2007 toyota Land Cruiser: The FJ idea displayed at the Detroit show in 2003 varied dramatically from various other Toyota program autos, inning accordance with Toyota primary engineer Akio Nishimura. Generally, he says, Toyota reveal cars are developed with the concept that they could one day end up being production automobiles. But the FJ was a layout research study from Toyota's Calty Style Research center in California meant totally as a follow-up to Rod Millen's one-off Retro Cruiser (Upfront, November 1999).

The reaction was so positive the FJ was provided a thumbs-up for manufacturing as a 2007. It says something concerning Toyota's phenomenal stockpile of automobile systems that such a unique-looking product could reach market a plain 3 years and also modification later on as Toyota's "most capable off-road lorry."

Say thanks to the changed Land Cruiser Prado bases (likewise shared by the Toyota 4Runner and Lexus GX470) for that success, along with thoughtful style touches that assist in off-roading-among them brief method and separation overhangs, charitable ground clearance, and the chamfered sides at the vehicle's four corners.

Toyota's comprehensive experience with off-road products gives the FJ Cruiser with tried and tested mechanicals-a strong axle in the rear with suspension pickup points tucked well out of the way and also an unequal-length control-arm front end with similarly shielded coil-over springs and also shocks. A peek under the cars and truck exposes a clean sight between the wheels, with celebration plates put under the most susceptible elements.

The tractive effort for this cubic canyon crawler is offered by Toyota's 4.0-liter V-6, which generates 239 horsepower and-more important-a wide spread of torque (peaking at 278 pound-feet) thanks to a variable-valve-timing system. That's with 91-octane gas. You'll obtain less power on lower-octane gas if that's all you can locate in the boonies.

To put that valuable torque to function, Toyota provides 3 options. There's two-wheel drive for that difficult journey to Starbucks, a part-time four-wheel-drive system with a five-speed automatic transmission, and also a permanent four-wheel-drive system with a six-speed manual transmission. Naturally, the four-wheel-drive models have transfer situations for setting and array selection.

On manual-transmission models, which are also equipped with Torsen limited-slip center differentials, there's a lever-selected selection of high-range four-wheel drive, low-range 4x4, as well as low-range 4x4 with diff lock. The automatic-transmission car provides shift- on-the fly selection of two-wheel drive or high-range 4x4, however you'll have to stop to choose low-range four-wheel drive.

The front differentials are open-type units, as are the rears unless the purchaser selects the readily available switch-activated lockable back diff. Because situation, actuation disables a helpful system that Toyota calls energetic grip control, or A-TRAC, that is provided on all four-wheel-drive versions. Just like systems we have actually seen from various other SUV manufacturers, A-TRAC screens as well as controls wheelspin utilizing the ABS-like all traction-control systems-but this one will allow some wheelspin to obtain you from slippery scenarios. The two-wheel-drive designs obtain a limited-slip rear differential instead.

Utilizing the A-TRAC system to assault a tough off-road training course Toyota established on a ranch near Ojai, California, we were able to bargain some seriously cratered sections in addition to boulder-strewn uphill climbs with the FJ Cruiser's OE tires set at their roadgoing pressures. Taking into consideration the supply Bridgestone Duelers put on street-biased all-terrain step patterns, we were completely pleased.

As we were with the FJ Cruiser's polished street manners, apparent develop top quality, and remarkable convenience. Those self-destruction doors give easy access to the back seats, which supply excellent head and shoulder room as well as fold ahead in a 60/40 split to boost the cargo volume from 28 cubic feet to 67 cubic feet. Rear legroom isn't really exactly gargantuan, neither is the FJ's price. Toyota states you could get a well-appointed FJ Cruiser for $25,000, and that's an idea we can live with.
