If Wrangler and FJ Cruiser had babies, it would look like this.

I think this is one of the few times I would approve of an Angry Bird Grille.

I do like the diesel engine paired with a manual transmission though.

Adorable, perhaps. I started drafting this before Arterius2 posted, but I had already concluded and agree that it kind of looks like a cross between a Wrangler and a Toyota FJ Cruiser. The question is what would it look like after the EPA, NHTSA, and others got ahold of it? :lipssealed:

It is also an International Marketing Case Study in waiting: This vehicle is a great example of how brands and model names don't always travel well between countries/cultures/languages: "Troller" as a derivative of "Troll" doesn't have the best of connotations in U.S. English, especially on web forums!

If Ford decided to bring it or a variant to the US market, it might sell, but Ford would be wise to offer it under a different name.

P.S.: Troller's Brazilian website: https://www.troller.com.br/. It's in Portuguese, but Google Chrome can translate for you.

Wikipedia also has some information at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troller_T4
