sThe Toyota FJ Cruiser, which uniquely melds the brand’s off-road performance legacy with distinct heritage design in a modern SUV, rolls into 2013 with a new color scheme choice for the high-capability Trail Teams Special Edition. Even with its considerable off-road capability, the FJ Cruiser offers comfortable everyday usability and Toyota reliability.
The Trail Teams Special Edition Package incorporates a standard Off-Road Package and features a new color, Cement Grey, which replaces Radiant Red. With the optional Class Four receiver hitch, the FJ Cruiser can pull a trailer up to 4,700 pounds, enough to take the fun with it, such as a pair of watercraft, a powerboat, dirt bikes or even a racecar.
On pavement or off, the 2013 FJ Cruiser offers convenient audio and connectivity features. New for 2013, the FJ Cruiser gains standard power outside mirrors with illuminated markers, and a new Magma Red exterior color.
He 2013 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Special Edition sports a monotone Cement Grey exterior and projects a tough, slightly menacing look, accentuated by black bumpers, front grille and door handles. Matching Cement Grey accents on the door trim, steering wheel and fabric seat inserts complement the exterior styling.
The Trail Teams’ styling compliments its off-road capability. Under the hood, a cyclone pre-air cleaner (standard on all models) is effective at trapping sand and dirt, while being easy to clean. The Trail Teams package beefs up chassis performance with trail-tuned Bilstein® shock absorbers; rear differential lock and the Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) system; engine, fuel tank and transfer cases; skid plates; rock rails; plus Toyota Racing Development (TRD) alloy wheels and BF Goodrich 265/75R16 All-Terrain tires with wheel locks.
The Trail Teams Edition also preps the FJ Cruiser’s body and interior for serious off-road driving. The power-side mirrors feature Illumination markers, and the auto-dimming rear-view mirror integrates a backup-camera monitor. The water-resistant seats, rubber-type floor and rear deck make it easy to clean the “trail” out of the Trail Teams Edition, while 12V/120W and 120V/400W outlets enable the driver to keep “plugged in” to civilization when necessary. New TRD aluminum doorsill scuff plates stand up to wear and mud; and an aluminum shift knob and transfer case knob add to the rugged interior design.
In addition, the Trail Teams Edition comes ready for road and trail with a “floating ball” type multi-information display, remote keyless entry, cruise control, rear privacy glass and rear wiper. The final touch is a Trail Teams exterior badge.
