How to drive the 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser offroad
The 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser isn’t just a funky looking 4×4, it’s also one of the best offroad too. But only if you know how to get the most from its technology.
LIKE ALL MODERN 4X4s, the Toyota FJ Cruiser is chock-full of features that can help you drive off the beaten path..if you know how to use them. We asked Dave Darmody of the Australian Offroad Academy to explain what’s what:
The two 4X4 modes are:
Low Range – as set of crawler gears, also driving all four wheels. Lower speed but increased torque (I like to describe torque as the “Rotational Capacity to Climb”), making steep hills less of an obstacle and delivering greater precision to the driver. To move into low range stop, select neutral, move the selector lever to 4Lo, wait for the dash light to indicate 4Lo and you’re away. Slowly.
