Toyota farewells the FJ Cruiser with beige Final Edition variant

Toyota Japan has farewelled the FJ Cruiser with a beige ‘Final Edition’ variant that will go on-sale in October.

THE TOYOTA FJ CRUISER was designed for the US market and intended to be a modern take on the original FJ LandCruiser… we can see the link. It launched in Australia in 2011 and left the local market in 2016 after selling more than 11,000 units.

While 4×4 enthusiasts in Australia lamented it wasn’t available with a turbo-diesel engine there was no doubting its ability off-road. When the FJ Cruiser was cancelled from Australia last year, Toyota Australia’s executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said, “The FJ rides into the sunset as a vehicle renowned for its ability to traverse rugged outback trails while offering plenty of utility for all types of activities and being equally well-suited for everyday driving.

“It will leave lasting memories as one of the most iconic vehicles in Toyota’s rich SUV history, helping to bring renewed energy to the Toyota brand,” he said.

Final Edition FJ Cruiser

And now the FJ Cruiser is going out of production for good with Toyota Japan farewelling it with a special edition variant called the ‘Final Edition’. As you can see from the images its finished in a beige paint job which pays homage to the original FJ’s colour palette and which is carried through into the interior. It also gets bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels, bumper mounted lights and black door handles.

This Final Edition FJ Cruiser will only be available in Japan and will go on-sale in October with Toyota Japan hoping to shift around 200 of them each month.

    Long live the memory of a Tonka Toy Style 4WD as a rugged off road vehicle. Shame about the lack of Diesel option.

    A pitty Toyota is dumping this icon.There is a reason why Toyota is no longer the no 1 manufacturer.
