Revived in 2007, the Toyota FJ Cruiser offered a compact and modern SUV with an attractive entry-level price tag and plenty of options to choose from. Standard side curtain airbags and updates to upper trim levels marked the only changes for 2008. Roll-sensing side curtain airbags, active front-seat headrest and updates to options rounded out the changes for 2009. A beefed-up engine with more horsepower and better gas mileage was the big change for 2010.
An updated audio system, roomier and more accessible rear seating and folding rear headrests were the big changes for 2011. No major updates were in store for model years 2012-2013. In 2014, the last year of production, a limited, Ultimate Edition model was unveiled to woo in loyalists buyers for one last hoorah.
