Re: What does 'FJ' mean?

Welcome and congrats on the new FJ. There are several threads about this topic. Some folks say it is for fake jeep or foreign jeep. Other opinions are for the body style and engine type.

Re: What does 'FJ' mean?

Yeah it's been posted a zillion times before. "F" is the Toyota designation for it's family of in-line, six-cylinder, gasoline engines in the the original Land Cruisers. "J" is the Land Cruiser frame and body style. It used to mean something in the FJ40, FJ60, FJ62, FJ80, etc. but now it is just marketing in the FJ Cruiser since it has a 1GR-FE engine not an F engine.

There is some detailed, and not so detailed, discussion on that here.

Toyota produced a light truck model called a 40 series. They came in an Fj and a Hj. The Fj being petrol and the hj being diesel. The "F" stands for the Type F Gasoline engine they switched to in 1954 from the original Type B. The "J" actually stands for jeep, which was a generic term for that style vehicle before it became a name brand. The first of its kind was the Toyota Jeep BJ, using the the Type B motor. Originally they were called Toyota Jeeps but when the started exporting them out of Japan Willy's got all bent and thats when they came up with Landcruiser. The two digits that began to follow the FJ are specifying the series. It went: FJ, FJ-40, FJ-55 and 56, FJ-60, FJ-70(never made it to the states), FJ-80, FJ-100, and the FJ-200

Yeah, interesting stuff. There are many threads on here about this and even more info on the web if you really want to get into the history of these awesome trucks!!!
