Question 2012 Radiant Red FJ Cruiser

I just bought a 2012 FJ Cruiser in Radiant Red but it doesn't have the Trails Edition Badges but when I pulled the VIN and decoded the invoice it had the Off-Road Package, Convenience Package 17" Alloy Wheels and Spare , Roof Rack and the Z1 Preferred package but it's not showing that it's a Trails Edition and the steering wheel and seats aren't accented in Red so I am guessing it is not a Trails Edition? My Question would be if it has the Off Road package wouldn't it be a Trails Edition? I was under the assumption that the Radiant Red color option only went to the Trails Edition. Just picked it up for $28,900 59K miles and lifted, big rims and body armor bumper with winch. Also has additional fog lamps and really nice SmittyBilt 2 Step Nerf running boards. I guess my question is about the Radiant Red Color option. The more digging I do, just seems like the original owner did a custom order? Not sure.. Just curious on the boards thoughts.

What country are you in? For the north American market the 2012 Trail Teams was the only vehicle that used radiant red color but I know other countries like Australia had the color available as just a standard FJ withwhatever package it was ordered with. Sounds also like it may just be an FJ someone has painted radiant red if you happen to be in North America, which is a possibility. If there are no badges or color matched interior seats, trim, or steering wheel it is definitely not a 2012 TT.

Was it advertised as a TT or did you assume it was?

Re: 2012 Radiant Red FJ Cruiser

I believe that red was a non TT color available in Japan and the UAE. But I'm right only 45% of the time.

I ran the vin through Toyota and even had a local Toyota dealer decode my vin and this was the port or factory installed equipment and the exterior was Radiant Red (3L5) so it came from the factory not a repaint, Toyota rep said good chance the buyer did a custom built and request.

Re: 2012 Radiant Red FJ Cruiser

That sucks. I know I would feel kinda heartbroken if I thought I was buying a limited edition 1 of 2,500, only to figure out it was something else.

Hopefully you can find solace in the fact you do have a red FJ, and those in itself are very rare. And yeah, post up some pictures!

Past: 2007 Black Diamond FJC - totaled
Present: 2012 Trail Team Edition Radiant Red
