Latest model: Toyota FJ Cruiser 2007
The Toyota FJ Cruiser (FJC) is a retro-style compact SUV by Toyota presented as a concept at the 2003 Chicago Auto Show and in production form at the following North American International Auto Show. On sale in early 2006 as a 2007 model, it features look-and-feel reminiscent of the original Fj-series Land Cruisers from the 1960s (particularly the front fascia and wrap around back windows) , but is based on the Hi-lux platform also used by the modern 4runner and Land Cruiser Prado. The Toyota FJ Cruiser is only sold in North America. The FJ cruiser was not originally tailored for production but thanks to enormous consumer response about the vehicle following the North American International Auto Show, production evidently began.

Toyota FJ Cruiser details:
The Toyota FJ Cruiser primarily competes with the Nissan Xterra, Jeep Wrangler and the Hummer H3. Base pricing is between US$21000, and US$23000,. At 183. 9 inches in length, the Toyota FJ Cruiser is the longest compact SUV provided in North America, slotting between the smaller RAV4 (181. 1 in. overall length; originally rumored to be replaced by the Toyota FJ Cruiser) and the mid-size Highlander (184. 6 in. overall length). The addition of the Toyota FJ Cruiser adds a sixth SUV in Toyota's American lineup, meaning Toyota will have two compact Suvs (the RAV4 and Toyota FJ Cruiser), two mid-size Suvs (highlander and 4runner), and two full-size Suvs (sequoia and Land Cruiser). One in every category is biased for on-road use, while the other caters to more off-road enthusiasts. It is also Toyota's only current car to use the name TOYOTA spelled out across the grille instead of the corporate emblem, another nod to the classic FJ40.
