Earlier this month, the Toyota brand unveiled its revolutionary Toyota FT-4X Concept vehicle at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. The high-function, capable, and rugged four-wheel drive model is the perfect adventure vehicle for city dwellers. Here at your Toyota dealers serving Lemon Grove, CA, we can’t wait to hear more information about what this fun-loving SUV will have to offer!

The four-wheel drive crossover was created by the Toyota brand’s Calty Design Research, Inc. and offers drivers a long list of unique functionalities as well as a compact design. It was designed with the ideas of “Rugged Charm” and “Casualcore” in mind. The designers took the idea of the Casualcore mentality, and knowing that Casualcore adventures start in the city, and instituted a Rugged Charm sensibility. The idea of Rugged Charm places value on simplicity, capability, durability, and the Toyota brand’s lineage and history. Kevin Hunter, President of Calty, had this to say about the new Toyota concept model:

As designers, we’re investing deep thought into the emotional connection with our cars. 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.

It will feature strong, yet capable activity gear, expressive looks, and a multifunctional cabin that features clean lines, advanced tech, and impressive functionality.
