I saw this in at the Houston Auto Show around 04 or 05.Haha your file names give it away- Mercedes! Haha
See if you can dig up pics of the 2015 Bronco prototype. That's the one :lol:
x2 I've found they hardly know squat about what vehicles they have in their own lot let alone a future production.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 .
I find it deserving of ridicule that you even put a few days thought into it....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.
^So, with no future FJs on the horizon, what would be a suitable alternative
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..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:

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
