Toyota's retro-styled FJ Cruiser has been given a light update for the 2014 model year, (re)gaining an iconic colour option and adding a new wheel design to the mix.

Joining the FJ's 2014 palette is a new 'Retro Blue' shade, inspired by the original blue paint used with the classic FJ40, sold here through the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

There's also a new 17-inch seven-spoke wheel design for the 2014 FJ - and that's the full extent of the big Prado-based 4WD's tweaks.

This latest update comes as the second tweak for the FJ in 2013 however, with a March upgrade adding a larger fuel sub-tank and Toyota's CRAWL off-road cruise control system.

Pricing for the FJ remains unchanged at $47,990 plus on-roads, with a 200kW/380Nm 4.0 litre petrol V6 the only powertrain option.

Don't expect a diesel engine anytime soon, either. Speaking with TMR earlier this year, Toyota Australia's Mike Breen confirmed that global demand is not strong enough to make a case for such a model.

“As there is little or no demand for a diesel variant in either the North American or Japanese market, the relatively small volumes we take does not justify homologation of a diesel for our market," Mr Breen said.

Australian sales for the FJ have tapered off in the past year, with September figures show the big Cruiser on 2010 sales year-to-date, compared to 2334 for the same period in 2012.

The drop is unlikely to faze Toyota however, with initial forecasts for the FJ limited to just 100 Australian sales per month. Even now, two years after its local launch, monthly FJ sales are hovering between 150 to 220 units.
