Oh so you herd it from a salesman ? Never mind it's not going to happen. They don't know squat about future production vehicles .

x2 I've found they hardly know squat about what vehicles they have in their own lot let alone a future production.

I've been thinking about this for a few days now, and have come to the conclusion that yes, while there have been many created before it, this is without a doubt the most rediculous thread ever created by anyone on this forum, or any other forum like it.

I find it deserving of ridicule that you even put a few days thought into it....

So, with no future FJs on the horizon, what would be a suitable alternative, from the current offerings of vehicles, when it comes time to replace a wonderful, reliable, go-everywhere, cannot-be-rebuilt 2007 FJ?

My preference is for something equally fun, capable and reliable.

Toyota Forerunner? Jeep Wrangler? ???

At 95,000 miles, I don't anticipate needing to replace it anytime soon (despite the numerous offers I receive to sell it).

going to have to say currently the 4Runner TRD Pro would fit my bill.

I just don't need the extra room. :cheers:

The US sales numbers in goodcarbadcar.net speak volumes; after a two and a half year "excitement" phase, where Toyota sold 138,000 FJ's, the sales fell off a cliff, dropping to a meager 13K year until this year. Meanwhile, back at the ranch:

Year Jeep Wrangler Jeep Wrangler
U.S.*Sales Canadian*Sales
2006 80,271 5090
2007 119,243 9834
2008 84,615 12,137
2009 82,044 7271
2010 94,310 11,062
2011 122,460 15,636
2012 141,669 18,996
2013 155,502 18,578
2014 YTD * 147,733 19,987

Year Toyota FJ Cruiser Toyota FJ Cruiser
U.S.*Sales Canadian*Sales
2006 56,225 4919
2007 55,170 4901
2008 28,668 2630
2009 11,941 899
2010 14,959 797
2011 13,541 639
2012 13,656 726
2013 13,131 656
2014 YTD * 13,602 602

In other words, Jeep sells about as many Wranglers PER YEAR, as Toyota sold FJ cruisers over a nine year period! And that is just counting the Wrangler, NOT the Jeep totals per year.

Hummer couldn't unseat Jeep, Toyota can't unseat Jeep, and it's just throwing good money after bad to even try. Don't think there will be an FJ III if the number crunchers have a say on it in Tokyo.

But that's ok, because I am left with a genuine off-road go anywhere vehicle with the production figures of a Rolls-Royce and the reliability of a Rolex. Now out of production and headed towards unobtanium status. Not too shabby.:grin
that is excellent news for FJ owners.. which would you rather have 1 of a gazillion, or 1 of a million.... I'll take the later.. :)
