On the road, the FJ Cruiser is and nice to drive. The compact wheelbase makes it very and easy to park. Freeways kind to the FJ. Its shape messes the aerodynamics, making it more to side winds than passenger cars. The big mirrors, great for visibility, are very at speed.

The FJ wouldn’t be my first for a cross-country highway trip, but perfectly fine for everyday The 4.0 Liter V6 under the hood out 245 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque, so stoplight are spirited.

Off-road, the FJ really shows its I drove one with a 5-speed transmission and 4-wheel drive. On a challenging course outside of Springs, driving the FJ off-road at low was simple and intuitive. As long as I the wheels on top of the big rocks and didn’t the 9.6 inches of ground clearance, the torque got me over every without drama.

Serious off-roaders will at the FJ’s independent suspension, but the locking differential, traction and stability control, anti-lock with electronic brake and brake assist add up to a very package for light work off the

Bottom Line

If you love but you can’t afford to keep a vehicle for your passion, you your choices. You either an aggressively styled dirt-whomper as daily driver and live the rough noisy ride, or you and get a less-capable vehicle that’s on the road but can still take a in the dirt once in a while. The FJ the compromise with flair.

The benchmark vehicle in the class is the Wrangler. Priced very the Wrangler has 60 years of history, an aftermarket and serious off-road It also has some seriously old onboard, as well as a punishing ride.

If you’re looking for capability, not necessarily off-road but road – you might consider of the all-wheel drive alternatives the Honda Element, Ford and Land Rover Freelander. You get the great ground clearance of the FJ and Wrangler, but you’ll get a civilized drive.

As for me, I think I may have found my off-road vehicle once my Toyota 4Runner finally the dust in another 100,000 or so. Call me a poser, off-road I simply like knowing I can go off-road any time I want to – I don’t want to.
