For 2011, the Toyota FJ Cruiser undergoes minor changes, with the addition of Bluetooth connectivity and new exterior colours.

Designed for the North American market, the FJ Cruiser uses a full frame modified from the Tacoma pickup truck, and a 4.0-litre V6 engine with six-speed manual transmission or optional five-speed automatic. The full-time four-wheel drive includes stability control, Active Traction Control, rear differential lock, two-speed transfer case, and fuel tank and transfer case protector plates.

The FJ Cruiser comes in a single trim line and includes 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input, Bluetooth connectivity, water-repellent fabric seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, power locks, power windows, three-spoke tilt steering wheel, rubber floor with all-weather floor mats, front tow hook, foldable exterior mirrors, flip-up rear hatch glass, splash guards, variable intermittent wipers, and rear washer/wiper.

The available Off-Road Package includes 16-alloy wheels with mud-and-snow raised white-letter tires, front and rear Bilstein shock absorbers, passenger folding armrest, rear privacy glass, cruise control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated back-up camera, multi-information display, keyless entry, exterior mirror image lamps and spare tire cover.

The Adventure Package builds on the Off-Road Package and adds six-CD stereo with JBL Audio, wheel-mounted audio controls and rear subwoofer, 115-volt power outlet, running boards, leather-wrapped steering wheel, colour-keyed interior door trim and cargo area mat, but deletes the Bilstein shock absorbers and 16-inch wheels.
