I can definitely see a few extra creature comfort features in the FT-4X compared to the Wrangler. Things like leather seats and nicer interior trim.

So apparently this time around Toyota might aim at making this a real Wrangler rival.
If it takes after the following concept I might seriously consider it:

That makes me think of a beefier version of the Jeep Renegade, but if it really does look similar to the concept and it can perform off road then the JL may have some competition from the FT-4X. There's plenty of ground clearance and the overall design looks off-road ready.

The Toyota FT-4X is supposed to appear at the New York auto show and it is rumored to take after the RAV4. But this is purely speculation since Toyota has not leaked anything about the FT-4X at all, for all we know it could look like this third party rendering.

Now those are two completely different designs in mind. If it's Rav4 like the one above, there is no chance at aiming that at a Wrangler and succeeding. If it's the first one (concept) they may well be able to stand a good chance but only if it can play the part.

Not only that but they are in different segments, no relation, maybe they will share steering wheels and steering racks but not a lot of what we're seeing. Might as compare the Compass to Wrangler while we're at it. Compass vs Rav4 is more like it.

Trailhawk edition Compass compared to that Rav4 above. You literally cannot compare the Wrangler to a Rav4 unless the only thing they used was the body panels.

We'll know what it looks like soon at the New York auto show. Maybe it'll make those who are loyal to the Japanese brand interested in the off-road segment.

Japanese brands have done well across the world in off-roading now this might be the first real shift for them in North America to take on Jeep and the like.

Toyota just better not drop the ball on this one, by making it look some of the part and not all the way.

Having it look some of the part isn't really a bad thing. I'd rather it look some of the part but actually perform all the way rather than the look of it.
