2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.1 12
$ 17,554-30,514
September 30, 2009
Vehicle Overview
Toyota's retro-styled FJ Cruiser SUV re-creates some of the 1958 FJ40's original charm. With seating for five passengers, the FJ competes with similar off-road themed SUVs, like the Nissan Xterra and Jeep Wrangler.

New for 2010
The 4.0-liter V-6 gets variable valve timing and roller rocker arms, resulting in 20 horsepower more for a total of 259 hp. Toyota now recommends regular gas instead of premium for the V-6. A new Special Editon model comes with off-road gear like Bilstein shock absorbers, a differential lock, skid plates and BFGoodrich all-terrain tires, plus several convenience amenities and a Sandstorm paint color.

The FJ Cruiser sports boxy styling and a dirt-friendly interior. The front styling is a throwback to the original FJ40, as are the FJ Cruiser's white roof and wraparound rear-quarter windows. Other elements are not so faithful: A high beltline and short windows bear more resemblance to a Hummer than to the FJ40's tall cab.
  • Windshield includes three wipers
  • Rear-hinged access doors facilitate backseat entry
  • Rear swing gate with spare tire
  • 17-inch steel wheels
  • Available 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Available off-road package with 16-inch wheels, which accommodate higher sidewalls and more cushioning from the tires
  • Available Special Edition model with exclusive Sandstorm paint, Trail Team badge and TRD alloy wheels.

A rectangular, truck-like dashboard incorporates a prominent square panel with stereo and climate controls. A compass, outside temperature display and vehicle pitch readouts are available in an optional gauge cluster that sits above the middle air vents. Door inserts and dashboard panels can be matched to the FJ Cruiser's exterior color.
  • Air conditioning
  • Power windows and locks
  • Six-speaker CD stereo
  • Water-resistant seat fabric
  • Folding 60/40-split backseat
  • Optional power mirrors and a six-CD changer

Under the Hood
FJ Cruisers are available in rear- and four-wheel-drive configurations; they all use the same 4.0-liter V-6 engine.
  • 259-hp V-6 with 278 pounds-feet of torque
  • Two-wheel-drive FJ Cruiser gets five-speed automatic transmission
  • Four-wheel-drive models get either the automatic or a six-speed manual
  • 4WD includes a two-speed transfer case with a 2.57:1 low-range ratio
  • Skid plates, mud guards and tow hooks
  • Off-road package adds Bilstein shock absorbers and a special locking rear differential that communicates and cooperates with the brake-based traction control
  • 5,000-pound towing capacity

The FJ earned Good results in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests. There is a roll-sensing feature that works with the side curtain airbags to deploy them in the event of a rollover. There are also standard active front head restraints; they move forward in a rear-end collision to restrict head movement.
  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags
