Supercharged 6-Speed: 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser

The Toyota FJ Cruiser (2010-2018) was a retro-style mid-sized SUV that should not be confused with the original Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 (1960-1984). The FJ Cruiser did however take off where the FJ40 left by being built on a proper body-on-frame chassis and off-road capable. The FJ Cruiser left the factory with suspension borrowed from the LandCruiser Prado/4Runner/Tacoma and a grunty 4.0 liter V6. Today’s example is not only equipped with 4-wheel-drive plus the rare 6-speed manual, but also sports a TRD supercharger for extra punch.
