2016 Toyota Fortuner displays its off-roading capabilities in new video

2016 Toyota Fortuner displays its off-roading capabilities in new video

Toyota has released a new video of the 2016 iteration of the Fortuner SUV highlighting its off-roading capabilities. This is the second generation of the car and it is based on the Hilux. It is expected to be brought to the 2016 Auto Expo in India, followed by its launch in the course of the year.

Powering the new Toyota Fortuner are the new GD set of engines. The new 150bhp 2.4-litre and 177bhp 2.8-litre GD units will replace the present 2.5-litre and 3.0-litre KD diesel mills respectively. And, despite the downsize in capacity, the new GD series engines pack more power and torque offering all the thrust required to go through rough terrain. The transmission options include either a six-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.

In terms of design, the new Fortuner gets a complete makeover. The car looks sharper than the present model with the fascia sporting a new two-slat grille. This extends up to the headlamps and has flanks that taper over the headlights. To add to the bling factor, the sweptback projector headlamps are surrounded by chrome embellishments. The bumper is redesigned and gets a new black air dam, while the fog lamp housings are surrounded by thick curved aluminium accents. A similar slim-cut treatment with sleek LED tail lamps can be seen at the back.

Changes extend into the cabin of the Fortuner as well, with a new layout for the dashboard. The center console is vertically-oriented with a touch screen entertainment system, automatic AC controls and lot of storage spaces. The new three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel comes with audio controls, while the instrument cluster comes with a multi-information display.

2016 Toyota Fortuner

This 2016 Fortuner is currently on sale in the Thailand and Australian markets and will soon be introduced in South America. We can expect Toyota Kirloskar Motors to bring the car to the 2016 Auto Expo in India and launch it for Indian market as well. It will compete with the Ford Endeavour and the Chevrolet Trailblazer then. Have a look at the new Toyota Fortuner in action as it takes on different terrains.
