Since Toyota may never release something like the TJ Cruiser, I am looking at affordable alternatives. I am not interested in an off roader so a small crossover will work for me.

Here is the Hyundai Venue. It looks like it will have a squared off rear roof so cargo should be decent despite being smaller than the Kona.

Not a fan of Korean products but i'm willing to give this a shot.

Ford on the other hand has been on my radar. The 2020 Ford Escape if offered with some off-road trim might be what I go for.

Its not yet clear which direction Ford will go, some are saying sporty only

Reminds me a lot of my xB. Just wonder if it will be as reliable. This something I would like to see Toyota make.

You have to right click over the uploaded image URL or thumbnail and select the "open image" option.
From there you grab that .jpg link and paste it in this code

This image from a Bronco event (dealers only) shows a smaller Bronco in the foreground. Could that be the Bronco alternative we're getting?

I am not seeing a smaller version. The one in the center is a side view of the one to the left. All the shadowing under the vehicle in the middle picture may be making it look smaller?

The smaller is what actually looks like a real vehicle. Behind it is a shadow of the bigger version.
FYI... I don't think the smaller version will appear as big as it is here.

Mazda-Toyota Plant in Alabama,
"Rumor has it the Toyota is a production version of the FT-4X Concept ..."
Hey, great to see someone post here again!
I would love that rumor to be true, but I don't think that will happen. My bet is it will be Corolla Cross built there.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see what it turns out to be.

I'm holding out hope for Toyota to build a small squarish suv. I need to replace my xb for the next road trip to see the country. Thank you for all your postings.

I agree, I loved the squareness of my 2004 xB. I could pack so much stuff in there.
