The time has come for the FJ Cruiser to meet its maker, but before production ends, Toyota is set to build 2,500 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Editions as a final hurrah.
Revealed at the 2013 SEMA Show, the FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition is the most capable FJ ever according to Toyota. To help tackle the trails, the Ultimate Edition is fitted with TRD off-road suspension, Bilstein shocks and 66mm TRD race coil springs in the front that give the Ultimate Edition a flat stance. Out back, 50mm rear shocks are equipped with remote reservoirs to diminish damping fade.
A front skid plate with TRD embossed right into it is fitted to make the Ultimate Edition look tough and to improve the approach angle.
The wheels, which also come from TRD, are 16-inch BF Goodrich beadlock tires, while rock rails and a roof rack complete the exterior. Custom “Heritage Blue” paint also helps to differentiate this special edition, along with a white grille surround.
Interior appointments stay nearly the same as the standard FJ, offering a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a 115v power outlet and floating-ball multi-information display, though the Ultimate Edition gets a stainless steel dash plaque.
Power comes from the same 260-hp 4.0-liter V6 that powers every FJ Cruiser.
