The Toyota FJ Cruiser is exactly what you’d want in a multipurpose vehicle. It has a 4.0-Liter V6 engine, automatic transmission on the 4×2 AT model, 4WD options available as listed, a comfortable interior, and the ability to go through water of up to 28 inches deep without affecting the engine.
Did I lose any of you yet? If so, you’re a lot more like Amy than you think. When I start talking numbers and features, she starts to glaze over a bit.
That’s okay. But here’s something that you might think about before you next vehicle purchase.
The Toyota FJ Cruiser
If you were involved in the recent Colorado floods, or something similar, the advantages of being relatively waterproof and able to use 4 wheel drive with the optional active traction control would have made the difference between reaching your home and not being able to navigate slippery, wet mountain roads. Whenever you live in an area with weather and terrain challenges such as the possibility of deep mud, snow that clogs roads, few or no roads, steep hills or mountains, you’ll appreciate the Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Many people have the impression that the entire United States has become ‘civilized’ without challenges for survival. Examine the mountain areas of Wyoming, the Sand Hills of Nebraska, the plains and Badlands of South Dakota, and the illusion of civilization leaves. This vehicle is made for those areas and even more.
I can still see a buddy of mine, laying on the top of his FJ Cruiser with his spotting scope, scouting out buffalo near the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona. If that’s not a tribute to the versatility of the FJ, I don’t know what is.
There are a number of special offers available to help you with your purchase of this beast. If you own one already, I’m preaching to the choir here. Let’s hear what you think about your off-road machine!
