The new generation Fortuner is reportedly making its global premiere in the coming months on overseas markets before making its way to India early next year, according to Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM). A number of new models are now being developed by the Japanese automaker for India. The brand-new Urban Cruiser small SUV is anticipated to arrive in India shortly after the Urban Cruiser Hyryder did on August 16.
The latest generation Fortuner made its first appearance back in 2015 before entering dealerships in India in 2016. Over the years, it has lived up to expectations and served as a worthy replacement for the previous design. The seven-seater presently easily dominates the full-sized SUV market, and its lineup was recently increased with the addition of Legender and GR (Gazoo Racing) Sport models.
Here, we’ve provided you with a speculative rendering of the Toyota Fortuner, which is anticipated to be a more technologically sophisticated vehicle than the current model. This design is based on American SUVs. The front fascia has sharper LED headlights with integrated LED DRLs as well as an upright, prominent grille with hexagonal chrome elements.
Along with an aggressive-looking bonnet structure, raked front windshield, chromed window line, dual-tone alloy wheels, tall pillars and a huge greenhouse, large quarter glass, grey finished roof rails, etc., it also has a broader air intake and a muscular skid plate. In the production model, the back is also anticipated to receive significant modifications.
The current Fortuner is built on the same iMV2 platform as the Innova Crysta and Hilux. The Fortuner might keep its ladder frame chassis with considerable modifications while the Innova might choose the TNGA-B platform. A new electronic power steering system and an electronic platform with improved connection, assistance, and safety-related technology are most likely included.
A larger touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, wireless charger, 360-degree camera, revised instrument cluster, redesigned seats and surface finishes, updated dash and centre console, and better vehicle stability control and ADAS technology may also be included. The introduction of a hybrid 2.8-litre GD diesel engine with higher performance and fuel efficiency will be another significant improvement.
