America's favorite car is about to change model years. 2018 Camry spy shots have started to emerge already, but with some 2016 models on lots and the 2017s about to arrive, we would like to list the changes a buyer should know about. The most important thing to note if shopping for a Camry is that pretty much nothing changes of significance. If anything, the theme is a little more for one’s money in certain trims.

2017 Toyota Camry Prices
That the 2017 Camry is an outstanding value is hard to argue. Camry is the top-selling car in America and has been for 14 years. This year Toyota created a big chart showing the MSRP from 2016 vs. 2017. The prices are identical for both years, so we will spare you the analysis. However, Toyota notes that “2017 XLE and XSE grades now having as standard equipment the Entune™ Audio Plus multimedia system with Connected Navigation app & JBL® Audio.” This is an added value for shoppers. XSE and XLE four-cylinder and hybrid models also now get Qi (pronounced “chi”) wireless charging included.

2017 Camry Fuel Economy Changes
Fueleconomy.gov is our reliable source of official fuel economy ratings and for 2017 the V6 model drops 1 MPG combined to 24 MPG because the highway mileage went down 1 MPG to 30. Toyota also announced that it expects the four-cylinder cars to also drop by a bit, but did not elaborate on why. The drivetrains remain unchanged mechanically.

2017 Camry Colors and Appearance
Blue Streak Metallic color, which was available only on the 2016 Camry Special Edition until now, is now a regular production color available for the sporty-looking SE and XSE grades.

Summary
The 2017 Camry should retain its Top Safety Pick Plus rating from IIHS and will more than likely stay at the top pf the sales charts into the new year. As in years past, the Camry is a wide product line with much to offer many midsize car shoppers.
