2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser Review

In 1983, the reign of the popular FJ Cruiser was brought to an end. It is resurrected for this model year, and Toyota has innovated quite a bit on the original FJ40 Land Cruiser (The #8220;F#8221; originally stood for Toyota#8217;s F-type engine), though some design elements remain in the 2007 model.

The silhouette of the machine is largely unchanged; the FJ Cruiser#8217;s round inset headlights, a pinched-together front end, wrap-around rear side windows, a white roof cap, rear-mounted tire and off center license plate mount, and a nearly vertical front windshield are all elements from the progenitor of this line. The FJ is receiving acclaim from excited off-roaders already. Dubbed by Forbes magazine as #8220;the Mini Cooper of SUVs,#8221; the FJ#8217;s retro, almost cartoonish styling is making waves and drawing praise in the automobile industry.

What#8217;s New For 2007:

With the side note that the FJ has been out of production for 23 years (old FJs are considered a collector#8217;s item; many of the rugged machines are still on the road and mechanically sound), the changes for the 2007 model year are numerous. New features unavailable on the FJ at its discontinuation include electronic stability control, CD player, 60/40 rear folding seats, water resistant upholstery, optional GPS system, and a new 4-liter 239 hp engine. The new FJ#8217;s wheelbase has been pared down to 105.9.

What is the Predicted Reliability:

The original FJ developed an almost cultish following #8211; a customer base so loyal they continued to sing the praises of this trail-worthy line long after its discontinuation. They were elated to see its return, and all signs point to a similarly reliable and rugged FJ in 2007. Long term reliability is impossible to know, but so far, we#8217;ve encountered glowing reviews from new FJ owners.

Reliability in the old FJ and the high driver satisfaction of the new FJ are especially notable given that it is designed and often used in rigorous off-road conditions that would leave a lesser rig in shambles. The Toyota name is one of historic reliability, and if one considers the old FJ#8217;s popularity and reliability with Toyota#8217;s current reputation, it seems likely that the FJ will be durable. The FJ#8217;s basic warranty lasts for three years or 36,000 miles.
