The 2016 Toyota Fortuner has been spied testing on the Indian street doing some test rounds. Wrapped in heavy camouflage, the next-generation Fortuner will most likely launch in the country by the end of this fiscal year or in the first half of the 2017. The car is already on sale in the international market like South Africa, Thailand, Australia and Middle East.
Speaking of the exterior, the Fortuner now follows the company’s new global design language that gives it bolder appearance than the existing model. In terms of dimensions, it wheel sits on the 2,750 mm long on the wheelbase that same to the outgoing model, but lengthwise, it is 90mm longer, 15mm wider but shorter in height by 15mm.

While in terms of features, the top-end variant will be equipped with LED projector headlights, LED DRLs, Down Hill Assist Control (DAC) system, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, electric tailgate, A-TRC Traction Control (TRC) system, cruise control, 7 inch T-Connect infotainment system with satellite navigation and reverse camera, and push button start/stop.
Under the hood, the next-gen Fortuner will be available with same engine specs like the Innova Crysta that with two diesel variants. The diesel will be available in two engine options - 2.4L or 2.8L four cylinder turbodiesel GD units, while these motors will get transmission options of a 6-speed manual and automatic, while a 4WD system could be offered in the top-end 2.8 variant and a petrol unit is available in the international market packed with a 2.7L VVT-i four cylinder engine connected to a 6-speed AT.
