Re: Toyota Releases 2013 Pricing For FJ Cruiser and Four Other Truck Models
Thanks for the report.
"This is a serious truck with a very tough, powerful, heavy and hence fuel-thirsty four-wheel drive system."
This drives me angry whenever I read something ridiculous like this. "hence fuel-thirsty" is definitely not the way to describe the new 4Runner.
The new 1GR-FE engine Moves the 4Runner faster than a Jeep Grand Cherokee V6, yet bests the Grand Cherokee in city fuel economy. EPA rating for the 4Runner is 17 MPG city, as opposed to the Grand Cherokee's 16 MPG, despite the body-on-frame setup, slightly heavier, and despite the larger and torquier engine. But when you here them describe the GC, they PRAISE it for its good fuel economy. What's going on?
