When did they stop making toyota cruisers?

In the summer of 2004, Toyota began conducting extensive off-road evaluations of the FJ platform driving development mules on many of North America's most difficult trails, including Moab, Utah, the Los Angeles National Forest, the Mojave Desert and the Rubicon Trail. Therefore, to add uniqueness to the final version of the Trail Teams Special Edition, Toyota designated the final version as the Trail Teams Ultimate Edition, which includes some special improvements.

In the summer of 2004, Toyota began conducting extensive off-road evaluations of the FJ platform driving development mules on many of North America's most difficult trails, including Moab, Utah, the Los Angeles National Forest, the Mojave Desert and the Rubicon Trail. Therefore, to add uniqueness to the final version of the Trail Teams Special Edition, Toyota designated the final version as the Trail Teams Ultimate Edition, which includes some special improvements. Toyota tried to correct these problems by offering a reversing camera and changing the hinge mechanisms on the front seats to facilitate entry and exit from the rear. We first heard rumors about the Land Cruiser's disappearance in the United States more than a year ago, when several Toyota sources hinted to MotorTrend that the Land Cruiser was in trouble.

Critics appreciated Toyota's drive to bring such an aggressive, purpose-built vehicle to the market at a time when the company was focusing on more conservative designs. 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. The FJ Cruiser also had the name Toyota written on the grille instead of the corporate emblem that has been used since 1990, another reference to the FJ40 and other older Toyota trucks. The FJ Cruiser was intended to be Toyota's opportunity to create an off-road vehicle different from the standard fare they were producing at the time.

Danzer secretly worked with Akio Toyoda to set up a special workshop at the NUMMI plant to test the viability of a new FJ40 by combining Tacoma shoring with the bodies of the Toyota Bandeirantes, a vehicle based on the FJ40, which was still in production in Brazil (only as a diesel model) at the time; Bandeirante was discontinued in 2001.It is true that Toyota took some restraints when creating the FJ Cruiser, allowing the competition to brag that its vehicles were not reducing costs. Not much information has been released about changes to the chassis and body structure, and Toyota hasn't announced what it plans to do with the FJ-S Cruiser Concept in the future. The bumps and cracks in the interior fenders were attributed to a Toyota design defect through certain vehicle identification numbers. But despite the FJ's growing status as a collector's item, that strategy doesn't seem to be aimed at Toyota with our Land Cruiser.

Toyota released a statement saying that the FJ Cruiser “was developed as a basic, capable and affordable all-terrain vehicle aimed specifically at serious off-roaders looking to push the limits. Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) dealers continue to receive orders for new units, even including them on their website, although increased demand and increased limited supply have ensured a significant increase in prices. With the pending departure of the Land Cruiser, it seems that Toyota will stick with the equally outdated Sequoia with less off-road capacity, as its most expensive SUV.
