Too bad Toyota doesn't plan to produce the FT-4X concept as it's a more off-road friendly crossover sitting on the C-HR platform. Its got plenty of gimmicks to make it a Jeep Renegade rival and a fuel-efficient 4x4 with Toyota truck quality would have been a nice addition to their lineup.
This is good news for me because looking at the 4X's design its a good indication of what we can expect of a next Generation FJ if they even plan on making a true successor to it and not leave us with this.
Well, it won't be as off-road capable as the FJ if it ever does go into production since it's more geared towards millennials and their occasional camping trip. But it'll still be better for country drives than the C-HR even though they both share the same platform.
"I always imagined like the C-HR is the city mouse and FT-4X is the country mouse," said Ian Cartabiano, studio chief designer at Toyota's Calty Design Research center and part of the FT-4X design team.
