End of The Road for the FJ Cruiser and Matrix

2014 FJ Cruiser
2014 is the end of the road for the eccentric FJ Cruiser, a Toyota fan favorite for many who wanted an SUV whose off-roading capabilities couldn’t be beat.

2014 has been a great year for Toyota. The Toyota Camry remained the top-selling car in the United States, the Toyota Tacoma has already teased its 2016 version which looks better than ever, and the Toyota Mirai is one of the first fuel cell vehicles to be sold commercially. However, 2014 also spells the end of the road for a few Toyota favorites.

The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser will be the last year this fun and quirky looking Toyota SUV will be made. From its first year in 2007 until now, the FJ Cruiser’s incredible suspension system and powerful V6 engine won the hearts of off-road enthusiasts everywhere. With the end of the Cruiser, these enthusiasts will have to look for the Toyota Tacoma, 4Runner, or Land Cruiser to help pick-up where this vehicle left off.

2014 is also the last year for the Toyota Matrix hatchback. Praised for its top-notch safety features and affordable price, the Matrix has been a fan favorite for over ten years. Now Matrix lovers can turn to the Prius for an economical choice for a new hatchback.

While we are sad that it’s the end of the road for the FJ Cruiser and Matrix, we know that it just opens up the doors for new Toyota models to be released, like the Toyota Mirai which is already getting rave reviews for its great fuel economy and efficiency.
