Flares and roof lights would suggest that this is a proper BOF 4x4, but given the ridiculous concepts Toyota has been rolling out lately, this could be some kind of awful crossover.

Front and rear independent suspension. And then everybody's head will explode. And no I'm not being sarcastic or trolling. I'd be just as sad as everybody else.

Maybe they'll bring back the FJ. What ever it is, looks pretty good so far. Or it might be a teaser concept that never makes it to production.

Take this crumb for what it's worth, but when I told a Toyota corporate staffer last week that I was sad for selling my 4R but was waiting for the sixth gen, the reply was "you won't have to wait long!"

Could be hyperbole, could be something, who knows.....

Is the Next Toyota 4Runner going to happen, Mahindra coming to the USA and Chevrolet Sonic's future? [Ask Nathan] - The Fast Lane Car
Quote:
Q:Greetings Nathan and crew! I have a big question for you.

Is it true that Toyota will stop building the 4Runner!? I am a huge 4Runner fan and between me and my brother, we own six! I was thinking about heading to Colorado and showing you guys my favorites. Anyway I head the rumor from more than one source that the sales are tanking and they are seriously considering cancelling it like they stupidly did with the FJ Cruiser.

Thanks Nathan and GO STEELERS!

Wayne


A: Hi Wayne!
Thanks for the email!

I havenít heard a single peep out of Toyota regarding the 4Runner. There have been no official statements one way or the other. Usually, something this big would be regurgitated throughout the internet.

A few folks are saying things on boards, but thereís no validity to anything they speculate.

Hereís what I do know. In 2017 thus far, Toyota is selling more 4Runners than they did during the same months in 2016. They are easily selling around 10,000 every month. That ainít too shabby.

Why kill something thatís selling so well? I think, at the very least, the Toyota 4Runner may be updated soon. Itís possible that they may change the running-gear to make it more efficient or perform better. Itís such a damn good performer, maybe they will update some internal goodies as well.

The TFL team will be in California for the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show and weíll have a chance to talk to the Toyota folks in person. Maybe we can glean more information about the 4Runner then.

As for your Toyota 4Runner collection; we would love to see it! Send some information to info@tflcar.com. Please include your contact information and a few photos would be nice.

Cheers & go Steelers!!

Made me smile. Reminds me of my wife's family, who all operate on what they call "Mexican time". Aka, pretty-much get there whenever you get around to it. Took me a few years to get used to it.

"Long" in "Toyota-time" model-life is 15 years. So he could have easily meant 2 years. Just sayin'.

I remember seeing this guy post on the DFW 4Runner or the local 4runner group, ( which he works at the Toyota Headquarters in Plano, TX ) saying that they had a meeting a few weeks ago about upcoming vehicles and that the 6th gen will be a 2019 model and comes with optional hybrid. He also stated that the corporate wasn't so wow about the upcoming Tundra but more excited about the 4runner.

Take it for what its worth, but my brother is a sales manager at Toyota and his best friend is also a sales manager at a different Toyota dealership. I asked them both independently when we will see a new model of 4Runner and they said definitely not in 2019.

That picture is the FT-AC concept. Hood, lights, etc. all say Rav4 to me.

There is only one fact concerning the burning 6th Gen question: Those who truly know the answer, ain't talking.

If Toyota wanted this information out (and they don't) there would be far more reliable sources than dealer salespeople.

I'm still putting my money on a 2-door option being made available alongside the fullsize to compete with Jeep and makeup for ground lost in the wake of the fj cruiser.. they make 2-door (aka 3-door) Prado's so there's no reason not to.

Yep: Toyota FT-AC Concept to Debut in L.A. - Motor Trend

"Compact Crossover" doesn't sound like a 4Runner replacement to me.

Where are you reading that it's not? Seems like all speculation to me. You are probably right but no where in that article does it definitively say it's a compact crossover. It suggest that maybe it's a reiteration of the FT-4X but nothing more.
