Default Toyota Tj Cruiser

More pre-Tokyo auto show releases!
In a kind of weird move that I still don't understand, Toyota's seemingly recreated what looks like a van crossed with a Honda Element, but named Tj, not after the 96-06 Wrangler but
Quote:
T in "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.
While I don't really care for it, I love that someone has created a concept car based on utility and practicality. It's refreshing to not see another sleek supercar with a giant screen for a dashboard aimed at #millenials.

Would be neat if they could make it without the B pillar. Obviously necessary for rollover structure, but would be nice to have that access from the side. I think rear sliding doors make a lot of sense.

Not sure about the looks but love the concept. What a great camping vehicle that would be. I'm a big minivan fan (there's just nothing more practical on the road for a family or someone needing a daily-driver that doubles as a cargo hauler) so I think a 4x4 minivan would be fantastic!

A shame they had to add the "Cruiser" name to it.

I agree, the Honda Element was a great concept. When shopping for a replacement for the Jetta wagon we looked into them and we disappointed to find they stopped making them.
