Toyota Teases Extreme Off-Road Concept Coming To LA

Teaser / Comments

Is Toyota cooking up a potential Mercedes G-Class rival?

The LA Auto Show is opening its doors in just a few weeks, and so inevitably automakers are starting to tease some upcoming reveals we can expect to see. Ahead of the show, Toyota has teased a new concept that will debut in LA called the FT-AC (which stands for "Future Toyota Adventure Concept.") The teaser image appears to show a rugged off-roader featuring roof rails and some rather garish fender flares. Auxiliary off-road lights sit above the windshield complementing large LED fog lights located in the bumper.

Not much else can be gleaned from the image, though – at this point it's difficult to tell if we're looking at an SUV or a pickup truck. What it does suggest, though, is that Toyota is interested in building a new hardcore off-roader tailored for the North American market. Cast your mind back to the New York Auto Show earlier this year, and you may remember Toyota revealing the FT-4X Concept SUV which featured a rugged aesthetic similar to the Jeep Wrangler. It all points to the possibility of Toyota cooking up a hardcore off-roader to rival the Mercedes G-Class. Toyota says the FT-AC concept has "all the ingredients for your next adventure."

No specifications have been revealed, but Toyota will be revealing the FT-AC during a live online stream on November 30 at the LA Auto Show.
