The 2013 FJ Cruiser is the choice of manly men. It is the perfect combination of trail toughness and modern conveniences. It has no qualms of appearing as a sensible family car nor does it pretend to be decadently luxurious. Make no mistakes, this is pure adventure vehicle. The market of trail drivers might be limited but the 2013 FJ Cruiser singlehandedly takes over the adventure enthusiasts. ’13 FJ Cruiser has the 1960′s vibe – but is updated with a cooler appeal. Hummer might come to your mind though it apparently ate the Cruiser’s dust.
The interior is intentionally rough – with body-colored panels, simple gauges, and sturdy switchgear. The exterior, not to be outdone, is fashionable and stylish at the same time. You can take the 2013 FJ Cruiser from a trail adventure and head to a party – and not get ostracized.
This vehicle comes in 4×2 or 4×4 and is powered by a 260-hp , 4.0 liter V-6 engine with 272 lb-ft torque and provides a strong performance from the start. This is true for both five-speed automatic and six-speed manual. Manueverability is not top of the line but the trail performance makes up for that slight disadvantage.
What lies under the hood is a beauty. It is equipped with a cyclone pre-air cleaner the effectively traps sand and dirt. Better chassis performance is also highlighted by the trail-tuned Bilstein shock absorbers, rear differential lock with Active atraction Control system, engine, fuel tank, and transfer cases, skid plates, and rock rails. The exterior gets 16-inch Toyota Racing Development wheels mated to 265/75ZR16 All-Terrain tires from BF Goodrich.
