Pros

Uncompromised off-road ability; rugged and retro looks; strong powertrains; all-weather traction; distinctive Trail Teams Edition


Model Highlights

The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser comes in a single trim level, with choice between rear-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive. Rear-wheel-drive versions come only with a 5-speed automatic transmission, while 4-wheel-drive versions can be equipped with either that or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The V6 makes 260 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, with the dual independent variable valve timing allowing strong low-rev torque for off-roading exploits. Manual-transmission versions with 4-wheel drive get a system that distributes 60 percent of power to the rear wheels under most conditions but can be locked to a 50/50 split. With the automatic transmission there's a separate part-time 4WD system--allowing better gas mileage when you're commuting or driving on the highway in clear conditions. Both versions include a separate low range for low-speed rock crawling, and all manual versions get a locking rear differential while that's optional with the automatic. Rear-wheel-drive versions get a limited-slip rear differential to help, with the included electronic stability and traction control, get the surest footing possible.

The FJ Cruiser is a true truck, with body-on-frame construction and a boxed steel ladder-braced frame. A 4-link coil-spring rear suspension with solid axle and a double-wishbone front suspension, together 4-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic power rack-and-pinion steering altogether provide maneuverability and relatively responsive handling on the road, combined with some of the strongest off-road ability in a stock SUV.

Altogether, the FJ with its standard tires has 9.6 inches of ground clearance plus approach (34 degrees) and departure (31 degrees) angles. Towing capacity rates up to 4,700 pounds.

The FJ Cruiser doesn't completely forgo comfort. With an 8-way-adjustable driver's seat, most will be able to get comfortable in front and have a good view out. And in back, a 60/40-split rear seatback with removable bottom cushions can be folded to a nearly flat cargo floor. In the cargo area there are cargo-net hooks, bag hooks, and cargo tie-down points.

Standard features on the FJ Cruiser include air conditioning, power windows, locks, and mirrors, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, a rear defogger and a 6-speaker sound system with USB port, iPod interface and Bluetooth streaming audio.

The special Trail Teams Edition, slotting between SR5 and Limited models, in 4WD only, adds various exterior and interior equipment that's of use to off-roaders, such as special Bilstein off-road shocks, TRD alloy wheels, all-terrain tires, a rear differential lock in combination with the A-TRAC traction system, additional skid plates, rock rails, illuminated side-marker lamps, an AC outlet and a backup camera monitor (part of the auto-dimming rearview mirror), as well as a 'floating ball' multi-information display, TRD aluminum doorsill scuff plates and an aluminum shift knob. From the outside, the model is easy to pick out from the crowd, thanks to its new Cement Gray paint scheme, with black bumpers and blacked-out grille and door handles.


Model News

For 2013, the FJ Cruiser is essentially carry-over, although the Trail Teams Special Edition is now offered in a Cement Gray exterior color, in place of last year's Radiant Red. For the rest of the lineup this year, the FJ Cruiser gets new power outside mirrors with illuminated markers--as a standard feature--and there'a a new Magma Red exterior color.


Value Writeup

The FJ doesn't try to fit in as a family vehicle, or sacrifice some off-road ability in the name of comfort; its singular focus is ruggedness and trail prowess--and it really looks the part, with its retro-fashionable design harking back to the 1960s-era FJ40 trucks. The FJ's tough, body-on-frame construction means that a few bangs or dents from boulders won't get in the way, while a rugged, straightforward interior design, with water-resistant seats and a rubberized floor, really fits the purpose.

Those looking to get not only the most rugged off-road ability but also a more fashion-forward urban look will want to get the Trail Teams Edition

Summary
Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 FJ Cruiser vehicles manufactured January 25, 2006 through February 23, 2013 and equipped with a Toyota Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits mounted to the front bumper. These lamp assemblies include 55 watt bulbs and due to this wattage and mounting angle, the combination of the upper beam headlamps plus the auxiliary lamps are too bright and exceed the maximum light output allowed for an upper beam headlamp. Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."

Consequence
Light intensities above the maximum allowable limit could cause increased glare for oncoming traffic and increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the 55 watt bulbs with 35 watt bulbs, free of charge. The recall began on June 6, 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Component
SEAT BELTS

Potential Number of Units Affected
209,000

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2013 FJ Cruiser passenger vehicles. The retractors for the front driver and passenger seat belts are mounted in the access door (rear door) panels of the vehicle. Due to insufficient strength of the access door panel, cracks may develop in the panel if the access door is repeatedly and forcefully closed over an extended period of time.

Consequence
If cracks occur in the panel around the lower retractor anchor, the seat belt retractor could become detached, which could increase the risk of injury to an occupant in the event of a crash.

The safety recall began on June 6, 2013. Toyota will mail an interim letter to owners late in April 2013. Remedy notifications to the owners for the repair will begin in late May 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."

Consequence
If the spare tire is inflated to the incorrect pressure provided on the placard, tire failure may occur while it is being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash.

For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Rating

Rollover Rating Dynamic Test Result
No Tip

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
