Edmunds' Inside Line




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. 

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
