The end of the road for the Toyota FJ Cruiser has been ever approaching. In 2014 the reputable off-roader was phased out from the United States and now the Japanese manufacturer is about to stop production of the FJ Cruiser altogether.
However, before it does, the FJ Cruiser Final Edition will roll out exclusively in Japan. The last of these quirky 4x4s will only come in beige, with this colour theme continued on the inside to contrast with the largely black interior.
The Final Edition model gets exclusive side steps and 20-inch alloy wheels and under the hood is the familiar 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission delivering power to both axles.
Toyota says its target is to sell 200 units a month, although it hasn’t divulged the number that it will produce. The brand has also confirmed that there are no plans to bring out a direct successor, although it did introduce the FT-4X earlier this year at the New York Auto Show, as a futuristic concept based on the FJ Cruiser.
At the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show, Toyota has on display an updated version of the Land Cruiser Prado, together with the Hilux ‘Invincible 50’ special edition to mark the bakkie’s 50th anniversary.
