Toyota looks set to roll out yet another concept car, dubbed the Future Toyota Adventure Concept , or FT - AC for short. There’s absolutely no details to go by – Toyota released just one teaser image of the vehicle on its press site, void of the usual accompanying text.

Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Future Toyota Adventure Concept – or FT-AC for short – is aimed at people who enjoy an active lifestyle, especially weekend getaways, the automaker said.

Toyota is Teasing an Adventure Vehicle Concept That Could be a New FJ Cruiser. For those who were disappointed with the debut of the Toyota FT-4X Concept , which was expected to be a followup to the FJ Cruiser but turned out to be a city-dwelling crossover, the teaser photo for the FT - AC looks

The concept is all about versatility, including a safari-style cargo roof rack and an ability to go off-roading thanks to the torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system and skid plates, Toyota said.

The crossover-style concept has a bold front end, with a wide grille and LED headlights.

And the fog lights aren’t just fog lights on the FT-AC. If you are out in the woods and need a flashlight, just pop one out and off you go. They can even be attached to the mountain bikes adventurers would be hauling with them thanks to the integrated bike rack, which is retractable.

The concept was designed on a long wheelbase and a wide stance, and includes broad fender flares that shield the body from potential damage when off-roading. It also features 20-inch wheels and all-terrain tires.

The concept focused on a built-in artificial intelligence (AI) agent that could anticipate the occupants' needs and respond in kind, whether it's suggesting a destination or changing the cabin lighting. It's designed for both autonomous and piloted driving, and exterior screens allow the AI to "communicate" with others.

FT - AC stands for Future Toyota Adventure Concept and if history tells us anything Toyota ’s range of FT concepts usually signal a coming production model. Adventure certainly looks to be high on the list of the FT - AC ’s priorities.

The Toyota FT - AC concept , which stands for Future Toyota Adventure Concept will debut on Thursday, November 30. Compared to the more city friendly FT-4X concept , the FT - AC concept looks a bit more rugged with its large fender flares and the light bar on the roof.

And you will be able to record your adventures with the infrared cameras that are mounted on the side mirrors (they are also portable), and the FT-AC has a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

As conceived, the FT-AC is a gasoline-powered vehicle, but Toyota said it could also offer a hybrid powertrain. The all-wheel drive system will come with a variable terrain-response settings and 4-wheel lock functionality to manage the traction control and throttle response for maximum grip.

The FT-AC is seen as a design experiment, one the company said represents “the next level in Toyota’s adventure-loving line-up of concept vehicles.”

Whether any become reality remains to be seen.
