Toyota has updated its retro-styled FJ Cruiser for 2013, adding a larger fuel sub-tank for greater driving range, along with the CRAWL off-road cruise control system.

Joining the existing 72 litre main fuel tank, Toyota says the new 87 litre sub-tank increases the FJ's theoretical driving range to 1060km in city driving, or more than 1700km on the highway.

Combined fuel consumption figures for the FJ's 200kW/380Nm 4.0 litre petrol V6 are listed at 11.4 l/100km, suggesting a notional driving range of nearly 1400km.

In week-long city and freeway testing, The Motor Report achieved a best fuel average of 12.9 l/100km.

Along with the increased fuel capacity, Toyota has blessed the FJ with its CRAWL system. Designed to assist drivers navigating tricky terrain, CRAWL is a 'feet-off' control system that operates in low-range and replaces Downhill Assist Control.

The system engages in low-range and temporarily cuts out at speeds above 25km/h - over above 10km/h when the rear differential is locked.

A speed selector dial offers a choice of five speeds, maintaining that speed in uphill and downhill driving by controlling engine output and brake hydraulic pressure.

The FJ also cops a price increase for 2013, from $46,490 to $47,990 (plus on-roads). The FJ launched in 2011 at $44,990.

FJ Cruiser is covered by Toyota Service Advantage capped-price servicing at a maximum of $210 per service.
