New 2019 Toyota FJ Cruiser Review
Such “bright” cars like the Toyota FJ Cruiser are rarely found in the automotive world – they can be listed on the fingers of one hand. That’s why the “slim calculation” of Toyota Corporation, which offered such an unusual car to customers, is especially impressive.
The uniqueness of the Toyota FJ Cruiser is that the appearance of this SUV combines “futurism” (serial “cubism in contrasting colors and on large wheels”, and in conceptual guise it looked like “lunokhod”) and “retro style”.
But the eccentricity of this car is not limited to the design … on closer examination the “three-door concept” of the body, in fact, turns out to be five-door – the rear “half-doors” are hinged and do not have a central stand (they open only together with the front ones).
All the details of the interior, despite the “stylization” and “cheap appearance”, in fact have excellent ergonomics and are created using high-tech materials – the secret lies in the statement of Toyota engineers that the salon “FJ Cruiser” can be safely washed with water (here what modern materials and technologies mean, multiplied by practicality: water-repellent fabric of seats, waterproof appliances and fully rubberized floor). On a practically vertical dashboard there is everything you need for a modern car (and even more). Above the central square panel, where the control buttons for climate control and radio tape recorder are located, there are three round devices that will be appreciated by car lovers: compass, roll angle sensor and external temperature sensor.
Toyota FJ Cruiser equipped with a single power unit: aluminum petrol engine V6 in volume of 4.0 liters (1GR-FE VVT-i) initially had a capacity of 239 hp, and after modernization it became 20 hp. more powerful and a little more economical..
