Toyota FT-4X concept debuts at the 2017 New York Auto Show
Toyota FT-4X concept gets a multi hatch that opens both horizontally and vertically.
Based on the C-segment Toyota New Global Architecture, the new Toyota FT-4X is a highly fuel efficient SUV that embodies all the elements required by the next generation of adventure seekers. The off-roader is painted a brilliant shade of orange and stretches 4.2 meters in length and 1.62 meters in height. It sits on a 2.63 meter wheelbase and sports a multi hatch that opens horizontally and vertically.
This new Toyota crossover gets a removable window glass, a GoPro camera mounted on rear view mirror and a horizontal front grille. Massive headlights and bumper are also evident which play a vital role for an SUV in this category. It sits on all season tyres with McPherson front suspension that can take on the most rugged of terrain.
Interiors of the new Toyota FT-4X spells comfort for upto 7 adults. It gets second row seats that fold down and a host of storage spaces throughout its interior to house all sorts of sports and adventure equipment. The rear doors are multifunctional and can be opened on eight side hinges or lifted up for easy exit.
The doors get dual temperature controlled storage boxes, one hot and the other cold for storage of food and drinks and under-floor storage offers even more storage space with a North Face sleeping bag lodged between front seats. The rear seat has two storage boxes to store blankets, gloves and other adventure gear. Interior lights can be removed to be used as flashlights while rear door handles can be used as water bottles.
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. There is also no word on when Toyota plans on taking up the new FT-4X for production.
Set to target urban Millennials who are seeking to escape hectic city life for a weekend of adventure, the Toyota FT-4X could make it to production in the coming years.
