Drilling in on the FJ Cruiser

Some highlights from the FJ Cruiser spec sheet. Overall low gearing is 33.66, about average for a typical automatic. By comparison, a manual Hilux is in the mid-40s. The 12.4m turning circle is okay, but not wonderful. It's in there with the 70 Series Land Cruiser and current Nissan Patrol. Curb weight is 1945-2000kg. Ground clearance is quoted at 224mm and wading depth, 700mm. Approach and departure angles are 36deg and 29deg. Bottom line: a vehicle with definite potential.
