Re: Second Generation FJ To Do List

I like just the way it is. I will mod it to meet my want's and needs as I see fit.
Now...
If Toyota were to bring back an early 70's model FJ40. I don't think they could build them fast enough to meet demand. No power windows, open top no A/C and running gear that would make a Jeep cry. And price it at thousands less than a Jeep. I didn't buy mine for the gas mileage. I bought it because it was different, cool and would take me to the places I like to go when I fish and hunt.

How about a bigger gas tank!!! I sold my MT mainly because I just couldn't stand the 'low fuel' light coming on after only 220 miles on a tank of gas. At a minimum Toyota needs to put in a 23-25 gallon tank ala 4Runner style. If I can't consistently get around 300-350 miles/tank on the next gen FJC, I will not be coming back. If they up the range, I'll be right back as my FJC was the best new vehicle I've owned in a long time...I just couldn't get past the all too often pit stops.
The size of the gas tank is my biggest issue but the Jeep wrangler tank is smaller at 18.6gal. 4-runner has a good size at 23gal. I think the Porsche Cayenne must have the largest tank at 26 gallons. That would be a great size for the FJ or better yet come out with one these new diesel engines that get such great fuel economy. If they some day want to sell this car in Europe it may happen.

Of course you are prepared to pay around USD$60,000 for this 2nd Gen FJ right?

Remember the rule of 3, you can have it faster, cheaper or better. When talking about engineering on this scale, for every increase in 'quality' such as MPG, options, etc. are going to increase the price dramatically and take years to arrive.

I agree. The original poster sounds like he wants a Range Rover. So go ahead and buy it but don't expect to pay 30k. The Toyota is what it is and I find some of the so called faults with it to be part of the charm. All I could really ask for is a more rugged interior because I know it will wear out quicker than the rest of the car.
