Update sets back FJ Cruiser de­but

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE - By PAUL GOVER

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.’’
