There’s something about offroad vehicles that brings out the adventurer in us. We’d like to traverse the roads less taken, go deep into the safaris, cross rivers and deserts. We can go literally almost everywhere with those monsters. When we ride one, nothing can hold us back! And whenever we think of 4x4s, flashbacks of our daddy’s or grandpa’s Toyota Landcruiser FJ40 comes into mind, crossing those bumpy pothole filled roads and flooded streets. It was the king of the highway. FJ40s are so tough you can still see some on the road. Big wheels, indestructible body, strong engines, rugged styling, and oozing with machismo. So much for the introduction. Lo and behold the revival of Toyota’s FJ40, the one and only FJ Cruiser.
The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a retro style, mid-size SUV with styling and off-road performance reminiscent of the original Toyota Land Cruiser (FJ40). The “FJ” in the Toyota FJ Cruiser’s name refers to the chassis specification code of the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. The classic Land Cruiser was produced worldwide from 1960 until 1984. And like the old FJ40, the Toyota FJ Cruiser has superior off-road capabilities.
The production of the FJ Cruiser has been discontinued in 2014 and only a handful is available in showrooms. If you want one, now is the time to get it. However, excitement and capability live on with adventure-ready Toyota vehicles. In the Philippines, the excitement over these vehicles is very much alive with the upcoming Pilipinas FJ Summit™ 2017.
Good News to all car enthusiast there will be a grand showcase and EB of FJ Cruiser owners from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.Everyone’s invited to come and participate.Pilipinas FJ Summit™ 2017 will be a family event.

“The main attraction of the Summit will be the convergence of as many FJ Cruisers that can be accommodated in the 4-hectare Summit grounds.
