New Toyota Fortuner 2016 price in India

The new Toyota Fortuner 2016 shares its platform with the recently launched Innova Crysta.

Attributed to swanky looks, powerful performance and spacious interior, Toyota Fortuner is a credible model in the premium SUV segment. Stepping into the second generation lately, Fortuner has witnessed sea change in aesthetic and mechanical terms with new engines powering the line-up. The 2.8-litre oilburner in the line-up replaces the previous 3.0-litre diesel unit and the 2.7-litre engine powers the petrol variants.

Both the engines on the carline have been borrowed from Innova Crysta, which also witnessed generation change in 2016. These engines come with a choice of two manuals and one auto unit supported by 4×2 drivetrain and an optional 4×4 system. In fact, Fortuner is one of the few SUVs in the premium SUV segment to offer a petrol engine. This gives an edge over rivals including Ford Endeavour, Chevrolet Trailblazer and Mitsubishi Pajero that lack petrol option.

Ruling the segment for a long time, Fortuner was first introduced in 2009. Just when sales started plummeting, Toyota revamped Fortuner with fresh design, more powerful engines and new equipment. Shortly after its launch in new avatar last year, Toyota announced that Fortuner has achieved the 1 lakh sales unit mark. Even the second gen model has received overwhelming response from customers as it continues its successful run in India. Check – Toyota Fortuner 2016 Interior & Exterior Image Gallery

      The new-generation Ford Endeavour, based on a ligther platform, will be more agile than the current one. Though it will be too early to compare its performance with the Endeavour now, since the product is yet to come to India.

    please advice

      The reason Toyota is delaying its launch is probably due to NGT’s ban on diesel cars above 2000cc in the national capita, which is quite a crucial market for the company. Also, NGT has given hints at imposing this ban in other states as well which is creating a lot of confusion among carmarkers in India. And the reason it’s called 2016 model is because globally it’s called 2016 model.

    Since this will be a similar spec to the Australian model. It would be good to know if the 4WD transfer case is still an old fashioned, Part Time, On Demand unit or hopefully a more modern Constant or Auto engaging unit as exists in the Prado, Endeavour, Pajero and many others.
    Constant 4WD allows 4WD to be used on hard surfaces or on surfaces which frequently change from wet to dry to hard to loose etc.
    Part Time, On Demand 4WD can only be used on loose surfaces as there is no allowance for slippage.
    Constant 4WD is a definite safety and performance advantage which why I’m asking.
