While we are waiting for solid news on any new crossover/ SUV, what do you think about color?

I am not fond of the green on the FT-AC or the orange on the FT-4X. I would like to see more lighter colors. I think the old color Desert Sand (goldish tan) would look great on either one.

What would be your choices?

Seeing as how the concept appears to be a more matte finish, it would be great to see a gunmetal grey finish. It would be awesome if they also gave you the option to change the secondary colour of the front grill and roof.

If it really is going to be a fun weekend vehicle aimed at younger drivers then I can see a few colorful options being offered. Like a light blue and of course red is going to be listed. I actually liked the dark beige kind of color with a white roof.

Bright colors to me are attractive, but they get tiring after awhile. I like dark beige and white too.

For those who like bright colors, the RAV4 hot lava and white would be nice.

I'm more biased towards the blue and white roof combo that the old FJ-Cruiser had. It was just so eye catching in a good way and unique compared to everything else out there. I think Toyota offers that combo on their C-HR, so it's not completely off the lineup.

I wonder if we will be limited to two tone colour options, or if we will be able to fully customize the secondary colours on the new FJ. I for one don't really like the mix of black and white secondary colours, that we've seen on the FT-4X concept. I'd rather have the option to match the grill and roof to that of the fenders. I think the truck would look far better in a uniform black/orange colour scheme.

If thats the case then I hope we have enough flat panels going on as that makes it easier to wrap with vinyl. Wrapping just the roof will be cheap and very effective.

It really depends on where the wrap is located and how much you're looking to spend. I've had hood wraps put on cars in the past, and it didn't take long for stones to put some rips/tears in it, so its probably a safe bet to place a protective film over top the wrap, to make it last as long as possible.

Is wrap pretty durable?
I have seen wrapped cars go through winter and summer with the same wrap on. The trick is finding someone that can install it properly. Sometimes the edges can lift but a good installer can either prevent that or mitigate the severity of it.

Thanks. I had clear door edge guards on my RAV4, but I took them off because the wax got caught on the edges and made an unsightly line. (Dark colored car.) Wouldn't mind a white wrap on the roof however. Edges wouldn't be that long.

Perhaps you won't have to wrap the roof in white if Toyota follows the FJ Cruiser's paint scheme with some body paints being offered with a white roof. Depending on how long you plan to keep the car, maybe those wipe on protective coatings like Ceramic Pro is an options. Only problem is you will have a harder time removing the wrap if you change your mind.

Yeah, I would prefer a painted white roof. The wrap sounds problematic in the hot Arizona sun.
