Toyota FJ Cruiser
Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc. MSRP for the 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser sport utility vehicle (SUV), and the Highlander and Highlander Hybrid SUV.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser carries over virtually unchanged for 2012. It will have an MSRP ranging from $25,990 for the 4×2 equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission to $27,580 for the 4×4 V6 automatic reflecting an increase of $200, or 0.7 percent.

The MSRP for the 2011 Land Cruiser has increased to $69,120 reflecting an increase of $200, or 0.3 percent.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser gained a more powerful and more efficient engine for the 2010 model year, along with a change to regular-grade fuel to help reduce operating costs. The DOHC 4.0-liter V6 engine is equipped with dual independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i — variable phasing for both the intake and exhaust cams) and produces 260 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of peak torque. The broad torque curve facilitates easy cruising on or off-road. The Toyota FJ Cruiser meets the stringent LEV II/Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions certification.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser 4×4 offers a choice between a six-speed manual transmission and an electronically shifted five-speed automatic transmission; the 4×2 model is equipped exclusively with the five-speed automatic. The automatic transmission varies the shifting pattern based on road conditions and driver input. A Flex Lock-Up feature allows the clutch in the torque converter to maintain a half-engaged position, enhancing fuel efficiency and increasing the lock-up clutch’s operational range.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser’s two-speed transfer case provides a 2.566 low range. With the manual transmission, the transfer case uses a TORSENĀ® limited-slip center differential with a locking feature and distributes the engine’s power 40:60 under most driving conditions. The TORSEN unit varies power distribution as needed, based on steering angle and wheel slippage. In the Lock position, the differential switches to 50:50 power distribution.

The 4×4 Toyota FJ Cruiser with the automatic-transmission employs a part-time four-wheel drive system with a 3.727:1 rear differential ratio and provides a 33.76:1 crawl ratio. With the manual transmission, the front and rear differential ratio is a lower 3.909:1 for a crawl ratio of 41.84:1, an attribute that helped the FJ Cruiser traverse California’s famed Rubicon Trail.

Prices for 2012 FJ Cruiser will begin with the start of August production.
