Toyota FT-4X Concept Revealed As The Millennial’s FJ Cruiser
The FJ Cruiser may be a thing of the past, but Toyota has revealed a new model – in concept form at least – that could take its place.
Called the FT-4X, the show truck was revealed today at the New York Auto Show. It was designed by Toyota’s Calty Design Research studio in California to bring some “rugged charm” to urban Millennials looking to escape the city for brief adventures off the proverbial beaten path.
Based on the C-segment Toyota New Global Architecture, it’s substantially smaller than the FJ Cruiser: a good 8 inches lower to the ground and 16 inches shorter from nose to tail. ut with the wheels pushed further out to the extremities, its wheelbase is only a couple of inches shorter and narrower.
