2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser to get 19 hp engine upgrade
Toyota’s American arm has announced that the 2010 FJ Cruiser will feature several upgrades, including a much-needed power upgrade for the Japanese-built 4×4.
The engine upgrade will include dual VVT-i variable-valve timing and roller rocker arms on the 4.0-litre V6, which will add 19 hp over the current U.S. model’s 239 hp, while mildly improving fuel economy.
Minor suspension changes will reduce the turning radius by almost half a metre, and a new “Army Green” exterior colour will be offered.
Even with these upgrades, American pricing will increase by only Dhs 1,000. It is likely that the upgrade will be offered on GCC-spec models too, although judging by the UAE dealer’s past shenanigans, the price increase will likely be much steeper.
