2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser Fuel Economy

5.0
On Fuel Economy

The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser is only offered with a rather thirsty 4.0-liter V-6 engine; but mileage does vary depending on whether you choose rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, stick or automatic.

With rear-wheel drive and the five-speed auto, you get 17/22 mpg city/highway and 19 mpg combined. Four-wheel drive lowers that estimate by only 1 mpg. And it would be sacrilege to get an FJ without four-wheel drive. 

If you're a serious off-roader, then you're probably going to be okay with the FJ Cruiser's thirst.

The automatic transmission is really the more fuel efficient option here. Go with the manual, and mileage drops to 15/20 mpg city/highway and a combined figure of 17 mpg.

Compared to other mainstream SUVs, those are some very low numbers. But they are closer to what other sturdy off-road models like the Nissan Xterra or Jeep Wrangler return.
