Here today, gone in 2014. FJ Cruiser crawls into sunset.





Not unlike the hot hatches and rods that appear at the SEMA shows annually, Toyota designed a tribute to what will be the final model year of its FJ Cruiser in the 2014 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition.

The FJ Cruiser pays homage to Toyota’s FJ40 Land Cruiser from the 1960s.

Toyota said the 2014 model year will be the last for FJ with limited production, building only 2,500 models.

Ultimate Edition

TRD Bilstein Shocks

TRD Bilstein Shocks

performance upgrades, including a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) off-road suspension that includes TRD Bilstein race shocks with increased damping, articulation and high speed stability. The front shock assemblies are 66mm with new TRD race coil springs, raising the front of the FJ just enough to level out the stance and improve the approach angle. The 50mm rear shocks are equipped with remote reservoirs to decrease damping fade.

Other upgrades include:

  • A TRD front skid plate, made from ¼” aluminum plate
  • TRD 16-inch bead lock wheels with BF Goodrich A/T KO tires
  • rock rails and roof rack complete the exterior


The Ultimate Edition FJ Cruiser is only available in 4×4. Standard fare includes:

  • Active Traction Control (A-TRAC)
  • Crawl Control (CRAWL available with automatic transmission only)
  • Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) with off switch, elec. controlled locking rear differential
  • Toyota Star Safety System

Farewell to an Icon

Chiseled from nearly a half-century tradition of tough off-road performance provided by the legendary FJ40, the original 4Runner, and 4×4 compact pickups, the FJ Cruiser was developed as a basic, capable and affordable off-roader aimed specifically at serious off-roaders looking to push the limits. Hailed by consumers and critics alike, the FJ Cruiser became an instant classic.

The final model year 2014 FJ Cruiser is on sale now. The Trail Teams Ultimate Edition is scheduled to roll into dealerships in February 2014, kicking off a fond farewell to a Toyota original.

With sales of more than 200,000 units sold since 2006, the FJ rides into the sunset leaving lasting memories of one of the most iconic vehicles in Toyota’s rich SUV history.
