Toyota Motor Philippines finally launched the much awaited, All New Fortuner! With this, Toyota came out with a sleeker design with a more powerful engine making this 2nd generation Fortuner a worthy successor to Toyota’s well loved mid-sized SUV.
Its longer and wider stance versus its previous generation makes the 2016 Fortuner look smarter and bolder from every angle. The dynamic front design is a stand-out for both urban and outdoor zones, through its slender, thicker and larger front fascia.
Its interior is bolder and more elegant. Its V grade comes in hues of dark brown, black and wood trim details while the G grade boasts colors of chamois black and dark wood trim details. The All-New Fortuner is also equipped with a capacitive touchscreen audio with navigation and a Multi-Information Display for both the G and the V grades. The G grade comes in sporty 17 inch alloy wheels while the V grade flashes a stylish set of 18 inch alloy wheels.
The 2nd generation Fortuner has a new new ***GD series engine. Its engine’s performance is maximized in the newly-developed six-speed transmission allowing the all-new Fortuner to balance power with fuel efficiency. Its new engine is alsoconsiderably more discreet in practical conditions – vibrations and road noise are well suppressed even on rough terrain. Also its handling and ride comfort has been improved on all road conditions.
The Fortuner driving experience has been brought to even greater heights as seen in its new, convenient and modern driving options. Its Drive Mode Select available in both the G and V grades allow the SUV to easily switch from more fuel efficient drives to more powerful rides.
For passenger safety, the all-new Fortuner (4×4 V only) is completely equipped with front, driver knee, side and curtain shield airbags. Moreover, vehicle operation is simplified with the adoption of the Push Start System and a Smart Keyless Entry that allows for easier entry to the vehicle. The doors can be locked/unlocked and the engine can be started/stopped simply by having the key in your pocket.
The All-New Fortuner is priced as follows:
The All-New SUV comes in seven (7) shades: Super White, Silver Metallic, Attitude Black Mica, Gray Metallic, White Pearl (additional P15,000) and its new colors Phantom Brown Metallic and Avant-Garde Bronze Metallic.
