FJ CRUISER CHANGES THE RULES

Welcome the Land Cruiser FJ Cruiser. A Land Cruiser in all respects, but in the rough and hardened Land Cruiser family he’d be the one to arrive home late with a new tattoo.

The Land Cruiser FJ Cruiser is a very recent introduction to the right hand drive catalogue of Land Cruiser products and South Africa is very proud to have secured this unique Toyota vehicle. With its unconventional design, including classic “Toyota” badge, white roof and singular round head lights, the FJ is an icon in the making which clearly shares the DNA with both the original FJ40 and the Land Cruiser range, hence the name FJ Cruiser.

In combining the iconic FJ and Land Cruiser brands, it is the ideal product to remind everyone of the 60 year heritage that has proudly lead to the range of go-anywhere and do-anything Land Cruisers available today.

UNIQUE AND DISTINCTIVE DESIGN LANGUAGE

Unique and distinctive are two overused words in modern automotive press releases, but one can be forgiven for using them in this context. The FJ Cruiser has been designed to be unashamedly reminiscent of the original FJ40and several classic FJ traits have been carried over into the new model.

Seen from the front it is clear that the FJ Cruiser borrowed the straight mesh grille, single round head lights, straight cut and high mounted bumper and high mounted air intake directly from its forebear. You will notice an upright mounted windscreen – similar to that of grandpa – and the distinctive white roof. The windscreen is serviced by no less than three short throw windscreen wipers for excellent visibility in wet and muddy conditions.
