Toyota will no longer produce its FJ Cruiser mid-size SUV after the 2014 model year, the automaker announced Tuesday at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Toyota will produce a limited edition version called the 2014 FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Ultimate Edition as a run of only 2,500 vehicles. Toyota produced the FJ Cruiser, which was inspired by the Land Cruiser FJ40 of the 1960s, for eight model years.

The vehicle saw only 369 fleet registrations in calendar-year 2012. Of those, 269 were rental cars.

    It looks like the Jeep Wrangler will remain unchallenged in the REAL 4x4 market. Even though the FJ cruiser looked cool it took ALOT of $$$$ to make it trail worthy compared to the JK.

    Not a great play. People want them! Look at the resale value of a used one.
