well if i had to guess i'd imagine that the FJ would come in lighter, more "earthy" tones like every other vehicle in their lineup, even similar to the old FJ colors. I found the quote in the web-link below and it supports this. Hope this helps you out some.
"The modern FJ Cruiser retains design and styling cues from the original FJ40, such as the round front headlights, exterior rear tire carrier, upright windshield and white roof cap. The original "Toyota" badging on the front grille appears as it did when Toyota first entered the North American market, and the first colors are expected to include yellow, tan and light blue, as they did in the original."

I filled out the survey as well - there seemed to be a fair number of "pricing" questions. Toyota may still not know exactly how they will price the loaded FJ models.
I spoke with a member of Toyota's FJ testing team "off the record" a few weeks ago. He is a 4X4 enthusiast and is extremely enthusiastic about the FJ. He says the 4 liter 6 rides like a dream offroad and the suspension has been beefed up from the original test vehicles to make it a serious off-road contender. The design engineers from various groups feel very good about the quality of the initial production vehicles, since most of the critical components have been borrowed from the 4Runner and Tacoma. Good to hear it from the source!

Any idea whether leather interior will be offered with the FJ?

I asked how a rear seat passenger is supposed to see out of the rear or how a driver is supposed to see over his shoulder for lane changes with a 2 foot wide blind spot

With mirrors... In all honesty, I don't think that it will be that big of a deal. You have a large back window and large side window before that gap. You will be able to see a whole lot better out of this compared to a crossfire or an S2000 with the top up. If people can drive those people can drive this. Just back into parking spots to make your life easier.
#471 of 1889 How to open rear window?

I really wish they kept the power rear window. My dog has to look out and it is way cool to drive around with the window down (no glare and people can see in just like a convertible.
Also, there is no way the window can hinge out with the rear wheel mounted. If it folds up into the ceiling, that's awesome!

Do you think the 2007 Toyota FJ-Cruiser will beat any of the hummers off-road?

H1 - NO
H2 - YES
H3 - Don't know but I saw one a couple weeks ago and I hated the fenders! Similar to the front fenders on a NEW Durango.
