Last week at the FJ Summit, Mike Fort (Owner of Toyota of Pekin) and Joe Bacal, from JT Grey Performance Driving announced a new Special Edition FJ Cruiser project. What we're dubbing the "Joe Bacal SE FJC" will be a complete package setup for desert racing and will be available this fall. Other details haven't been released yet, but we're expecting the new truck to debut at SEMA 2012 later this year. Since Joe will be consulting on all the modifications, we're sure it'll be THE FJ Cruiser to own.
Toyota added the 2013 FJ to their website today, so we can get a better look at the options and configure our ‘ideal’ factory build. The photo gallery includes the new colors, but there’s a good chance those are photochopped in. We’ve seen pics of “Magma” in the wild, but haven’t found one close enough to take our photos yet.
We configured a good ‘base’ MT Magma model on the site using the “Build your FJ Cruiser” tool, and came out to $31,490 with the “Convenience Package” and no other options. We expect that you may be able to do a little better if you take delivery from dealer stock. We’ve seen a few ’13 models locally, but we’re waiting for a Magma to take a test drive.
The Cement Grey Trail teams edition is also on the site, and shows the standard set of photos & information on the new model. Like the Magma, we're unsure of the color until we se it in person. It will be hard to beat the 2012 TTSE as far as we're concerned.
Toyota has announced that the concept "Baja Ready" FJ-S FJ Cruiser will be on display at SEMA next week. This looks like the same truck TRD brought to the FJ Summit last July, but haven't received confirmation from Toyota yet. At any rate, this truck looks great and we'll be sure to get more details when we get to Vegas. You can follow all of our SEMA coverage on our SEMA 2012 Page.
