Model Highlights

The 2014 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 that automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The FJ's 4.0L V6, the only engine available, 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 4-wheel drive 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 manual FJ Cruisers get a locking rear differential, which is optional on automatic FJs. Rear-wheel-drive versions receive a limited-slip rear differential, with the included electronic stability and traction control, to assure the surest footing possible.

The FJ Cruiser is a true truck, with tough 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 is rated 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. 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 lots of 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, available on 4-wheel drive FJs, adds various equipment that is of use to off-roaders, including Bilstein off-road shocks, TRD alloy wheels, 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, as well as 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 'Heritage Blue' paint scheme, with black bumpers and blacked-out grille and door handles.


Model News

For 2014, the FJ Cruiser is a carry-over into what will likely be its last year.


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. It comes with a 120V power outlet, aluminum sill plates, leather steering wheel and special off-road suspension with Bilstein shocks.

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.

Summary
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Toyota 4Runner, Tacoma, FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, RAV4, Scion FRS, and XB vehicles. The affected vehicles may have accessories installed by SET, such as running boards or other items, that were incorrectly installed.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014 FJ Cruiser vehicles equipped with an optional "Trail Teams Ultimate Edition" package, in which the front shock absorbers and springs were replaced at vehicle processing centers. In some of these vehicles the bolts which secure the front lower ball joint to the steering knuckle and/or the front suspension lower arm to the front cross member assemblies might have been tightened with insufficient torque when the front shock absorbers and springs were replaced during the installation process.

Consequence
In this condition, one or both bolts could become loose during driving and fall out. If both bolts fall out from the front lower ball joint or the front suspension lower arm, these components could detach from the steering knuckle or the front cross members, causing a loss of steering control, which could increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners of vehicles with the optional package installed, and dealers will inspect the torque of the bolts. If the bolts are found to be loose, dealers will retighten them to the proper torque. For any missing bolts, dealers will install new ones. The recall began on November 7, 2014. Owners may contact toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Dates of Manufacture

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.
