Benefits of Driving a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser Sport Utility

The FJ Cruiser's quirky design's underpinnings are shared with Toyota's Tacoma pickup, and the FJ's performance on unpaved terrain does the brand proud. The 4.0L V6 can tow up to 5,000 pounds, and the utilitarian interior can accommodate five passengers and their gear.

What's new for 2012?

The 2012 FJ Cruiser is virtually unchanged from the previous year.

Model Strengths

  • Fun, distinctive design
  • true off-road capability

Model Review

The FJ Cruiser comes in three very similar trim levels: a rear-wheel drive with 5-speed automatic; a 4-wheel drive with 6-speed manual; and a 4-wheel drive and 5-speed automatic. All FJ Cruisers have a 4.0L V6 with variable valve timing, which produces 258 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque and allows the FJ to tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
