TRD FJ Cruiser Concept gets Baja-themed off-roading capability

TRD, Toyota’s in-house tuning arm has revealed the details and images of a new FJ Cruiser Concept that will make its debut at the 2013 SEMA Show. The TRD FJ Cruiser Concept takes a look into studying a Baja-themed off-roader.

“TRD’s work on high-performance off-road variants of Toyota vehicles goes back a number of years,” said Keith Dahl, Toyota’s national manager of engagement marketing and motorsports. “The FJ-S is a great example of their off-road expertise.”

TRD has upgraded the chassis/body structure for more serious off-roading capabilities and has also added an underbody “exoskeleton.”

The front suspension gets 60-mm Bilstein racing shocks that provide a 1.3-inch lift, and 50-mm Bilstein racing shocks with remote reservoirs in the rear. Sturdy 17-inch TRD Midnight Black beadlock-style wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires give the FJ a go-anywhere personality.

Power comes from a the FJ’s 4.0 liter V6 but it has been upgraded with supercharger helping it create 345-hp and 340 lb-ft of torque –  a 25 percent improvement over the stock engine.
