Toyota's TRD performance division has prepared this FJ Cruiser Concept that will make an appearance next week at the SEMA show.
Another part of Toyota’s arsenal for next week’s SEMA show is this FJ Cruiser Concept developed by the company’s performance division TRD.
To create a vehicle with greater off-road abilities TRD modified the suspension by using 60mm Bilstein racing shocks up front and 50mm at the rear with remote reservoirs. The car now rides on a new set of 17-inch TRD Midnight Black beadlock-style wheels covered by BFGoodrich All-Terrain rubbers.
Power comes from the V6 4.0-liter engine that has gained a TRD supercharger with a Twin Vortices System (TVS) and a big air-to-water intercooler. Thanks to these changes, the engine is now 30 percent more powerful and has 25 percent more torque, producing 345 hp (257 kW) at 3,500 rpm and a peak torque of 340 lb-ft (460 Nm) at 3,500 rpm. The power is sent to the wheels with the help of a 5-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission.
In the press release below you will find all the modifications.
