Toyota reveals the funky FT-AC concept with built-in WiFi and infrared cameras. 

Say hello to this new off-road concept from Toyota that has just made its debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Motor Show. Billed as the FT-AC Concept – which stands for Future Toyota Adventure Concept, this funky looking SUV is just a design study as of now and there’re no plans to put it into production. That said, it comes with some interesting features as you’ll read on next…

To start with, there’s no denying that it looks a little too rugged with its over-the-top styling - chunky front end, squared off grey wheel arches, a wide track, massive 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps and a bike rack at the back are some design elements that clearly stand out. Sure, all these bits come together to make it look really cool, but that’s not its party trick.

So, what's so special about this off-road concept? Well, it comes with a built-in WiFi along with infrared cameras embedded into the wing mirrors. As Toyota puts it, this allows the driver to stream their adventurous expeditions live on social media. Yes, the footage can be uploaded to a cloud-based storage real time.

There’s no news on its powertrain or specifications as yet – which is kind of understood since it’s not intended to go into production, remember? That said, Toyota says the concept comes powered by a petrol engine that is coupled to an all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring. That’s, however, of no significance until Toyota decides to put it into production. Which is not happening, we’re told…
