Power and Performance

The new FJ Cruiser is built on a rugged ladder-frame platform, shared with models like the 4Runner, Land Cruiser J250, GX, and Tacoma. It’s a nod to the classic Land Cruisers with a retro and boxy design, making it both stylish and functional.

Under the hood, the FJ Cruiser comes with a 2 TRF engine—the same reliable four-cylinder engine that powers the Tacoma. It produces 161 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Despite the modest numbers, this engine is quite capable, offering a towing capacity of 3500 lbs and a fuel efficiency of 22 MPG.

For those wanting more, Toyota is likely to offer a hybrid version. The hybrid engine, known as the i-Force MAX, combines a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, producing 326 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts better fuel efficiency, with an estimated 27 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.

Design and Features

The FJ Cruiser is designed to handle any terrain while offering a smooth ride and the versatility that drivers expect. Its size is comparable to the Corolla Cross, placing it in the popular market of small adventure vehicles.

Toyota has aimed to make the FJ Cruiser the most affordable Land Cruiser ever. It combines durability and reliability with a modern design. The SUV is perfect for both city driving and off-road adventures.

Inside, don’t expect high-tech displays and luxurious features—this is a budget-friendly vehicle. The interior is basic, with knobs and dials instead of touchscreens. However, this simplicity adds to its charm and functionality, especially for those who prefer a straightforward, no-nonsense vehicle.

Price and Release Date

Toyota plans to reveal the 2025 FJ Cruiser lineup in November, with some sources suggesting an earlier summer announcement. The starting price in Japan is expected to be between 3 million and 3.8 million yen, roughly $20,000 to $25,500. However, after dealership markups, the price in the U.S. is likely to start around $30,000 and could go up to $40,000.
