Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has launched the new generation Fortuner in the country, with prices starting at ₹ 25.92 lakh for the base petrol manual variant, going up to ₹ 31.12 lakh for the top-end diesel automatic variant (all-prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The all-new SUV was first revealed last year in Thailand. The premium SUV marks the second major launch from the Japanese car maker in India after the Innova Crysta.
The all-new Fortuner is Toyota India’s second major launch this year. The new Fortuner is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. It is based on the lighter & stiffer all-new TNGA platform.
Petrol power comes from a 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine that is tuned to churn out 164bhp at 5200rpm and 245Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual, 6-speed automatic (with paddle shift) transmission options and is available only in the 2WD version.
Diesel lovers will appreciate the 2.8-litre four-cylinder oil burner on the new Fortuner – shared with the Innova Crysta – and is tuned to produce 174.5bhp at 3400rpm and 420Nm of torque on the manual and 450Nm on the automatic versions, available between 1600-2400rpm. The oil burner is mated to a 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions and comes with the 2WD and 4WD options.
The all-new Toyota Fortuner is loaded with tech including seven airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Assist Control, ABS with EBD, Downhill Assist Control (only on 4WD) and much more.
