Toyota Debuts “Funster” FT-4X Concept SUV at New York Auto Show By Philly Murtha, April 14, 2017 To entice urban millennials in search of adventure, Toyota showed off a FT-4X SUV Concept 4-wheel drive crossover at the New York Auto Show.
The FT-4X Concept features wide, black over-fenders.
A vertical picture window set above the driver’s side rear fender reminds of classic Toyota utilities.
Built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) C-platform, the rear end features a rotating door handle at the center.
FT-4X has a spacious interior with designated cargo areas including orange and blue warm and cold storage boxes for snacks, ice packs and blankets.
referring to For now, the Toyota FT-4X is just a concept, but I could see this eventually spawning a production model.
Ladies and gents, meet the new FT-4X Concept.
From the side angle, you can see a distinct “X” look with the door handle falling in the center.
The rear end also has an “X” look to it.
For seven years (2007-2014), Toyota actually offered an SUV that could give the Wrangler a run for its off-road money.

referring to At each of the four corners of the bottom X is an 18-inch wheel wearing a custom 225/55R-18 Goodyear All-Season tire.
But in one design decision that bucks the traditional technological trend, the FT-4X does not get a navigation touch screen.
Engine specifications are sketchy on the concept which Toyota claims could be a small displacement four cylinder engine sending power through a four wheel drive system.
Toyota explains the concept was designed for millennials, a demographic that uses phone-based applications like Google Maps more often than the car’s built-in infotainment system.
Given that the new C-HR is aimed towards that segment, perhaps an FT-4X special edition might be possible?
