What is everyone's thought on this new Jeep fighter. Looks pretty solid very intresting design very not toyota. It seems they gave it some testosterone as well (6sp MT or 5sp AT) 4.0L V6 with 239hp and 278Ft/lb's of TQ.

Im wondering why they choose a 2 door design though. It seems better off as a 4 door.

It's not really not Toyota, it actually sort of retro Toyota since alot of its design elements are based off the early FJ 45's

The similarities are in the white roof, front grille, fender flares, A pillar, and side rear view mirrors.

I think these are extremely ugly. My mom just got one and I hate them a little less but I am definately not a fan. It meets the practicality reasons she wanted so it makes sense for her and it drives pretty decently but I think the looks of it are aweful. I don't see why so many people seem to like them at all.

I saw the new FJ for the first time yesterday while driving to work... I had to take a second glance at it while I didn't even know toyota had a new vehicle on the market. The design does seem to represent the older models that were developed years ago... I'm just not a big fan of it, at least not right now. maybe i'll like the look later on, maybe not :goon:

That car is just plain lame looking.. I think Toyota is trying to do what Honda did with the ELEMENT. Keep in mind the element bombed. The one thing I like bout it that I don't have to see them round here much

Seems to me I am hearing only of women driving them. I think Toyota may have missed their target demo.

Haha the Vehicross! They even made a supercharged one... Sad, just sad!

The FJ Cruiser was based off of the FJ40s, which are awesome rigs, esp for off roading!

Personally, I would rather have the Cruiser then the Vehicross or the Aztec...
My parents bought an Aztec GT, the stereo system and interior is cool but besides that, it's nasty!

The 2 rigs on the left are both FJ40s... and the black one is just a yota pick up...
