2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The big news is this year’s cool FJ Cruiser special edition: it features Army Green paint (body and roof), with matching seat inserts; black trim and grille; Bilstein shocks; locking rear differential; active traction control; and new 10-speaker audio system. There’s also a new Off-Road package, which includes many of the mechanical features of the special edition. This replaces the All-Terrain package.
The Land Cruiser by Toyota has changed in terms of its luxury, its style, and it has become more popular than ever. This led to the creation of the FJ Cruiser, a peppier and more aggressive configuration of the Land Cruiser. The FJ Cruiser stems from the 4Runner platform, albeit with some alterations. Its styling is retro however, and this may not appeal to some.
The FJ Cruiser 2011 model comes with the DOHC 4.6 Liter V-6 churning out 259 horsepower. This is joined to the five speed or the six speed manual tranny. The FJ Cruiser is offered with full time rear wheel or four wheel drive too. The FJ Cruiser is offered with a list of niceties as well. It comes with a 2WD variant married to an automatic tranny; the latter of which is great for commuters because it offers decent fuel efficiency. It can get 17/22 mpg. For off road options, the 4WD offering is ideal. There is even a special model with improved off road handling offered as well. This vehicle unifies fun with function.
The FJ Cruiser is the modern representation of the wildly popular FJ models from the 1950s through 1980s. It uses rounded lines and is much larger than the original, but it serves as a character-filled tribute to the original. There are plenty of standard features on the FJ Cruiser: power windows and door locks, water-resistant seats, air conditioning, and tilt steering wheel. Six-speaker audio is now standard and there are now steering-wheel audio and Bluetooth controls.
The FJ Cruiser is available with active traction control, a locking rear differential, and Bilstein shocks. It has plenty of ground clearance, and a solid rear axle contributes to the FJ’s excellent off-road capability. On-road, the 4.0L V-6 is relatively stout and torque is impressive; the five-speed automatic is intuitive. The last time we tested the FJ, it was before the 19-horsepower increase it received in 2010. Even so, it moved to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds.
The FJ Cruiser has driver and passenger front airbags, dual front seat-mounted side airbags, and roll-sensing two-row side curtain airbags are standard. Also standard are four-wheel ABS with brake assist and brake-force distribution, traction and stability control, and brake override with 5A.
