Toyota trademark application hints at FT-4X becoming a reality

01.06.2017

Although previously claimed to be nothing more than a concept despite its designer calling it "75% production ready", Toyota has reportedly filled a trademark application for the designation TJ Cruiser, hinting at a possible production version of the FJ Cruiser-inspired FT-4X shown at the New York Auto Show in April.

Based on the same TNGA architecture as the C-HR and fitted, in concept guise, with four-wheel drive and a low range gearbox, the futuristic FT-4X  sported a minimalist interior and innovative multi-hatch opening tailgate, with Toyota touting as a vehicle for millennials wanting something rugged and good looking rather than of a hardcore off-roader.

Although not expected to directly replace the FJ Cruiser by virtue of its smaller engine and perhaps a permanent all-wheel drive configuration, the TJ will like retain the FT-4X's retro styling albeit watered down if it does became a reality.
