If we take a look quarter-wise, Toyota Kirloskar Motors (TKM) managed to retail 6,022 units of the Fortuner in the first three months of the year. That means, the SUV almost outsold annual sales of the Endeavour in the first quarter of 2018. The premium SUV recorded sales of 5,882 units in Q2, 5,242 units in Q3 and 4,654 units in Q4.
The Ford Endeavour, on the other hand, registered total sales of 1,835 units, 1,288 units, 1,465 units and 1,656 units in the Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4, 2018 respectively. Just so you know, the Japanese carmaker offered year-end discounts up to Rs 1.25 lakh on the Toyota Fortuner.
Currently, the Toyota Fortuner SUV lineup is available in two petrol and four diesel variants priced between Rs 27.58 lakh – Rs 33.28 lakh. While the 2.7L 4X2 MT and AT petrol variants are priced at Rs 27.58 lakh and Rs 29.17 lakh respectively, the diesel models cost between Rs 29.59 – Rs 33.28 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
Talking about the future plan, the carmaker is planning to give a mid-life update to the Fortuner SUV sometime in 2019. The facelifted model will witness subtle design and feature upgrades. The engine setup, however, is likely to remain unchanged. The existing 2.7L petrol and 2.8L diesel powertrains could be updated to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms.
