Let's hope it's not all the same kind of SUV, city drivers but in various sizes. At that point, Toyota will be living up to their reputation for vanilla cars.

I wonder if their shifting focus towards CUV's mean we will see them implement some of their hybrid/electric systems into some of them. That seems to be the next logical step for crossovers, and Kia has showcased their potential with the new Kona.

No surprise when that's what the rest of the industry is doing but as always Toyota is a bit late to come to market with certain vehicles. Only sometimes they are first to market, last product I can recall was the Prius.

I am kind of disappointed that the TJ Cruiser has not been seen anywhere since it's appearance in Tokyo. Hope it at least shows up in a show in Europe or Asia.

I'm disappointed that we didn't learn anything new in Tokyo. How many times is Toyota going to show us the exact same concept, and not give us any more information about the TJ? It's becoming more and more likely that we wont see a production model until 2020.

Not appearing at Geneva either. :( I had hoped we would see it again in Europe or Asia.

The wait is just slowly chipping away at my sanity, especially when there's so little news from Toyota or otherwise. I'm hoping Toyota won't stick with local shows only for its reveal or we'll be waiting for the Tokyo Motor Show in the fourth quarter of this year.

At least we have the New York Autoshow to look forward to, because we'll get to see the new Rav4 unveiled. I'd like to know what Toyota has planned for a powertrain, because limited options could suggest another model is coming.

I'll be looking froward to the new Rav4 and its adventure trim because it may need to be my plan two in case the TJ Cruiser takes more than 3 years to come out. At that point a lease would end and we could move on to something more suited to our lifestyles.
Here's to hoping the Cruiser debuts this year and goes on sale next year so my plan B doesn't need to be deployed.

I am in a better position there. I have a 2015 RAV4 which I am happy with so in no hurry for something new and I can wait. I am interested in the TJ Cruiser because I prefer something smaller.....with sufficient cargo capacity.

Similar to you, I have a owned vehicle as well so time is not a problem unless I get restless and can't wait anymore. There's so many more options coming out in the next few years to fill the void that has been dominated by Jeep so far. Though the TJ Cruiser is preferable, my patience will only stretch on for so long.

I don't mind holding out for a year or two more, the FJ Cruiser still feels relevant to me although some say its past its prime. Plus most owners i have spoken to have nothing but positive things to say.

The problem is that by waiting another year or two, Toyota may find themselves not being the only competition for the Wrangler. I think first to market is a big factor for success in this segment, people are just waiting for something that doesn't share the FCA reliability concerns found in the Wrangler.
