Interesting! You same "will be"...so I assume you 100% know that to be true?Remote start will be available through the Entune phone app. Expect a yearly subscription fee. Lexus already has the capability through the Enform app. You can also check out the pricing on Lexus's website to get an idea of what it will cost.
I had read about it in the press release below. Not sure about which vehicles will or will not get it.Interesting! You same "will be"...so I assume you 100% know that to be true?
Do all vehicles get it (I.e., smart key and conventional key), or only smart key vehicles?
Great find! Amazing that they posted it three months in advance of the on-sale date.Looks like the 2018 Camry owners manuals (car/nav system/warranty) have been posted to the Toyota Owners website. They should give us a better idea of what to expect. I tried to attach them but they are too big, so I pasted the link below. Get them while you can. Enjoy!

As I skimmed through:
- Two types of multi-function displays -- the typical 4.2" display and the new 7" display
- Some trims will have a foot-operated parking brake; other (presumably higher-end) trims will have an electronic parking brake (pg 212)
- Two types of DRLs (which we've seen in photos) -- "Type A" uses the headlights; "Type B" uses a brighter version of the parking lights (pg 220). I'm guessing Type B refers to what we've seen on the XSE/XLE
- Headlights come on automatically if the windshield wipers are turned on for several seconds and the headlights are on AUTO (pg 222)
- Pedestrian detection and warning when reversing -- doesn't seem to be tied to the parking sensors? (pg 310)
- Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Rear Cross Traffic Braking should help to avoid or reduce low-speed collisions due to stepping on the wrong pedal, being in reverse instead of drive, or when backing out of a space and a car is approaching. Will be interesting to see how these work, or if they prove more annoying than useful (which defeats the purpose since people will turn them off). (pg 322)
- Page 550 has the list of light bulbs, including interior lights; lights not listed are LEDs, according to the note.
- Page 483 also has a list of areas where LEDs are used. It looks like higher-end trims will use mostly LED lights (e.g. turn signals, backup lights), while lower end trims will have regular bulbs in those areas. It is implied (since they are identified as requiring dealer assistance to replace) that all trims will use LED headlights, tail lights, stop lights, and license plate lights.
I have yet to see a "xle V6" trim yet.. wondering if the "XSE" will be the only one with the "V6" and if so would the XLE come with the quad exhaust or just dual. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk[/QUOTE
Doubtful .... Most XLE V6 drivers these days look like a cross between Uncle Albert and Curly! .... these drivers will not be scared off with quads.
My guess would be that there will still be an XLE V6 and that it'll have dual exhausts (left and right). The rear bumper is specific to the LE and XLE and it doesn't look like the quad would fit. But that's just me guessing from the photos.I have yet to see a "xle V6" trim yet.. wondering if the "XSE" will be the only one with the "V6" and if so would the XLE come with the quad exhaust or just dual.
Toyota got it right with the sixth gen 2010-2011 SE i4 with twin exhaust ... Why they put a half assed diffusser 2 pipe cutout on the 7th gen that couldn't fill the slot is beyond me?My guess would be that there will still be an XLE V6 and that it'll have dual exhausts (left and right). The rear bumper is specific to the LE and XLE and it doesn't look like the quad would fit. But that's just me guessing from the photos.
I'll bet that's why the SE gets dual exhausts on one side (vs. one tip on each side). The SE/XSE share the same bumper, and a single exhaust tip would look awfully small in the same cutout used for the XSE.
I think Nissan got it right with the Altima -- even the low-end S model has dual exhausts that are nicely finished and give the rear a premium look. Of course, they cheaped-out in other areas (was surprised that the mirrors don't fold on the Altima S rental that I had), so win some, lose some.
On a different note, interesting how most of the vehicles we're seeing from the dealer meetings to the previews at dealerships are the high-volume, 4-cylinder LE and SE trims. Makes sense that they'd want to show the dealers what most people will be shopping for vs. just the top-end XSE and XLE models that have made the auto-show rounds.
I am guessing that all trims do have LED headlight that serves as both hi/low beams. On the XLE and XSE the inner lens is LED and on the LE and SE its the turn signal.
So is led headlights standard on the Camry? This 4 cylinder "SE" appears to have led headlights
