The Toyota FJ Cruiser was a unique vehicle that was designed to be a basic, capable and affordable all-terrain vehicle. It was ideal for those who wanted a retro-optimized vehicle for off-road and off-road adventures. The FJ Cruiser had a higher towing capacity than other SUVs, capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds. However, it had some drawbacks such as large blind spots due to its design, smaller than average load capacity and rear seats that were difficult to access.
Toyota recently announced that the FJ Cruiser will be discontinued and replaced with the 'Final Edition' which will come in a single-tone beige exterior, upholstery and details on the central panel. Despite this, Toyota has revealed an electric SUV concept called Compact Cruiser EV that features an FJ-inspired style as a preview of a possible future production vehicle. The Toyota FJ Cruiser was a great vehicle for those who wanted to explore off-road adventures. It was reliable and rugged enough to withstand harsh conditions.
Although it is being discontinued, it will still be remembered as one of the most iconic off-road vehicles of its time.
