Toyota launches FJ Cruiser
Toyota Astra Motors (TAM) launched on Sunday its new sport utility vehicle (SUV), the Toyota FJ Cruiser, to fulfill domestic demand for adventure vehicles.
"We expect, with the presence of the FJ Cruiser, that Toyota can meet demand from loyal fans of this legendary vehicle as well as our customers who love driving challenges," marketing director Joko Trisanyoto said after the event during the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) at the Jakarta International Expo in Kemayoran.
The adventure-ready four wheel drive vehicle utilizes a 4,000 cc-engine and is designed to be able to run in various off-road conditions.
