Toyota may offer the India bound Fortuner with two engine options – a 2.8-litre diesel producing 177 bhp and 450 Nm of torque and a 2.4-litre diesel producing 150 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. toyotafortuner8Toyota has focused on creating a more distinctive, sleek and powerful design while improving performance and adding a wide variety of features to increase convenience, safety and ride comfort.On the outside, the all-new Fortuner debuts a compelling design with a strong identity, expressing refinement and innovation as well as being functional and tough. toyotafortuner6The large, slanted upper grille is framed by thick chrome plating that extends around the sleek, aggressive headlamps, while the prominent trapezoidal front bumper creates a sense of depth. Along the side, a bold character line runs across the doors between the flared front and rear fenders, while the C-pillar has been blacked out to produce a “floating roof” effect for a dynamically striking look even when the vehicle is stationary.toyotafortuner9The Toyota Fortuner measures 4795mm x 1855mm wide. Its height is 1835, making it at last wider than it is tall. Wheelbase is 2750mm, and it has a 193mm ground clearance.
toyotafortuner7The new Fortuner’s interior exhibits the toughness of an SUV, tempered with the elegance of a premium sedan.  Innovative touches (model dependent) include a tablet-inspired multi-media, touch-screen display that allows easy operation of functions, a Smart Entry & Start system, an electronic 4WD switch and second-row seats with one-touch operation for ease of folding. The third row seats are equipped with a fixed hook attachment for simple and convenient stowage. There are no fewer than 15 storage areas in the new Fortuner.toyotafortuner3On the ride and handling front, an all-new frame bolstered by cross members, side rails and suspension towers that have all been strengthened, enhancing the torsional and bending rigidity of the frame. This not only improves durability, but also drive quality and safety. The suspension uses a double wishbone (front) and a four-link suspension (rear) combination that has been redesigned for optimised comfort. An additional rear stabiliser has been installed to aid on-the-road smoothness and stability.toyotafortuner2All variants will feature front and rear air-conditioning, large touchscreen audio displays, Toyota Link connected mobility, side steps, 17 or 18-inch wheels, disc brakes front and rear, and an air-conditioned compartment that helps keep drinks and food warm or cold.A reversing camera is standard across the range, as are seven airbags, hill-start assist control and an emergency stop signal. The two higher grades are fitted with roof rails, fog lamps, reverse parking sensors, keyless smart entry and start, and downhill assist control.toyotafortuner1No word yet on the availability in Nepal but we expect UTS, the sole authorised dealer of Toyota vehicles in Nepal, will launch the new Fortuner by early next-year.
