Hooniverse Asks: What’s a good replacement for an FJ Cruiser?

Kamil Kaluski August 7, 2017 Hooniverse Asks 20 Comments

When Toyota introduced the 2007 FJ Cruiser it immediately created a cult following. It looked different, a retro design pulled off well. It was built on a fourth generation 4Runner frame, known for its capability and strength. Add to it the element of Toyota reliability and it’s no wonder that Toyota sold a ton of them. Out of production for over a year now, ridiculously high prices of used ones further reinforce the love that this vehicle has from its owners. 

A friend messaged me the other asking what is a good replacement vehicle for his 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. I asked him what is wrong with his FJ? Does he need space? More towing ability? More functionality? 

Nope. None of those. He actually loves his FJ. For him it was love at first sight – he traded-in his GT-R for it! The problem is that it’s his daily driver and it is now ten years old and has 200,000 miles on the odometer. He is simply looking for something similarly different and innovative. Is there such thing?
