Toyota announced changes for the 2011 FJ Cruiser today. The biggest new is that the '11 FJ Trail
Teams edition will be a solid Army Green color. Other updates include new audio system options including MP3 playback, a USB port with iPod connectivity, and XM Radio, among other enhancements. New steering wheel audio controls include support for the built-in Bluetooth audio system.
The locking rear differential is now standard, and in a bid to improve visibility the 2011 FJ Cruiser includes rear seat headrests that fold down. The front passenger seat now folds forward further to allow for easier access to the rear seats.
Even though the press release shows a VooDoo Blue FJ Cruiser, Toyota didn't mention what color changes (if any) will happen for 2011. We expect the same lineup of colors that were available in 2010. Toyota also didn't say when we can expect to see the new models at dealerships, but we're sure they'll arrive by the end of the year.
Overall there are no major changes for the '11 FJ Cruiser, but we're excited to see a few new features. As soon as we can get our hands on an '11 we'll be sure to update you!
Full Press Release
The new colors for the 2011 FJ Cruiser were missed on our first article covering the press release, but the PDF spec sheet clearly lists "Calvary Blue" (Not sure if that's supposed to be Calvalry) and "Quicksand" as new colors for the '11 model year. The press shots clearly show that the new blue is more 'muted' than the previous VooDoo Blue:
We're left to guess on what the Quicksand FJ Cruiser will look like. We're guessing something like this:
With production slated to begin in November, we expect to see new FJ's hitting the US by Late December or January 2011.
UPDATE: A reader noticed that Sun Fusion is not on the color list, so presumeably it won't be available in 2011.
