It's no surprise that the Toyota Camry has been the number one selling car in America for that last 17 years. With the all newly redesigned 2018 model it is turning more heads than ever. Toyota & I partnered together during the Monster Energy Nascar All-Star Race weekend to showcase the XSE edition which is the official pace care for the Nascar races.

The Camry XSE V6 is the range-topping trim, slotted above the XLE and Hybrid models. It has the sportiest styling and backs that up with solid performance. The Camry XSE is also well equipped and comes standard with a host of safety and convenience technologies. It has a high predicted reliability rating, as well as plenty of advanced driver assistance features that can help you avoid a collision. These include standard lane departure warning and pedestrian detection.

New exterior design

Camry XSE’s powerful shape and captivating style will announce your arrival—with authority. The muscular shape is defined by a pleasing mix of sweeping curves and chiseled surfaces. Sport side rocker panels and the integrated rear spoiler emphasize the coiled stance and redirect airflow to enhance efficiency and performance. It’s an irresistible symphony of flowing lines and sharp, unconstrained edges that always makes an impact. Let the aggressive lines of the available gloss-black grille draw you in. The available sport mesh insert projects a finely machined appearance. It’s just one of many exquisite details found on Camry. The available dual exhaust with quad chrome tips dishes out a powerful look, matched only by the sporty sound. It’s sure to leave a lasting impression. Add to the allure with the lustrous black hue found on Camry's available 19-in. alloy wheels. The deep color dramatically contrasts the exquisite machined finish of the V-shaped spokes. Low-profile 40-series tires complete the distinctive look while providing a precise, confidence-inspiring drive.

Panoramic roof with front power tilt/slide moonroof and Cockpit Red leather-trimmed seats

Camry’s interior fits your needs and feeds your desires with pleasing finishes and textures. It meticulously blends colors and materials, such as the vibrant look and feel of the available Cockpit Red leather-trimmed interior. Brighten each day with Camry XSE’s available panoramic glass roof with front power tilt/slide moonroof, which invites in more than twice the light of a traditional moonroof. A power-retractable sunshade helps you stay in control if things start to heat up. It’s a practical and stylish cabin with an unrivaled attention to detail.


Our day at the race was nothing short of amazing. First we took 2 laps around Charlotte Motor Speedway with Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr. in the Official Pace Car of Nascar a Toyota Camry. Then we had a few meet & greets and then up to the suite with some executives that work for Toyota to watch the race from turn 4. What a blast to ride, drive & experience all around. Thank you for everything Toyota, and always remember #LetsGoPlaces.
