The concept is all about versatility, including a safari-style cargo roof rack and an ability to go off-roading thanks to the torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system and skid plates, Toyota said.

The crossover-style concept has a bold front end, with a wide grille and LED headlights.

And the fog lights aren’t just fog lights on the FT-AC. If you are out in the woods and need a flashlight, just pop one out and off you go. They can even be attached to the mountain bikes adventurers would be hauling with them thanks to the integrated bike rack, which is retractable.

The concept was designed on a long wheelbase and a wide stance, and includes broad fender flares that shield the body from potential damage when off-roading. It also features 20-inch wheels and all-terrain tires.

Toyota Previews Two Concept-i Variants Ahead of Tokyo Debut

  Toyota Previews Two Concept-i Variants Ahead of Tokyo Debut <p>Toyota’s vision of future mobility</p>Following the 2017 CES debut of the Toyota Concept-i, the Japanese automaker revealed a smaller, city-friendly Concept-i RIDE show car. This new concept, along with a new upright scooter, will take the stage at the upcoming 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

An acronym for Future Toyota Adventure Concept , the FT - AC is obviously an SUV with some cool new features and a rather normal looking design. Toyota isn’t just saying what the FT - AC is previewing (in fact, they’re saying it previews nothing in particular)

Not so different from other small crossovers, the FT - AC – that's " Future Toyota Adventure Concept " – is designed for the active urban adventurer , the weekend warrior that works hard all week and wants to escape to the mountains, desert or beach when tools are put down.

And you will be able to record your adventures with the infrared cameras that are mounted on the side mirrors (they are also portable), and the FT-AC has a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

As conceived, the FT-AC is a gasoline-powered vehicle, but Toyota said it could also offer a hybrid powertrain. The all-wheel drive system will come with a variable terrain-response settings and 4-wheel lock functionality to manage the traction control and throttle response for maximum grip.

The FT-AC is seen as a design experiment, one the company said represents “the next level in Toyota’s adventure-loving line-up of concept vehicles.”

Whether any become reality remains to be seen.

Leaked! This Might be the New Toyota Supra .
It certainly looks like the official teaserOver on SupraMKV, the appropriately named Mark V Supra fan forum, user Supra93 obtained what appears to be an advance copy of Best Car Magazine with what appear to be official images and a full feature on the new Supra. Our Japanese is extremely limited, so we can't confirm any translations of the text, but assuming these photos are authentic, we now have a good idea exactly what the new Supra will look like.
