What is the Toyota FT-4X Concept?

This week at the New York International Auto Show, Toyota unveiled the FT-4X Concept, or Future Toyota Four-Wheel Drive Crossover. With a rugged exterior and well-equipped interior, the Toyota FT-4X Concept is designed to be an ideal companion for adventures both in the city and off the beaten path.

“The Toyota FT-4X is not simply a concept where style meets function; it is a thoughtful, charming and engaging experience that adds real pleasure and convenience to the journey. We focused on how a crossover vehicle can add fun and value to casual adventures both in and out of the city, thinking about how someone would use it, and what they would love to do with it.”

– Kevin Hunter, President of Toyota’s Calty Design Research Inc.
