Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40
The car that made the Land Cruiser nameplate world famous entered the automotive market in 1960. It was a purely utilitarian, short-wheelbase off-roader. During the production run between 1984 and 2001 in Brazil, the J40 had dozens of iterations. Because some of the unmatched off-road performance, the Land Cruiser gathered a cult status among mud-loving enthusiasts.
One of them was the FJ40, a version powered by a 3.8L inline six engine. But the ultimate version was the 2FJ40 with the power coming from a 4.2L inline six. The J40 had a few memorable diesel versions as well. But the biggest was the 2H 4.0L straight six. The J40 series was available as two or four-wheel drive with two or four doors, or even as a pickup.
However, the two-door four-wheel drive model is generally the most sought-after model. Even so, all versions can provide drivers with endless fun. Especially the J40 Land Cruiser, which is easy to modify and customize. It is the first Japanese off-roader/SUV model that became globally popular even in the U.S.A.
