FJ Cruiser Production Ending Soon

Toyota may have stopped selling them in North America a few years ago, but sales continued in Japan until now. Before they kill of the FJ Cruiser for good, Toyota will a "Final Edition" FJ Cruiser for the Japan market only. I'm probably salty, but that's not fair and I want one too.

Quote:
The FJ Final Edition will feature a unique beige paint, beige interior, 20-inch wheels, bumper-mounted lights, black door handles, a 4.0-liter V6 engine, and a five-speed automatic transmission.

Well that's not fair...Was it from a lack of sales in NA and that's why Toyota ended sales here but not in Japan?

I can bet it was due to poor sales because the FJ cruiser has been on the market for a while now and when that is the case sales taper off. People who really like these end up buying them used because certain year models are better than others, or they want to do a build or one of many things.

This is it, the last FJ Cruisers to roll of the assembly line. Sad to see it go and there has been other FJ specials over the years, including a TRD performance version and more off-road capable variants.

I wouldn't be sad just yet because for all we know the new TJ and new Land Cruiser could bring some impressive off-road products to Toyota's line up, even more so that right now the current CEO is the most focused on getting back to what Toyota always did best on.

Hopefully Toyota decides to go through with the TJ Cruiser, we still have no word on that. And land cruisers are just too large for my needs.

I just hope both of them share enough DNA because Land Cruisers often get a lot of high end off-road tech, getting what's the result of scaling back on that will serve the TJ well. Tokyo Motor Show is next month so that will be the moment of true.

Connecting LC and TJ DNA will serve them well in sales.

What platform is the Land Cruiser sitting on and can it be shrunken to accommodate the TJ Cruiser?

Not sure, but it is the best selling off-roader in 10 countries and if the TJ sits on the same platform, it too will have some amazing real-world off-roading capabilities and be pretty bulletproof.

Land Cruiser seems too big to be sharing a platform with anything else but if its a true next generation model then maybe we might be seeing something that relates to the TJ. I will be waiting for that information to drop.
