About Toyota FJ Cruiser
The FJ Cruiser uses the 4.0-liter 1GR-FE DOHC V6. For the 2007 to 2009 model years, the engine came with single variable valve timing (VVT-i) which produces 239 hp (178 kW) at 5200 rpm, and 278 lb⋅ft (377 N⋅m) of torque at 3,700 rpm on 91 octane fuel. For the 2010 model year, the FJ Cruiser’s engine gained Dual VVT-i technology which adjusts timing on both intake and exhaust camshafts resulting in 259 hp (193 kW) at 5600 rpm, and 270 lb⋅ft (366 N⋅m) on 87 octane, in addition to slightly improved fuel economy on 91 octane fuel. For model year 2011, these figures rose to 260 hp (194 kW) at 5600 rpm, and 271 lb⋅ft (367 N⋅m).
The 2011 onwards engine meets stringent LEV II/Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions certification Both versions of the 1GR-FE engine run normally on 87 octane fuel though they produce less power thus Toyota recommends premium fuel for demanding situations such as towing, off-roading, and driving at high elevation.
