Just wondering what everyone here thinks about the new FJ Cruiser. :D







Check out Toyota's official FJ website, really cool videos and animated features pages:

There is even a forum out there for the FJ Cruiser:

Being a fan of old school Land Cruisers and Land Rovers, this new Toyota definitely gets my attention. Possibly an upgrade from my RAV4 in a few years. :D I was definitely planning on getting a Tacoma double cab, but now I don't know.

What does everyone else think about the new FJ Cruiser? Any rants or raves are welcome. :D

I like it, and I have even been thinking about getting one. The thing that I like the most about it is the manual transmission, which is usually the deal maker/breaker for any other vehicle I look at.

Do like it, I bet any money that this one will go down a storm in Australia., they do like their Landcruisers out there. Somehow can,t see it selling heaps in the UK.

You are quite right about that! I think it is an off-roading thing. :lol: Not sure if there is much off-roading in the U.K., but then again you guys have Land Rover/ Range Rovers to choose from. :D

Sign me up! I like it alot but the "Element" like suicide doors are not my thing. I could get in alot more trouble off-road in that! Someday I may pick up a used one for the fun of it as my trail-buddy. Old School styling brings me to think of the Land Rovers and Toyota Land Cruiser's that really were made to work.

Nice Ride! M. 8)

The only way that will happen at this time is if someone steals it or totals it; whichever comes first. :lol:

I thought I liked them based on the early pics. Having now seen them up close and personal, and sat in one, I think they're great. I wish I had been able to sit in the driver's seat (I sat in the front passenger seat), but there were too many people in line!!! VERY popular at the Auto Show! Hopefully my dealer will have one on the floor I can sit in sometime when I go up for an oil change. As Kelly says, very cool looking! 8) And everyone knows I'm a sucker for a manual. Just one thing though, watch out for those silver things that stick out from the front bumper, I think they're gonna be flying all over the highways unless they secure them better. At the auto show one popped off way too easily in a guy's hand.
