Toyota announced they are dropping the FJ Cruiser, their Hummer-wannabe SUV, and as a send-off, they’ve prepared this FJ Trail Teams Ultimate Edition model. They are still going to build 2,500 units of this ultimate edition, but after that the FJ will be no more.
Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition pays tribute to the FJ40 of 1960s with a unique white painted front grille surround and newly developed “Heritage Blue” paint. It also gets bespoke TRD off-road suspension with Bilstein race shocks that give the car greater off-road capabilities.
Other notable TRD goodies fitted as standard to the FJ Ultimate include a front skid plate, made from one-quarter-inch thick aluminum plate, 16-inch bead lock wheels with BF Goodrich A/T KO tires, rock rails and roof rack.
The Ultimate Edition FJ Cruiser is only available in 4×4 and comes standard with Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) with off switch and electronically controlled locking rear differential. Inside, you get a stainless steel FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition dash plaque to remind the occupants this is one special FJ.
Toyota FJ Cruiser was a silly car. And it’s always the silly cars that are the most fun. It is going to be missed.
