Sometimes automakers quietly scuttle a car at the end of its run. Others throw a last hurrah, like the Volkswagen New Beetle Final Edition. Toyota, it seems, took a page from the latter playbook with the FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition, which signals an end to the SUV's eight-model-year run. It hits dealerships in February 2014.
Toyota will build just 2,500 Trail Teams Ultimate Editions, which the automaker calls the "toughest and most capable FJ ever." The trim sports its own paint — a unique white grille frame and TTUE-specific blue — plus an off-road suspension with Toyota Racing Development springs and Bilstein race shocks, a quarter-inch-thick skid plate, rock rails, a roof rack and 16-inch alloy wheels with massive BF Goodrich A/T KO tires.
