FJ Cruisers

After months of looking for a new car, this is it. Unfortunately it is not available here yet. Anybody any ideas why?

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a retro-style compact SUV produced by Toyota.

First introduced as a concept car in Chicago at the 2003 Chicago Auto  The FJ Cruiser was originally not intended for production, but due to enormous consumer response about the car following the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit, manufacturing began in early 2006.

 It went on sale in early 2006 as a 2007 model and features styling reminiscent of the original Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers from the 1960s (particularly the front fascia and wrap around rear windows) and is based on the Land Cruiser Prado platform.

This is a classic of a car and really keeps true to the early days of off roading and yet would look good parked next to an M series in your garage.

Definately going to keep my eye out for this one when it finally hits our shores.
