Zaran Tarapore on Lexus NX Compact Crossover SUV unveiled at Beijing Hi Yasir,
We can't tell you much more than the fact that its name stands for Nimble Crossover and that it fits in below the larger RX crossover in the brand's line-up, as the NX hasn't made its way to the UAE yet.
Zaran Tarapore on 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser | new car review Hi Trev,
Good to have you on the site and thank you for your feedback. However, for the Middle Eastern markets I must point out that there is a 2015 FJ Cruiser in showrooms and it does churn out 270 horsepower from its 4.0 litre V6 engine. Sadly, the 4-Runner isn't a model available over here.
Coming onto your point of turbocharging and possibly even supercharging engines, you're absolutely right. They can generate significantly more power and torque, however, forced induction is something better suited to road going SUVs for the simple reason that turbochargers would not aid in the low rev range and superchargers have a high chance of burning out at constant high revs. Thus, keeping the FJ Cruiser normally aspirated seems like the right thing to do. After all, it is one of the most desired SUV's for a weekend on the dunes out here in the UAE.
