The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser has actually restricted allure for travelers and households, but for off-roaders it’s an all-star. The wacky looks hark back to the FJ Toyotas of the Sixties, yet it’s also much more prepared to roar than that: the FJ Cruiser makes no nod to street performance, to comfort, or practicality that supersedes trail-blazing.
Toyota has actually announced that 2014 will certainly be the FJ Cruiser’s last year on sale.
Toyota is supplying an unique Ultimate Edition of the off-road-themed Trail Teams plan. Just 2,500 will certainly be built, and all will certainly have a Heritage Blue paint work with a color-matched roofing. Functional equipment on the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition features an upgraded TRD-tuned suspension, 16-inch bead-lock tires, all-terrain tires and a thicker front skid plate. In addition, the majority of the things in the Convenience and Upgrade packages are basic on this model. Or else, the FJ Cruiser is unmodified.
The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser is a five-passenger midsize SUV with couple of typical (front-hinged) front doors and two half-sized, rear-hinged doors.
The FJ Cruiser is supplied in just one trim level and comes requirement with 17-inch steel tires, an online regulated securing back differential (manual-transmission 4WD designs only), a limited-slip rear differential (2WD designs only), full power accessories, air-conditioning, an eight-way by hand modifiable driver seat, four-way manually adjustable guest seat, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, a tilt-only steering wheel, waterproof fabric furniture, sturdy vinyl flooring, Bluetooth phone and audio connection, and a six-speaker stereo with a CD gamer, satellite radio, a complementary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.
A lot of alternatives are bundled in packages. The Convenience bundle adds rear personal privacy glass, a back wiper, a beerbelly cover, keyless access, boat trip control, a rearview video camera and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Upgrade plan adds 17-inch alloy tires, updated traction control on four-wheel-drive models, rear car parking sensing units, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, supplementary gauges and travel computer system functions, and an 11-speaker JBL sound system with a six-CD changer.
The Off-Road plan adds Bilstein cushion, the securing back differential (for automatic-transmission models), an upgraded off-road-oriented traction control device (called A-TRAC) and additional instrumentation (including an inclinometer and compass). Various other alternatives consist of 16-inch alloy wheels with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires, upgraded Bilstein shock absorbers, larger brakes and a performance exhaust kit.
The Trail Teams Ultimate Edition bundle arrives later in the model year and will feature a specially tuned TRD suspension (with remote reservoirs for the back shock absorbers), 16-inch bead-lock tires (better for aired-down tires throughout off-roading), all-terrain tires and an updated front skid plate that supplies better security. All Trail Teams FJ Cruisers acquire a Heritage Blue paint task (with a matching blue roofing system) and consist of the bulk of the material from the Convenience and Upgrade package deals.

Standard security features on the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser include antilock disc brakes, traction and security control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and energetic front head restraints.
The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser sports a no-frills interior decoration with a touch of design. Certain dashboard panels are color-matched to the outside physical body color. Controls are well positioned and easy to use, though some buttons and knobs are comically significant.
The front seats supply good comfort, and the water-repellent upholstery and rubber flooring covering are ready for the type of abuse active proprietors might inflict upon them when the FJ is utilized as meant.
