Toyota FT-4X aka FJ Cruiser Successor – All you need to Know about Toyota FT 4X

Toyota ‘FT-4X’ , the Possible Successor of FJ Cruiser. 2014 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams edition marked the end of FJ Cruiser’s journey in US market. Even though the sale was still continued in other parts of the world, mainly Australia, the production of this truck was finally stopped completely on last August. This is disappointing because despite the weak sales in the USA, this truck is pretty cool and it has some loyal followings. However, it seems like Toyota still has some faith in this truck because this Japanese car manufacturer had just registered FT 4X trademark last week. And rumor has it; this is going to be the name of a new truck that will be the successor of FJ Cruiser. Toyota FT-4X Specifications The Name Game — Toyota FT 4X FT stands for Future Toyota. Meanwhile, 4X possibly hints to 4-wheel drive. The FT name itself has been used two times in other Toyota cars. The first one is FT1 concept car which is believed is going to be the next Supra. The second one is the FT-86 concept that now has become Toyota GT 86 . Actually, the application was just filed on 10 October 2016, and the manufacturer stays silent about this. So, it is still too early to decide whether Toyota FT-4X is going to be the successor for FJ Cruiser or Toyota just wants to make sure that no one is going to snatch that name. Probably, this rumor arises because Jeep Wrangler, Ford Bronco, and Land Rover are preparing to launch their new generation off-road truck. And, the competition will be a little bit off without Toyota’s truck in there. And since FJ Cruiser is no longer a threat, it is possible that FT 4X is the new Toyota Truck which prepares to join the competition.

Unfortunately, there is no information regarding specifications, launching date and pricing. However, FJ Cruiser still has its shortcoming, and if Toyota wants to launch FT4X as a new truck, many things need to be improved. The new truck must have the real off-road credential to survive the competition. And furthermore, looking at the current trend, conventional design is preferable than FJ Cruiser’s retro style.
