The FJ Cruiser is a mid-sized SUV produced by Toyota since its introduction in 2006. The FJ Cruiser is often noted for having retro styling in homage to the Toyota Land Cruiser J40 which was on the market for 41 years.
The FJ Cruiser is a 5-door SUV with suicide doors for the back seat passengers. It came in both rear-wheel and four-wheel-drive configurations.
Other models in Toyota’s SUV lineup include the Toyota 4Runner and Toyota Land Cruiser, both of which are considered competitors to the FJ Cruiser. The FJ Cruiser has faced stiff competition from the Jeep Wrangler since its release.
Powertrains for this model have been limited to only a 4-liter 1GR-FE DOHC V6. Certain models also came fitted with a supercharger for increased performance, particularly the special edition FJ Cruisers.
Transmission options for the FJ Cruiser include a 5-speed automatic and a 6-speed 4WD manual depending on the model and year.
The Toyota Racing Development team released a limited production of Special Edition FJ Cruisers with increased performance specs. Similarly, there has been a Trail Teams Special Edition, and ARB Edition FJ Crawler.
These variations included larger, 16-inch alloy wheels, high-quality shocks, and a number of other similar improvements to increase off-road capability.
The last generation of the FJ Cruiser went on sale in 2017, being called the “Final Edition.” Sales were then discontinued in the majority of the global market at the beginning of 2018.
Because all FJ Cruisers were fitted with a 4-liter engine, towing capacities remained relatively similar throughout. Most FJ Cruisers were given a towing capacity of 2250 kg / ~ 4,960 lbs maximum.
