Truck Trend mag had an article about the FJC where it was mentioned that it will be out in Feb as a 2007 model priced from 22-26K, stating this was info from Toyota. Yes dealers are taking deposits as read on the ih8mud.com forum...
4x4review.com has the most comprehesive int/ext pics of the FJC yet, all in blue however.
Also read in a rag that there will be three color options from the manufacturer based upon the original FJ 40s, blue, tan and I think yellow?

I spent a few hours on the internet last month, all looking for interior photo's. I finally found a site with two pictures, but alas, I'm out of state on business and using my laptop (site saved on home computer). The interior shot I observed showed an interior finish that was blue and yellow, very sharp, very retro. I can't wait to see more and will post the link when i return home in a few weeks.

our auto show was coming up, so I could see the concept in person, interior or no interior.
#344 of 1889 FJ40 concept misses the mark for me
May 17, 2005 (12:40 pm)
I have loved all the Toyota vehicles I've owned, including my current Tacoma TRD. I was initially excited to hear about the FJ40 concept, but have been disappointed with what Toyota has done with a vehicle that has so much potential.
Toyota has vehicles that covers the spectrum, but does not offer a serious, but fun, off-road vehicle. Give us something closer to the original FJ40. Give us something that would compete with a Wrangler Rubicon. Short wheelbase, front/rear lockers, good clearance, good approach/departure angles. Something with a removable top.
I was really hoping to buy another Toyota (FJ40) soon, but will lean towards the Wrangler for it's off-road capability and soft-top.

I just recently noticed that Edmunds has updated their information on the FJ Cruise as well, here is the link link title .They also indicate a release date of February 2006 but this is as a 2006 model. If this is true, I anticipate Toyota to launch more press releases and learn more info between now and the end of the year...

I don't really get you here - the FJ would seem to have most of what you asked for, except the removable top and probably the front locker.
I am sure the offroad ability will be there in spades, certainly enough to go head to head with a stock Wrangler Rubicon. But it sounds like what you really want is a soft top, and in that case Jeep is pretty much where it's at.
#348 of 1889 Please Help! I can't find any answers.
May 19, 2005 (8:10 pm)
I've been searching the net for these answers. Can anyone help me?
1. Will the interior look as cool as the concept's, with the springs in the seats and metal jeep look inside?
2. What are the colors? I know they will INCLUDE the original colors but wil Toyota offer any others?
3. When can I officially order one?
Any responses would be very much appreciated, even if these questions can not be answered as of now.

these questions cannot be answered as of now!
1. Interior is not yet finalized, but I bet they will stick to the themes of the concept, if not every detail.
2. I am sure Toyota will offer more than the three colors that have been announced to match the original. But I don't think there will be a rainbow of stock colors, or anything.
3. Once it appears in finalized form at a show, you should be able to start laying down deposits.
