FJ Cruiser is Retro, Refined
October 16, 2006
Filed under Trailer News
Both refined and retro, Toyota’s new FJ Cruiser takes its styling cues
from Land Cruisers of the past, but ergonomics and amenities definitely
come from the present.
With a maximum tow rating of 5,000 pounds and a payload of 1,325,
the Cruiser is no poser. Power is provided by a variable-valve-timing
version of Toyota’s proven 4.0-liter V-6, which is rated 239 hp and 278
lb-ft of torque and requires premium fuel. Choose from a six-speed
manual gearbox or five-speed automatic; four-wheel drive is optional.
Hidden rear swing-out doors offer access to the rear seats for a total
of five passengers.
Base price is $23,905, with typical equipment expect around $28,000-$29,000.
