Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night - nor sand, mud, streams or rocky terrain - will keep this off-road adventurer from traversing its intended path! Join us for this 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser review and discover the inner workings and outer audacity of this adventure-mobile.
A special FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition package is available for 2014 with an impressive set of trail-taming features. We find upgraded suspension, a reinforced skid plate and all-terrain tires for starters. Other features in this special edition include: active traction control and CRAWL Control; floating-ball display with inclinometer, compass and outside temperature; auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated backup camera display; 115V/400W AC power outlet; and TRD 16-in. off-road beadlock-style wheels.
Edmunds noted in their 2014 FJ Cruiser review: "Even in stock form, the FJ is quite capable of scaling rocky hillsides or frolicking in the sand dunes thanks to its high ground clearance, capable suspension and generous approach and departure angles." The FJ's engine, a powerful 260-horsepower V6 that delivers 271 pound-feet of torque, is paired with a 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). Standard independent high-mounted coil-spring double-wishbone front suspension with stabilizer bar and 4-link rear suspension with lateral rod, coil springs and stabilizer bar are key contributors to FJ Cruiser's success off-road. This same powerful engine and rich suspension make the FJ Cruiser a comfortably riding vehicle for daily use on highways or city streets.
The Toyota FJ Cruiser's standout appearance makes no apologies for its rugged capabilities, but boldly self-advertises its standing as a fully functioning SUV. Audacious round headlights and aggressive bumpers serve their important purposes, while inside you'll find materials that will hold up to heavy use and clean up easily. Have no fears about this SUV's resale value; the FJ Cruiser earned the top spot in KBB's 2014 Best Resale Value Award for a midsize SUV/crossover.
