Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Teams UE 01

Toyota is signing off its funky FJ Cruiser with a Trail Teams Ultimate Edition – announced at the ongoing SEMA show in Las Vegas, the limited production cycle of 2,500 units will bring the curtain down on the FJ after an eight-year run, in which more that 200,000 examples have been sold.

The FJ TT Ultimate Edition pays tribute to its inspiration, the iconic Land Cruiser FJ40 of the 1960’s, through a colour scheme – the vehicle wears a new exterior shade called “Heritage Blue” and a white painted front grille surround as a homage.

The edition, available only in 4×4 form, features Toyota Racing Development bits, led by an off-road suspension specifically developed and tuned for the vehicle. The system includes TRD Bilstein race shocks with increased damping, articulation and high speed stability – the 66 mm front assemblies get new TRD race coil springs that raise the FJ’s front, while the 50 mm rear units are equipped with remote reservoirs to decrease damping fade.

Also on, a new TRD front skid aluminium plate as well as TRD 16-inch bead lock wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich A/T KO tires, with rock rails and a roof rack completing the exterior dress up job. No other mechanical revisions are mentioned, and so the 4.0 1GR-FE V6 powertrain continues on unchanged for the vehicle’s final run.
