The 2014 FJ Cruiser might look and feel a little back-to-basics, but those looking for interior comfort and convenience won't find themselves aching for options. At the same time, those looking for a potent off-roading machine will find a wide array of extras that can aide their FJ is traversing the untamed road–and look good in the process.

Every FJ comes standard with water-resistant seats, air conditioning, a full-size spare mounted on the rear door, front and rear tow-hooks, a tilt steering wheel, and mudguards. The Convenience Package adds a rear window wiper, daytime running lights, cruise control, a cover for the spare, and a reverse camera, which we'd consider a necessity for anyone who plans to drive the FJ around town.

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.

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.

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.

Conclusion

The FJ Cruiser's a tough off-roader, but it hasn't missed out on Toyota's latest connectivity features.

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.
