Hey everyone,

I've been wishing and praying that I'd hear something about this concept, but the more time that goes by, the more dim my outlook becomes. I remember reading a article from the New York Auto show that indicated the FT-4X was 75% production ready...if that's the case then why hasn't Toyota pulled the trigger?

Welcome CJ'S-TJ !

I think they were saying it is 75% production ready IF they decided to build it. But I highly doubt they will now. It's been a year and no encouraging news on that.

keep in mind Toyota is very good at keeping things secret. it is hard to guess exactly what they are up to. also does Toyota really need a ft-4x and a rav4?

Hey CJ'S-TJ, I'm with you.

Well, maybe if they want my money. If they're not interested in me (strong possibility), I'm sure that Jeep, Ford, or, possibly, Mahindra will take it. :wink:

The CEO said they want to make Toyota exciting again and this is a big part of it. Currently they have products that are exciting enough but going into the 2020's these changes continue to give them the competitive edge.

Did not think that Ford would beat Toyota to the off road CUV segment, and I'm curious what they'll deliver with the 'baby Bronco'. Maybe more competition in the segment will be enough for Toyota to reconsider producing the TJ.

They also mentioned that there would be new hybrid models, though I don't know if that was confirmed on the Bronco. Hopefully Ford opens the door for more competitors in the off road segment, because Jeep has sat unchallenged in the segment for too long.

I am beginning to doubt Toyota will ever produce such vehicles. There seems to be a huge commitment to giving existing models a toughened TRD Pro treatment. I think Toyota will put all it's eggs in that basket.

I think it is more likely that a new FJ will be introduced. I once thought that would never happen.

As much as I want to disagree, I agree with you because Toyota has a history of sitting on models that already do well or models that don't seem to cost them much to bring to market. I can see why when they are so profitable. Fortunately products like the new supra show some move towards unique models.
