I just watched the video presentation of FT-AC and it seems like a lot of its features will be controlled by your smartphone. Speaking of door handles, I think they used "one-touch" technology for FT-AC doors, so now when you come close to the door with a key fob inside your pocket you just need to touch it to open. I think they will represent a lot more modern and sophisticated details soon, so stay tuned.I think you are right. It is a good successor to the FJ. I love it's looks!
It wouldn't be what I want because it is too big. The TJ would be a better fit for me. I am pretty certain that the TJ will be produced in Japan for that market. Whether it makes it here is an open question.
The automotive writers seem to think this is a foretelling of the next RAV4 in styling. It may come as an Adventure option like this one-off.
I notice there are no door handles or interior shots, which to me says it is just an exercise. Maybe the show will reveal more?
