It may well be that the new Japanese crossover may be the serial version of the previously presented FT-4X concept, which was shown at the 2017 New York Motor Show.
In early December this year, Toyota filed a 4Active trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Now we need to think carefully about which vehicle the Japanese brand will use this name. Is 4Active just a concept, or is it a future production model of the company? Or did the Japanese company simply apply for a trademark registration to simply reserve it and use in the future?
I still think that it is about using the 4Active name for the future new compact crossover.
Yes, yes, at the moment there is no evidence of this theory and in particular words from Toyota representatives that this is so, but still …
We know that Toyota plans to mass-produce its new crossover at its plant in Alabama (USA ) – the company will be built in conjunction with another Japanese automaker Mazda. Well, the name 4Active seems very good for the novelty.
Given the likelihood that the “new” 4Active will become another mid-size Japanese brand SUV, we can only believe that the model will eventually appear as a production version of the FT-4X concept, which in turn was shown at the 2017 New York Auto Show. The concept of a square crossover with a sporty appearance resembled the infamous Toyota 4Runner and FJ Cruiser SUVs, but was built on the compact, solid Toyota New Global Architecture-C platform.
With the advent of more crossovers between the subcompact and compact segments (e.g. Jeep Compass, Kia Seltos and Nissan Rogue Sport), it seems reasonable for Toyota to introduce its competitor of a similar size to fill the void between the C-HR and RAV4 models at auction carzaamin.com/auction. The only question is: will this crossover be called 4Active when it inevitably appears? Toyota will produce spare parts for Supra coupes of generations A70 and A80
Toyota has announced that it will start producing individual parts for the Supra sports coupe of the A70 and A80 generations as part of the GR Heritage Parts Project and will sell them both domestically and abroad.
The project is an initiative to launch the production of parts that are currently inaccessible to fans of the iconic car, so that owners of the A70 and A80 generations of Supra can continue to drive their favorite cars. A list of just a few details is currently approved.
For the A70 Supra, Toyota will manufacture a cardan shaft, a door handle, a fuel level sensor, a seal and a front emblem, while for the A80 Supra, it will initially produce headlights, a door handle and a brake booster. The Japanese brand hopes to start retailing parts this year, but warns that manufacturing delays could delay the deadline by 2021.
Toyota will show some of the reproduced parts at the Tokyo Motor Show.
If any Supra owners are disappointed that Toyota carzaamin.com/blog/honda-civic-for-sale-in-lahore-pakistan/ will not play a specific part that they might need, the automaker has an online request form where the owners can tell which parts they think should be resumed. Toyota will summarize all requests received and use this data when deciding which parts are most in demand.
Toyota is not the only company to launch such a “legacy” program in recent years. In 2017, Nissan announced that it would start playing parts for its Skyline generation R32, R33 and R34 sports car. Similarly, Mazda has been making parts for the MX-5 Miata Roadster for some time now.
