Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

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.
Exterior 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.
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.
Interior 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.
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.
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
Safety 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
