As Toyota prepares to roll out its new version of this classic, this book offers a close-up, behind-the-scenes look at the development and production of the new FJ Cruiser, a retro 4x4 that combines its famous predecessor’s unparalleled style with solid off-road capabilities and all the convenience and comfort that today’s technology offers. With interviews from the designers, engineers, and executives involved in making the FJ Cruiser, as well as more than 150 photos of the new vehicle and details on the 4x4’s specifications, this book puts readers into the driver’s seat of Toyota’s next classic Cruiser.
