Drive Wire: FJ Cruiser Ending Production in August

Sad news for Toyota fans today as the FJ Cruiser will finally end its production run this August worldwide.  The latter-day version of the legendary FJ40 hasn’t been available in the US market since 2014, but it soldiered on in other markets, notably Australia, where its utility and durability leant it an almost fanatic following. Not that US off-road fans didn’t appreciate it – soft-roaders may be the rule in the US but check the FJ Cruiser’s resale values if you don’t believe us. It seems that the trusty Jeep Wrangler is the lone cowboy in the truly hardcore go-anywhere class and we’ll soon see if the new redesigned Wrangler can carry that torch alone.
