Toyota may have ended up disappointing hardcore FJ Cruiser fans.
At the 2017 New York Auto Show, the Japanese automaker introduced the FT-4X Concept, which hinted at a possible FJ Cruiser successor. Unfortunately the internet isn’t very happy with the concept since it drops its off-road prowess to appeal to urban Millennials. The concept rides on the same TNGA platform underpinning the C-HR and Prius, so that doesn’t exactly scream excitement either.
But it is lifestyle oriented, with a nifty “Multi-Hatch” that can open horizontally of vertically. The problem is, it doesn’t live up to the FJ Cruiser’s legacy. So maybe it’s finally time to admit the FT-4X doesn’t intend to replace the FJ Cruiser.
The Japanese automaker also used the 2017 New York Auto Show to show off its updated 2018 Toyota Sienna minivan, sporting a modest refresh and technology upgrades.
