While the FJ40 is a two-door, the FJ Cruiser features four. The rear doors are on the small side to help preserve the illusion of a modern-day two-door FJ40. To help ingress and egress, the car does without the usual pillar between the two sets of doors, and the rear doors are hinged backwards.
Available in a single specification, the FJ Cruiser's sole engine is a 4-litre V6 with 200kW of power and 380Nm of torque. No diesel is available as the FJ Cruiser was initially developed with the US in mind.
