Toyota in Indonesia has launched the all-new Toyota Fortuner at RP 442,000,000 (Rs 21.60 lakh). This SUV is expected to roll off Toyota’s manufacturing unit at Karawang. Toyota assertively carried the theme “Leading the world with style and confidence” at the launch venue.
Two engines are being offered on the new Fortuner - a 2.4-litre diesel and a 2.7-litre petrol motor. The petrol motor that produces 163bhp and 242Nm of torque is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that will only come in one variant called the SRZ for the 2WD version. The diesel-powered 2.4-litre motor will make 149.6bhp and 400Nm of torque, and will be offered in two versions called G and VRZ with the option of 2WD and 4WD. This oil-burner will also be offered with the choice of a six-speed manual or a six-speed auto box.
“In line with the spirit of Toyota, the all-new Fortuner incorporates features that are developed to deliver a car with performance that is capable of exceeding customer expectations for a true sport utility vehicle. Today, we are proud to introduce the all-new Fortuner with superior technology, product and service. All of this has been done to make sure that the all-new Fortuner is not only better than the previous models but at the same time it will lead the segment, " said President and Director of Toyota Indonesia, Hiroyuki Fukui.
