I just built the same vehicle on the toyota website, total comes to $32166 OTR.
Looks like you got $2131 discounts in total, $1885 discounts before taxes. That is not bad at all. No guarantee to be the best price obviously, but its VERY reasonable and FARRRR from being ripped off. If you're happy with the sales you're dealing with, go for it!

It's not bad but not great. Keep in mind this is the last year for this generation of Camry so they will need to unload these god awful machines before the beauty of the 2018 Camry starts rolling off the line...

Overall though if you're happy with the car and the salesperson you're dealing with you got at least a decent deal out of it.

Thank you so very much for your feedback, I don't think I can squeeze him any more for a better price but I most certainly will try. LoAneal, I am aware that this is the last year for this generation but I do need a car now and not next year.
So far I have driven only Honda till I drove a friends Camry and kinda liked it. This is going to be my first switch to Toyota, hope I am not going to regret it.
I thank you both for your prompt feedback, RFD is an awesome site.

The 2018 is a few months away. You will regret buying a new 2017 now.. The upgrades from 2017 to 2018 are staggering.

If you need one now, why not buy used and sell it later?

If you are set on buying new, take the offer you have now, email all Toyota dealers within say, 100km, and ask them to beat it. Make sure you explicitly list out the exact model/package/color/options. From there, you can either buy from those dealers or you can take the best offer of the lot back to your salesman and have him match it.

Don't feel the least bit guilty to squeeze your salesman - milking you is his profession, and he is never losing money.

The 2018 is almost 100% all new parts, very few carry over. The 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engine is all new as is the chassis and everything in between. Even that cruise control stubby knob is gone and that has been used on Toyotas since the early 90s if not earlier!

Ya the whole of the 2018 Camry is amazing. The fact they are keeping the V6 is gosh dang astonishing. Especially since every other midsize are getting rid of their V6's in trying to save money and fuel economy. AND they are putting a 8 speed auto instead a crappy CVT on ALL trim levels. That added in with actual styling for a change and actual effort into the interior and exterior of the car in terms of materials and technology Toyota seems to actually be putting effort into their cars again. If my car could have held out until the end of the year I woulda bought one of those XSE V6's, but sadly I had to settle for an Accord V6.

I never had any plans to buy a Camry since despite their reliability and ease of maintenance, I was never a fan of the styling and lack of fun to drive. But this new one (and Motor Trend had A LOT of good things to say about it), sounds like it's a sporty contender with a lot of cool tech. That heads up nav display, red leather interior, black roof option ... very appetizing! If it's the same V6 as the Highlander, potentially it's 295HP. I wonder what kind of 0-60 it's capable of. I know 0-60 is not a measuring stick for a car's worthiness but if it can do it in the mid 5s, that'd be amazing!

Ya I've never even put Toyota on the radar due to their bland nature. Like their V6 Camry I'm told is fun to drive, but that's mostly because of a V6 in there.

But ya everything about the 2018 Camry screams good stuff. I want a HUD soooo much. Had one back on my 1996 Bonneville and it's just so freaking nice to have. The red leather too, ugh so nice. All of that car is nice. I'm hoping their keep their V6 tuned up to the Highlander numbers as it would be pretty awesome. I get the feeling they will tune it down a bit to get more favorable fuel economy numbers but we'll wait and see.

Also helps every car publication that has driven the car or seen it has gushed about how Toyota is actually trying again and it's a blast to drive and be in. Suffice to say I want it, really wish I didn't need to get a car now but I will have to live with my V6 Accord for at least 5 years before I will probably trade in and upgrade to this...

I would get a fully loaded XSE V6 in red! Too bad my Matrix is doing so well and I'm still paying off my wife's 2016 Corolla until 2019.
