At this year’s month’s LA Motor Show, Toyota unveiled a brand new cross-over vehicle, with a big difference. The Future Toyota Adventure Concept or FT-AC for short has been designed for both on and off road and so people can enjoy their leisure time and open up some new horizons.
The FT-AC has in-built cameras and Wi-Fi system so your journey can be recorded for remote editing and streamed live. Take your bike off the retractable, integrated bike rack at the back of the car, along with a selection of detachable cameras and lights to continue your adventure when 4 wheels are just too many.
The FT-AC has a long wheelbase, bodywork guarding extra wide wheel arch protectors, 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tyres, wide arch and a high ground clearance. The vehicle has twin hooks for recovery and robust skid plates to protect the front and rear overhangs when driving across rough ground. Just in case you lose your way, the FT-AC also has a geolocation function to guide you back to base LED marker lights are placed around the vehicle to provide ambient lighting and extra forward illumination, or even act as flash for the door mirror embedded cameras. A safari-style roof rack system is also fitted which is capable of carrying all types of adventure equipment. Rear facing LED lights can be remotely operated and are attached to the roof.
Under the body, the FT-AC features all-wheel drive, torque vectoring and variable terrain response. It is petrol-powered but could feature a next generation hybrid power train. At the launch of the FT-AC at the LA Motor Show, Vice President and General Manager of North America’s Toyota Division, Jack Hollis, went to say, “FT-AC is perfect for those outdoor enthusiasts who want to dial up the adventure on their weekend getaways. No matter the roads, the activities, or the people, FT-AC sparks authentic fun and conversation.”
