FJ Cruiser shown in Cavalry Blue with available Upgrade Package and available accessory roof rack and rock rails.
Call it street cred. Minus the street.
Legendary reputations dont come easily. The FJ Cruisers path to respect began one summer
day sixty years ago when its predecessor, then called the BJ, ventured up the vast slope of
Mt. Fuji and accomplished something no other vehicle in history had, climbing to the spot
known as Checkpoint No. 6. This event marked more than simply the triumph of one vehicle
over one arduous challenge. It heralded the emergence of Land Cruiser as an off-road icon.
Today, more than four million Land Cruisers later, its heir, the FJ Cruiser, embodies all the
rugged capabilities that those early Toyota SUVs became known for — and more. The 2013
Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Solitude. Silence. Space. For some, nothing lifts
the spirit quite like a visit to remote wilderness.
The 2013 FJ Cruiser was engineered with precisely
those people in mind.
The off-road driving shown in this brochure was done in areas open to 4WD vehicles. Always be cautious and responsible when
operating a vehicle in wildlands and backcountry areas.

Mother Nature, whos your daddy now?
Twenty-five-degree grades. Frame-bending boulders. Dizzying drop-offs. The sort of challenges
nature presents when you tackle trails like Rubicon or Moabs Poison Spider Mesa. But five
decades of off-road experience has given FJ Cruiser the capability to handle them. Its V6
engine churns out 260 hp and 271 lb.-ft. of torque, in part thanks to Dual Independent
Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). The available 6-speed manual transmission
features a 2-speed transfer case as well as an electronically controlled locking rear differential,
to help ensure the power goes where its needed. The independent front suspension system
delivers nearly eight inches of wheel travel, while the 4-link rear suspension with lateral
rod provides more than nine inches. And rock-solid body-on-frame construction keeps the
FJ rigid regardless of the terrain.
Its no surprise a vehicle like FJ is able to reach the trails end in one piece. But FJ Cruiser
also handles pavement with equal proficiency. Its Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)1 adjusts
engine power and braking to help maintain the direction in which its been steered, while
Traction Control (TRAC) helps reduce slipping when accelerating. So enjoy the ride. You may
find gloating makes the drive home shorter.

Off-roading is inherently risky. Please use caution.
The making of a legend
Separated by over two decades, FJ40 and
its off-road heir, FJ Cruiser, share common
DNA. With its box shape and lozenge grille,
FJ40 is instantly recognizable, but it was
its capability and durability that made it
an icon. In fact, between 1960 and 1984
over 1,000,000 Land Cruisers were built.
With FJ Cruiser, the legend lives on.

Out here, its not just the steering wheel that tilts.
Theres not a lot of level ground in the FJ Cruisers natural habitat. Thats why the FJ offers
equipment to help keep you in control. Theres an available Multi-Information Display, complete
with an inclinometer youll no doubt consult frequently. Theres an available advanced JBL®
audio system and standard Bluetooth®1 wireless technology. That, and the steering wheel-
mounted controls will help you keep your hands on the wheel. Plus, the 8-way adjustable drivers
seat is bolstered to help keep you secure.
The available floating-ball Multi-Information Display includes
such helpful tools as an inclinometer, compass and outside
temperature gauge.
The standard audio system offers hands-free phone and
music streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology and a
90-day complimentary trial to SiriusXM Radio.2 Included
are an auxiliary audio jack and USB port3 that lets you
play music from a compatible MP3 player or flash drive.
Steering wheel-mounted controls help you operate the
system while keeping your eyes on the trail ahead.

FJ Cruiser 4x4 interior shown with available Upgrade Package.
Interior fortitude.
A true measure of strength is enduring an extreme challenge, and then having the ability to dust
yourself off and jump back into the fray. By that standard, the interior of FJ Cruiser is well put
together. When its time to head out into the middle of nowhere, the passenger seat is designed to
fold way forward, to easily load passengers and cargo. Adding even more flexibility are the two
full-size passenger doors and two rear access doors. Together, they open wide, making it easy to
clean out dust and debris each time you emerge from another one of natures obstacle courses.
A must-have for any serious off-roading. These handy tie-downs
help keep your gear in place when your rig is rocking and rolling.
Get your gear on. The vast cargo area found in FJ Cruiser,
with its 60/40 split rear seat and removable bottom cushion,
can handle all manner of weekend warrior ordnance. Just
drop the seatbacks to open up 66.8 cu. ft.1 of cargo space.
Plus, water-resistant seats and heavy-duty all-weather flooring
and rear deck make cleaning easy.
Power up. With the available 115V/400W AC power outlet,
youve got the juice to recharge electronic devices or run
small equipment, like an air compressor for refilling the tires.

1. 4x4 models only. 2. The backup camera does not provide a comprehensive view of the rear area of the vehicle. You should also look around outside your vehicle and use your mirrors to confirm rearward clearance. Cold weather
will limit effectiveness and view may become cloudy. 3. The Toyota FJ Cruiser is designed to meet most off-road driving requirements, but off-roading is inherently dangerous. Abusive use may result in bodily harm or vehicle
damage. Toyota encourages responsible operation to protect you, your vehicle and the environment. Seatbelts should be worn at all times. 4. Standard on manual transmission model. 5. Manual transmission model requires
17-in. alloy wheels. 6. Requires Convenience Package. 7. Automatic transmission only. 8. Not available with Trail Teams Special Edition Package. 9. Manual transmission only. 10. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and
distribution. 11. Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in
your Owner’s Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and available equipment. Calculated with new SAE J2807 method. 12. 2013 EPA-estimated mileage. Actual mileage will vary.
13. Toyota strives to build vehicles to match customer interest and thus they typically are built with popular options and option packages. Not all options/packages are available separately and some may not be available in all regions
of the country. See for information about options/packages commonly available in your area. If you would prefer a vehicle without any or with different options, contact your dealer to check for current availability or the

Technology operates only in the event of certain simultaneous brake and gas pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce engine power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road
conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details.
20. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and
driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 21. Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits
of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. 22. All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems.
All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing
Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back
as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious
injury or death. See your Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings. 23. Active front headrests can help reduce the extent of whiplash in certain types of rear-end collisions. 24. The Toyota Tire Pressure Monitor alerts the
driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See your Owner’s Manual for details. 25. The
engine immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you insert your key into the ignition switch, the key transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will only start if the code in the transponder chip inside
the key matches the code in the vehicle’s immobilizer. Because the transponder chip is embedded in the key, it can be costly to replace. If you lose a key, your Toyota dealer can help, or you can find a qualified independent
locksmith to replace your key or perform high-security key services at 26. This floor mat was designed specifically for use in your model and model year vehicle and SHOULD NOT be used in any other vehicle. To
avoid potential interference with pedal operation, each mat must be secured with retention hooks/clips. Do not install a floor mat on top of an existing floor mat. 27. Paint protection film for hood and fenders is applied to select
portions of the hood and fenders to help your Toyota maintain a like-new appearance. Paint protection film for front bumper is applied to select portions of the front bumper and is only available at your local Toyota dealership
for an additional charge. Toyota Genuine Accessories Warranty will only apply when the installation is performed by a trained Toyota-approved installer. If the film is installed by anyone else, the Toyota “Parts Only” warranty —
12 months — will be applicable instead. Please see dealer for details. 28. Available for vehicles with factory security.
