Isn't it a successor of the FJ Cruiser? Just smaller and not as off-road capable, because it really doesn't resemble any other model from Toyota's lineup. At the very least it's the successor in name only.
I see what you did there, well played Sir.
Most would not even consider the FJ Cruiser to be the successor to the original FJ 40, myself included. It shares way more styling queues and off road prowess with the original than the TJ does with the FJ Cruiser. That being said, the original FJ 40 Land Cruiser and the FJ Cruiser are both FJ's and from the same class. The TJ Cruiser and the FJ Cruiser are both Cruisers but only one of them is an FJ. No matter how hard we all try to hope and pray the TJ will be the next FJ it will not be.
