Overview Information

Toyota aims at a young male audience with the FJ Cruiser SUV, which is styled to resemble the classic FJ 40 from the 1960s. Positioned as a "lifestyle" vehicle with rear-hinged access doors, the FJ Cruiser is much closer to the Nissan XTerra than the Honda Element. Based on a slightly altered 4Runner platform, the FJ Cruiser is powered by the same 4.0L V-6, mated to a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. Available in 2WD and 4WD configurations, the FJ Cruiser is also equipped with comprehensive active safety enhancements such as: VSC (Vehicle Stability Control), TRAC (traction control), ABS, electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), and brake assist. 2WD models are equipped with an automatic limited-slip differential.

What Changed:

All-new product drawing inspiration from the original Land Cruiser. FJ Cruiser is based on a modified 4Runner platform. Power is provided by a 245hp V6. Available in 4x2 and 4x4.

Official Word:

"The FJ Cruiser effectively fills a gap in the Toyota lineup which was once our core heritage -- capable, affordable and durable vehicles that are youthful, fun-to-drive, aggressive and tough" -- Don Esmond, senior vice president and general manager, Toyota Division.
