  1. April fools?

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    Even though this is a joke, part of me thinks that a sleek supermini like this would actually get a decent amount of interest, especially under the Toyota badge. Ever since cars like the Subaru Brat disappeared I always wondered who would be the first to reintroduce something similar.
  2. Toyota building a space rover

    Off Topic Discussion
    That's some pretty incredible range that I'm assuming is being done with fuel cell technology? Many still doubt its potential for the mass market, but people said the same thing about EV's a decade ago.
  3. Toyota won my respect with its "Toni" super bowl commercial

    The TRD trims do little to improve off road prowess, but Toyota is finally updating some of the really old technology found in their trucks. At least we are finally starting to see some fresh designs as well.
  4. Chicago Auto Show

    Wonder if there will be anything at the CIAS either. They usually don't get any reveals, but Toyota's has been pretty quiet about the TJ's presence at every show thus far.
  5. Detroit Auto Show

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    The window on this is closing quickly, though I have come across a few different publications that also say the TJ Cruiser is set to make an appearance. Toyota's big focus has unsurprisingly been the new Supra.
  6. RAV4 rollout!

    Not all turbo's require premium fuel, but its definitely recommended if you want them to last. What's the difference in the approach angle between the hybrid and adventure trims?
  7. Waiting to release as an EV

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    So it looks like Toyota may be doubling down on electric production, as it looks like their newest crossover (C-HR) will become an electric exclusively in China. Do you think that maybe they are considering releasing the TJ as a fully electric CUV, as opposed to an off roader? It looks like the...
  8. Toyota to partner with Suzuki

    Off Topic Discussion
    It looks like the partnership between Toyota and Suzuki is in an effort to produce more cars in India. Suzuki will supply gasoline and mild-gasoline hybrid versions of its Baleno hatchback, along with the Vitara Brezza compact SUV to Toyota while the latter will produce gasoline and...
  9. RAV4 rollout!

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    Glad to hear that the new model will be receiving a power boost, but I have a feeling that the highest performing trim will be the hybrid. It'll be interesting to see how the electric motors increase its capabilities off road.
  10. RAV4 rollout!

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    This model should be using their new CVT with the launch gear though right? Wont lie that I've been avoiding those transmissions like the plague, as imo they take a lot of the fun out of driving.
  11. FT-4X Breakdown

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser Videos
    Ah the good old Suzuki Samurai...really wish that Suzuki would return to the NA market, as they are in my opinion one of the best budget off road manufacturers. There are definitely pros and cons to every brand though, and its just a shame that its taking so long for someone to release a true...
  12. FT-4X Breakdown

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser Videos
    Hopefully Toyota decides to bring over the multi hatch to one of their production models, because I think that was one of the FT-4X most compelling features. Have they indicated if the Rav4 has a powered lift gate or not?
  13. RAV4 rollout!

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser General Discussion Forum
    Surprisingly enough it looks like there are a bunch of publications that are still on the fence about whether or not the new Rav4 is an improvement over the outgoing model...It's like car companies can't do anything new anymore, and everyone just wants more of the same.
  14. FT-4X Breakdown

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser Videos
    As soon as they began to show how many removeable components there were in this concept, I knew our chances of a production model were slim. I mean who needs water bottle door handles and boom box cup holders? Maybe they will revisit this model as demand for hybrid/electric crossovers increases.
  15. FT-4X Breakdown

    2018+ Toyota TJ Cruiser Videos
    So in an effort to find any new information in relation to the FT-4X I recently came across this video that was just released a few weeks ago. Love the idea of it being branded as a "Swiss army knife on wheels". Although I doubt all of these modular components will be on a production model.
