2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Matt Tierney

Even though the FJ Cruiser is a stale model in Toyota's lineup, it's still fun to slap on a new package that appeals to the off-road enthusiast crowd. This particular FJ is wearing the Trail Teams Special Edition package ($6695 mind you), which consists mainly of exterior features like: unique Sandstorm paint, blacked-out hood, sideview mirrors, and grille. But my favorite is the black, beadlock-look wheels with beefy BFGoodrich all-terrain rubber. It really sets it apart from other FJs on the road-or trail more like it. The package also comes with a locking rear differential, backup camera integrated into the rearview mirror, and Bilstein shock absorbers.

Where I'd like to see improvement is under the hood; the 4.0-liter V-6 is old news. If nothing else, at least a cold-air intake and free-flow exhaust system included in the Trail Teams package would transform this FJ into a real player when the pavement ends.
