This year, several manufacturers will have new vehicles hitting the showrooms. Many of the new 2018 models found in the showroom have never been seen before, while some, such as the Camry and Expedition, have been around for more than a few years. Even with a new vehicle, you will need an auto service technician you can trust, since you'll still have to do maintenance according to the manufacturer's schedule.
2018 Toyota Camry
It seems like the Toyota Camry has been around forever. For 2018, Toyota has updated its most popular sedan. The new model has been updated with sculpted sheet metal, a lower roofline and a ton more cab space. The 2018 model will offer a new 2.5-liter engine and an upgraded 3.5-liter V-6 engine. Both engines will be backed by an eight-speed automated manual transmission. The interior gets three displays, a 7-inch display, an 8-inch display and a 10-inch heads-up display.
2018 Ford Expedition
The Ford Expedition is another vehicle that has been around for several years, though not as long as the Camry. This 2018 Ford Expedition got some new upgrades this year including a new lightweight aluminum body, the newest SYNC 3 infotainment system, six USB ports and a hot spot. The Expedition will also feature optional driver assistance features and advanced safety technology.
2018 GMC Terrain
The new 2018 GMC Terrain has more style than the old block design. It also has more engine choices including the 170-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter engine and the 255-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. The newest option is the 137-horsepower 1.6-liter turbo diesel that puts out 240 pound-feet of torque. For those who want the top of the line, the Denali features 19-inch wheels, a ton of chrome and LED headlights, among many other features.
2018 Kia Stinger
The 2018 Kia Stinger is a brand new model for the upcoming year. This model started as the GT concept car that was first unveiled in 2011. It's a high-performance rear-wheel drive vehicle that features a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 255 horsepower. You may also opt for the optional 3.3-liter V-6 twin turbo engine that has 365 horsepower. Both engines are backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission.
2018 Toyota CH-R
The new Toyota CH-R (Coupe High-Rider) is a crossover with a low ride. It's driven by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that has 144 horsepower. Features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Even though “coupe” is in the title, it's definitely not a coupe. Additional features include high-mounted rear door handles, two different trim levels, projector beam headlights and a 7-inch touchscreen.
2018 Volkswagen Atlas
The new Volkswagen Atlas is the best VW for the family with three rows of seating and a ton of cargo space. Cloth seats are standard, but you could opt for leather or leatherette. You'll find that this model has plenty of headroom and legroom, even in the third row. Additional features include a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat and an eight-way power adjustable passenger seat.
