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 2011
A new Trails Team Special Edition model includes an Army Green exterior paint job and  black bumpers, front grille and door handles. An off-road package is standard on this model, and other upgrades include a rearview camera integrated into the rearview mirror, illumination markers for the side mirrors, a multi-information display and unique exterior badging. Also new for 2011 are a standard locking rear differential, what Toyota says is improved visibility and rear-seat access. Finally, there is standard iPod connection to go along with standard satellite radio.

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 belt line and short windows bear more resemblance to a Hummer than to the FJ40's tall cab. Exterior features include:

  • Windshield has three wipers
  • Rear-hinged access doors facilitate backseat entry
  • Rear swing gate with spare tire
  • 17-inch wheels
  • Available off-road package with 16-inch wheels, which accommodate higher sidewalls and more cushioning from the tires

A rectangular, trucklike dashboard incorporates a prominent square panel with stereo and climate controls. An optional gauge cluster that sits above the middle air vents can display a compass, outside temperature and vehicle pitch readouts. Door inserts and dashboard panels can be matched to the FJ Cruiser's exterior color. Exterior features include:

  • 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. Mechanical features include:

  • 260-hp V-6 with 271pounds-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
  • Standard locking rear differential
  • 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 the top score of Good 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. Safety features include:

  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags
