Toyota Previews the TJ Cruiser Concept for Tokyo

Toyota is back introducing “Cruiser” models again. This time the world’s largest brand is previewing the TJ Cruiser, which stands for Toolbox Joy Cruiser.

The concept is intended to be a everyday vehicle that can also be adjusted to be a utility van, or visa versa. This has been a concept among many Japanese Toyota concepts as of late.

The TJ Cruiser likely previews the next generation or replacement of the Succeed/Probox, which are smaller utility vans, but with available passenger versions. This vehicle is predominately sold in Japan and that is where this concept is likely to stay if it sees production.

The concept is powered by a 2.0L Hybrid and rides on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).

The TJ will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month.

    with its "the-box-it-came-in" 'styling',

    it'd be awfully easy to add a simple bar-across-the-front bumper as an extra cost option



    Yea I think it would just look more 'complete' without it, it's kind of like that girl everyone knew in high school that had no chin :p

    Doesn't look horrible but still looks off. Maybe the lack of a front bumper?

    In some strange way I like the thing.

    Interesting when VW Thing, Kia Soul, Ford Flex, and GMC Granite design cues are blended together.

    Not sure about the dash, but I do think this would sell rather well overall in the US.
