We were hoping to include a full test drive review of the 2009 FJ Cruiser. Unfortunately, as of October 1st, there are still no ’09 FJ’s in Colorado (or anywhere else). The 2009’s are available to configure on the Toyota.com
website, so we parsed through every option available so we could give everyone this first look.
The main updates for 2009 are in the colors available. The silver ‘Titanium Metallic’ color has been dropped in favor of a ‘Silver Fresco Metallic’. We’re not exactly sure what the difference is since we haven’t seen one in person, but the consensus seems be that it will be a somewhat darker silver. The Iceberg color is now also available, but only in the 2WD “Prerunner” version with the TRD Package. ‘Black Diamond’ is now called ‘Black’, again we’re not sure what the difference is.
