Though very few details are offered, the teaser includes the phrase “four wheeling, scene stealing,” suggesting that the concept will be off-road ready. In the past, Toyota has used the FT moniker on a number of concepts as it stands for “Future Toyota.” The FT-86 came before the Toyota 86 while the FT-1 Concept is the precursor to the new Supra.
The FT-4X is likely giving us a preview of a new Toyota FJ Cruiser
, an off-road ready SUV that was discontinued in 2014.
If a new FJ Cruiser comes to fruition it is setting up a great new off-road SUV segment that will be made up of the new Ford Bronco
and redesigned Jeep Wrangler.
