and 2018 Ford Fusion use a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine on each of their base models. The all-new Camry makes more than 200 horsepower with its base engine, compared to the 175 horsepower from the Ford's four-cylinder engine. The potential buyers of the 2018 Camry can choose a 300-horsepower V-6.
Additionally, each of the engine options available for the 2018 Toyota Camry are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission to help with fuel economy scores.
