Toyota has announced that the end is near for the FJ Cruiser in the Middle East, confirming that it will be discontinued in December 2022. But before that happens, Toyota will introduce a special Final Edition.
The FJ Cruiser has been sold in the Middle East since 2007 and has continued to survive even after being pulled from all other markets. Just 1,000 examples of the Final Edition model will be produced, each differentiated from the standard model through a host of special touches.
While we’ve yet to see photos of the 2023 FJ Cruiser Final Eddition, Toyota revealed that all 1,000 units will be finished in the same shade of beige and come complete with a blacked-out grille, bumpers, exterior wing mirrors, door handles, and spare tire cover. In addition, 17-inch aluminum wheels and side steps are included. Each example will also be equipped with a Final Edition badge.
“The FJ Cruiser rides into the sunset leaving lasting memories of one of the most iconic SUVs in Toyota’s rich history,” chief representative from Toyota’s Middle East and Central Asia Representative Office, Kei Fujita, said in a statement. “The vehicle’s winning combination of off-road capabilities, style, and performance make it equally at home during desert adventures or everyday activities and provides a comfortable and dependable experience for drivers and passengers, wherever their journeys may lead.”
The 2023 Toyota FJ Cruiser Final Edition will continue to be powered by a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine that is good for 270 hp and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque.
Pricing details haven’t been announced, but the model will start to reach the hands of customers in the fourth quarter of 2022.
