Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept by TRD

Japanese specialists from Toyota have a lot of surprises prepared for the SEMA Show that will start on October 30th. One of the models they will present at the grand event this week is the FJ Cruiser Concept which was developed by TRD, the performance division of Toyota. The engineers tried to make it a great off-road model with a lot of capabilities. Who did they do it? Well, first the specialists transformed the suspension by using 60 mm Bilstein racing shocks on the front axle and 50 mm ones for the rear axle with remote reservoirs. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered 17-inch TRD Midnight Black bead lock-style wheels wrapped around in BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires.

Under the hood, the model features a Twin Vortex System and a large air-to-water intercooler. In the end, the new Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept is capable of producing 30% more horsepower reaching 345 horsepower and 340 lb. ft. of torque, representing a 25% improvement. The specialists also offered a new cat-back exhaust system. All the output is being transferred to the wheels, through a 5-speed electronically controlled automatic gearbox.

For the interior of the Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept the designers have provided specially made floor mats and the seatbacks received two-tone leather with FJ-S logos. On the outside, the new concept got front nudge bar and rock rails. At the SEMA Show, the new Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept will be presented together with other eight new and unique Toyota vehicles which will be displayed at in Central Hall starting this next Wednesday; so only in a few days more information will be available on the new Toyota FJ Cruiser Concept and more. Until then, please check out the small photo gallery prepared.
