Toyota: Tj Cruiser News **Concept Info (page 1)**

https://www.netcarshow.com/toyota/20...uiser_concept/

Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) intends to showcase its new crossover genre concept vehicle, the Tj CRUISER, for the first time at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The Toyota Tj CRUISER represents the harmonious balance between the roominess of a cargo van and the powerful design of an SUV.

The Toyota Tj CRUISER was designed for drivers with lifestyles where work and play dovetail seamlessly. The "T" in Tj CRUISER stands for "Toolbox" in reference to how the car can be used like a toolbox, while the "j" stands for "joy" in reference to the joy of visiting various places by car. The name "CRUISER," which is traditionally used for Toyota's SUV lineup, is assigned to the Tj CRUISER to express the power of the vehicle. Inside, the passenger seat can be reclined completely flat, and not only can the Toyota Tj CRUISER easily hold outdoor equipment, it can also store large items such as 3-meter long surfboards and bikes.

Design
The square-shaped cabin, similar to that of a van, exudes high utility. Meanwhile, the sturdy suspension realized by large SUV-sized tires is fused with a bold front. The Tj CRUISER symbolizes a new genre incorporating the strengths of a van with those of an SUV.

The hood, roof, and fenders use materials (with special coating) that resist scratches and dirt, even when objects accidentally come into contact with them.

Interior Space
The front and rear passenger seats can be reclined completely flat for storing long items up to 3 meters in length such as surfboards.

The backs of the seats and deck boards include numerous tie-down points to enable easy anchoring of items from small packages to longer objects. Moreover, the large opening of the back door makes for easy loading and unloading of large items such as bikes.

The seat cushion on the passenger seat directly behind the driver can be flipped up towards the front to create dedicated space for storing groceries or shopping items.

The large openings of the sliding doors enable loading and unloading of large items from the sides and easy entry and exit for family members, as well.

Other Features
Use of the next-generation TNGA platform expected

The unit to run on a 2.0-liter class engine + hybrid system

Front-wheel-drive, four-wheel-drive system to be used

Like an Element & a PT Cruiser had a baby, more than any relation to the FJ Cruiser.

Looks kinda neat, but boo on them for using the Cruiser name.

They need to make a successor to the FJ.

This looks like what the future would look like 25 years ago. I am not a fan.

That said, the utility of it looks very good.

I don't care of the looks but the utility is pretty cool. Love the fold down seats.
