With the release of the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, it has been denied that various issues previously mentioned that Toyota will ‘turn off’ the FJ Cruiser SUV which is the successor to the legendary Toyota FJ40 SUV. The position and role of FJ Cruiser for Toyota can be said to be equivalent to Wrangler for Jeep. In many ways the two mainstay SUVs of Jeep and Toyota do have something in common. The relatively simple, compact and solid design is one of the similarities between the Toyota FJ Cruiser 2014 and the Jeep Wrangler. Both want to show that these cars are genuine SUVs specifically designed to conquer heavy terrain, not cars for dandy. The same philosophy is still maintained by Toyota when designing the Toyota FJ Cruiser 2014.
Not only on the outside design, cabin part too. While the cars – SUV ‘beautiful’ competing each other to offer a comfortable cabin and futuristic design dashboard, 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser appear simple austere. Comfort factor is not necessarily removed just like that, it is still possible to find air conditioning and audio systems but do not expect much about its luxury. Surely all these features work properly and efficiently.
Since the goal is to support heavy field work, all instruments on the dashboard are designed to be operated with gloved hands. Similarly, carpets without any element of luxury so that drivers and passengers whose shoes hit the mud not to worry, because it will not pollute the Toyota FJ Cruiser cabin. Funny thing is Toyota is still trying to show that 2014Toyota FJ Cruiser is the true successor of the legend of Toyota FJ40 in a very impractical way. For those who are familiar with the FJ40 would still remember how the rear door of the SUV can only be opened from the outside and not from within. Toyota still retains the concept in the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, so passengers seated in the rear cabin are heavily dependent on the front passenger or driver to unlock and close the door when going out or getting into the car.
