Consider this...the first US Based Landcruiser available with an Auto Tranny, the 1988 FJ62 (4.0L 3FE & A440f tranny) had a stock crawl ratio around 26 to 1. This new FJ aint too bad at all! carrying 5 people and towing 5000lbs?! For under $24000. I gotta say i'm almost impressed. will know when i test drive!
powderpig said:The axle ratio is different for the manual (3.7xx) and the auto was 3.9x.
So the auto has a better diff ratio and has the torque converter as well. So the auto will have a better crawl ratio for the trails. As for the manual haivng a real low 1 gear, why ? Most drivers of the FJ would never use such a low gear, it would be a waste for all but a very small % of people. Aftermarket will come up with some solutions soon enough if you really think you might need it. The hardcore people that will wheel these or any vechicle will build a truck any how. Remember a real 4wheel drive is built not bought. later robbie
O yea, the final drives for the overdrive is better for the auto as well, that is another reason the auto gets better fuel economy on the highway.
powderpig said:Thanks for posting the correct ratio's. I was sure I had it right, then I saw in the full specs that I was wrong. That then reiforces the better fuel ecomany with the auto haveing the better gears for cruising the road. later robbie
