The Toyota FJ Cruiser was a beloved SUV that offered drivers a retro style and off-road capability. Despite its age, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) dealers continue to receive orders for new units, and the assembly of the SUV is still ongoing. While the 16-year-old FJ Cruiser is staying for the time being, Toyota could have given us an idea of a spiritual successor with an electric powertrain. Toyota made some mistakes when creating the FJ Cruiser, such as reducing cabin costs and not offering a reversing camera.
However, they tried to correct these problems by changing the hinge mechanisms on the front seats to facilitate entry and exit from the rear. A press release released by Toyota earlier this week confirms that the FJ Cruiser is still in production. At that time, Toyota decided to start marketing its TRD Pro Series and its classic 4Runners with similar appeal and capacity. While the Bronco will be very popular, even if Toyota only sold 10,000 to 20,000 of them, the components and development paid off years ago.
However, excitement and capacity endure with adventure-ready Toyota vehicles, such as the 4Runner and the all-terrain TRD Pro Series. Many automotive journalists appreciated the fact that Toyota dared to sell such an aggressive vehicle with such an aggressive purpose, since the rest of the company's range was rather bland and conservative. Many of the vehicle designs and parts were inspired by or adapted to the Tacoma and 4Runner, other popular Toyota vehicles.
