what do we think of the new FJ Cruzer?

Recommended Posts

These were in Lebanon when I was there in 2009 they look cool but when you see them up close I thought it looked a bit small especially compared to some of the other 4wds going around.

got to hop in one and go for a drive when a rep dropped one off at work for a look. Surprisingly roomy inside and they go pretty well with a V6 under the hood. It sits on a 120 series prado chassis so its fairly capable offroad even with independent front suspension and because its a Prado chassis a 1KD diesel should slot in very easily.

It kind of looks like Toyota tried to make their own take on a Hummer.

 

Saw 2 around Adelaide now (Blue and an off Yellow one) and don't like how they look at all.

The front end and those big ass indicators kills it, all too rounded

Stock = average.

Modified = tough.

now that i look again, yes it does. solid axle swap wouldn't be hard. like i said, they are a prado chassis. That means things like the solid axle hilux kit that a company produces using 80 series gear is only 6k as a kit, and would bolt right on :)

If those 70 series came with coils all round in the ute, I'd be selling my maverick for one. They are the bees knees of cars. Fcken lv them. Taken 2 to loveday now

coils in the back of a ute are no good as they reduce the load capacity, the 70 series are comercial vehicals even though the 79 troopie has rear passenger doors now.

My ute is coil, stil carrys more then enough and is a lot friendlier to drive on the road then any of my previous utes. Plus a set of airbags will fix any ride height issues when loaded

Exactly. Like I said if Toyota bought the 70 series out with coils all round I'd heavily consider buying one now
