About Toyota FJ Cruiser

By the time the original FJ40 production finished in 1984, Toyota had moved its focus to boosting the size and luxury of the Land Cruiser series. Toyota’s product planner Dave Danzer and vice-president of sales and operations Yoshi Inaba first discussed the idea of a new FJ with the robust characteristics of the FJ40 in the mid-1990s.

Danzer secretly collaborated with Akio Toyoda to establish a special shop at the NUMMI plant to test the viability of a new FJ40 by combining Tacoma underpinnings with the bodies of Toyota Bandeirantes, a FJ40-based vehicle that was still in production in Brazil (as a diesel model only) at the time; the Bandeirantes were discontinued in 2001. Toyoda returned to Japan to join the board of directors, lending his support to the initiative at a high level. Calty, Toyota’s flagship design team, was then enlisted to create a new vision of the FJ40.

Toyota’s offroad vehicle, known internally as the Rugged Youth Utility (RYU), was designed to appeal to young male shoppers, a market segment Toyota believed they were losing touch with at the time. Many variations on the RYU concept were developed, including the 2001 Rugged Sports Coupe concept, until a retro style design made by 24-year-old designer Jin Won Kim was chosen as the final exterior concept, with interior design by William Chergosky.
