If we talk about the Toyota FJ cruiser then it will not be wrong to say that this is the coolest looking four wheels off-road vehicle. Toyota Company is already famous for the production of roads cars that are more competent and durable so does Toyota FJ cruiser. This car didn’t have too many modern luxuries but was still the best choice as off-road. There are many good and bad aspects that will be discussed further in its design, engine, comfort security parts.
Exterior, Interior Design:
This FJ Cruiser is an SUV car that has many distinctive colors on its exterior; because of its color scheme, this car has made many fans. The exterior of the car is made using fully galvanized steel panels that give more support to its body structure, as though it looks like a two-door car but in reality, it is a four-door car, you can open the rear two doors of the car from inside in easy words rear two doors of the car are dependent on front doors to be open. The front of the car made impressive that clearly defines that it is a powerful car. Ground clearance is 228 mm that lets you drive this car on any road no matter how many ups and downs are there. Inside of FJ cruiser, there are not so many modern technologies or luxuries but still this got enough for you, it has a beautiful-looking dashboard that has the same color as the body of the car. Button or dials given on dashboard are quite big, there is also present a touch screen for navigation that is quite small than expected and make little difficult interaction. The front seats of the FJ cruiser are quite comfortable with respect to the rear one that has less legroom so if you are thinking to use rear seats on a long trip then I will suggest it’s not a good idea. On the rear side of the car, there is a 5th door for the luggage area, luggage is made using durable plastic so you can fit anything inside it as though it didn’t have enough space as expected from the off-road drive but if you need more you can fold rear seats of car that will make enough room for your luggage. On the rear down to the body, there has been used plastic that helps you to save your drive from scratches on body, bumpers, and roof of FJ cruiser paint using different colors that increase its attractiveness little more.
Engine & Power:
Off-road cars require an off-road engine that generates enough power to take you anywhere wherever you want. This Toyota FJ cruiser has a powerful 4.0 L engine with 6 inline cylinders and 16 VVT-I valves. It is a gasoline engine that has the capacity to produce 260 horsepower and 271 Nm @ 44oo Rpm peak torque. The company claims that it gives 17 miles/gallon in the city and 21 on the highway but it gives around about 16 combine. One cool thing about it has 71 liters fuel tank capacity that can make you travel at least 150+ kilometers without refilling. This car is available in both Manual and automatic but mostly production is done using 5-speed automatic transmissions. It has rack-pinion hydraulic pump power steering that is relatively light and makes it easy to handle on off roads. The top speed of the FJ cruiser 2016 is 111 miles per hour and according to tests, this SUV reaches 0 to 60 in just 7.3 seconds.
Comfort & Safety:
This is a comfortable car leaving rear seats, on the front, there is a present lot of space it has a cup holder, glove compartment, and also another storage compartment on the front of the driver. There has been given adjustable front center armrest and rear armrest that can be used instead of the middle seat that gives little comfort to rear sitting passengers. On off-road drives; ingredients for entertainment are important that’s why this FJ Cruiser 2016 has high-tech stereo, 6 speakers, and hands-free music phone capability. To make it a little advance there is also given music streaming via Bluetooth wireless technology whose controls are integrated on steering wheels. Off-road cars security is also an important factor because there are more chances to stick in a bad accident or something that, for handling such conditions Toyota FJ cruiser 2016 has airbags, seat belts, ABS driveline traction control, and electronic stability control. At the end of the discussion, one cool thing that I like most is that this car has a rearview camera whose display is embedded in the rearview mirror that gives you a more clear display of the rear side. Don’t forget to share your reviews, comments, and something more that you know about the Toyota FJ cruiser 2016.
