The Toyota FJ Cruiser did have a manual option for each model year it was produced, from 2007 to 2014. That said, you’ll only find the six-speed manual transmission in some of its 4WD models. Most 4WD models and all of the rear-wheel-drive models came with an automatic transmission.

But if you’re primarily looking for off-road adventure, this quirky-looking midsize SUV is a great choice. Here are a few other comparable models to consider, too:
