Toyota's history of building off-road capable SUVs goes back to the FJ40 and Land Cruiser models. Toyota's FJ Cruiser was created on that long heritage and continues to be part of a dying breed of vehicles that are more at home on the trail than the paved road.
Toyota has teamed up with Trail Teams to create the 2012 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Special Edition. The special edition FJ Cruiser comes exclusively in a red exterior with black painted door handles, bumpers and front grille. To improve visibility at night, a pair of off-road lights sit on top of the FJ Cruiser.
The FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Special Edition is powered by a standard 260 horsepower 4.0L V6 engine that gets an extra air filter to trap more dirt. To make it even more capable once the road ends, the special edition FJ Cruiser gets Bilstein shocks, TRD wheels mated to BFG All-Terrain tires, rock rails and skid plates for the engine, fuel tank and transfer case. The FJ Cruiser also gets a standard rear differential lock and Toyota's A-TRAC traction control system.
