Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept

The Toyota FJ Cruiser (FJC) is a retro-style compact SUV by Toyota introduced as a concept at the 2003 Chicago Auto Show and in production form at the following North American International Auto Show. On sale in early 2006 as a 2007 model, it features styling reminiscent of the original FJ-series Land Cruisers from the 1960s (particularly the front fascia and wrap around rear windows) , but is based on the Hi-Lux platform also used by the modern 4Runner and Land Cruiser Prado. The FJ Cruiser is only sold in North America. The FJ cruiser was not originally intended for production but due to enormous consumer response about the car following the North American International Auto Show, production evidently began.

The FJ Cruiser primarily competes with the Nissan Xterra, Jeep Wrangler and the Hummer H3. Base pricing is between US$21,000 and US$23,000. At 183.9 inches in length, the FJ Cruiser is the longest compact SUV offered in North America, slotting between the smaller RAV4 (181.1 in. overall length; originally rumored to be replaced by the FJ Cruiser) and the mid-size Highlander (184.6 in. overall length). The addition of the FJ Cruiser adds a sixth SUV in Toyota's American lineup, meaning Toyota will have two compact SUVs (the RAV4 and FJ Cruiser), two mid-size SUVs (Highlander and 4Runner), and two full-size SUVs (Sequoia and Land Cruiser). One in each category is biased for on-road use, while the other caters to more off-road enthusiasts. It is also Toyota's only current vehicle to use the name TOYOTA spelled out across the grille instead of the corporate emblem, another nod to the classic FJ40.

Engine

4.0 L 1GR-FE DOHC V6 with VVT-i, rated at 239 hp (178 kW) at 5200 rpm, and 278 lb-ft (377 N·m) of torque at 2700 rpm
