Toyota's FJ Cruiser enjoys a substantial audience of off-road aficionados with a constant craving for new variations on the popular 4x4. Toyota's performance arm, TRD, is obliging them once again with a fresh take on a Baja-themed off-roader scheduled to debut on Oct. 30 at the 2012 SEMA Show.

2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser TRD-Tuned Concept
'TRD's work on high-performance off-road variants of Toyota vehicles goes back a number of years,' said Keith Dahl, Toyota's national manager of engagement marketing and motorsports. 'The FJ-S is a great example of their off-road expertise.'


2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser TRD-Tuned Concept
TRD took the unusual step of upgrading the chassis/body structure for more serious off-road duty through the addition of an underbody 'exoskeleton.' The extra stiffness and strength creates a more suitable platform for the suspension modifications and wheel/tire upgrades.

The front suspension uses 60-mm Bilstein® racing shocks that provide a 1.3-inch lift, and 50-mm Bilstein® racing shocks with remote reservoirs in the rear. Sturdy 17-inch TRD Midnight Black beadlock-style wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires give the FJ a go-anywhere persona.


The FJ's 4.0-liter V6 engine gets the full TRD supercharger treatment with the Twin Vortex System (TVS) and a large air-to-water intercooler. The net effect is a 30 percent increase in horsepower to 345, and a torque peak of 340 lb.-ft at 3,500 rpm, a 25 percent improvement. A custom cat-back exhaust gives aural clues to the FJ's increased urge.

The exterior of the FJ-S is enhanced with a front nudge bar and rock rails, and the interior gets a two-tone leather seat treatment with FJ-S logos on the seatbacks and custom floor mats.

The FJ-S can be seen along with eight other new and unique custom-built Toyota vehicles in the Toyota display booth #24801 in Central Hall at the 2012 SEMA Show starting October 30.
