Default Toyota FJ Cruiser

27/02/2008

Sorry For the late entry. The pic was with one of my friends and he had gone to the States.

On that day I saw this SUV and thought might be something too high class

It was the TOYOTA FJ CRUISER

It was because the car was looking just like a concept car. It was standing Near Khan Chacha in Khan market. And then it flew off like a Sports car.

FJ Cruiser is a retro design to commemorate the '60s (?) land cruiser and the most famous color is that blue with white top. This car is sold in only three colors I guess - Blue, yellow and black. Blue is the best of the lot.

the blue plates certainly look like c/d plates

if i am not wrong if it was on carnet it would have had the regd plate of the respective country just like the kuwait h2,escalade..the the dubai h3,cayene,g wagen etc etc that were spotted earlier

since it has c/d plates it must be a consolate car
and they are allowed to bring down cars for temporary period

White, Silver, Gold(champagne) and deep maroon (Black Cherry Pearl I believe is the color) are the other options.

Car looks terrific in all black.

i'm guessing ti was either 77CD or 11CD right? or maybe UN?! Embassey cars can be sold off here in India when the owners are leaving the country. Best time to buy their cars are when they have to evacuate
I remember one of my friends selling her 4 month old Land Cruiser for 12 Lacs

The base version starts at $24K. A fairly loaded version gets closer to the $30-33K mark.

My knowledge is from 2006 when I checked the FJ-Cruiser site before it was launched in US market. At that time they only had three colors on that site and those are the only colors I saw on the streets as well. May be the site wasn't updated when I saw it.
