Toyota Confirms Toyota FJ Cruiser’s Demise with ‘Final Edition’ Model
Toyota has a flurry of activities right now for its home market of Japan. Aside from reintroducing the Hilux brand after a 13-year hiatus and the debut of the updated and redesigned Land Cruiser Prado last September 12, the Japanese carmaker has revealed that it will finally cease the production of the retro-style Toyota FJ Cruiser midsize SUV via a “Final Edition” model.
Set to go on sale in local dealerships on October 16, the “Final Edition” FJ Cruiser will sport a beige color theme for its exterior, seat upholstery, and the center cluster trim. To provide contrast, black coating has also been used extensively for both the interior and exterior, and with special 20-inch aluminum wheels and side steps completing the package.
Since the Toyota FJ Cruiser “Final Edition” will only be sold in Japan, the only way you could get one is to import a unit creatively and buy a local-unit FJ Cruiser and turn it into a donor car to convert the Japanese Domestic Market model into a road-legal unit for the Philippine roads. Good luck!
