Exclamation Toyota TJ Cruiser Pricing

Odds are if you know which segment the TJ Cruiser (FT-4X) sits in, the Toyota models above and below it and what it competes with, then you'll know pricing.

Toyota said it themselves, the TJ will underpin the CH-R, meaning a sub-$22k product.

Drilling down even further, products like the Juke ($20K) and Kia Soul ($17k) are said to be direct competitors.

From that short analysis, my guesstimate puts this as a $19-20k product.

What does everyone else think?

one thing for sure is Toyota doesn't need to compete with Kia on pricing since Toyota has an advantage and that's not the only reason. that other reason is related to all Toyota is including with the TJ, even a base TJ won't be as basic as a base Soul.... that's if my assumptions are right.

Around $22k for the TJ Cruiser would be ideal, but that won't happen if Toyota gives it a comprehensive list of standard features similar to what we see on the concept. Even without all the sliding panels and whatnot, the sheer amount of moving parts from the body alone will drive the pricing up.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it sit around the new Wrangler's prices.

Making it sit around the new Wranglers price would put it more geared towards competing with the Wrangler opposed to the Soul and Renegade. There seems to be a toss up between what this TJ Cruiser will be competing with. Baby FJ would position it lower down opposed to Wrangler rival.

That would do Toyota no good because that's why they have the FJ.

The only way you can have both an entry-level Wrangler and TJ in the same discussion is if a high spec TJ ($23k?) isn't as great as an entry-level Wrangler ($23k)

I thought it'd be more of a Wrangler rival since the TJ cruiser was to have some off-road capability, but if that's not the case then the Renegade would be a more apt competitor.

Renegade in Trailhawk form would be best to go against it I guess.

Really gotta see how capable it is when they bring it in production spec. Without knowing much about what suspension they're running, axles and diffs, etc. we can't really make too much of a judgement on it

Toyota had to plug that "off-road" mention somewhere just to let people know its no snowflake CUV. Yeah its a compact but its just as capable as something larger, or at least brings something new to the CUV segment.

Ultimately you have to start with which segment it sits in. Even a sedan/wagon can have off-road capabilities (ex. Audi All-Road A4)

Off-road capabilities can mean many things..

Could mean that it's good enough to literally go off-road and hit a trail. You can take an Accord on a trail essentially. But it is a word that everyone loves to hear and especially in this segment. Of course I'm sure it'll be more competent than an Accord but you get the point.

I was under the assumption that off-road refers to cars that can take on the odd rocky and mud filled trail. I'm guessing Toyota wanted to shoehorn that word somewhere just so they can justify a higher price.
