Update sets back FJ Cruiser debut
THE second car in Toyota Australia’s latest youth drive is running late.
The FJ Cruiser, originally planned to join the boxy Rukus in showrooms this year, is not com- ing until the first quarter of next year.
The delay is caused by an upcoming update of the FJ, which is focussed on the USA.
‘‘There might have been talk about this year, but it’s now in its facelift phase at the moment in the USA. It picks up some changes, mostly interior,’’ Toyota spokesman Mike Breen said.
‘‘We’re waiting for the facelift model. That means it will be in the first quarter of next year.’’
