Wrangler JT to come
Toyota has released a teaser of the new FT-4X concept that it is going to debut next month in New York Auto Show. While we only have a look at its rugged wheel, right now we can only speculate that it's a new SUV/ truck concept.

"FT" stands for "Future Toyota" and "4X" basically implies that it has 4-wheel drive. So what could it be? With Ford bringing a new Bronco back and a new Jeep Wrangler coming soon, maybe Toyota may be looking a new more rugged SUV rival.

The FT-4X will debut on April 12.

That wheel looks a lot like the JL Rubicon ones

Who would put 225/55s on a 'rugged SUV'? This is gonna be another mall crawler....
And fender clearance doesn't seem like enough for a true rugged SUV.

If this is supposed to be FJ successor it'd better not be the same formula as before or it's gonna suffer same fate. It'd have to have solid front axle, removable top, better visibility, and a better aftermarket. And if it ends up being a Wrangler competitor it'll be interesting to see the JL, FT-4X and Bronco all competing in a similar space.

Good! The Wrangler needs competition to make pricing more competitive and force FCA to improve quality.

Don't think we got much to worry about in terms of competition :facepalm:

This makes the FJ Cruiser look like a stunner :giggle:

But seriously that looks like a crossover, I don't think it's going after Jeep or the Bronco.

This might also be the Rav4 replacement

This is supposed to be the "off roady" twin to the Toyota C-HR. But I dunno how it's supposed to have much utility or off road use when it's this small.
