Toyota Might Build a True FJ Cruiser Successor After All

If they would only bring the 2018 land Cruiser 79
4.5D-4D V8 I will be a happy camper, simple and unbreakable.

Love this truck.

I LIKE THE PROs and CONs listing....

Pros & Cons
Pro - Canít kill it with an axe.
Con- Itís a truck, and it drives like one.

PRICE is the painful part of Toyota anymore, well any mfgr., but especially on the Land Cruiser series...

Modern FJ40 and FJ45 PLEASE, with removable top and doors.

If Jeep can do 13 models of the Wrangler, you can do four = 2 door and 4 door versions! Six if you add short and long box versions.

Use the minimalist approach & get back to the basics! Not everyone can afford a $150K ICON/TLC version, but we'd be willing to pay $30K-$50K.
I kinda would like a bigger box.... like a FJ43, 44, 46?.... but the FJ45 is hot toooo !

Re: Toyota Might Build a True FJ Cruiser Successor After All

That picture on the front page will appeal to all those people buying Jeep Renegades. Pointless stuff that makes you feel like an off roader and it can barely negotiate an inch of snow. There's no reason that Toyota can't build a legitimate competitor to a Jeep Wrangler but with better quality. I drive a FJ instead of a Jeep because it's actually made decent by a effective manufacturing process and it's significantly more reliable then a Wrangler. People like Jeeps so much that they can't get past it and really enjoy spending money on maintenance.

I drive the FJ over the jeep because a wrangler is as tough as a tin can

Re: Toyota Might Build a True FJ Cruiser Successor After All

Bring back the Iron Pig!

Honestly though. I hope the new FJ replacement has a hybrid power plant and some turbo magic. It won't be diseasel though.
I hope it has a bunch of plastic on the sides and the front to cut down on wind resistance and make it more fuel efficient - also some skinny HT tires.

Then I hope the plastic sh1te is easily removable, and proper bumpers and skids can be attached in their place. (they do this for the LC200 - a chin extension on the front and side skirts). No factory rack (but mounting points)
J150 chassis/running gear or next gen for parts compatibility.

It's all about CAFE folks - hybrid & petrol engines with turbos is the way its gonna be. removable plastic and pizza cutters to further improve economy for CAFE.
This is how Jeep does it - time for Toyota to play the game as well. Maybe some 5.7 supercharged monster edition for a laugh too ;-) - or better still - provide a conversion kit for a 5.7v8 or 4.5 V8 TD upgrade. Screw the Jeep hemi conversion - give me a 5.7 with a blower any day...
