The new-generation Fortuner flaunts a new exterior design, comes with a new chassis, interior cabin is updated and is powered by new set of diesel engines. The 2016 Toyota Fortuner, along with the new-generation Toyota Innova, would be launched in India by the mid of 2016.

The petrol variant would not make it to India, and only diesel variants would be available in the Indian market. The variant nomenclature clearly suggests that the range-topping variant would come with a six-speed automatic gearbox and 4X4 drive system, while the base variant would have a six-speed manual transmission. Inside the cabin, the 2016 Fortuner would boast of a new center console with an integrated touch-screen system and air vents. As for safety features, it would get Smart Key System with Keyless Entry, push-button start, knee airbags, ABS+EBD, Brake Assist (BA), and Hill Assist Control as standard.

Mechanically, the new Toyota Fortuner would be powered by the company's newly-developed 'GD' series of diesel engines. The engine at helm would be a 2.8L, 4-cylinder unit with a maximum power of 177bhp and peeak torque of 420Nm. It is also being rumoured that a less powerful 2.4L, 4-cylinder diesel motor might also be offered with the entry-level variants of the new Fortuner. The engines would be paired with both 6-speed manual as well as auto transmissions, while similar to the Thai variants, 4X4 drive system would be available with top-end variant. The new SUV would be manufactured locally at Toyota's Bidadi plant in Karnataka from kits imported from Thailand.
