remember, back years ago, when the 4 runner was popular. Even cool.
It was too late to cancel the next one, so Toyota decided to go ahead. But sales numbers have been revised to low. Very low. That means that,when it comes out next year, it'll be a while before you actually see one in the streets...
From this illustration at least, it looks like they are going for a "baby Sequoia" look. Not really what the market is into right now.
And the cool looking FJ cruiser, based on the current 4 runner platform, will not be redesigned when it is laid to rest next year.
