Anyone seen one of these yet?
Toyota is rolling out a successor to their Land Cruiser -- called the F-J Cruiser and it looks pretty amazing. Anyone seen one in person yet?
Saw it at the auto show when it was just a prototype, saw it at this years autoshow. I am planning on purchasing one when they are released. They are also planning on releasing a Moab edition this summer I think, which is a factory offroad edition.
I want one too!
If you look at the link referenced above and click on "The F-J Bulletin" and then open the Rubicon Field Report and read it... you will be amazed at what they did to get a stock F-J down Rubicon -- it took some professional drivers and spotters, but it still happened. The best part, they keep talking about keeping the price in the low to mid-20's. Yehaw!

Before you get too excited about the low 20's base price, like all toyota's, it is gonna be for a bare bones stripped down version. If you opt for 4wd and offroad extras, you're easily looking at $30K+, very close to the 4runner cost. Especially since they're going to be selling for MSRP for at least the first year. I want to wait for the special edition coming out (plus there's rumor of a removable hardtop in the future?), but I still might put down a deposit just to get my name on the waiting list for a test drive. Now my FJ40 can have a baby brother!
Lot of good info here
