Considering the very utilitarian, back-to-basics look and feel of the 2013 FJ Cruiser, it comes with a surprisingly good set of interior comfort and convenience items, with many of them standard; and for those who really want to maximize the FJ's off-road potential, there are several pointed packages to do just that--and look good doing so.

On all FJ models, standard equipment includes air conditioning, water-resistant seats, a tilt steering wheel, a rear-door-mounted full-size spare tire, front and rear-tow hooks, plus mudguards. Step up to the Convenience Package and you get cruise control, daytime running lights, a rear window wiper, and a spare tire cover, plus a rear backup camera--really a necessity if you plan to drive the FJ around town, or parallel-park.

Audio and connectivity features are really just as strong as those in Toyota's other crossovers and trucks. The standard audio system includes Bluetooth hands-free connectivity plus six speakers and ports for an iPod, auxiliary cable, or USB device, and steering-wheel controls apply to audio and Bluetooth functions. A JBL 10-speaker premium system is also on offer.

Dedicated off-roaders have plenty of upgrade possibilities. A mechanical rear diff lock, A-TRAC active traction control, and a multi-information display (inclinometer, compass, temperature) are all available, but if you opt for the All Terrain package you get all of the above plus BF Goodrich Rugged Trail tires, 16-inch aluminum wheels, Bilstein shock absorbers, a Cyclone air precleaner, and a trip computer. With the Class Four receiver hitch, you’ll be able to tow up to 4,700 pounds.

With the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) sport package, you'll get unique alloys and BFG All-Terrain tires, among other upgrades; but those who want the trail ability with fresh styling may want to opt for the Trail Teams Special Edition Package. It includes most of the extras mentioned above but also scores you some off-road lights, an aluminum shift knob and aluminum scuff plates, plus body color-matched interior highlights. And for 2013, the Trail Teams Package is newly offered in Cement Gray


Conclusion

The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser includes more creature comforts than you might guess for such a tough, off-road-focused SUV.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
