4 Wheel & Off Road - - DRIVELINES -

Call it FT-AC for short. Toy­ota does. The FT-AC con­cept “puts ver­sa­til­ity at the fore­front of its ethos” and “sparks au­then­tic fun and con­ver­sa­tion,” says Toy­ota. Parse the PR-speak and it does sound like fun, with imbed­ded, in­frared cam­eras in the side mir­rors to record trail ad­ven­tures and fog­lights that can be taken off their pods and used for night­time hik­ing or moun­tain bik­ing.

Me­chan­i­cal de­tails for the con­cept truck were few, but Toy­ota en­vi­sions it with “ad­vanced, torque-vec­tor­ing all-wheel drive” and “vari­able ter­rain-re­sponse set­tings and 4-wheel-lock func­tion­al­ity.” FT-AC “could of­fer a next-gen­er­a­tion hy­brid pow­er­train that blends fuel ef­fi­ciency with rugged all-wheel-drive grunt.”
