Toyota FJ Cruiser Engine Oil & Transmission Fluid Capacity

Toyota FJ Cruiser was developed specifically for the American market, the first concept could be seen back in 2003, and the manufacturer rolled out the finished production model in 2005. The SUV has a rather unusual design, in the style of the fortieth series model produced in the 60-80s of the last century. I would like to note the small round headlights and large elongated turn signals on the sides of them. The radiator grille is small, rectangular. It is covered with a fine mesh and bears the name of the manufacturer.

The bumpers are also made in a retro style, they are very massive and have short overhangs, which will have a positive effect on cross-country ability. Also worth mentioning are the special plastic trims on the sills, bumpers and wheel arches. They not only give the SUV a unique appearance but also are designed to protect the paintwork of the body panels from gravel and sand flying from under the wheels in case of driving on a dirt road.

Toyota FJ Cruiser is equipped with one engine, five-speed automatic transmission, variable transmission, and an all-wheel-drive system. Although there is no choice as such, all the units presented are quite universal and capable of meeting most of the requests of potential buyers.

4.0L 6-cyl Engine 1GR-FE 6.1 litres (6.5 quarts) 0W-20, 5W-20

0W-20 is the best choice for good fuel economy and starting in cold weather. If 0W-20 is not available 5W-20 may be used. However, it must be replaced with 0W-20 at the next oil change.

The engine of the Toyota FJ Cruiser is a large V-shaped petrol atmospheric six with a volume of 3955 cubic centimetres. Thanks to its good displacement and four camshafts, the power unit develop 276 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 380 Nm of torque at 4400 crankshaft rpm.

With such an engine, the SUV accelerates to a speed of one hundred kilometres per hour in 8.4 seconds, and the maximum speed, in turn, is equal to 180 kilometres per hour. With such an engine size, you should not rely on efficiency. Fuel consumption of the Toyota FJ Cruiser will be 14.7 litres of gasoline per hundred kilometres at a city pace with frequent acceleration and braking, 11.8 litres during a measured trip on a country road and 13.4 litres in a combined driving cycle.
