Toyota FT-4X concept proves boxy

Toyota FT-4X concept proves boxy 4The car has been designed by Toyota’s California Calty studio for millennials with an active lifestyle, and features tough, boxy styling and a raised driving position.

In launching the FT-4X, Toyota said the “back is the new front.” This means that the utility starts at the back-end and moves forward. In this case, the tailgate opens one of two ways — horizontally like barn doors in Urban Mode, and vertically like a conventional liftgate in Outdoor Mode. In each half of the tailgate is a storage box — one heated, the other cooled.

Inside is an arsenal of clever, ready-for-anything gadgetry that would rival any 007 Aston Martin and make MacGyver enviously wonder, “How’d they come up with that?” Read all about those features here, and check out the photo gallery above.

But is it really necessary? Your author just went to Zion National Park in a rental-spec Kia Sorento, so the whole idea of needing an adventure-ready overlander (or some unibody approximation thereof) to actually have adventures is ridiculous. Then again, so is buying a Trail Rated Wrangler for grocery duty. If we’re facing down a future flush with crossovers, we’d prefer wacky, fun, emergency beacon-equipped crossovers to the soulless alternative.
