Initially a hot grey market piece, the Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) recognized the demand and brought the FJ cruiser to our soil on 2013. Intimidating, boxy with rounded corners and tough, the 4x4 FJ Cruiser maintains the aesthetic principles of its predecessors while receiving technological updates of today. It’s ready for the road whether paved or not.
Inside is a mix of modern flair with old school touches, most apparent in the center console. A wireless door lock, multi-info display, and accessory power outlet give it the modern touch. Other features include airbags, ABS, vehicle stability control, and vehicle immobilizer.
With a wading depth of around 700mm, good ground clearance, and superb off-road abilities, the FJ Cruiser can surely rival against some of the equally rugged names in the 4x4 off-roading realm. It’s powered by a 4.0L 24-valve DOHC Dual VVTi V6 engine roaring with 268 hp and 380 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.
