Re: FJ Cruiser being discontinued????

According to the TRD guy I spoke with at SEMA last week, the Fj is one and done.

Of course A2A could get his wish:

Re: FJ Cruiser being discontinued????

The next gen FJ will have four real doors, and be more rugged towards off road than the current one.

Another popular SUV will be dropped from the lineup, many are going to cry over that one.

And gee, is this about the 100th thread now on this subject?

Re: FJ Cruiser being discontinued????

I just saw the 2010 model launch/production schedule last week, my Toyota regional dealer rep had it. The FJ was on it.

I even suggested that it may be built at the new Hino plant in WV in subsequent years and he had never even heard of the plant in WV.

An inside source that I am not allowed to reveal his/her name.
Sorry, I can not divulge the infos source.
The info could change with time, but I am pretty sure it is going to pan out.
Just wait and see.

The SUV that could be dropped is a very popular one too, and has been around a long time.
That should tell you which one, and not, it is not the Land Cruiser.
That will always be with us.

But for the FJ Cruiser to live on is great news.

Re: FJ Cruiser being discontinued????

They're gonna skip a model year on Sequoia, and go straight to the 2010s early next year.

Re: FJ Cruiser being discontinued????

Interesting stuff Rover!

And with gas probably close to half as much as it was, that will have some ramifications.

I rented a Highlander last week and though the looks are heinous, it had a surprising ton of space inside and was a good drive.

Corey thinks it will be more offroad-focused. Yeah I think Toyota was caught by surprise to see how hard the FJ ended up being wheeled. Going through three rear ends kind of tipped me off to that.
