2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser Overview

For 2008, the Toyota FJ Cruiser crossover SUV got some new standard features, including curtain airbags for both rows of seats and an anti-theft system. Otherwise, the FJ Cruiser has 3 trims and retains its 4.0-liter, 239-hp V6 powertrain. You'll have your pick between a five-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission.

Gas mileage averages out to 16 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway. Maximum towing capacity comes out to 5,000 lbs. With 4 doors and room for 5 passengers, the FJ Cruiser should have the capacity to handle a small family.

Overall, drivers like the FJ Cruiser's solid powertrain and retro styling. On the other hand, its towing capacity doesn't top the charts, and the unique style may turn some drivers off. In any event, 2008 marks another year of steady progress for an interesting new foreign crossover SUV.
