The FJ Cruiser started out as a concept vehicle first shown at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Two years later, at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota unveiled the final production version of the FJ, citing overwhelming response to the original concept vehicle. Designed at Calty Design Research in Newport Beach, Calif., the production FJ Cruiser remains extremely close to the concept.

Hey, someone who can actually see that video should send me the .wmv. I can't get it to open in any browser I have. Stupid windows.

Black roof with a window in it? That's a genius move. Perfect for summers in the Desert Southwest.

get on a list at a dealership before word hits the fan on these rigs. i thought i would wait, but im searching for the correct dealer in my neighborhood and im going to try to get a manual 6. have a renewed sense of urgency, what with all this new information coming out. I LOVE IT when there's floods of new info!!!

the next big piece of info is the release date - then i anticipate seeing a crapload of photos of happy fathers (and what, 3 mothers) with their new babies!!

Um...awesome is the only word I can think of. I like that black one. Perrty nice. And he says for a loaded 4x4 you won't pay more than high 20's....so it shouldn't hit 30 unless there's a dealer mark up. I am settin my alarm for 9 and I am gonna drive to my local dealers...I hope they know stuff. Weeee!!!

Where on the roof did you see a window??? I didn't see any windows you crazy bastard. You just want there to be one, so you imagined it.

I'm tellin ya...the roof has grooves in it for styling. There is no window or moonroof. And that first-person view on the top of the FJ isn't actually on the roof...it's on the hood. You can see the sprayers for the wiper fluid at the bottom of the screen.
